IDEAL-X information extraction system employs adaptive learning, and could be parameterized by controlled vocabularies over the given reports. The system adheres to and extends the workflow of a previous system, ASLForm.

  • The system is domain-agnostic and therefore can be adapted by different working environments easily.
  • There are no configurations or pre-existing training sets required, thus the system avoids costly engagement of annotator and linguistic experts.
  • The system provides an intuitive interface and interaction, and it learns covertly from users’ interactions without disruptive user engagements. This significantly simplifies the user effort.
  • Improvement to the decision model of the system occurs continuously and incrementally, which renders increasingly accurate output optimized for the targeted clinical application.
