Temporal Diversification of Search Results

The paper "Temporal Diversification of Search Results" by Klaus Berberich and Srikanta Bedathur has been accepted for the Workshop on Time-aware Information Access (TAIA2013) in conjunction with SIGIR 2013.

We investigate the notion of temporal diversity, bringing together two recently active threads of research, namely temporal ranking and diversification of search results. A novel method is developed to determine search results consisting of documents that are relevant to the query and were published at diverse times of interest to the query. Preliminary experiments on twenty years’ worth of newspaper articles from The New York Times demonstrate characteristics of our method and compare it against two baselines.
