Yet another idea to achieve a good interpretation of “Paris hilton stayed in the paris hilton”
This presentation is about Information Extraction / Natural Language Processing. I will sketch a bit of state of the art, including what Mena and I have been up to. Then I will present a reformulation of the problem that I proposed in a position paper back in 2011 (URSW workshop). This reformulation of the problem hints at a different approach towards information extraction, which I have coined “Sherlock Holmes-style”. In the position paper I concluded with describing an underlying probability theory problem. Only now, after Brend has developed an implementation of our Probabilistic Datalog, do I have a real and handy means of actually performing and experimenting with Sherlock Holmes-style information extraction. I will demo a proof of concept.
