SHORT DESCRIPTION

Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA) is a component framework to analyze unstructured content such as text, audio and video. This is originally developed by IBM. UIMA enables applications to be decomposed into components, for example “language identification” => “language specific segmentation” => “sentence boundary detection” => Each component implements interfaces defined by the framework and provides self describing metadata via XML descriptor files. Also provides capabilities to wrap components as network services, and can scale to very large volumes by replicating processing pipelines over a cluster of networked nodes.

UimaFramework.png
The Frameworks run the components, and are available for both Java and C++. The Java Framework supports running both Java and non-Java components (using the C++ framework). The C++ framework, besides supporting annotators written in C/C++, also supports Perl, Python, and TCL annotators. The UIMA-AS and UIMA-DUCC are both Scaleout Frameworks and are addons to the base Java framework. The UIMA-AS supports very flexible scaleout capability based on JMS (Java Messaging Services) and ActiveMQ. The UIMA-DUCC extends UIMA-AS by providing cluster management services to automate the scale-out of UIMA pipelines over computing clusters.

The frameworks support configuring and running pipelines of Annotator components. These components do the actual work of analyzing the unstructured information. Users can write their own annotators, or configure and use pre-existing annotators. Some annotators are available as part of this project; others are contained in various repositories on the internet.

Additional infrastructure support components include a simple server that can receive REST requests and return annotation results, for use by other web services.
