Expose -- Exploratory Political Search


About Expose
English (USA)

Parliamentary proceedings and other transcripts of meetings are a common document genre characterized by a complex narrative structure. The essence is not only what is said, but also by who and to whom, and why. Standard search tools are tailored to the topical relevance of the content, focusing exclusively on the "what" is said. Modern Web formats based on XML allow for semantic annotations like the speaker of each speech in order to capture this debate structure, as well as the related content of debate. Up to now, unleashing these powerful cues required mastering a complex querying language, and significant "programming" skills, yet modern insights in exploratory search on structured data hold the promise to bring this power into the hands of researchers and the general public. The resulting tools exploit the semantic annotations to bring out what remains hidden in the plain text: the actual political process and strategies within a debate, as well as how the politics evolved over time -- of politicians, parties, and the political system as a whole -- providing a new data-driven perspective on our political history.
