Siting Liang; Mareike Hartmann; Daniel Sonntag

In: 2022 Annual Conference of the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics. NAACL Workshop on Bridging Human-Computer Interaction and Natural Language Processing (HCI+NLP-2022), located at NAACL 2022, October 15 - July 15, Seattle, Washington, USA, Association for Computational Linguistics, 7/2022.


This paper presents our project proposal for extracting biomedical information from German clinical narratives with limited amounts of annotations. We first describe the applied strategies in transfer learning and active learning for solving our problem. After that, we discuss the design of the user interface for both supplying model inspection and obtaining user annotations in the interactive environment.
