Research project


Document Lifecycle Management with Semantic Annotations

The project developed a system for the automatic assignment of meta data to contracts. The system was designed to be incorporated into the framework of an existing contract management system. The system supports workflow-based document creation, automatic information extraction using natural language processing and machine learning techniques as well as the semantic annotation of contracts. The semantic annotation is achieved by the context-specific generation of tags using ontologies as background knowledge.
