To make research-relevant data not only digitally available but also extractable, Natural Language Processing and text mining tools as well as a semantic search engine are developed. In the course of this workshop, we will give theoretical and practical introduction to these methods. Based on BIOfid´s tools participants will analyse digital texts, extract data and explore them.
The BIOfid-portal is still in its trial phase. We therefore welcome feedback and suggestions of the participants for further development, technical improvement, and adaptation to specific user requirements.
Own laptop and Wifi-access (Eduroam or BayernWLAN are provided) are required for the practical part.
