INTERNSHIP NLP IN HEALTHCARE

Prime Vision delivers advanced Artificial Intelligence solutions to customers all over the world. The core techniques of Prime Vision focus on automatic reading of text and image recognition. With these techniques Prime Vision is able to deliver high performance solutions for our customers in various markets.

In the elderly care much time is spent on producing  (digital) paperwork; reports that are used as input for diagnosing patients and reports for monitoring a patient progress or well-being. Especially in long-term care, the amount of produced text data is large while distilling important information proves difficult requiring specialized resources and time consuming: Although a care life plan is the framework for reporting, daily reporting often misses putting developments in the context of clear goals.

We believe Artificial Intelligence can support improving the quality of reporting and diagnostics whilst reducing the efforts. One of our idea’s is to use machine learning to suggest care life plan goals using large amount of textual diagnostic reporting as training material. Another idea is to use this data to  make connections between actual goals identified and goals to be suggested. To realize these ideas we are in the search of interns.

WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?

The goal of this internship is to develop a first prototype algorithm to suggest care goals from text. We propose that the project will contain the following topics:

-  Literature study

-  Ground Truth collection

-  Algorithm implementation

  • Based on the literature study an algorithm should be chosen and implemented.
  • When time allows it is interesting to implement a secondary algorithm

-  Validation experiments

  • Evaluation of the implemented algorithm
  • A comparison to the ground truth or to a secondary algorithm.

-  Report

WHAT DO WE REQUIRE FROM YOU?

For this assignment we are looking for an intern with relevant knowledge and interest in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. Preferably the intern has a working knowledge of computer programming and has a hands-on approach to developing software. For Deep Learning Prime Vision is currently using Tensorflow (www.tensorflow.org) in Python as the main test platform. Hands on experience with Tensorflow and Python is preferred.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM US?

Our company is all about innovation in IT.  We converge the knowledge from our long history and experience in deep learning and the latest Computer Vision capabilities to create a fertile ground for innovative thinkers and problem solvers.

At the R&D department, you will work with some of the best brains in the industry busy concocting new software. You will be properly supervised during your internship and be given the scope for you to get the best out of yourself. Naturally, we provide suitable work placement compensation.
