Automatic Reading and Learning from Text



This paper presents our more recent research on the area of text reading and
understanding and knowledge extraction. More specifically, we give an overview
of TextStorm and Clouds: two modules for the construction of concept maps. The
first one deals with the task of extracting relations between concepts from a text
file, while the latter concentrates on completing these relations and extrapolating
rules about the knowledge in hand. This is a hybrid framework that applies two
different areas of Artificial Intelligence: Natural Language Processing (in
TextStorm) and Machine Learning (in Clouds). We show an example and draw


Natural Language Processing, Text Analysis, Case-based Reasoning, Dialogue, Concept Maps
