    On the Marriage of Information Retrieval and Information Extraction

    19th Annual BCS-IRSG Colloquium on IR

    Aberdeen, UK. 8th - 9th April 1997


    A.M. Robertson & R. Gaizauskas


    The techniques of information retrieval and information extraction are complementary, but to date there has been little work aimed at integrating the two.

    We describe how each of these techniques contributes to the process of transferring information from generator to user, summarise the issues which must be addressed if they are to work together, and report the results of some preliminary experiments on coupling them.
