Abstract:

The GE-CMU team is developing the TIPSTERSHOGUN system under the government-sponsored TIPSTER program, which aims to advance coverage, accuracy, and portability in text interpretation. The system will soon be tested on Japanese and English news stories in two new domains. MUC-4 served as the first substantial test of the combined system. Because the SHOGUN system takes advantage of most of the components of the GE NLTOOLSET except for the parser, this paper supplements the NLTOOLSET system description by explaining the relationship between the two systems and comparing their performance on the examples from MUC-4.
