Abstract

The current system returns search results for a given query grouped by one or more perspective, with each grouping ordered according to how representative (or valuable) the matches are to the given perspective. The current system also automatically determines the perspectives (and sub-perspectives) that are relevant to the matches of the query, enabling selection of those of interest. The current system supports Boolean combinations of two or more perspectives (e.g., economic AND government). Finally, the current system also supports perspectives that have two or more value-dimensions (e.g., expertise and/or recency for the perspective of government)

Search and Navigation using Perspectives

The current system returns search results for a given query grouped by one or more perspective, with each grouping ordered according to how representative (or valuable) the matches are to the given perspective. The current system also automatically determines the perspectives (and sub-perspectives) that are relevant to the matches of the query, enabling selection of those of interest.The current system supports Boolean combinations of two or more perspectives (e.g., economic AND government), The current system also supports perspectives that have two or more value-dimensions (e.g., expertise and/or recency for the perspective of government)

Flow:

Given a search query, the system first finds the articles matching the query
The system then determines the perspectives and sub-perspectives relevant to the query results, (possibly enabling an end-user to select the one or more perspective of interest to them).

The system the outputs the search results related to each of the selected perspectives, the results grouped according to their associated perspective and ordered in each grouping according to the how representative (or valuable) the source of the given result is with respect to the given grouping's perspective.
