Last week I introduced the very first release of the OpenTrace tool at this year's WCRE conference in the lovely city of Kingston, Ontario. This 4-day event was the 19th conference on reverse engineering and hosted talks from research and industry on the state-of-the art techniques for program comprehension of software systems.
WikiSym is an international symposium on wikis and open collaborative techniques, mainly focused on wiki research and practice. Back in 2007, we coined the term "self-aware" wiki systems in our paper submitted to the WikiSym '07, fostering the idea that the integration of Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques within wiki systems allows the wiki systems to read, understand, transform, and even write their own content, as well as supporting their users in information analysis and content development. Now after a few years, we have realized this idea through an open service-oriented architecture.
Le 80ème congrès annuel de l'Association francophone pour le savoir - Acfas a accueilli mycoMINE, notre système de fouille de texte sémantique dédié à la recherche de biocarburants de seconde génération. Nous avons présenté son intégration dans un wiki ainsi que dans un portail web personnalisé.
Last week I presented our Semantic Assistants Eclipse plug-in at the IBM Conference of Advances studies in Markham, Ontario. CASCON is a conference hosted by IBM's Centre for Advanced Studies (CAS) in partnership with NSERC with the goal of showcasing various research projects in progress by individuals in academia, industry and the general public.
I presented our paper "Semantic Text Mining for Lignocellulose Research" at DTMBIO 2011 last week. Now, our mycoMINE system is officially born !
MutationFinder is a freely available resource for tagging mutations in biomedical texts. However, it cannot be directly integrated into a text mining pipeline when using the General Architecture for Text Engineering (GATE) framework. Here, I show how to make it available to GATE users using the standard TaggerFramework component, which requires some text wrangling.
