    Ning Kang
    Department of Medical Informatics, Erasmus University Medical Center, P, O, Box 2040, 3000, CA, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
    BMC Bioinformatics 15:64. 2014
    ..The performance of the system was evaluated on the ADE corpus, consisting of 1644 abstracts with manually annotated adverse drug events. Fifty abstracts were used for training, the remaining abstracts were used for testing...
  2. doi Using an ensemble system to improve concept extraction from clinical records
    Ning Kang
    Department of Medical Informatics, Erasmus University Medical Center, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
    J Biomed Inform 45:423-8. 2012
    ..The ensemble-based approach is straightforward and allows the balancing of precision versus recall of the combined system. The ensemble system is freely available and can easily be extended, integrated in other systems, and retrained...

    Ning Kang
    Department of Medical Informatics, Erasmus University Medical Center, P, O, Box 2040, 3000 CA Rotterdam, The Netherlands
    BMC Bioinformatics 13:17. 2012
    ..We explored two use scenarios: one in which chunkers are trained on an SSC in a new domain for which a GSC is not available, and one in which chunkers are trained on an available, although small GSC but supplemented with an SSC...
  4. doi Comparing and combining chunkers of biomedical text
    Ning Kang
    Department of Medical Informatics, Erasmus University Medical Center, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
    J Biomed Inform 44:354-60. 2011
    ..The combination of chunker results by a simple voting scheme can further improve performance and allows for different precision-recall settings...

    Ning Kang
    Department of Medical Informatics, Erasmus University Medical Center, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
    J Am Med Inform Assoc 20:876-81. 2013
    ..Popular concept normalization tools in the biomedical field are dictionary-based. In this study we investigate the usefulness of natural language processing (NLP) as an adjunct to dictionary-based concept normalization...
