While the medical domain has a wealth of data, much of it is unstructured and poorly formatted. Doctors’ and nurses’ notes are notoriously noisy and often contain incomplete sentences, run-ons, and invented acronyms. This lack of structure in medical text confounds traditional NLP methods that rely on sentence structure to infer entities and relationships. However, this problem is not unique to the medical domain.  Anyone trying to analyze web searches, social media posts, or any poorly formatted text face similar challenges. The core issue is that many NLP methods depend on well formatted text for analysis and break down when dealing with poorly formatted text. In this talk, John and Krishna will present a number of methods that can be used to wrangle messy text for various machine learning and NLP use cases, within and outside of the medical domain.
