抄録

More and more biomedical documents are digitally written and stored. To make the most of the rich resources, it is crucial to precisely locate the information pertinent to user's interests. An obstacle in finding information in natural language text is negations, which deny or reverse the meaning of a sentence. This is especially problematic in the biomedical domain since scientific findings and clinical records often contain negated expressions to state negative effects or the absence of symptoms. This paper reports on our work on a hybrid approach to negation identification combining statistical and heuristic approaches and describes an implementation of the approach, named NegFinder, as a Web service.More and more biomedical documents are digitally written and stored.
