We will develop algorithms to automatically generate descriptive labels for large collections of web documents. Such labels can be used by companies in order to decide on which web sites they want to place advertisements, or by electronic publishers to categorize media offers. Currently, there doesn't exist any approach that can robustly and automatically label clusters of documents with a level of quality that approaches human labellers.
