Testimonials  

  • Shimei Pan, May 2016: "The Information Extraction with SystemT class, which was offered for the first time at UMBC, has been a wonderful experience for me and my students.  I really enjoyed teaching this course. Students were also very enthusiastic. Based on the feedback from my students, they have learned a lot. Some of my students even want me to offer this class every semester." 
  • Alon Halevy, November 2015: "The tutorial of System T was an important hands-on component of a Ph.D course on Structured Data on the Web at the University of Aalborg in Denmark taught by Alon Halevy. The tutorial did a great job giving the students the feeling for the challenges involved in extracting structured data from text."
