Traditional information retrieval approaches deal with retrieving full-text document as a response to a user's query. However, applications that go beyond the "ten blue links" and make use of additional information to display and interact with search results are becoming increasingly popular and adopted by all major search engines. In addition, recent advances in text extraction allow for inferring semantic information over particular items present in textual documents. In this talk I will present how enhancing a document with structures derived from shallow parsing is able to convey a different user experience in search and browsing scenarios, and what challenges we face as a consequence.
