Topy employs a state-of-the-art Twitter hashtag recommender to continuously annotate news articles with hashtags, a rich meta-data source that allows connecting articles under drastically different timelines than typical keyword based story tracking systems. Employing social tags for story tracking has the following advantages: (1) social annotation of news enables the detection of emerging concepts and topic drift in a story; (2) hashtags go beyond topics by grouping articles based on connected themes (e.g., #rip, #blacklivesmatter, #icantbreath); (3) hashtags link articles that focus on subplots of the same story (e.g., #palmyra, #isis, #refugeecrisis).||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Springer||Start page:||45||End page:||49||Series/Report no.:||Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 9853)||Copyright (published version):||2016 Springer||Keywords:||Machine learning; Statistics; Story tracking; News; Social media; Social tags||DOI:||10.1007/978-3-319-46131-1_10||Other versions:||http://ecmlpkdd2016.org/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Berendt, B., Bringmann, B., Fromont, E., Garriga, G., Miettinen, P., Tatti, N. and Tresp, V.
