An English-translated parallel corpus for the CJK Wikipedia collections

Ling-Xiang Tang, Shlomo Geva, Andrew Trotman
2012 Proceedings of the Seventeenth Australasian Document Computing Symposium on - ADCS '12  
In this paper, we describe a machine-translated parallel English corpus for the NTCIR Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) Wikipedia collections.  ...  Furthermore, the translated CJK articles could be used to further expand the current coverage of the English Wikipedia.  ...  The number of identified links for each identified anchor was limited to 5, in accordance with the NTCIR-9 CrossLink task specification.  ...

2010 Proceeding of the 33rd international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '10  
An in-depth analysis is also provided for discussing the impact of out-of-vocabulary and wrongly-translated query terms on CLIR performance.  ...  Experiments on the NTCIR-4 and NTCIR-5 English-Chinese CLIR tasks demonstrate that the proposed approach can significantly improve CLIR performance.  ...  We use NTCIR-4 and NTCIR-5 English-Chinese tasks for evaluation and consider both of the <title> and <desc> fields as queries.  ...

Probabilistic models for answer-ranking in multilingual question-answering

Jeongwoo Ko, Luo Si, Eric Nyberg, Teruko Mitamura
2010 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
This article presents two probabilistic models for answering ranking in the multilingual questionanswering (QA) task, which finds exact answers to a natural language question written in different languages  ...  This article first describes a probabilistic model that predicts the probabilities of correctness for individual answers in an independent way.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We would like to thank NTCIR for providing the Japanese and Chinese corpora and data set. We would also like to thank Jamie Callan for his valuable discussion and suggestions.  ...

2018 EURASIP Journal on Audio, Speech, and Music Processing  
This is a highly valuable task for blind people or devices that do not have a textbased input, and consequently, the query must be given in other format such as speech.  ...  Special attention was given to the evaluation design so that a thorough post-analysis of the main results could be carried out.  ...  Acknowledgements This work was partially supported by Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT) under the projects UID/EEA/50008/2013 (pluriannual funding in the scope of the LETSREAD project) and UID  ...

Emulating Human Conversations using Convolutional Neural Network-based IR [article]

Abhay Prakash, Chris Brockett, Puneet Agrawal
2016 arXiv   pre-print
To design a system that is capable of emulating human-like interactions, a conversational layer that can serve as a fabric for chat-like interaction with the agent is needed.  ...  significantly outperforms several conventional baselines in terms of the relevance of responses retrieved.  ...  Other recent neural retrieval models include a multilayer perceptron classifier [14] and three-layered neural networks [2] [6] in the NTCIR-12 short text conversation tasks.  ...

Cross-language Information Retrieval [article]

Petra Galuščáková, Douglas W. Oard, Suraj Nair
2021 arXiv   pre-print
This chapter reviews the state of the art for cross-language information retrieval and outlines some open research questions.  ...  Two key assumptions shape the usual view of ranked retrieval: (1) that the searcher can choose words for their query that might appear in the documents that they wish to see, and (2) that ranking retrieved  ...  The views and conclusions contained herein are those of the authors and should not be interpreted as necessarily representing the official policies, either expressed or implied, of ODNI, IARPA, or the  ...

Different Facets of Text Based Automated Question Answering System

vaishali Singh
2018 International Journal for Research in Applied Science and Engineering Technology  
Therefore, this paper attempts to present the state-of-the-art in the field of text based automatic question answering systems and provide a qualitative analysis of different facets.  ...  Finally, a summarized representation of these facets based on certain features of QA system has been done, to bring an insight for the future research.  ...  Such systems are quite similar to the text based dialogue system built upon mechanism of question answering systems [34] .  ...

On the Effectiveness of Contextualisation Techniques in Spoken Query Spoken Content Retrieval

David N. Racca, Gareth J.F. Jones
2016 Proceedings of the 39th International ACM SIGIR conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval - SIGIR '16  
Experimental results over the Japanese NTCIR SpokenQuery&Doc collection show that combining global and local context is beneficial for SCR and that models usually benefit from using larger amounts of context  ...  In this paper, we evaluate different contextualisation techniques, including a recently proposed technique based on positional language models (PLM) on the task of retrieving relevant spoken passages in  ...  SPOKEN TEST COLLECTION The SDPWS dataset has been used at recent editions of the NTCIR SpokenQuery&Doc (SQD) tasks [1] .  ...

LeQua@CLEF2022: Learning to Quantify

Esuli, Moreo, Sebastiani

A Survey on Retrieval of Mathematical Knowledge [article]

F. Guidi, C. Sacerdoti Coen
2015 arXiv   pre-print
We present a short survey of the literature on indexing and retrieval of mathematical knowledge, with pointers to 72 papers and tentative taxonomies of both retrieval problems and recurring techniques.  ...  For example, the system that scored better at the last NTCIR task reports better scores when applied to content markup generated from L A T E X w.r.t. presentation only markup [RSL14] .  ...  The situation is improving since 2013 with the creation of a math oriented task in the NTCIR initiative [AKO13, AKO14] that is attracting a small, but increasing number of participants [GWHT14, GPBB14,  ...

Automatic text summarization: What has been done and what has to be done [article]

Abdelkrime Aries, Djamel eddine Zegour, Walid Khaled Hidouci
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Most of these challenges are much more related to the nature of processed languages. These challenges are interesting for academics and developers, as a path to follow in this field.  ...  Automatic summarization and, in particular, Automatic text summarization (ATS) is not a new research field; It was known since the 50s.  ...  The aim of this track is to develop ATS systems that afford short, coherent summaries of document. This task is meant to promote a deep linguistic analysis for ATS.  ...
