  • Patent number: 8280886
    Abstract: A predetermined number of temporary terms are obtained that have the highest differential affinity to each of a number of candidate terms. Each temporary term and the associated differential affinity is placed into a set of temporary terms. An average differential affinity is calculated for each temporary term of the set of temporary terms, the average differential affinity representing an average of differential affinities from the each temporary term to every term of the initial set of terms. One or more terms with an average differential affinity that fails to satisfy a predetermined threshold are removed from the temporary set. One or more terms of the temporary set with differential affinities above the threshold are placed into the set of candidate terms. One or more terms of the set of candidate terms are selected and output to a user.
