Concept Expansion Using Web Tables

Chi Wang, Kaushik Chakrabarti, Yeye He, Kris Ganjam, Zhimin Chen, Philip A. Bernstein
2015 Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '15  
They suffer from input ambiguity and semantic drift, or are not viable options for ad-hoc tail concepts. In this paper, we propose to leverage the millions of tables on the web for this problem.  ...  Experiments with real-life concepts show that our proposed solution is significantly more effective than applying state-of-the-art set expansion or holistic ranking techniques.  ...  This is the same WTS that powers web table search in Excel PowerQuery [3] . We use concepts in Probase [32] as the testbed for expansion.  ...

Collective Evolutionary Concept Distance Based Query Expansion for Effective Web Document Retrieval [chapter]

Clement H. C. Leung, Yuanxi Li, Alfredo Milani, Valentina Franzoni
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Two key tasks for query expansion in web document retrieval are to find the expansion candidates, as the closest concepts in web document domain, and to rank the expanded queries properly.  ...  The basic idea is to measure the distance between candidate concepts using the PMING distance, a collaborative semantic proximity measure, i.e. a measure which can be computed by using statistical results  ...  Table 1 shows an example of the comparison between our web document search query expansion system and Bing Web document search engine query expansion, as well as user ranked similarity of the concepts  ...

Effective query formulation with multiple information sources

Michael Bendersky, Donald Metzler, W. Bruce Croft
2012 Proceedings of the fifth ACM international conference on Web search and data mining - WSDM '12  
Most standard information retrieval models use a single source of information (e.g., the retrieval corpus) for query formulation tasks such as term and phrase weighting and query expansion.  ...  The proposed query formulations are especially advantageous for large scale web corpora, where they also reduce the number of terms required for effective query expansion, and improve the diversity of  ...  Note that Equation 5 uses the same concept expansion weighting scheme used by Latent Concept Expansion [29] .  ...

Improving the estimation of relevance models using large external corpora

Fernando Diaz, Donald Metzler
2006 Proceedings of the 29th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '06  
Our results show that using a high quality corpus that is comparable to the evaluation corpus can be as, if not more, effective than using the web.  ...  We refer to this process as external expansion.  ...  Instead, using a high quality (high concept density) corpus that is comparable to the evaluation corpus can be as, if not more, effective than using the web.  ...

Parameterized concept weighting in verbose queries

Michael Bendersky, Donald Metzler, W. Bruce Croft
2011 Proceedings of the 34th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in Information - SIGIR '11  
In addition, our model significantly reduces the number of latent concepts used for query expansion compared to the nonparameterized pseudo-relevance feedback based models.  ...  In our model, the weight of each query concept is determined using a parameterized combination of diverse importance features.  ...  Number of Expansion Concepts In Table 5 , we have limited ourselves to the efficient setting of using solely the top ten ET-concepts for query expansion.  ...

Spoken Document Retrieval by Contents Complement and Keyword Expansion Using Subordinate Concept for NTCIR-SpokenDoc

Noboru Kanedera
2013 NTCIR Conference on Evaluation of Information Access Technologies  
The keyword expansion using the subordinate concept and dictionary improved the mean average precision (MAP) from 0.320 to 0.324 for the lecture retrieval task.  ...  For the passage retrieval task, all of contents complement, keyword expansion, and subword were used. The subword was effective because a retrieving keyword was not contained in target in many cases.  ...  The expansion by using the subordinate concept was superior to those by using the broader concept.  ...
