Abstract
As the size of the World Wide Web and the type of documents it holds grow, the need for tools helping users to find their required information becomes more increasingly important. There are several ways to summarize, navigate through or retrieve documents on the web, such as query-based search and tag clouds; but neither are sufficient for both getting a summary and finding desired documents. In this thesis, we introduce BubbleNet: a new interface that helps users to get an overview of document collections and explore them by providing an interactive network of topics, their semantic relationships and their related documents. Our experiments show that BubbleNet gives a better overview, is faster and more useful in certain information retrieval tasks.
