Applying the Divergence from Randomness Approach for Content-Only Search in XML Documents [chapter]

Mohammad Abolhassani, Norbert Fuhr
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we investigate the application of a specific language model for this task, namely Amati's approach of divergence from randomness.  ...  First, we investigate different ways for applying this model without modification by redefining the concept of an (atomic) document for the XML setting.  ...  In the future, we will study also other language models and investigate different extensions for coping with XML retrieval.  ...

OUC's Participation in the 2010 INEX Book Track [chapter]

Michael Preminger, Ragnar Nordlie
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
For the Linked data task, we wish to explore the possibility of using links as a query expansion mechanism.  ...  In 2011, the OUC submitted retrieval results for the "Prove It" task with traditional relevance detection combined with detection of confrmation based on specificity detected through the Wordnet concept  ...  Obviously, we are looking for a passage which expresses a relevant truth about the claim, but what are the characteristics which signal a sufficient degree of relevance and truthfulness?  ...

A multi-ranker model for adaptive XML searching

Ho Lam Lau, Wilfred Ng
2007 The VLDB journal  
In this paper, we employ a list of simple XML tagged keywords as a vehicle for searching XML fragments in a collection of XML documents.  ...  As XML has become a defacto standard for exchanging Web data, an interesting and practical research problem is the development of models and techniques to satisfy various needs and preferences in searching  ...  We adopt the INEX 2006 collection [18] , which is the Wikipedia XMLCorpus that provides a set of 659,388 XML documents together with a set of standard queries and their relevance assessments for the retrieval  ...

Repeatable and reliable search system evaluation using crowdsourcing

Roi Blanco, Harry Halpin, Daniel M. Herzig, Peter Mika, Jeffrey Pound, Henry S. Thompson, Thanh Tran Duc
2011 Proceedings of the 34th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in Information - SIGIR '11  
To demonstrate, we investigate creating an evaluation campaign for the semantic search task of keyword-based ad-hoc object retrieval.  ...  The primary problem confronting any new kind of search task is how to boot-strap a reliable and repeatable evaluation campaign, and a crowd-sourcing approach provides many advantages.  ...  We have tested this by subsampling, i.e. selecting randomly a single assessment for each item from the six assessments we have collected in total.  ...
