Key Challenges for Commercial Text Miners

In biomedical research and development, researchers use text mining tools to extract and interpret facts, assertions, and relationships from vast amounts of published information. Mining accelerates the research process, increases discovery of novel findings, and helps companies identify potential safety issues in the drug development process. However, despite the many benefits of text mining, researchers face a number of obstacles before they even get a chance to run queries against the body of biomedical literature.
