Paper Abstract

In business and technical text there is a considerably amount of data, factual knowledge that provides specific details about a topic. Because of the exponentially increasing availability of text, there is therefore vast amounts of data to be gleaned. The problem is that the gleaning tools are insufficient, missing a lot of the relevant data and burying the user in irrelevant returns. The paper describes the EXTRACT tool which is specifically designed to dig data out of all its text crevices, doing so with great accuracy and ease-of-user.
