Abstract:

We describe a demonstration system built upon Topic Detection and Tracking TDT technology. The demonstration system monitors a stream of news stories, organizes them into clusters that represent topics, presents the clusters to a user, and visually describes the changes that occur in those clusters over time. A user may also mark certain clusters as interesting, so that they can be tracked more easily.
