Information Extraction Techniques for Multilevel Text Matching

  • Vittorio Di Tomaso
  • Gianfrancesco D’Angelo
Part of the International Series on Microprocessor-Based and Intelligent Systems Engineering book series (ISCA, volume 21)


In this Chapter we describe Tradluta, a system for retrieving text fragments from documents, based on the information extraction system IUTA. Tradluta exploits “linguistic matching”, that is a technology which, given a text or a collection of texts, allows the retrieval of text units on the basis of different kinds of linguistic analysis.
