For this project, TSO is using its Data Enrichment Service (DES) technology. Mr. Appleby explains that “the DES provides a platform to execute GATE pipelines. A GATE pipeline is a series of processing steps, with each step doing something to the text, with the end result being additional value extracted from the text.”
According to the post, “[i]n addition to returning the changes contained within each item of legislation, the [described] …process also returns the original legislation XML with additional annotations. These additional annotations should then permit enhanced outputs, such as additional links on the legislation.gov.uk website.”
Mr. Appleby’s post provides details about the process, screenshots, and some HTML output.
