Peng Zhang, Jingfei Li, Benyou Wang, Xiaozhao Zhao, Dawei Song, Yuexian Hou, Massimo Melucci
2016 Entropy  
We then apply the new quantum query expansion model to session search, which is a typical Web search task.  ...  Among them, a typical one is applying the idea of photon polarization in IR tasks, e.g., for document ranking and query expansion.  ...  Based on this postulation, we built a novel Quantum interference based Query Expansion (QQE) model, and implemented this quantum query expansion model in the session search task.  ...

Processing Queries in Session in a Quantum-Inspired IR Framework [chapter]

Ingo Frommholz, Benjamin Piwowarski, Mounia Lalmas, Keith van Rijsbergen
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In a search session, users tend to reformulate their queries, for instance because they want to generalise or specify them, or because they are undergoing a drift in their information need.  ...  In this poster, we propose an approach inspired by quantum mechanics to represent queries and their reformulations as density operators.  ...  Processing Queries in Session We illustrate the approach for the simple case of two queries, a query q and a consecutive query q , although it can potentially be extended to a session of more than 2 queries  ...

Modeling Multi-query Retrieval Tasks Using Density Matrix Transformation

Qiuchi Li, Jingfei Li, Peng Zhang, Dawei Song
2015 Proceedings of the 38th International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval - SIGIR '15  
In this paper, we propose a Session-based Quantum Language Model (SQLM) that deals with multi-query session search task.  ...  In QLM, a density matrix, defined on the quantum probabilistic space, is estimated as a representation of user's search intention with respect to a specific query.  ...  Therefore, it is safe and reasonable to conclude that the proposed Session-based Quantum Language Model(SQLM) is a feasible expansion of classical Quantum Language Model(QLM) on the multi-query session  ...

Reinforcement Learning-driven Information Seeking: A Quantum Probabilistic Approach [article]

Amit Kumar Jaiswal, Haiming Liu, Ingo Frommholz
2020 arXiv   pre-print
However, an information forager, in general, accompanies a piece of information (information diet) while searching (or foraging) alternative contents, typically subject to decisive uncertainty.  ...  Such types of uncertainty are analogous to measurements in quantum mechanics which follow the uncertainty principle. In this paper, we discuss information seeking as a reinforcement learning task.  ...  Acknowledgements This work is part of the Quantum Access and Retrieval Theory (QUARTZ) project, which has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under  ...

A Survey of Quantum Theory Inspired Approaches to Information Retrieval [article]

Sagar Uprety and Dimitris Gkoumas and Dawei Song
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Although Quantum-inspired IR is still a growing area, a wide array of work in different aspects of IR has been done and produced promising results.  ...  Since 2004, researchers have been using the mathematical framework of Quantum Theory (QT) in Information Retrieval (IR). QT offers a generalized probability and logic framework.  ...  The authors are hopeful that this literature survey is able to provide a clear picture of the quantum-inspired IR field and set a road-map for researchers to take this field forward.  ...
