2 Introduction Motivation Aspect Based Clustering Modeling Aspects Aspect Extraction Framing Cycle-Aware Clustering User Interface & Demo Conclusion References 2/14

3 News are produced in multiple stages: Gathering, writing, editing, etc. Subjective opinion of producers, owners, advertisers – biased environment Effort needed for a comprehensive and balanced understanding of a news event A system that guides and encourages reader to read news from different perspectives 3/14

4 Current systems provide limited presentation of news Listing news arbitrarily or according to date A system that helps users reach news from different viewpoints via a single portal Capture the difference of aspects within articles reporting a common news story Use of advanced computational techniques of information retrieval 4/14

5 5/14

6 Aspect: keyword-weight pairs Keywords are extracted from Head, sub-head, lead GATE (General Architecture for Text Engineering) Person, organization, location Event extraction (Zemberek) Frequently used action words/phrases 6/14

7 7/14

8 Set of articles on a news shows head-tail characteristics Head – common aspects Tail – uncommon aspects Separation of head and tail provides effective classification Two steps: Head-tail partitioning Tail-side clustering 8/14

9 Generate common-uncommon keyword sets HgP: head group proportion Calculate keyword commonness & uncommonness Commonness – an article with many common keywords with high weight values Uncommonness - an article with many uncommon keywords with high weight values 9/14

10 Agglomerative hierarchical clustering Similarity measure – Cosine similarity During Agglomerative Clustering Each object forms a cluster of its own as a singleton Pairs of clusters are merged iteratively until a certain stopping criterion is met In the merging process - the similarity between two clusters is measured by the similarity of the most similar pair of sequences belonging to these two clusters (the single-link approach) 10/14

11 Simple & user-friendly Present news from different aspects fairly Motivate reader to read news from different aspects 11/14

12 Existing systems: Google news, Yahoo News Limited presentation News listed arbitrarily Proposed system: Gathers same news with existing systems Clusters news according to aspects Simple user interface Easy to track news stories The approach is suitable for Turkish news 12/14
