Information Extraction (IE) is a task of identifying “facts”, such as the attack/arrest events, people's jobs, people's whereabouts, merger and acquisition activity from unstructured texts. In this talk, Dr. Ji defines several new extensions to state-of-the-art IE and systematically present the foundation, methodologies, algorithms, and implementations needed for more accurate, coherent, complete, concise, and most importantly, dynamic and resilient extraction capabilities. He will present an information-aware Machine Translation framework.
