Paper Abstract

Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) models have been widely used for sequence labeling applications in different domains. This paper presents an RNN-based sequence labeling approach with the ability to learn long-term labeling dependencies. The proposed model has been successfully used for a Named Entity Recognition challenge in healthcare: anatomical phrase labeling in radiology reports. The model was trained on labeled data from a radiology report corpus and tested on two independent datasets. The proposed model achieved promising performance in comparison with other state-of-the-art context-driven sequence labeling approaches.
