Customizable, Open-Domain Information Extraction

Language Computer's CiceroCustom provides customizable, open-domain information extraction for entities, attributes, relationships, and events in English, Chinese, and Arabic.


In today's world, the need for sophisticated, reliable, and accurate information extraction is greater than ever. Unlike information retrieval systems, information extraction systems - like LCC's CiceroCustom - deliver value from texts by automatically identifying specific information about the entities, events, and relationships central to a particular domain of interest.

Unlike traditional approaches to information extraction (IE), LCC's CiceroCustom open-domain extraction system extracts information with unsurpassed precision and recall without the need for hand-crafted rules or pre-specified extraction templates.

Don't settle for someone else's idea of what's relevant. With CiceroCustom, you define the set of roles that are extracted from unstructured texts.

How it Works

CiceroCustom leverages a novel extraction architecture that combines accurate named entity recognition (from LCC's CiceroLite) and event detection techniques with a machine learning framework that allows non-expert users to interactively define extractors "on the fly".

By relying on active learning instead of hand-built extraction templates, CiceroCustom allows users to seamlessly gather a collection of relevant documents, identify events of interest, and assign roles to specific entities all within a matter of minutes and without the need for extensive domain customization.
