    Intelligent Text Retrieval Based on Document Similarities

    The talk will discuss a prototypical implementation of a software tool
    for document retrieval which
    groups/arranges (pre-processed) documents based on a similarity measure.
    The prototype was
    developed based on self-organising maps to realise an interactive
    associative search and a visual
    exploration of the document database. This helps the user to navigate
    through similar documents.
    The navigation, especially the search for the first appropriate
    document, is still supported by
    conventional keyword search methods.
    The talk will briefly review the concepts of self-organising systems.
    Furthermore, the implemented
    document preprocessing and the methods used for grouping the text
    documents will be discussed.

    Biosketch

    Andreas Nürnberger studied computer science and economics (operations
    research) at the University
    of Braunschweig, Germany, and graduated in computer science in 1996.
    >From 1997 to 2001 he worked at
    the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg and moved to the
    University of California, Berkeley
    in April 2001. His main research topics are neural networks, fuzzy
    systems and its combinations. He
    is escpecially interested in applications of these techniques in system
    identification, simulation
    and in the area of (text) data mining.
