Kick-off Meeting KHRESMOI project 12-13 October 2010

Funded under the 7th EU framework programme the project "Knowledge Helper for for Medical and Other Information users" starts with 1 September 2010. The Kick-off Meeting will take place on Tuesday the 12th and Wednesday the 13th of October in Vienna, in the building of the Vienna Society of Physicians, Frankgasse 8, 1090 Vienna.



The project consortium welcomes the EU project commissioner Werner Janusch and Najeeb Al-Shorbaji, Director of Knowledge Management and Sharing, WHO, Switzerland, among others to discuss problems and implications of online access to health information.

Khresmoi aims to develop a multi-lingual multi-modal search and access system for biomedical information and documents. Through a combination of the following technologies and approaches the consortium plans to provide better solutions to the problem of accessing high quality medical information:

  • Effective automated information extraction from biomedical documents, including improvements using crowd sourcing and active learning, and automated estimation of the level of trust and target user expertise
  • Automated analysis and indexing for medical images in 2D (X-Rays), 3D (MRI, CT), and 4D (MRI with a time component)
  • Linking information extracted from unstructured or semi-structured biomedical texts and images to structured information in knowledge bases
  • Support of cross-language search, including multi-lingual queries, and returning machine-translated pertinent excerpts
  • Adaptive user interfaces to assist in formulating queries and display search results via ergonomic and interactive visualizations
