ABSTRACT
Manually querying search engines in order to accumulate a large
body of factual information is a tedious, error-prone process of
piecemeal search. Search engines retrieve and rank potentially rel-
evant documents for human perusal, but do not extract facts, assess
confidence, or fuse information from multiple documents. This pa-
per introduces KNOWITALL, a system that aims to automate the
tedious process of extracting large collections of facts from the web
