TRW: description of the DEFT system as used for MUC-5


For the past three years, TRW has been developing a text analysis tool called DEFT-Data Extraction from Text . Based on the Fast Data Finder (I'D I .), l)EF'l' processes larg e volumes of text at very high speeds, identifying patterns which serve as indicator s for the presence of relevant objects, relationships, or concepts in the data . These indicators are processed by a series of system-supplied utilities or custom-writte n functions which refine the data and re-formulate it into frames which can b e presented to a user for review, editing, and submission to a downstream application or database .
