Hello Community! Posting the NLP workgroup agenda on behalf of Vipina Keloth who is hosting this meeting at the 2023 OHDSO Global Symposium.

Natural Language Processing Workgroup at the OHDSI Global Symposium


Saturday, Oct. 21, 8am-12pm

The Natural Language Processing Workgroup will hold an exciting 4-hour session discussing all the amazing work our community has been doing over the past year. From the progress we made to demonstrate the utility of unstructured data in observational studies with our Note_NLP proposal to what’s on every NLP enthusiast’s mind these days, the Large Language models (LLMs), we are eager to share with you what we learned and hear from you what you have been working on. We welcome everyone to join us in person @ Hilton East Brunswick, New Jersey.

What’s in store for you:

“Making NLP-derived data actionable within the OHDSI ecosystem” – a proof-of-concept study validating the utility of the Note_NLP proposal. Speaker: Michael Gurley - Northwestern University

Interested in Oncology, Psychiatry, or Social determinants of health? Join us to know the progress of our ongoing studies and let us know if you would like to join. Speakers: Michael Gurley - Northwestern University, Andrew Williams - Tufts University

One question that we always get – “How do we evaluate the NLP methods for studies within the OHDSI framework? You all asked and here we deliver expecting your comments and feedback– our draft on the NLP validation process. Speaker: Daniel Smith - Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University
