Semantic Navigation of News

Walter Kasper, Jörg Steffen, Yajing Zhang

Abstract

We present a system for browsing a news repository that is based on semantic similarity of documents. News documents get automatically annotated semantically using information extraction. Annotations are displayed to a user who can easily retrieve crosslingual semantically related documents by selecting interesting content items.
