Extraction and Resolution Capabilities for Entities, Events and Facts

Extraction and Resolution Capabilities for Entities, Events and Facts

This video was recorded at 2nd European Semantic Technology Conference (ESTC), Vienna 2008. We discuss some current thinking around the use of machine extraction and resolution to deliver what we call 'Intelligent Information'. Such information is tailored to a user's underlying task, and must be derived automatically from underlying content sources. We describe a platform called ClearForest Tags, which performs state of the art entity, fact and event extraction, and illustrate its utility with some commercial use cases. We also describe an entity resolution toolkit called Dexter/Concord, which is capable of both mapping named entities to authority files and merging or updating database records. We supply some technical details of these fully implemented and deployed systems, as well as describing plans to more tightly integrate them.
