The UK National Centre for Text Mining (NaCTeM) is the first publicly funded text mining center in the world. Its objective is to provide text mining services in response to the requirements of the UK academic community. NaCTeM’s initial focus is on bioscience and biomedical texts as there is an increasing need for bio-text mining and automated methods to search, access, extract, integrate and manage textual information from large-scale bio-resources. The Centre’s remit is also to make significant contributions to the text mining research community, both nationally and internationally. As part of previous and ongoing collaboration, NaCTeM involves, as self-funded partners, world-leading groups at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), the University of California at Berkeley (UCB), the University of Geneva and the University of Tokyo. This talk will focus on NaCTeM’s current activities and future plans.
