A Novel Use of Statistical Parsing to Extract Information from Text

  title={A Novel Use of Statistical Parsing to Extract Information from Text},
  author={Scott Miller and Heidi Fox and Lance A. Ramshaw and Ralph M. Weischedel},
Since 1995, a few statistical parsing algorithms have demonstrated a breakthrough in parsing accuracy, as measured against the UPenn TREEBANK as a gold standard. In this paper we report adapting a lexicalized, probabilistic context-free parser to information extraction and evaluate this new technique on MUC-7 template elements and template relations.
