Biomedical text natural language processing (BioNLP) using scispaCy

Here we are going to see how to use scispaCy named entity recognition (NER) models to identify drug and disease names mentioned in a medical transcription dataset. Moreover, we are going to combine NER and rule-based matching to extract the drug names and dosages reported in each transcription.

Tolkien character or prescription drug name?

Classification using character-level Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) neural networks

Tolkien character or prescription drug name?

Bilbo, Silenor, Avandaryl, Nardil, Cymbalta. Only one of these is actually the name of a character created by J.R.R.Tolkien, author of the classic *The Lord of the Rings* trilogy. Could we solve this problem using artificial neural networks?
