Bowers, Christopher; Beale, R.; Hendley, R.J. (2012)
Publisher: British Computer Society
Languages: English
Types: Article
Subjects: ZA4050, QA75, QA76
A novel approach to news aggregation is proposed. Rather than ranking or summarisation of cluster topics, we propose that articles are grouped by topic similarity and then clustered within topic groups in order to identify archetypal articles that represent the various perspectives upon a topic. An example application is examined and a preliminary user study is discussed. Future applications and evaluation of validity are outlined.
  • The results below are discovered through our pilot algorithms. Let us know how we are doing!
