Federated search of text search engines in uncooperative environments

Luo Si
2007 SIGIR Forum  
My first debt of gratitude must go to my advisor, Jamie Callan, for taking me on as a student and for leading me through many aspects of my academic career.  ...  This experience has been extremely valuable to me and I will treasure it for the rest of my life.  ...  For example, resource selection algorithms need source size estimates to adjust (normalize) the information source selection scores for accommodating the widely varying information source size distributions  ...

Unified utility maximization framework for resource selection

Luo Si, Jamie Callan
2004 Proceedings of the Thirteenth ACM conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '04  
This paper presents a unified utility framework for resource selection of distributed text information retrieval.  ...  This new model provides a more solid framework for distributed information retrieval. Empirical studies show that it is at least as effective as other state-of-the-art algorithms.  ...  Distributed document retrieval is a more sophisticated task. It selects relevant information sources for users' queries as the database recommendation system does.  ...

An Application Framework for Distributed Information Retrieval [chapter]

Fabio Simeoni, Leif Azzopardi, Fabio Crestani
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To date, the adoption of content-based Distributed Information Retrieval (DIR) solutions within the domain of Digital Libraries (DL) remains rather limited.  ...  We conclude with a summary of future plans for its large scale deployment, testing and evaluation within this context.  ...  Introduction For over ten years, research in Distributed Information Retrieval (DIR) has sought efficient and effective ways of retrieving intellectual content which is distributed across internetworked  ...

Federated Search [chapter]

Susan Dumais, Magdalena Balazinska, Jeong-Hyon Hwang, Mehul A. Shah, Raimondo Schettini, Gianluigi Ciocca, Isabella Gagliardi, Manoranjan Dash, Poon Wei Koot, Benjamin Bustos, Tobias Schreck, Vassilis Plachouras (+37 others)
2009 Encyclopedia of Database Systems  
Federated search (federated information retrieval or distributed information retrieval) is a technique for searching multiple text collections simultaneously.  ...  For each query, a subset of collections that are most likely to return relevant documents are selected. This creates the collection selection problem.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors are grateful to Jamie Callan and reviewers for their insightful comments.  ...

Federated Entity Search Using On-the-Fly Consolidation [chapter]

Daniel M. Herzig, Peter Mika, Roi Blanco, Thanh Tran
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this environment of uncooperative data sources, we study the problem of federated entity search, where redundant information about entities is reduced on-the-fly through entity consolidation performed  ...  These entities reside in different sources, which may provide only limited information about their content and are therefore called "uncooperative".  ...  Distributed document retrieval for uncooperative environments has been studied in the IR community [8, 9] .  ...

A Plugin Architecture Enabling Federated Search for Digital Libraries [chapter]

Sergey Chernov, Christian Kohlschütter, Wolfgang Nejdl
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The German Vascoda project provides this service for dozens of information sources.  ...  Currently, however, the Vascoda portal is based on a non-cooperative metasearch approach, where results from sources are merged randomly and ranking quality is sub-optimal.  ...  In general, we can divide distributed search environments into two categories: uncooperative, isolated environments (metasearch) and cooperative, integrated environments (federated search).  ...

An Overview of Aggregating Vertical Results into Web Search Results

Suhel Mustajab, Mohd. Kashif Adhami, Rashid Ali
2013 International Journal of Computer Applications  
In this paper various efforts made for selecting relevant vertical and presenting the aggregated results to the users are reviewed.  ...  Aggregating verticals into the core web results helps in achieving diversity in information search.  ...  In Federated search cooperative environment a central section or the broker has the extensive information about the contents of each collection, collection sizes and lexicon statistics whereas in uncooperative  ...

Adaptive Query-Based Sampling of Distributed Collections [chapter]

Mark Baillie, Leif Azzopardi, Fabio Crestani
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
As part of a Distributed Information Retrieval system a description of each remote information resource, archive or repository is usually stored centrally in order to facilitate resource selection.  ...  The acquisition of precise resource descriptions is therefore an important phase in Distributed Information Retrieval, as the quality of such representations will impact on selection accuracy, and ultimately  ...  source for all resource selection algorithms.  ...

Guiding Queries to Information Sources with InfoBeacons [chapter]

Brian F. Cooper
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The Internet provides a wealth of useful information in a vast number of dynamic information sources, but it is difficult to determine which sources are useful for a given query.  ...  Beacons cache responses to previous queries and adapt the cache to changes at the source. The cache is then used to select good sources for future queries.  ...  a highly dynamic information environment.  ...

, and d) How can the techniques be adapted to a distributed environment? To this end, we develop techniques for effectively searching WoD sources.  ...  Given its growth, there is a strong need for making this wealth of knowledge accessible by keyword search (the de-facto standard paradigm for accessing information online).  ...  Acknowledgements The WoD is an extension of the WWW and as such inherently distributed.  ...
