Fraunhofer SCAI Successfully Completes Pilot Project on Information Extraction from Chinese Scientific Literature

View as: Print Mobile App Share:

The Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing (SCAI) recently completed a pilot Chinese text mining project.

The pilot project was started as a feasibility study to evaluate how far current text mining technology could support automated information extraction from Chinese text sources such as scientific publications and patent literature. The researchers used a specially adapted version of ProMiner, recognition software developed at Fraunhofer SCAI, to meet the requirements of text mining in Chinese scientific biomedical and pharmaceutical literature.

"We have just demonstrated that we are able to mine the Chinese biomedical scientific literature automatically," says Fraunhofer SCAI professor Juliane Fluck. "The real work--which is aiming at providing all functionalities needed for true knowledge discovery from Chinese unstructured text sources--starts now, after the proof-of-principle."

In addition, the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research will use the technology to collaborate with the Chinese Institute of Policy and Management on monitoring Chinese research, innovation, and markets.
