The paper “Time-Based exploration of news archive” co-written by Alonso, O., K. Berberich, S. Bedathur and G. Weikum has been presented at HCIR ‘10 in New Brunswick, NJ, USA on August 22nd, 2010
In this paper, we present NEAT, a prototype system that provides an exploration interface to news archive search. Our prototype visualizes search results making use of two kinds of temporal information, namely, news articles’ publication dates but also their contained temporal expressions. The displayed timelines are annotated with major events, harvested using crowdsourcing, to make it easier for users to put the shown search results into context. The prototype has been fully implemented and deployed on the New York Times Annotated Corpus.
