<p>An explanation system developed to overcome the disadvantages of conventional authoring in multimedia applications is presented. This experimental test bed for the automated generation of multimedia explanations is called COMET (coordinated multim...
Leveraging a Common Representation for Personalized Search and Summarization in a Medical Digital Library
Found in: Digital Libraries, Joint Conference on
By Kathleen R. McKeown, Noemie Elhadad, Vasileios Hatzivassiloglou
Issue Date:May 2003
pp. 159
Despite the large amount of online medical literature, it can be difficult for clinicians to find relevant information at the point of patient care. In this paper, we present techniques to personalize the results of search, making use of the online patient...

By Enrique Henestroza, James Allan, Kathleen R. McKeown, Kristen Parton
Issue Date:October 2008
pp. 1001-1001
We consider the problem of translingual information retrieval, where monolingual searchers issue queries in a different language than the document language(s) and the results must be returned in the language they know, the query language. We present a fram...
