MfeCNN: Mixture Feature Embedding Convolutional Neural Network for Data Mapping

Vol. 17, No.3

Data mapping plays an important role in data integration and exchanges among institutions and organizations with different data standards. However, traditional rule-based approaches and machine learning methods fail to achieve satisfactory results for the data mapping problem. In this paper, we propose a novel and sophisticated deep learning framework for data mapping called mixture feature embedding convolutional neural network (MfeCNN). The MfeCNN model converts the data mapping task to a multiple classification problem. In the model, we incorporated multimodal learning and multiview embedding into a CNN for mixture feature tensor generation and classification prediction. Multimodal features were extracted from various linguistic spaces with a medical natural language processing package. Then, powerful feature embeddings were learned by using the CNN. As many as 10 classes could be simultaneously classified by a softmax prediction layer based on multiview embedding. MfeCNN achieved the best results on unbalanced data (average F1 score, 82.4%) among the traditional state-of-the-art machine learning models and CNN without mixture feature embedding. Our model also outperformed a very deep CNN with 29 layers, which took free texts as inputs. The combination of mixture feature embedding and a deep neural network can achieve high accuracy for data mapping and multiple classification.
