The objective of this project is to build a tool that automatically extracts the listing of client companies from an incumbator's website. The first step of the project is to develop the LP Extractor Protocol.

LP Extractor Protocol

The LP Extractor Protocol currently envisages marking data locations on webpages, converting webpages into a simplified Domain Specific Language (DSL), and then encoding the DSL into a matrix. The markings of data locations would be encoded into a companion matrix. Both matrices will then be fed into a neural network, which is trained to produce the markings given the DSL. To date, we have conducted a literature review that has found papers describing similar "paired input" networks, and are in the process refining our understanding of the pre-existing code and work related to each step.
