Abstract

In recent years, the information overload caused by the new media has made the shortcomings of traditional Information Retrieval increasingly evident. Practical needs of industry, government organizations and individual users alike push the research community towards systems that can exactly pinpoint those parts of documents that contain the information requested, rather than return a set of relevant documents. Answer Extraction (AE) systems aim to satisfy this need. In this article we discuss the problems faced in AE and present one such system.
It has been often observed that traditional Information Retrieval should rather be called “Document Retrieval”.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
