Introduction

Message Understanding Conference (MUC) 6 Additional News Text was developed by the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC).

In the 1990s, the MUC evaluations funded the development of metrics and statistical algorithms to support government evaluations of emerging information extraction technologies.

Data
