Title
Experiments on the automatic construction of hypertext from texts
Source
New review of hypermedia and multimedia. 1995, no.1, S.23-39.
Year
1995
Abstract
Describes an approach to semi-automatically generate a hypertext from linear texts, based on initially creatign nodes and composite nodes composed of 'mini-hypertexts'. Node-node similarity values are computed using standard information retrieval techniques and these similarity measures are then used to selectively create node-node links based on the strength of similarity between them. The process is a novel one because the link creation process also uses values from a dynamically computed metric which measures the topological compactness of the overall hypertext being generated. Describes experiments on generating a hypertext from a collection of 846 software product descriptions comprising 8,5 MBytes of text which yield some guidelines on how the process should be automated. This text to hypertext conversion method is put into the context of an overall hypertext authoring tool currently under development
