Professor Dr. Monica Palmirani of Università di Bologna Dipartimento di Scienze Giuridiche «Antonio Cicu» and CIRSFID, and Professor Dr. Leonardo Lesmo, Dr. Alessandro Mazzei, and Dr. Daniele P. Radicioni, all of Universita’ di Torino Dipartimento di Informatica, have published TULSI: an NLP system for extracting legal modificatory provisions, forthcoming in Artificial Intelligence and Law.
Here is the abstract:
In this work we present the TULSI system (so named after Turin University Legal Semantic Interpreter), a system to produce automatic annotations of normative documents through the extraction of modificatory provisions. TULSI relies on a deep syntactic analysis and a shallow semantic interpreter that are illustrated in detail. We report the results of an experimental evaluation of the system and discuss them, also suggesting future directions for further improvement.
