Abstract

The goal of this project was to design and implement a system that analyzes text corpora. This system uses natural language processing techniques to extract knowledge from written text and represents this knowledge as a network. The system displays this network to the user and allows the user to interactively explore the network. The accuracy of the knowledge extraction process and the overall performance of the developed system were assessed. Possible applications are in social networks and text simplification.
