Storytelling in the National Nuclear Archive

Start Date: 04/01/2007
End Date: 09/01/2007

The intent of this collaborative effort is to explore the use of Storytelling technology developed at Virginia Tech in the nuclear domain.  Storytelling is a data mining algorithm that has enabled bioinformatics researchers to discover hidden associations and influences in biological processes through connections in the academic literature.   Due to the volume of academic literature available currently, it has become manually infeasible to integrate information across them and conduct knowledge discovery. Storytelling automates this process by allowing the researcher to formulate a request for connections between given start and end points, and automatically finds relevant connections as a series of related documents. We propose to apply storytelling to a corpus of documents authored in the nuclear domain and answer specific questions as a series of connected documents.
