Emerging Named Entity Recognition in a Medical Knowledge Management Ecosystem

Christian Nawroth, Felix Engel, Matthias Hemmje


In this paper, we present a knowledge engineering project in the medical domain. The objective of the project is to identify recent medical knowledge represented by emerging Named Entities. Hence, we introduce the concept of emerging Named Entities and present our studies on their occurrence and use in medical document corpora. We derive an approach for the emerging Named Entity Recognition utilizing textual and temporal features through Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning and present detailed evaluation results. Furthermore, we present a complementary system design that utilizes emerging Named Entity Recognition support several KE use cases in the medical domain.
