BabyTalk is investigating ways of summarising and presenting patient information to medical professionals and family members. Our focus is on data in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

This involves the use of Intelligent Signal Processing to analyse and interpret the available information about the patient, and Natural Language Generation techniques to generate coherent, readable summaries of this information in English.

Our ultimate aim is to use this technology to provide decision support to medical professionals, who base treatment on large amounts of information. Summaries will also help to keep family members informed about the condition of their baby.
