TERN is a rule-based and hybrid (rule-union-CRF) temporal expressions identification and normalisation software; designed for clinical data. The identification (TEid) and normalization component (Clinical NorMA) were used and evaluated as part of the Temporal Relation challenge (i2b2 2012). This software provides various features for easy integration into existing pipelines (e.g., server mode); see browse code / README file.
Nota bene: binaries are compiled with OpenJDK.
