Efficient data retrieval becomes increasingly crucial in the era of Big Data. Within the data, around 80%~90% potentially useful information is presented in unstructured form, such as texts etc.
The biomedical semantic understanding group(BioSun) is led by Professor Chen Li and focuses on designing state-of-the-art algorithms of Natural Language Processing and artificial intelligent methods of bioinformatics to achieve automated knowledge discovery from vast amount texts and images. In lay words, we teach computers to understand texts and be able to think like human.
