Example of the system's output. The publication details of an article are retrieved directly from PubMed. For other information elements, the system outputs five best candidate sentences in decreasing order of confidence. The text fragments identified by the system as containing the target information are highlighted in the retrieved sentences whose confidence score is above a certain threshold. For eligibility criteria, the whole sentence is considered the target, so no fragments are highlighted in those sentences. Sentences in black were confirmed as correct answers by the field expert.
