The paper Human-competative tagging using automatic keyphrase extraction, co-authored with Eibe Frank and Ian Witten, was accepted for the EMNLP conference in Singapore this August.

We evaluate the tagging quality of the users of the collaborative platform CiteULike. Then we apply the keyphrase extraction algorithm Kea and the topic indexing algorithm Maui to the same documents and compare the automatically assigned tags to those assigned by humans. Maui performs better than many of CiteULike's best taggers.
