ContextGuide Use-Case: Semantic Online News-Portal

Online news-portals make latest articles quickly and globally available without providing additional value in terms of search efficiency. A semantic news-portal based on ContextGuide links articles with respect to their meaning and ties them with themes, companies, persons, locations, etc. The resulting network can optionally be shown to the user with the help of a graph for navigation. The cross-references allow the semantic backend to reasonable guide users when browsing for related articles, stories, persons, and so on.
