In this paper, we describe WikiPop service, a system designed to detect significant increase of popularity of topics related to users' interests. We exploit Wikipedia page view statistics to identify concepts with significant increase of the interest from the public. Daily, there are thousands of articles with increased popularity; thus, a personalization is in order to provide the user only with results related to his/her interest. The WikiPop system allows a user to define a context by… Expand
Semantic Annotation for Microblog Topics Using Wikipedia Temporal Information
TLDR
This work proposes a novel model that complements traditional text-based approaches by rewarding entities that exhibit a high temporal correlation with topics during their burst time period by exploiting temporal information from the Wikipedia edit history and page view logs. Expand
Extracting Event-Related Information from Article Updates in Wikipedia
TLDR
An in-depth analysis of event-related updates in Wikipedia by examining different indicators for events including language, meta annotations, and update bursts and finding promising results towards generating entity-specific news tickers and timelines. Expand
Temporal summarization of event-related updates in wikipedia
TLDR
Wikipedia Event Reporter is presented, a web-based system that supports the entity-centric, temporal analytics of event-related information in Wikipedia by analyzing the whole history of article updates. Expand
WikipEvent: Leveraging Wikipedia Edit History for Event Detection
TLDR
This work introduces a new method to extract complex event structures from Wikipedia using WikipEvent using Co-References method, and proposes a new model to represent events by engaging multiple entities, generalizable to an arbitrary language. Expand
Wikipedia as a time machine
TLDR
The main content and meta-data temporal signals available along with illustrative analysis are discussed and the source and nature of each signal are discussed, and any issues that may complicate extraction and use are discussed. Expand
Characterising Concepts of Interest Leveraging Linked Data and the Social Web
TLDR
A novel algorithm for computing specificity leveraging the semantics of Linked Data is described and evaluated and the impact of the model on user profiles of interests is evaluated. Expand
CrowdTiles: presenting crowd-based information for event-driven information needs
TLDR
A novel approach to presenting a summary of new information and users related to recent or ongoing events associated with the user's search topic, therefore aiding most recent information discovery is proposed. Expand
A Probabilistic Model for Time-Aware Entity Recommendation
TLDR
This paper proposes the first probabilistic model that takes time-awareness into consideration for entity recommendation by leveraging heterogeneous knowledge of entities extracted from different data sources publicly available on the Web. Expand
Indexing and analyzing wikipedia's current events portal, the daily news summaries by the crowd
TLDR
The results show that WCEP has reached a stable state in terms of the volume of contributions as well as the size of its crowd, which makes it an important source of news summaries for the public and the research community. Expand
Summarization of Changes in Dynamic Text Collections using Latent Dirichlet Allocation Model

Learning to Find Interesting Connections in Wikipedia
TLDR
This paper uses a modified Spreading Activation algorithm to identify connections between input concepts and proposes two approaches for link weighting and shows a strong correlation between used weighting methods and user preferences. Expand
Mining Meaning from Wikipedia
TLDR
This article focuses on research that extracts and makes use of the concepts, relations, facts and descriptions found in Wikipedia, and organizes the work into four broad categories: applying Wikipedia to natural language processing; using it to facilitate information retrieval and information extraction; and as a resource for ontology building.
