Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page)

Disease surveillance system Bio-medical term extraction is a key
technology for a surveillance system of epidemic disease news from the
Web. In the previous work we applied statistical learning model to
extract terms from the Web site. The previous approach is good at
extracting terms with high precision rates; however it is weak at
extracting new terms that do not exist in the training data. Since we
usually have new disease names a new term extraction approach with high
coverage for unknown or low-frequent terms is needed. Recently, Simple
rule Language (SRL), a rule-based word extraction language, is freely
available. The SRL also has an developing environment called SRL
editor. Thus we are constructing rules of bio-medical terms on the
several language (such as English, Japanese, Thai and Vietnam) for the
multilingual disease surveillance system. In this manuscript we confirm
how we construct rules to extract Japanese bio-medical terms from
Japanese news articles.
