Abstract

This paper presents the design of a new interface for interactive Topic Detection and Tracking (TDT) called Ievent. It is composed of 3 main views; a Cluster View, a Document View, and a Named Entity View, supporting the user in identifying new events and tracking them in a news stream. The interface has also been designed to test the usefulness in interactive TDT of named entity recognition. We report some initial findings from a user study on the effectiveness of our novel interface.
