DISEASES: Text mining and data integration of disease–gene associations
We present a system for extracting disease–gene associations from biomedical abstracts. The system consists of a highly efficient dictionary-based tagger for named entity recognition of human genes and diseases, which we combine with a scoring scheme that takes into account co-occurrences both within and between sentences. We show that this approach is able to extract half of all manually curated associations with a false positive rate of only 0.16%. Nonetheless, text mining should not stand alone, but be combined with other types of evidence. For this reason, we have developed the DISEASES resource.

Apple users spend twice as much on apps as Android users: CHARTS - Business Insider
Despite Android's growing market share, Apple users continue to spend twice as much money on apps as Android users (APPL) July 6, 2018 at 02:15PM https://ift.tt/2zcWltD

It often comes as a surprise that, given Android's lion share of the market, app developers generally choose iOS as the platform to build for. 

Android provides clearer guidelines, more documentation, and allows more flexibility in terms of design. On top of that, Android devices accounted for more than 85% of 2017 global smartphone sales while iOS was in a distant second at 14%.

But in addition to being less fragmented with its single platform, Apple makes developers a lot of money because its users are more likely to make in-app and App Store purchases compared to Android users, according to data from App Annie. As this chart from Statista shows, even as Android claims more and more of the global app downloads, its share of the dollars spent remains almost the same.

For the last five years, Android users have downloaded more apps than Apple users, but spent nearly half as many dollars.

US jobs report shows higher unemployment rate, more jobs than forecast - Business Insider
US unemployment rate jumps even though employers add more jobs than expected July 6, 2018 at 02:15PM https://ift.tt/2lZEOM5

The June jobs report showed employers added 213,000 nonfarm payrolls, more than economists had expected.

The unemployment rate jumped from 3.8%, the lowest since 2000, to 4% because more people joined the labor force to look for work.

Wage growth slowed.

The US economy added 213,000 jobs in June, more than expected, while the unemployment rate jumped to 4%, according to the jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on Friday.

June was a record 93rd straight month in which private-sector employers hired more people than they fired or laid off. Among the strongest industries for job growth during the month was manufacturing, which extended a surge in hiring by adding 36,000 jobs even with tariffs in place. Healthcare was another strong sector.

At the same time, retail lost 22,000 jobs, partly because of the nationwide closing of Toys R Us stores, according to Gus Faucher, PNC's chief economist.

Economists had forecast that employers added 195,000 payrolls last month, according to the median estimate compiled by Bloomberg. They had expected that the unemployment rate held steady at 3.8%, its lowest level since 2000.

The unemployment rate increased because more people were looking for jobs; the labor-force participation rate rose to 62.9% from 62.7%. Women stormed back into the workforce, with the participation rate among prime-age women (25 to 54) rising by 0.5%, its most since 1994.

Participation remains historically low, and many economists have pointed to the aging of baby boomers as a key reason.

Wage growth slowed in June. Average hourly earnings increased by 0.2% month-on-month and 2.7% year-on-year, weaker than economists had forecast. An acceleration of this rate would have shown that employers were indeed paying up for the skilled workers they say are in decreasing supply. According to a report Thursday from the human-resources-software provider ADP, business' "number one problem is finding qualified workers."

Faster wage growth would have also indicated that inflation was building in the economy, which hasn't strongly been the case even though unemployment is low.

Unsupervised biomedical named entity recognition: Experiments with clinical and biological texts
We describe a stepwise solution to tackle the challenges of entity boundary detection and entity type classification without relying on any handcrafted rules, heuristics, or annotated data. A noun phrase chunker followed by a filter based on inverse document frequency extracts candidate entities from free text. Classification of candidate entities into categories of interest is carried out by leveraging principles from distributional semantics.
