Computational lingistics and NLP
Computational linguistics is an interdisciplinary field concerned with the application of computational techniques to linguistic analysis.
NLP has been used in healthcare for a long time now and it has been able to improve patient outcomes by reducing misdiagnosis rates, improving patient safety, and helping physicians make better decisions.
Natural Language Processing (NLP) is the process of analyzing and understanding human language, as well as producing it. This technology has been around for a while now with the first patent being filed in 1966. Today NLP can be used in healthcare to extract information from natural language text which can then be used by physicians to make clinical decisions
