GATE is an open source infrastructure for developing and deploying software components that process human language. GATE excels at text analysis of all shapes and sizes. From large corporations to small startups, from multi-million research consortia to undergraduate projects. More than €5 million has been invested in GATE development and our objective is to make sure that this continues to be money well spent for all GATE's users.

GATE is distributed with an example Information Extraction system, known as ANNIE, which has formed the basis of many commercial and research systems. While ANNIE is capable of recognising a number of different entity types this simple demo focuses on the annotion of people, organizations, and locations.

Please note that ANNIE was initially developed to process English language documents, mostly American news articles, and as such would require tuning to other languages, locales, or domains.
