Open IE is an open information extractor that find relationships in sentence. Here is an example sentence and extractions:

U.S. president Barack Obama gave his inaugural address on January 20, 2013.

(Barack Obama; is president of; U.S.)
(Barack Obama; gave; [his inaugural address, on January 20, 2013])

In this example, the second part of the tuple is the relationship between the first argument and the second arguments.
