Knowledge discovery using KNOW-IT (KNOWledge Base Information Tools)

E. D. Liddy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Entry/PoemConference contribution


KNOW-IT is an integrated suite of robust tools which transform vast, unmanageable bodies of raw textual data into accessible and surveyable intelligence. Unlike most other information extraction systems, KNOW-IT extracts domain independent, time stamped information from various types of texts including news texts, utilizing more general semantic relations to link concepts which occur. KNOW-IT is an end-to-end system which takes raw texts as input and generates a knowledge base that can be utilized for a variety of information access systems, such as a visual knowledge base browser and a question-answering system.
