The Text Machine Lab for Natural Language Processing
The Text Machine Lab at UMass Lowell conducts research in natural
language processing. Our current projects span the following research areas:
- clinical natural language processing, including information
extraction, and predictive modeling using clinical patient records.
- crowdsourcing knowledge generation for text processing.
- digital knowledge tracking for digital humanities and social science.
- computational lexical semantics, distributional analysis and machine
learning techniques for representing lexical meaning.
We develop and employ data-informed statistical machine learning
techniques for robust information extraction and knowledge engineering
methods that leverage human behavior for information harvesting.
