Temporal Sequence

Philip Bramsen, in his MIT Master's thesis for Regina Barzilay, developed a technique for reconstructing a partial order time-line from the out-of-order descriptions of events in New England Journal of Medicine Clinical Pathological Conference cases. The basic idea was (1) to use machine learning from an annotated corpus to identify boundaries between sections of text that refer to different segments of time. For example, words such as earlier, later, in 1998, etc., could indicate such breaks. Then, (2) learn a partial order among different segments, and (3) eliminate the least likely contradictory relationships, to form a final partial order. His work is reported in an AMIA 2006 paper and in an EMNLP paper:
