Visit to California

Related to another project that we have at TKK, I had a chance to visit California for three weeks in November and December 2006. One of the relevant events was the visit to Google where I was hosted by Peter Norvig. Earlier Norvig gave a presentation
at University of California Berkeley. In the presentation, he discussed, for example, the advances of statistical machine translation. Google has recently launched MT tools for English to Chinese and English to Arabic translation (see Google language tools).

Project Objectives

General objectives

As the number of medical web sites in various languages increases, it is more than necessary to establish specific criteria and control measures that give the consumers some guarantee that the health web sites they are visiting, meet a minimum level of quality standards and that the professionals offering the information on the web site are responsible for its contents and activities.

Project Description

The number of health information web sites and online services is increasing day by day. It is known that the quality of these web sites is very variable and difficult to assess; we can find web sites published by government institutions, consumer and scientific organisations, patients associations, personal sites, health provider institutions, commercial sites, etc. On the other hand, patients continue to find new ways of reaching health information and their physicians and more than four out of ten health information seekers say the material they find affect their decisions about their health itself. Thus the choice of appropriate evaluation criteria as well as the development of tools to support the labelling process (retrieval of unlabelled web sites, monitoring of labelled web sites) are both crucial and challenging.
