What's new about the Semantic Web?

Karen Sparck Jones
2004 SIGIR Forum  
This is not a new idea: Leibniz and Wilkins were promulgating it in the 17th Century. But they could not carry it through.  ...  To illustrate this, we can take the Columbia University Newsblaster system that offers automatic summaries of news stories.  ...

Multifaceted toponym recognition for streaming news

Michael D. Lieberman, Hanan Samet
2011 Proceedings of the 34th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in Information - SIGIR '11  
Toponym recognition in news is often accomplished with algorithms designed and tested around small corpora of news articles, but these static collections do not reflect the streaming nature of online news  ...  In particular, geography plays a key role in the news, and enabling geographic retrieval of news articles involves recognizing the textual references to geographic locations (called toponyms) present in  ...  As more news sources move online, algorithms like ours which are tailored for streaming news will be vital to handle the resulting data deluge.
