The Open Health Natural Language Processing Consortium

The goal of the Open Health Natural Language Processing Consortium is to establish an open source consortium to promote past and current development efforts and to encourage participation in advancing future efforts. The purpose of this consortium is to facilitate and encourage new annotator and pipeline development, exchange insights and collaborate on novel biomedical natural language processing systems and develop gold-standard corpora for development and testing. The Consortium promotes the open source UIMA framework and SDK as the basis for biomedical NLP systems. Applications created within UIMA consist of software components (referred to as annotators) and their associated configuration files and external resources. Within the framework, one can also create complete pipelines composed of a sequence of annotators and the data flow between them.
