A Comparison of Score, Rank and Probability-Based Fusion Methods for Video Shot Retrieval [chapter]

Kieran Mc Donald, Alan F. Smeaton

Toward a Robust data fusion for document retrieval

Daqing He, Dan Wu
2008 2008 International Conference on Natural Language Processing and Knowledge Engineering

Aggregation of Multiple Pseudo-Relevance Feedbacks for Image Search Reranking

Wei-Chao Lin
2019 IEEE Access  
Image retrieval effectiveness can be improved by pseudo relevance feedback (PRF), which automatically uses top-k images of the initial retrieval result as the pseudo feedback.  ...  In particular, different combinations of the original retrieval result with the result of PRF and the result of PRF by pseudo positive and negative feedbacks, using a strategy based on the Borda count,  ...  Another post-retrieval approach is based on combining multiple search results by search result aggregation.  ...

Study on Merging Multiple Results from Information Retrieval System

Hiromi Ozaku, Masao Utiyama, Hitoshi Isahara, Yasuyuki Kono, Masatsugu Kidode
2002 NTCIR Conference on Evaluation of Information Access Technologies  
We participated in Web retrieval tasks in order to investigate the integration of multiple retrieval results.  ...  On the other hand, if the systems use Rocchio's feedback method, ranked results are shown to be the best.  ...  The multiple systems are called meta-search systems. The conventional meta-search systems need to combine the returned lists of pages from different search engines.  ...

Extending test collection pools without manual runs

Gaya K. Jayasinghe, William Webber, Mark Sanderson, J. Shane Culpepper
2014 Proceedings of the 37th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research & development in information retrieval - SIGIR '14  
Information retrieval test collections traditionally use a combination of automatic and manual runs to create a pool of documents to be judged.  ...  By combining a simple voting approach with machine learning from documents retrieved by automatic runs, we are able to identify a large portion of relevant documents that would normally only be found through  ...  Figure 4 : 4 Kendall's τ correlation of IR system rankings with varying number of automatic systems in the pool.  ...

Towards More Effective Techniques for Automatic Query Expansion [chapter]

Extreme video retrieval

Alexander G. Hauptmann, Wei-Hao Lin, Rong Yan, Jun Yang, Ming-Yu Chen
2006 Proceedings of the 14th annual ACM international conference on Multimedia - MULTIMEDIA '06  
In either case, as humans search and find relevant results, the system can invisibly re-rank its previous best guesses using a number of knowledge sources, such as image similarity, text similarity, and  ...  Experimental evidence shows a significant improvement using the combined extremes of human and machine power over either approach alone.  ...  We plan to also conduct an examination of the types of errors humans make when looking at a list of results but failing to see the relevant shots (misses) as well as the situations where humans are erroneously  ...
