A Multi-Level Boundary Classification Approach to Information Extraction

Abstract
Information Extraction (IE) is the process of identifying a set of pre-defined relevant items in text documents. We investigate the application of Machine Learning classification techniques to the problem of Information Extraction. In particular we use Support Vector Machines and several different feature-sets to build a set of classifiers for Information Extraction (IE). We show that this approach is competitive with current state-of-the-art Information Extraction algorithms based on specialized learning algorithms.
