Personal Research Assistant for Online Exploration of Historical News

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/konferenshandlingKonferensbidragVetenskapligPeer review


We present a novel environment for exploratory search in
large collections of historical newspapers developed as a part of the News-
Eye project. In this paper we focus on the intelligent Personal Research
Assistant (PRA) component in the environment and the web interface.
The PRA is an interactive exploratory engine that combines results of
various text analysis tools in an unsupervised fashion to conduct au-
tonomous investigations on the data according to users’ needs. The PRA
is freely available online together with some datasets of European his-
torical newspapers. The methods used by the assistant are of potential
benefit to other exploratory search applications.
