Abstract

Most existing faceted search systems enable filtering of information via facet and values which are derived from structured form. However, in many domains, there are interesting aspects where information can be further refined based on the contents of the domain. This contents are unstructured hence poses challenge to extract the value dynamically from them. This paper showcases a faceted search system that enables generation of facets and values dynamically from unstructured text to further improve the results filtering of retrieval process. The system is demonstrated in the context of bibliographical search.
