Insights on the Horizon of News Search

Abstract

In recent years, news reporting and consumption has made the profound shift from paper-based media to free online publications, while the simultaneous emergence of Web 2.0 has fundamentally changed the way we react to news. In this paper, we argue that the rapid increase in volume of user-generated content now available presents new and exciting opportunities for the furtherment of news search. In particular, we discuss new applications for usergenerated content when determining the stories of the moment, as well as adding value to the results returned.
