Natural language processing (NLP) is the ability of computers to understand human speech. It is a sub-field of artificial intelligence concerned about computer interactions with natural human languages. NLP has been successfully applied to many practical use cases and that includes clinical/biomedical text.

In this webinar, attendees will learn how Natural Language Processing can be used in understanding clinical areas. As a practical use case, the session will include a hands-on session on how to apply Named Entity Recognition for clinical text mining.
