Talks and Events

2022 Talk: A Knowledge Graph-Based Approach To Named Entity Disambiguation For Healthcare Applications

This presentation will show how to leverage a Named Entity Disambiguation (NED) system to disambiguate named entities in the healthcare domain and combine multiple knowledge graphs and ontologies in a single valuable source of truth. Our approach incorporates node embeddings into the NED model, employing the KG structure for the training process. The tool can support different healthcare applications, including literature search and retrieval, clinical decision making, relational knowledge findings, chatbots for health assistance, and recommendation tools for patients and medical practitioners.
