The event ‘OpenMinTeD: Paving the way for text and data mining in science’ marks the official launch of the OpenMinTeD platform (www.openminted.eu, services.openminted.eu). We would like to invite you to join us for a live discussion on the way forward.
To join the event, a registration via Eventbrite is required here.
As part of the OpenMinTeD project, INRA has been working on a text mining application dedicated to food microbiology. This infographic will tell you the story.
With a tasty bite of cheese necessarily come some microbial strains. Some of them are well known, but the presence of others can puzzle researchers and they might want to investigate why they are there. A better understanding of microorganisms, their interaction and their adaptation to their environment are important issues for research and industry. It could help improve public health or develop innovative products.
To make sense of the huge amount of scientific text and data available, we need text and data mining (TDM). The European project OpenMinTeD has been paving the way for TDM in science by working on an infrastructure for the past three years. We would like to invite you to join us for our event in Brussels on May 24th. Learn about best practices in TDM, perspectives of different stakeholders, the GDPR and the future of TDM and OpenMinTeD.
What is text mining, how does it work and why is it useful? This article will help you understand the basics in just a few minutes.
Dr Jane Reed is Head of Life Science Strategy at Linguamatics, a UK-based company which makes TDM tools to help companies in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. She spoke to OpenMinTed about how TDM is being used to speed up drug discoveries and treat patients, and gave a vision for the future of text and data mining.
