Predicting essay quality from search and writing behavior

Pertti Vakkari, Michael Völske, Martin Potthast, Matthias Hagen, Benno Stein
2021 Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology  
Since the boil-down and build-up writing strategies identified in previous research have been found to affect search behavior, we model each writing strategy separately.  ...  In a nutshell: essay quality improves if search and writing strategies harmonize-build-up writers benefit from focused, in-depth querying, while boil-down writers fare better with a broader and shallower  ...  Boil-down writers search and collect information in bursts and tend to gather much more content than is needed for the essay text; an editing and shortening phase follows the search phase.  ...

Development and catch efficiency of an attracting device to collect and monitor the invasive fireworm Hermodice carunculata in the Mediterranean Sea

ROBERTO SIMONINI, SARA RIGHI, FEDERICA ZANETTI, SERGIO FAI, DANIELA PREVEDELLI
2021 Mediterranean Marine Science  
Future applications will be critical to improve deployment success and test user friendliness.  ...  However, increased H. carunculata abundance and distribution may be miscalculated and underestimated due to the lack of effective tools for collection and monitoring.  ...  Noteworthy, 3 traps baited with boiled white eggs were retrieved empty, while 2 traps with fish contained 30 specimens each.  ...

Predicting the cost-quality trade-off for information retrieval queries

Henk Ernst Blok, Djoerd Hiemstra, Sunil Choenni, Franciska de Jong, Henk M. Blanken, Peter M.G. Apers
2001 Proceedings of the tenth international conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM'01  
In particular we investigate the possibility to predict the retrieval quality for a document collection for which no training information is available, which is usually the case in practice.  ...  These results show that our model performs quite well, even for the case were we did not train it on the test collection itself.  ...  The problem of interest then boils down to the question what should happen to f to make sCm (Q) < sCh2 (Q), for that same query Q.  ...

Effectiveness/efficiency tradeoffs for candidate generation in multi-stage retrieval architectures

Nima Asadi, Jimmy Lin
2013 Proceedings of the 36th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '13  
This paper examines a multi-stage retrieval architecture consisting of a candidate generation stage, a feature extraction stage, and a reranking stage using machine-learned models.  ...  Test Collections and Metrics We performed experiments on the ClueWeb09 collection, a best-first web crawl from early 2009.  ...  On average, SvSSpam is the fastest since the ranking function is query independent: score computation boils down to table lookups of spam scores.  ...

Learning to model relatedness for news recommendation

Yuanhua Lv, Taesup Moon, Pranam Kolari, Zhaohui Zheng, Xuanhui Wang, Yi Chang
2011 Proceedings of the 20th international conference on World wide web - WWW '11  
In order to quantitatively evaluate our proposed measures and learn a unified relatedness function, we construct a large test collection based on a four-month commercial news corpus with editorial judgments  ...  We can see that both methods boil down to computing the similarity/distance between the contexts of two documents.  ...  Most work boils down to balancing relevance and novelty in an ad-hoc way, such as the two-state novelty detection approach proposed in [39] .  ...

Mining the Web for Synonyms: PMI-IR versus LSA on TOEFL [chapter]

Peter D. Turney
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The algorithm, called PMI-IR, uses Pointwise Mutual Information (PMI) and Information Retrieval (IR) to measure the similarity of pairs of words.  ...  PMI-IR is empirically evaluated using 80 synonym test questions from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and 50 synonym test questions from a collection of tests for students of English as  ...  The algorithm, called PMI-IR, uses Pointwise Mutual Information (PMI) [1, 2] to analyze statistical data collected by Information Retrieval (IR).  ...

Parsimonious language models for information retrieval

Djoerd Hiemstra, Stephen Robertson, Hugo Zaragoza
2004 Proceedings of the 27th annual international conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '04  
We systematically investigate a new approach to estimating the parameters of language models for information retrieval, called parsimonious language models.  ...  We apply parsimonious models at three stages of the retrieval process: 1) at indexing time; 2) at search time; 3) at feedback time.  ...  The approach needs a parameter λ which is set empirically on some test collection, or alternatively estimated by the EM-algorithm on a test collection [14, 16] .  ...

2010 BMC Infectious Diseases  
Conclusions: Both conventional and recombinant based ELISA give useful information, however there are commercial tests without technical reports and therefore were not included in this review.  ...  PCR heterogeneity was not explained, but a threshold effect was detected in three groups created by using guanidine and boiling the sample before DNA extraction.  ...  one blood sample; blood volume collected in each sample ranged from 1 ml to 15 ml; six did not inform storage condition and none informed time gap between blood collection and DNA extraction; ten studies  ...

A two-stage model for blog feed search

Wouter Weerkamp, Krisztian Balog, Maarten de Rijke
2010 Proceeding of the 33rd international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '10  
An individual's search behavior often involves a combination of exploratory behavior triggered by salient features of the information objects being examined plus goal-directed in-depth information seeking  ...  The other type of approaches, post-based models, start from a ranking of blog posts and scores of individual posts are aggregated in order to infer a ranking of blogs [1, 2, 4] ; these models boil down  ...  Even though the unit of retrieval is blogs, the indexing unit should be blog posts, as this allows for easy incremental indexing, and the use of a single index for both blog feed search and blog post retrieval  ...

Activity Dependent Protein Degradation Is Critical for the Formation and Stability of Fear Memory in the Amygdala

Timothy J. Jarome, Craig T. Werner, Janine L. Kwapis, Fred J. Helmstetter, Efthimios M. C. Skoulakis
2011 PLoS ONE  
Here we provide the first evidence that protein degradation through the UPS is critically engaged at amygdala synapses during memory formation and retrieval.  ...  Furthermore, retrieval of fear memory results in a second wave of NMDA-dependent polyubiquitination that targets proteins involved in translational silencing and synaptic structure and is critical for  ...  Before testing of each rat, the chambers in Context B were wiped down with a 5% acetic acid solution.  ...

Credibility-inspired ranking for blog post retrieval

Wouter Weerkamp, Maarten de Rijke
2012 Information retrieval (Boston)  
Credibility of information refers to its believability or the believability of its sources.  ...  The retrieval task at hand is precision-oriented, and we hypothesize that the use of credibility-inspired indicators will positively impact precision.  ...  For all our retrieval tasks we only use the title field (T) of the topic statement as query; this boils down to the use of keyword queries.  ...
