Title:Composite Events: A Fact-based Representation
Author(s):Nakashole, Ndapandula
Subject(s):information seeking/retrieval
text/data/knowledge mining
Abstract:For any given newsworthy event, thousands of articles, blog posts, micro-blog posts and social network status updates are often published about it. This is an overload to a reader who wants to quickly grasp the key aspects of an event. Addressing this requires a representation that characterizes events in a succinct yet descriptive manner. This poster proposes a fact-based event representation. Methods from prior work mostly generate events as clusters of related entities. No explicit semantic relations between the entities are given. Thus the entity-based representation exhibits succinctness but lacks descriptiveness. Preliminary experiments show the potential of a fact-based event representation.
