Deriving an English Biomedical Silver Standard Corpus for CLEF-ER


Lewin, Ian; Clematide, Simon (2013). Deriving an English Biomedical Silver Standard Corpus for CLEF-ER. In: CLEF 2013: Evaluation Labs and Workshop: Online Working Notes, Valencia, Spain, 23 September 2013 - 26 September 2013.

Abstract

We describe the automatic harmonization method used for building the English Silver Standard annotation supplied as a data source for the multilingual CLEF-ER named entity recognition challenge. The use of an automatic Silver Standard is designed to remove the need for a costly and time-consuming expert annotation. The final voting threshold of 3 for the harmonization of 6 different annotations from the project partners kept 45% of all available concept centroids. On average, 19% (SD 14%) of the original annotations are removed. 97.8% of the partner annotations that go into the Silver Standard Corpus have exactly the same boundaries as their harmonized representations.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
