TIPS / BioCreative

In the period February-April 2017 the OntoGene/BioMeXt group participated in the TIPS challenge, part of BioCreative, the well-know initiative for the evaluation of Biomedical Text Mining Technologies. The goal of the challenge was to offer a continuously running and efficient web service for the annotation of biomedical entities in text. We achieved the best results according to several of the evaluation metrics, as shown in the picture below. 

Notice that the values above are averages over thousands of queries. They measure the entire time to satisfy a query, which includes: receiving from the evaluation server a document identifier, fetching the document from the original source (typically PubMed), processing that document, and delivering the annotation results back to the evaluation server.
