Previous Project - Overview

The goal of the Avatar project is two fold: (i) to enable the discovery and extraction of structured information buried in volumes of unstructured text (such as emails, web pages, and blogs), and (ii) to exploit this information to drive the next generation of search and business intelligence applications. Ongoing research in Avatar is at the cusp of a number of disciplines ranging from search and information retrieval to machine learning, information extraction, and probabilistic databases.

The Avatar project has been superseeded by SystemT and related project within the IIIS Department. Please follow these links into our new pages:
