Information Extraction (IE) is an important research field
within the Artificial Intelligence community, for it tries to extract rele-
vant information out of vast amounts of data. In this paper, we propose
an extraction method that utilises the content and pre-defined seman-
tics of ontologies formulated in the Web Ontology Language (OWL) to
perform the extraction task. We also propose our method to detect out-
of-date constructs in the ontology to suggest changes to the user. After
stating the results of our evaluation, we conclude that the use of on-
tologies in conjunction with IESs can indeed yield feasible results and
contribute to the better scalability and portability of the system.
