Ehlen Patrick, Purver Matthew, Niekrasz John. A meeting browser that learns, in Interaction Challenges for Intelligent Assistants: Papers from the 2007 AAAI Spring Symposium: Technical Report SS-07-04, AAAI Press, pp. 33-40, Mar 2007.


We present a system for extracting useful information from multi-party meetings and presenting the results to users via a browser. Users can view automatically extracted discussion topics and action items, initially seeing high-level descriptions, but with the ability to click through to meeting audio and video.
