Context Profiles

While the user is accessing documents, we can use WordSieve to build a profile of the current context. Intuitively, the context profile should consist of the words which are frequent in that particular document stream and have high values in the user profile. We achieve this in WordSieve by multiplying the excitement values of words in level 1 and their values in the upper levels. These words should be characteristic of the sets of document sequences.
