This paper will propose a personal news secretariat that helps on-line readers absorb news information from multiple sources. Such a news secretariat eliminates the redundant information in the news, and reorganizes the news for readers. This multiple document summarization employs named entities and other signatures to cluster news stream; employs(More)
To measure the similarity of words, sentences, and documents is one of the major issues in multilingual multi-document sum-marization. This paper presents five strategies to compute the multilingual sentence similarity. The experimental results show that sentence alignment without considering the word position or order in a sentence obtains the best(More)
Unification of the terminology usages which captures more term semantics is useful for event clustering. This paper proposes a metric of normalized chain edit distance to mine controlled vocabulary from cross-document co-reference chains incrementally. A novel threshold model that incorporates time decay function and spanning window utilizes the controlled(More)
Event clustering on streaming news aims to group documents by events automatically. This paper employs co-reference chains to extract the most representative sentences, and then uses them to select the most informative features for clustering. Due to the long span of events, a fixed threshold approach prohibits the latter documents to be clustered and thus(More)
Summary generation for multiple documents poses a number of issues including sentence selection, sentence ordering, and sentence reduction over single-document summarization. In addition, the temporal resolution among extracted sentences is also important. This article considers informative words and event words to deal with multidocument summarization.(More)
To reduce both the text size and the information loss during summarization, a multi-document summarization system using informative words is proposed. The procedure to extract informative words from multiple documents and generate summaries is described in this paper. At first, a small-scale experiment with 12 events and 60 questions was made. The results(More)
Some researches concerning the correspondence between the temporal features in English and other European languages have been done by Bree (1994). The subject of this paper is to collect and induce the temporal features of Chinese. The functionality of the Chinese temporal Coverbs, postpositions and Coverb-postposition pairs will be introduced Meanwhile,(More)
