Information extraction is the task of extracting specific events or facts from natural language texts. It helps us automatically classify, extract and reconstruct massive content. Intelligent text extraction is an important basis for artificial intelligence applications such as information retrieval, question answering, and dialogue. It can overcome difficulties of understanding the unstructured and ambiguous text, and mine and capture the valuable information from it. The information can then be used for business consultation, decision support, precision marketing, etc., therefore practically significant to the industry.
