Norwegian Center for E-health Research, Tromsø, 22 Nov 2017

I was invited to the Norwegian Center for E-health Research (Nasjonalt senter for e-helseforskning),  in Tromsø, north Norway to be part of the Workshop on health analytics: using language technology and machine learning on clinical text.
There were over 25 participants speaking over 20 languages (incl Sami of course).
I presented part of my co0ming text book Clinical text mining: Secondary use of electronic patient records and specifically the parts that treated applications.
Robert Jenssen from the University of Tromsø had a very pedagogical presentation about deep learning. There were several other speakers as well.
Tromsø is north of the Polar circle and today started the Polar night for another 2 months.
