LE LEADER LINGUAMATICS DÉCROCHE UNE SUBVENTION POUR L'EXPLORATION MULTILINGUE DE TEXTES BIOMÉDICAUX.

Un facteur clé pour une exploration de texte réussie est l'utilisation de bases terminologiques fouillées renfermant les différentes manières dont un concept peut être exprimé. Or, bien que des bases terminologiques étendues existent pour l'anglais, cela n'est pas nécessairement vrai pour les autres langues.

Selon Wikipedia, un mantra est un « groupe de sons, syllabes ou mots capable de créer une transformation ». MANTRA est également l'acronyme très à propos d'un nouveau projet de recherche financé par l'Union européenne baptisé « Multilingual Annotation of Named entities and Terminological Resource Acquisition » (annotation multilingue d'entités nommées et acquisition de ressources terminologiques), auquel Linguamatics a le plaisir d'annoncer sa participation en tant que partenaire commercial.

Le projet MANTRA vise à enrichir des bases terminologiques multilingues dans le domaine biomédical par l'exploitation de corpus parallèles en différentes langues. Par exemple, sachant qu'un brevet français (revendications 4, 5 et 6) fait référence à une enzyme ramifiante, il devrait être possible de découvrir le synonyme allemand précédemment inconnu Verzweigungsenzym à partir des revendications 4, 5 et 6 de la traduction allemande. Le nouveau synonyme peut alors être utilisé pour l'analyse d'autres ensembles de documents. Des bases terminologiques dans une langue et les mêmes documents dans d'autres langues peuvent être explorés simultanément pour produire des bases terminologiques enrichies dans ces autres langues.

Parmi les participants à ce projet de deux ans figurent l'université de Zurich (CH), la Friedrich-Schiller University of Jena (DE), l'Erasmus Medical Centre Rotterdam (NL), Averbis GmbH (DE) et l'EMBL-EBI (European BioInformatics Institute) (DE).

Linguamatics travaillera à la fois aux phases de recherche du projet et à la présentation des avantages qu'offre l'utilisation de son moteur d'exploration de texte de pointe I2E.

Présentation de Linguamatics et de la plateforme d'exploration de texte I2E

Linguamatics est le leader mondial du déploiement de solutions d'exploration de texte innovantes basées sur le traitement automatisé du langage naturel et destinées à la découverte de connaissances à valeur élevée ainsi qu'au support à la décision. La plateforme I2E de Linguamatics est utilisée par des structures commerciales, universitaires et gouvernementales, dont neuf des dix premières entreprises pharmaceutiques mondiales. La plateforme I2E permet l'exploration d'un large éventail de textes, par exemple de documents scientifiques, de brevets, de donnnées d'essais cliniques, de flux d'actualités et de contenus exclusifs. Elle est disponible comme système d'entreprise interne, comme service géré et sous forme dématérialisée selon le modèle Saas (Software-as-a-Service).

Applications les plus courantes :

  • Identification de relations entre gènes et maladies, et identification potentielle de nouvelles cibles thérapeutiques
  • Découverte de biomarqueurs
  • Repositionnement de médicaments
  • Sécurité des médicaments
  • Analyse de brevets
  • Sélection de site et conception d'étude pour les essais cliniques
  • Exploration des dossiers médicaux électroniques afin d'améliorer la prédiction des résultats
  • Médecine translationnelle
  • Renseignements concurrentiels
  • Exploration des médias sociaux
  • Analyse de sentiment

Le projet MANTRA en bref

Le projet MANTRA fournira des bases terminologiques multilingues et des documents multilingues avec annotation sémantique, par exemple, des brevets, afin d'améliorer l'accessibilité des informations scientifiques pour les documents multilingues. Le projet exploitera ces ensembles de documents multilingues pour collecter des termes et des formulations de concepts dans différentes langues et ainsi enrichir les ressources terminologiques actuellement disponibles telles que MeSH.

Any Ops team trying to support a company in today’s cloud-connected world knows that a new way of thinking is required – one just as dramatic than the shift from Ops to DevOps. The diversity of modern operations requires teams to focus their impact on breadth vs. depth. In his session at DevOps Summit, Adam Serediuk, Director of Operations at xMatters, Inc., will discuss the strategic requirements of evolving from Ops to DevOps, and why modern Operations has begun leveraging the “NoOps” approa...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Organizations from small to large are increasingly adopting cloud solutions to deliver essential business services at a much lower cost. According to cyber security experts, the frequency and severity of cyber-attacks are on the rise, causing alarm to businesses and customers across a variety of industries. To defend against exploits like these, a company must adopt a comprehensive security defense strategy that is designed for their business. In 2015, organizations such as United Airlines, Sony...
Amazon and Google have built software-defined data centers (SDDCs) that deliver massively scalable services with great efficiency. Yet, building SDDCs has proven to be a near impossibility for ‘normal’ companies without hyper-scale resources. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, David Cauthron, founder and chief executive officer of Nimboxx, will discuss the evolution of virtualization (hardware, application, memory, storage) and how commodity / open source hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) so...
In their Live Hack” presentation at 17th Cloud Expo, Stephen Coty and Paul Fletcher, Chief Security Evangelists at Alert Logic, will provide the audience with a chance to see a live demonstration of the common tools cyber attackers use to attack cloud and traditional IT systems. This “Live Hack” uses open source attack tools that are free and available for download by anybody. Attendees will learn where to find and how to operate these tools for the purpose of testing their own IT infrastructu...
The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...
