  • By now, you've probably heard of Kotlin and may have even taken a look at some of its features. And you might be wondering what the big deal is. Sure, it's got some nicer syntax—and what else? The thing about Kotlin though is that it's not about a list of features but how, together and in harmony, these features lead to a more enjoyable and productive development experience. In this talk, we're go...

  • Secondary use of large amounts of clinical data requires a method to quickly process such data in such a way that researchers can quickly extract cohorts of interest for a given study. We present two advances in the High Throughput Phenotyping NLP system which support the aim of truly high throughput processing of clinical data, inspired by a characterization of the linguistic properties of such d...

  • In the ideal world, software developers would analyze each problem in the language of its domain and then articulate solutions in matching terms. In the real world, however, programmers use a mainstream programming language someone else picked for them. The Racket project seeks to address this problem by utilizing the emerging idea of language-oriented programming. In this video, Matthias Felleise...
