Aspect Based Clustering for Turkish News

Aspect Based Clustering for Turkish News

Seher Acer, Baak akar, Elif Demirli, adiye Kaptanolu Introduction Motivation Aspect Based Clustering Modeling Aspects Aspect Extraction Framing Cycle-Aware Clustering

User Interface & Demo Conclusion References 2/14 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

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 5/14 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 7/14

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

11/14 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
