TRIPS and TRIOS System for TempEval-2: Extracting Temporal Information from Text

Naushad UzZaman, James F. Allen

Extracting temporal information from raw text is fundamental for deep language understanding, and key to many applications like question answering, information extraction, and document summarization. In this paper, we describe two systems we submitted to the TempEval 2 challenge, for extracting temporal information from raw text. The systems use a combination of deep semantic parsing, Markov Logic Networks and Conditional Random Field classifiers. Our two submitted systems, TRIPS and TRIOS,

TRIOS also outperformed the other teams that attempted all the tasks. Our system is notable in that for tasks C -F, they operated on raw text while all other systems used tagged events and temporal expressions in the corpus as input.
