We present our work on information extraction from multiple, multi-lingual sources for the Multimedia Indexing and Searching Environment (MUMIS), a project aiming at developing technology to produce formal annotations about essential events in multimedia programme material. The novelty of our approach consists on the use of a merging or cross-document coreference algorithm that aims at combining the output delivered by the information extraction systems. (pdf, 56 KB )
