Text Machine Lab

The Text Machine Lab at UMass Lowell conducts research in natural language processing. Our current projects span the following research areas:

  • clinical natural language processing, including information extraction, and predictive modeling using clinical patient records.
  • text-based temporal reasoning
  • crowdsourcing knowledge generation for text processing.
  • digital knowledge and sentiment tracking for digital humanities and social science.
  • computational lexical semantics, distributional analysis and machine learning techniques for representing lexical meaning.
We develop and employ data-informed statistical machine learning techniques for robust information extraction and knowledge engineering methods that leverage human behavior for information harvesting.
