Title: CORRELATING THE RESULTS OF A COMPUTER NETWORK TEXT SEARCH WITH RELEVANT MULTIMEDIA FILES
Abstract:
A method and apparatus for automatic retrieval, organization, correlation and presentation of text, image, audio, or video data in a correlated manner. User presents a query and searches a database available on a computer network to locate a document. The document is automatically parsed to identify key terms which are used to automatically search databases available on the computer network using a search engine, such as an image search engine. Information in the multimedia documents is compared to the key terms and to the query and the other documents are ranked by relevance using a variety of techniques: ranking, indexing, statistical analysis and natural language processing. Each information portion in the first document is correlated with the most relevant other fil for that information portion. The resulting correlated information is displayed to the user in a correlated and temporally close presentation of text, audio, image or video data.
