Abstract

Free text is a main repository of human knowledge, therefore methods and techniques to access this unstructured source of knowledge are of paramount importance. In this chapter we describe natural language processing technology for the development of question answering and text summarization systems. We focus on applications aiming at mining textual resources to extract knowledge for the automatic creation of definitions and person profiles.
