A geometric interpretation of r-precision and its correlation with average precision

Javed A. Aslam, Emine Yilmaz, Virgiliu Pavlu
2005 Proceedings of the 28th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '05  
It is well known that average precision and R-precision are highly correlated and similarly robust measures of performance, though the reasons for this are not entirely clear.  ...  In this paper, we give a geometric argument which shows that under a very reasonable set of assumptions, average precision and R-precision both approximate the area under the precision-recall curve, thus  ...  In this paper, we provide a geometric interpretation of R-precision which shows that under a very reasonable set of assumptions, average precision and R-precision both approximate the area under the precision-recall  ...

The Significance of Recall in Automatic Metrics for MT Evaluation [chapter]

Alon Lavie, Kenji Sagae, Shyamsundar Jayaraman
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Recent research has shown that a balanced harmonic mean (F1 measure) of unigram precision and recall outperforms the widely used BLEU and NIST metrics for Machine Translation evaluation in terms of correlation  ...  While this may seem unexpected, since BLEU and NIST focus on n-gram precision and disregard recall, our experiments show that correlation with human judgments is highest when almost all of the weight is  ...  -Use of Geometric Averaging of N-grams: Geometric averaging results in a score of "zero" whenever one of the component n-gram scores is zero.  ...
