Two grad students at U of Toronto have been working this term on a tool to
analyze chat conversations (IRC, IM, etc.) and cluster messages into
threads. They presented their work this afternoon, and will be doing
another presentation on April 9; I think it has promise, especially since
they're using incremental algorithms that would be well-suited to
real-time execution. They're not going to carry on with it (they have
thesis topics picked out, and this ain't it :-), but the long-term goal
would be to build something that could plug into various clients, or be
used to process logs.
Would this make a good project for XMPP SoC? It would require a student
who already has some understanding of IR, clustering algorithms, and NLP,
but it could help make large chat spaces more usable. I'd be willing to
