Pattern based information extraction from Estonian court documents

Katrin Valdson
This thesis describes how pattern based information extraction methods were applied to Estonian court documents, which is an Estonian language resource that until now has remained mostly unused. The goal of the thesis was to create a database, which would enable developing an application that would allow effective searching of relevant court documents and analyzing the results. The result of this work is a database containing facts of interest that were extracted from the court documents. The database enables analyzing decisions written down in the court documents, for example based on counties and the different Estonian courts.
