YLab: Empower Healthcare with Artificial Intelligence

YLab is an interdisciplinary research group led by Prof. Jie Yang, our group members come from various disciplines such as medical informatics, medicine, public health, pharmaceutical sciences, and linguistics. Our interests focus on natural language processing in healthcare/public health. Specifically, we are interested in:

  • Disease early-detection/diagnosis/treatment prediction using electronic health records and other clinical data sources;
  • Data analysis on healthcare-related data (e.g. telemedicine, social media).
  • Natural language processing.

We have developed several popular NLP tools (including NCRF++, LatticeLSTM and YEDDA), which attracted more than 5000 stars at GitHub.

We have built closed collaboration relationships with top-tier institutes, including Harvard University, University of Oxford, National University of Singapore, Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
