Knowledge extraction system

The Knowledge Extraction System (KES) supports the semi-automatic extraction of structured data from documents, their saving in a database as well as the eventual querying of this database in support of knowledge management activities. The KES consists of an information extraction module that takes press releases as input, analyses them using natural language processing techniques to identify entities such as people, products, companies etc. and fills in specific business event templates (such as a sale-purchase event) with the extracted data. Templates can be modified by the user. When accepted, information in templates is stored in a database that can subsequently be queried using specific questions.
