Natural language processing, information extraction, information retrieval, and artificial Intelligence are all relatively new areas of study. Research as of late has begun making greater advances In these technological areas, yet much of the potential of these types of systems is still untapped. Though there are a few good examples of these systems put to use in the business world, due to technological limitations and pitfalls, these systems have yet to see widespread use. This thesis explores the technology behind the systems and looks into some of the current ways they are implemented. Finally, a system design referred to as SATSAR Is proposed as a way of implementing the discussed technology as a practical business application.
