EVIN: Extracting Named Events from News

EVIN Demo Video

In this demo, we show how EVIN can extract named events on-the-fly based on a user's specific interests. EVIN provides a GUI that allows users to query the system, to browse the extracted events along a timeline visualization, and to explore details about events and the associated news.
