Automatic Extraction of Structured Information from Genomic Reports

In this talk, I will provide an overview of some use cases based on clinical reports that can utilize Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques to extract information from unstructured data.

One such example is in the field of genomic testing, where NLP can be used to process clinical reports stored in PDF format and extract relevant information that can enable precision medicine, research, and clinical decision making.

The talk will cover the end-to-end pipeline developed for extracting information from genomic reports and provide a brief overview of the NLP techniques used in the process.
