Newspaper Ad Extraction And Classification


During these changing times, it is inevitable to have knowledge of the information that is being published by the original sources. Today, technology offers many digital opportunities to bring in the required data to us. Along with the benefits, we also have the problems from fake publishers targeting user’s payment modes, collecting users personal information etc.  In this scenario, one reliable source is an authentic newspaper ad information. 

Every day we see different types of advertisements being posted in various categories like Real estate, tender notice, education and job vacancies etc. Classifying and extracting the details like date, organization, location, address and collecting stuff like application end date, vacant post, salary details manually from these advertisements is a difficult task and errors are inevitable.
