Progress on the ODIE Toolkit

A few months ago, we quietly released ODIE 1.0 on the NCBO GForge site. ODIE
is an application that let's researchers (1) analyze text corpora using
BioPortal ontologies to map text to BioPortal concepts, and (2) identify
candidate concepts within text corpora that could be considered for addition
to an existing ontology. The ODIE project has made some significant advances
this year - including (1) complete redesign to use the UIMA platform, (2)
integration of Mayo cTAKES pipeline into ODIE, (3) addition of a simple
co-reference resolution algorithm as UIMA resource, and (4) addition of
statistical as well as linguistic methods for discovering candidate
concepts. In addition to the software, we've been working on developing
co-reference corpora, and testing a variety of existing methods for ontology
enrichment using domain experts and ontology developers as judges. This talk
will demonstrate the latest release and will sample some of the year's
research project findings. I will also preview the upcoming release – ODIE
1.1 which includes improved installation, visualization, placement of
candidate concepts and export of proposals as OWL files.
