Abstract:

This is a very young project, operational for only a few months. The focus of the effort is dataextraction, the identification of instances of data-classes in commercial text --e.g., newspapers, technical reports, business correspondence, intelligence briefs. Instances of data-classes in text are phrases which identify factual content, such as names of people or organizations, products, financial amounts, quantities, and so forth. A number of applications would be very well served simply with automated and accurate identification of the data-classes that occurred in their texts of interest, with interpretations left to experts. Such applications include extraction of bibliographic information, document indexing, competitive analyses based on open sources. technical information retrieval, foreign technology and political assessments, tracking financial and other resource transactions in the written media, and various types of link analyses based on text correlations.
