Information Extraction in KiWi
The KiWi meeting is drawing to an end. Marek Schmidt and Pavel Smrz from Brno University of Technology have just given a really exciting presentation of their results in the area of information extraction – and it seems I have developed a case of tendonitis (a.k.a. “mouse hand”) and for the sake of my health will stop blogging for today. Instead of the usual comprehensive coverage, this photo must suffice as a proof of the magic Marek and Pavel’s system is already able to do – please marvel the complex tags that are the product of their information extraction (IE) module. The roles of IE as an enabling technology within KiWi will be in: automatic recognition of (new) terms, entity recognition, text classification and relation extraction.
KiWi team! In particular Klara Weiand who is about to start her presentation on Tags and Queries, please accept my apology! Thank you, good bye, and have a save trip home!
