PREDOSE: Innovative Semantic Analysis of Social Media for Health

Kno.e.sis and the Center for Interventions, Treatment and Addictions Research (CITAR) have been awarded an interdisciplinary NIH-R21 grant to address the prescription drug abuse epidemic, recently acknowledged by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). The project, named PREDOSE for PREscription Drug abuse Online-Surveillance and Epidemiology, will combine text mining and semantic web technologies to automate information extraction and sentiment analysis using social media (tweets, web forums). The overall goal is to assist qualitative researchers with drug abuse surveillance and epidemiology using timely and relevant information present in large amounts of dynamic User-Generated Content (UGC). Leading the research effort are Dr. Raminta Daniulaityte of (CITAR) and Prof. Amit Sheth, LexisNexis Ohio Eminent Scholar and the director of Kno.e.sis.
