Demo-Paper "QuoteMine: A Repository of Newsworthy Quotes" accepted at GSCL 2013

Our paper "QuoteMine: A Repository of Newsworthy Quotes", authored by Alan Akbik and Martin Schenck, has been accepted for presentation at the International Conference of the German Society for Computational Linguistics and Language Technology (GSCL 2013) in Darmstadt, Germany.

Abstract

We present QuoteMine, a repository of newsworthy German language quotes that is automatically gathered from newswire text on the Web. The project is available online through a Web interface that allows users to query for all quotes of certain persons, all quotes that contain specific keywords, or both. Each quote is displayed with a link to the news article in which it was found, as well as an automatically computed sentiment value. Our system runs continuously, keeping up-to-date with the current stream of online news. In this demonstration, we illustrate the design of our system and show how relatively simple Information Extraction methods can be used on large amounts of text to create a large repository of structured data. We discuss present challenges and future ideas.
