TimeML: Robust Specification of Event and Temporal Expressions in Text
TLDR
TimeML is described, a rich specification language for event and temporal expressions in natural language text, developed in the context of the AQUAINT program on Question Answering Systems, and demonstrated for a delayed (underspecified) interpretation of partially determined temporal expressions. Expand
SemEval-2007 Task 15: TempEval Temporal Relation Identification
TLDR
The TempEval task proposes a simple way to evaluate automatic extraction of temporal relations by defining three sub tasks that allow pairwise evaluation of temporal Relations. Expand
Natural language question answering: the view from here
TLDR
The best systems are now able to answer more than two thirds of factual questions in this evaluation, with recent successes reported in a series of question-answering evaluations. Expand
CM-Builder: A Natural Language-Based CASE Tool for Object-Oriented Analysis
TLDR
An NL-Based CASE tool called Class Model Builder (CM-Builder) is described which aims at supporting this aspect of the Analysis stage of software development in an Object-Oriented framework and has been quantitatively evaluated in blind trials against a collection of unseen software requirements texts. Expand
The Specification Language TimeML
TLDR
This paper provides a description of TimeML, a rich specification language for event and temporal expressions in natural language text, developed in the context of the AQUAINT program on Question Answering Systems, and demonstrates the expressiveness of timeML for a broad range of syntactic and semantic contexts. Expand
The TempEval challenge: identifying temporal relations in text
TLDR
The TempEval task and the systems that participated in the evaluation are described and how further task decomposition can bring even more structure to the evaluation of temporal relations is described. Expand
University of Sheffield: Description of the LaSIE-II System as Used for MUC-7
The University of She eld NLP group took part in MUC-7 using the LaSIE-II system, an evolution of the LaSIE (Large Scale Information Extraction) system rst created for participation in MUC-6 [9] andExpand
Two applications of information extraction to biological science journal articles: enzyme interactions and protein structures.
TLDR
This paper describes how an information extraction system designed to participate in the MUC exercises has been modified for two bioinformatics applications: EMPathIE, concerns with enzyme and metabolic pathways; and PASTA, concerned with protein structure. Expand
Information Extraction: Beyond Document Retrieval
In this paper we give a synoptic view of the growth of the text processing technology of information extraction (IE) whose function is to extract information about a pre‐specified set of entities,Expand
Building a semantically annotated corpus of clinical texts
TLDR
The construction of a semantically annotated corpus of clinical texts for use in the development and evaluation of systems for automatically extracting clinically significant information from the textual component of patient records is described. Expand
