THE TRANSINSIGHT BIOASQ AWARD FOR SEMANTIC INTELLIGENCE 2014 GOES TO THE NCBI TEAM
Going beyond IBM’s Watson: Computer-based question answering gets into the next round. An almost double number of participants in the BioASQ competition over last year shows the importance of the topic.
The Award for Semantic Intelligence, sponsored by Transinsight, was handed over to the participants who took part in all tasks and achieved the best overall results. This year’s winners are Yuqing Mao, Chih-Hsuan Wei, Zhiyong Lu from NIH / NLM / NCBI. “We are very pleased to hand over the second Award for Semantic Intelligence to this team since they pushed the limits in the area of Semantic Indexing and Question Answering again to a new level. Demonstrating the overall best performance shows an outstanding ability in natural language processing. Our warmest congratulations!” said Dr. Michael R. Alvers, CEO of Transinsight.
