Abstract

The web and the social web play an increasingly important role as an information source for Members of Parliament and their assistants, journalists, political analysts and researchers. It provides important and crucial background information, like reactions to political events and comments made by the general public. The case study presented in this paper is driven by two European parliaments (the Greek and the Austrian parliament) and targets an effective exploration of political web archives. In this paper, we describe semantic technologies deployed to ease the exploration of the archived web and social web content and present evaluation results.
Keywords: web archiving; semantic content analysis; entity and event extraction; enrichment; topic detection; parliament libraries web archiving; semantic content analysis; entity and event extraction; enrichment; topic detection; parliament libraries
