DANTE

The DANTE system has been developed at the Center for Language Technology at the Macquarie University. It name stands for Detection and Normalisation of Temporal Expressions, and the system does what its name says. It generates TIMEX2 annotations as specified in the TIMEX2 2005 v.1.1 guidelines. This project was funded in its initial stage by the DSTO.

In 2007 DANTE participated in the ACE TERN task. Since then it has been under development.

The demo of the system is available online.
The system was presented with live demo at:

  • the COLING/ACL Interactive Presentation Sessions, Sydney, Australia, 17th-21th July, 2006,
  • the International Multiconference on Computer Science and Information Technology (IMCSIT), Wisla, Poland, 15th-17th October, 2007.

The system is now made publicly available on demand; if you are interested in using DANTE please send a request email to ua.ude.qm|ruzaM.lewaP#ua.ude.qm|ruzaM.lewaP.
