Project: Swedish Medical Language Data Lab

  • Predict healthcare events of interest

  • Optimise care

  • Empower data-driven research and innovation within life science

These are the end goals for the Swedish Medical Language Data Lab, aiming to develop medical language models and increase the accessibility to medical data. All in accordance with the ethical, legal, and technical processes that are required to manage sensitive medical data in text form.

The models are developed for application within healthcare, dental care and data-driven research and innovation within life science.

The initial use cases are provided by the stakeholders and data owners in the project. The clear focus on the need, the end-users, and on personal integrity, constitute the guiding criteria for the project.

The team

The project is coordinated by Sahlgrenska Science Park. The stakeholders and data owners are Region Halland, Folktandvården Västra Götalandsregionen and Sahlgrenska University Hospital. Peltarion, RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden) and AI Sweden are the expert resources for the project.




Swedish Medical Language Data Lab builds on other language models and connects with several initiatives within AI, such as AI Innovation of Sweden’s Data Factory and Swedish Language Data Lab.

Project duration: Dec 2019 – Dec 2021

The project is financed by Sweden’s Innovation Agency.
