Abstract:

This paper describes the TipsterMUC-5 information extraction system evaluation. Three information extraction system evaluations using Tipster data were conducted in the context of Phase 1 of the Tipster Text program. Interim evaluations were conducted in September 1992, and February 1993 the final evaluation was conducted in July 1993. The final evaluation included not only the Tipster-supported information extraction contractors but thirteen other participants as well. This evaluation was the topic of the Fifth Message Understanding Conference MUC-5 in August 1993. With particular respect to the research and development tasks of the Tipster contractors, the goal of these evaluations has been to assess success in terms of the development of systems to work in both English and Japanese BBN, GECMU, and NMSUBrandeis andor in both the joint ventures and microelectronics domains BBN, GECMU, NMSU brandeis, and UMassHughes.
