Description

EVERBEST is a research project funded by the Unity Through Knowledge Fund under the Crossing Borders Grant (1B). In a nutshell in EVERBEST we focus on researching event-focused information needs of general public and professionals (journalists and financial analysts) and developing event-based representations of news content and generalization operators that are optimal for satisfying these information needs. Why? Because we believe that efficient search and recommendation over events from news demand technology far beyond traditional keyword-based text retrieval and recommendation methodology.
