Effective Search of Conceptual Patterns
with Applications in Medical Informatics


Project Summary

The project EVTIMA investigates methods for effective search of conceptual patterns. It aims at finding out technologies, which enable efficient processing of large information archives. The project aims at an ambitious eperiment with semantic resources which are extracted automatically from medical texts. The first project stage starts with the design and planning of the experiment: how to extract internal representations from medical patient records. The second project stage considers various ways of structuring the extracted information in template patterns.

EVTIMA is supported by the Bulgarian National Science Fund under grant DO02-292 in the track IDEAS. The project duration is 36 months, by June 2012.
