Recognizing entities is a fundamental step towards understanding a piece of text – but entities alone only tell half the story. The other half comes from explaining the relationships between entities. Spark NLP for Healthcare includes state-of-the-art (SOTA) deep learning models that address this issue by semantically relating entities in unstructured data.
John Snow Labs has developed multiple models utilizing BERT architectures with custom feature generation to achieve peer-reviewed SOTA accuracy on multiple benchmark datasets. This session will shed light on the background and motivation behind relation extraction, techniques, real-world use cases, and practical code implementation.
