Temporal information extraction is the identification of chunks/tokens corresponding to temporal intervals, and the extraction and determination of the temporal relations between those. The entities extracted may be temporal expressions (timexes), eventualities (events), or auxiliary signals that support the interpretation of an entity or relation. Relations may be temporal links (tlinks), describing the order of events and times, or subordinate links (slinks) describing modality and other subordinative activity, or aspectual links (alinks) around the various influences aspectuality has on event structure.
The markup scheme used for temporal information extraction is well-described in the ISO-TimeML standard, and also on www.timeml.org.
<?xml version="1.0" ?> <TimeML xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="http://timeml.org/timeMLdocs/TimeML_1.2.1.xsd"> <TEXT> PRI20001020.2000.0127 NEWS STORY <TIMEX3 tid="t0" type="TIME" value="2000-10-20T20:02:07.85">10/20/2000 20:02:07.85</TIMEX3> The Navy has changed its account of the attack on the USS Cole in Yemen. Officials <TIMEX3 tid="t1" type="DATE" value="PRESENT_REF" temporalFunction="true" anchorTimeID="t0">now</TIMEX3> say the ship was hit <TIMEX3 tid="t2" type="DURATION" value="PT2H">nearly two hours </TIMEX3>after it had docked. Initially the Navy said the explosion occurred while several boats were helping the ship to tie up. The change raises new questions about how the attackers were able to get past the Navy security. <TIMEX3 tid="t3" type="TIME" value="2000-10-20T20:02:28.05">10/20/2000 20:02:28.05</TIMEX3> <TLINK timeID="t2" relatedToTime="t0" relType="BEFORE"/> </TEXT> </TimeML>
To avoid leaking knowledge about temporal structure, train, dev and test splits must be made at document level for temporal information extraction.

For reliable environment perception, the use of temporal information is essential in some situations.
Time is deeply woven into how people perceive, and communicate about the world.
We present a new temporal annotation standard, THEE-TimeML, and a corpus TheeBank enabling precise temporal information extraction (TIE) for event-based surveillance (EBS) systems in the public health domain.
Inspired by the recent social movement of #MeToo, we are building a chatbot to assist survivors of sexual harassment cases (designed for the city of Maastricht but can easily be extended).
This paper details the development of a linguistic resource designed to improve temporal information extraction systems and to integrate aspectual values.
Temporal reasoning remains as an unsolved task for Natural Language Processing (NLP), particularly demonstrated in the clinical domain.
Neural network models are oftentimes restricted by limited labeled instances and resort to advanced architectures and features for cutting edge performance.
