So over the next few days my main aim is to obtain a topic name, and also get the requirements for the project. Tomorrow (Monday) i'll be meeting with both Daniel, and Rafael about teh project and the direction i should be heading. So far i have only read a few papers on the genreal topic. I will be posting a detalied analysis on each paper when i get the time :).
The general area of the topic is: News Topic tracking over time. That is looking at how news stories evolve over time, and more importantly how they are covered.
The topic is with Vision Bytes, a company that already have a access to a large variety of textual data.
