You are invited to participate in an international challenge to create and train computationally intelligent algorithms on clinical free-text. The goal is to assign all relevant codes (called ICD-9-CM codes) to short pieces of texts. The Challenge provides an international opportunity for research groups to compare the applicability of their natural language processing and computationally intelligent algorithms on actual medical data.
Challenge organizers include Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center Division of Biomedical Informatics, the University of Cincinnati, Department of Radiology, Ohio State University's Department of Linguistics, Nicolaus Copernicus University, and the Center for Computational Pharmacology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
The Challenge is partly funded by an Ohio Third Frontier, Wright Center of Innovation grant. Travel awards are generously donated by Cincom Systems.
