What can NLP tell us about BioNLP?

Using NLP techniques to analyze collections of papers in the field can tell us a lot about the research topics, trends and researchers. The Brandeis students working on MedLingMap did extensive analysis of several years of BioNLP proceedings and found what topics are on the rise and which are waning. They also found key researchers and connections between the authors. We are currently working on how to integrate this information into MedLingMap to create a web of connections that can be displayed visually and used for search. Stay tuned for the results next month!
