Automatic Extraction of Event Information from Newspaper Articles and Web Pages
In this paper, we propose a method for extracting travel-related event information, such as an event name or a schedule from automatically identified newspaper articles, in which particular events are mentioned. We analyze news corpora using our method, extracting venue names from them. We then find web pages that refer to event schedules for these venues. To confirm the effectiveness of our method, we conducted several experiments. From the experimental results, we obtained a precision of 91.5% and a recall of 75.9% for the automatic extraction of event information from news articles, and a precision of 90.8% and a recall of 52.8% for the automatic identification of event-related web pages.
