I can't find much documentation on this, but I think this is not
what I was thinking of. In fact I think Nucular already supports
I was thinking of a situation that would
support interactions like this (quickly and cheaply):
User: I'm thinking of "Denver"
System: I see the value "Denver" in the following contexts:
City: Denver [100000 entries]
(for example in "Colorado Trombone Players Association")
Surname: Denver [100000 entries]
(for example "Denver, John, songwriter")
Title: Denver [1000 entries]
(for example in "Stuck in Denver Again, by Albert Smiley")
... and also some other contexts
Which do you mean?
User: I'm actually looking for the surname...
In other words you don't get "documents" containing
the search term(s) but statistics on how many documents
contain each search term in a given context.
I'm pretty sure there must be a standard name for this kind
of thing, anybody? Thanks!
