Abstract:
The explosive growth in information production poses increasing challenges to consumers, confronted with problems often described as “information overflow”. We present verbatim, a software system that can be used as a personal information butler to help structure and filter information. We address a small part of the information landscape, namely quotes extraction from portuguese news. This problem includes several challenges, specifically in the areas of information extraction and topic distillation. We present a full description of the problems and our adopted approach. verbatim is available online at http://irlab.fe.up.pt/p/verbatim.
