Today I explored the UIMA SDK from IBM. It is a software system that analyses large volumes of unstructured information, discover, organize and deliver relevant knowledge. An example they have sited as an application of UIMA is to find potential drug interactions by processing millions of medical abstracts. I will try to explore its application in medical diagnostics and find out whether I can use it in some way for my virtual dermatologist I am working on. Probably it has some applications in bioinformatics too!
