In general, the goal is to extract all relevant information from a corpus of documents, store it into an ontology, and answer future queries based only on the created knowledge base. Thus, the original documents become dispensable. On the one hand, an ontology is a convenient and non-redundant structured source of information, based on which specific queries can be answered efficiently.
