Biomedical Domain Specific Features

Although a general library, Augmentext has a special focus on biomedical text, such as

  • Replacement of mm/g^2 with common mistakes, e.g. g/mm^2 etc.
  • Conversion of units from metric to imperial/customary and vice versa
  • Integration of SNOMED, ICD, MeSH, RxNorm and other text corpora in to the augmentation pipeline
  • Synonym replacement using pre-trained models using GloVe, fasttext, and word2vec.
