Information Extraction for Chemical Reactions with University of Melbourne

Project Details

Description

Text mining and relation extraction, are challenging NLP tasks, that become only harder when we deal with chemical texts, and in particular chemical patents. Chemical patents are at the same time a key source of chemical information regarding new compounds and their synthesis, and linguistically very complex and ambiguous documents. Through a large grant awarded by the Australian Research Council, Professor Karin Verspoor at the University of Melbourne is leading a project to extract chemical reaction information from chemical patents.
