Information extraction is an appropriate methodology to analyze purposeful queries which require information or actions. We apply information extraction to find meaningful arguments and a predicate from queries on weather, traffic, and home automation for an intelligent robot service, and to generate a robot-understandable query structure. To deal with various ambiguities and flexible utterances of arguments, we separate extraction rules into non-context-based A-extraction rules and context-based revision rules. These extraction rules select and modify arguments by matching the input query with lexico-semantic patterns. We additionally add "linguistic information detection" to find conditional clause and modalities, "predicate extraction" to acquire query meaning type, and "query structure generation" to construct query-related information such as a query type, concepts, and auxiliary concepts in a query. Currently, we involve the project of Ubiquitous Robotics Companion technology development as a national project, and choose the above three domains as a test environment to experiment the adaptability of information extraction.
