The Automatic Content Linking Device is a just-in-time document retrieval system that monitors an ongoing dialogue or monologue and enriches it with potentially related documents from local repositories or from the Web. The documents are found using queries that are built from the dialogue words, obtained through automatic speech recognition. Results are displayed in real time to the dialogue participants, or to people watching a recorded dialogue or a talk. The system can be demonstrated in both settings.
