Augmentext: A Text Augmentation Library

#Data Science and Business Analytics (BA)

The goal of the project was to create a text augmentation package with a focus on medical free text.

Augmentext is a comprehensive, general text augmentation library for Phython built through data augmentation. Data augmentation is defined as the process of creating more data from existing data.

Although it is most commonly used in image processing, where image can be rotated, transformed, and flipped to create new data, data augmentation can also be used to augment text data.
