Title

Natural-Language Event Extraction Tool & Corpus

Abstract

We present a tool for extracting events from natural language news articles, and a corpus of high-quality human-extracted articles. This tool also allows comparison of human-annotated stories and will eventually enable computational extraction of timelines and comparison of the timelines proposed for similar stories as told by different sources.
