A Review on Relations Extraction in Police Reports
Relation Extraction (RE) is part of Information Extraction (IE) and aims to obtain instances of semantic relations in textual documents. The countless possibilities of relations, the myriad of subjects, the difficulty in identifying emotions and the amount of unstructured and heterogeneous data, have challenged the researchers to define innovative and even more accurate methodologies. This paper presents the evaluation results obtained with a set of RE systems on identifying semantic relations in criminal police reports. We have evaluated different applications with documents in English and Portuguese. The results obtained give us useful insights to continue the research work, and to design the conceptual relation extraction system.
