Assisted Browsing for Semistructured Data
Speaker: Vineet Sinha , CSAIL
Systems trying to help users deal with information overload need to support the use of structured information - like creation dates - while at the same time allowing for irregularity and evolution of the data schemas. We have developed a general-purpose tool for helping users seek information in repositories where objects are linked by arbitrary relationships and have arbitrary properties and values. We show how such a tool can be built without making any domain-specific assumptions about the information being explored.
