In this paper we present an information service system that allows users to search for the key players of requested technology areas and for their collaboration networks. This system utilizes information extraction and wrapper technologies for detecting persons, organizations, publications and patents as well as relationships among them. Furthermore, it applies relation extraction to detect statements on the web that indicate innovation trends. Various visualization methods are provided to let users monitor key players, their networks and technology trends in a comfortable way.
