Abstract:

Information Extraction is an emerging technology with the potential to transform the way textual information is analyzed and used for many information analysis tasks. However, as a relatively new technology, its best uses have not yet necessarily been discovered. This paper provides some background on Information Extraction and discusses several effective uses of the technology from recent Lockheed Martin experience in applications of its AeroTextTM software. The paper provides examples of the ways in which different visual organizations of extracted information can improve analysis. Information Extraction enables better analysis by allowing the analyst access to a far greater depth of information than he could read on his own, and by providing the analyst with the capability to view the data in multiple organizations and formats, thus increasing his ability to see trends and to discover the unexpected.
