An information extraction customizer

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


When an information extraction system is applied to a new task or domain, we must specify the classes of entities and relations to be extracted. This is best done by a subject matter expert, who may have little training in NLP. To meet this need, we have developed a toolset which is able to analyze a corpus and aid the user in building the specifications of the entity and relation types.
