Default Entity Extraction properties RRS feed

  • Question

  • According to this web page http://blogs.technet.com/b/vedant/archive/2009/03/10/fast-esp-linguistics-processing-features.aspx the following property extractors are available:

    Language-independent Entity Extractors for price, measure, uppercase, acronym, email, filename, ISBN, university, url, newspaper (US), phone, zip code, ticker, date/time (ISO) and quotation

    But in FS4SP I see only Company, Location and a couple others.

    Have these been deprecated in FS4SP?

  • I don't know if deprecated is the right term, but you are right that they are not included in FS4SP. The exact reason for not including the others would be purely guess work.

    FS4SP includes extractors for companies, locations and people names. That's all.

  • FAST ESP (now FAST Search for Internet Sites) has much more customization options and a more rich set of out-of-box extractors. In FAST Search for SharePoint you have the more generic extractors that does not require customization. There is an option in FAST Search for SharePoint to create custom extractors, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff795797.aspx

    Creating your own entity extractors is a lot of work. Finding all the gems in the logic which makes them work is what is valuable. So if you can influence some people to include more of the extractors from FSIS in a future service pack or release for FS4SP, we would all be thankful :)
