GATE: Recent Developments and Applications
This talk will present GATE, a General Architecture for Text Engineering, which is an open-source NLP framework and a set of associated components for NLP tasks, such as parsing, part-of-speech-tagging, information extraction, etc. The focus will be on recent developments and extensions made to the infrastructure: information extraction, ontology support, corpus search, machine learning for IE, etc. In addition, time permitting, I will present some applications that have been created using GATE: multimedia annotation and indexing and collaborative annotation.
