Report No. ARL-TR-7000
Authors: Michelle Vanni; Andrew Neiderer
Date/Pages: July 2014; 28 pages
Abstract: The integrated development environment of the General Architecture for Text Engineering (GATE), or GATE Developer, is used to annotate entities in a text document consisting of messages in and around the Baghdad area (SYNCOIN data). Highlighting entities, such as person(s), location(s), and organization(s), may result in a more structured format for faster comprehension of the data. The application for entity determination is called a nearly-new information extraction, or ANNIE: a system of seven processing resources (PRs) in GATE. ANNIE is executed from the graphical user interface (GUI). Other PRs, such as those for machine learning, and the capability for user-defined applications are managed as a collection of reusable objects for language engineering (CREOLE); an icon for the CREOLE plug-in manager exists at the GUI as well.
