  • Publication number: 20210272663
    Abstract: A parameter DB (133) stores importance level information indicating an importance level of each element constituting a medical treatment record text indicated by medical treatment record information and being acquired by performing text analysis on the medical treatment record text, the importance level information being generated based on the element and a summary text relating to the medical treatment record text. An employed element estimator (114) estimates an element constituting a summary text, based on the importance level information and an element constituting a medical treatment record text indicated by new medical treatment record information and being acquired by performing text analysis on the new medical treatment record text. Further, the employed element estimator (114) generates new importance level information, based on a summary text after being corrected along a correction content received by a correction receiver (117) and an element constituting the new medical treatment record text.

  • Publication number: 20210271990
    Abstract: A theme phrase feature value calculation unit 103 calculates a feature value Fq of a given theme phrase Q based on the cosine similarity with a feature keyword of a feature keyword DB 107b. A positive/negative example determination unit 104 applies the feature value Fq to a positive/negative example determination model to determine whether a response phrase A is a positive example or a negative example. A response phrase score calculation unit 105 calculates the cosine similarity between the theme phrase Q and a plurality of theme phrases that form a pair with a response phrase A determined to be a positive example, and the highest value of the calculated cosine similarity is set as a score of the response phrase A. A response phrase selection unit 106 selects the response phrase indicating the maximum score as the response phrase for the theme phrase Q.

  • Publication number: 20210257067
    Abstract: According to one embodiment of the present invention, sets of medical record data that have a common development order of diseases to be focused on and different times until the diseases develop are selected from medical record data, a feature indicating a health state of a user is extracted from each piece of medical record data constituting the set for each of the sets of the medical record data, the extracted feature is set as training data, a risk score for a co-occurrence or an occurrence of a complication of each of the diseases is calculated based on examination data of a first-year examination and a time until each of the diseases occur, and the risk score is set as correct answer data. At this time, the development risk score is calculated such that a user having a short elapsed time until development has a larger value than a user having a long elapsed time until development.

  • Publication number: 20200402418
    Abstract: The number n of times of chewing is counted by chewing number of times calculation means (13b2) based on a change in the distance l from a photorefiector (50), which is received together with time t by measurement value receiving means (13b1). To vary hardness h of a bag (30) to a stage that can be sensed, according to the number n of times of chewing, a required air pressure is set according to the current number n of times, based on a hardness/air pressure correspondence recording unit (13g) in which stages that have a significant difference therebetween and are stored in association with the number n of times of chewing are recorded. To realize the set air pressure inside the bag (30), the amount of sucking performed using a vacuum pump 20 is controlled by air pressure control means (13b4).
