Telling Breaking News Stories from Wikipedia with Social Multimedia: A Case Study of the 2014 Winter Olympics

This week, I am attending the International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval (ICMR 2014) in Glasgow, Scotland. I contributed a paper to the workshop on Social Multimedia and Storytelling (SoMuS 2014) based on my work around combining Wikipedia Live Monitor and Social Media Illustrator. The title of the paper is Telling Breaking News Stories from Wikipedia with Social Multimedia: A Case Study of the 2014 Winter Olympics, you can read it on arXiv.org (deeplink to the PDF). My slides are available online and also embedded below.



This research was also featured by the MIT Technology Review in an article titled The Evolution of Automated Breaking News Stories.
