Text Data Mining
Information Extraction is a text data mining subfield. It belongs in the Text Analytics family of tools where unstructured text is automatically analyzed for the recognition and extraction of named entities, facts, events, and structured relationships between any of the above. Popular commercial Information Extraction software includes SRA's NetOwl, Inxight's (now SAP) ThingFinder, and ClearForest's (now Reuters) Calais. The current benchmarks set the standard pretty high. Information Extraction software is expected to perform certain (traditionally "hard") NLP tasks such as anaphoric coreference resolution and word sense disambiguation.
