Test Collection-Based IR Evaluation Needs Extension toward Sessions – A Case of Extremely Short Queries [chapter]

Heikki Keskustalo, Kalervo Järvelin, Ari Pirkola, Tarun Sharma, Marianne Lykke
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In the present paper, we propose an extension to the test collection-based evaluation. We will utilize sequences of short queries based on empirically grounded but idealized session strategies.  ...  Such behavior is fundamentally different from the process modeled in the traditional test collection-based IR evaluation based on using more verbose queries and only one query per topic.  ...  Constructing simulated sessions We made use of the TREC 7-8 test collection, and real test persons to generate candidate queries and alternative search keys.  ...

Building High-Quality Datasets for Information Retrieval Evaluation at a Reduced Cost

David Otero, Daniel Valcarce, Javier Parapar, Álvaro Barreiro
2019 Proceedings (MDPI)  
With this proliferation of tasks, it becomes crucial to have a cheap way of constructing test collections to evaluate the new developments.  ...  Information Retrieval is not any more exclusively about document ranking. Continuously new tasks are proposed on this and sibling fields.  ...  The funders had no role in the design of the study; in the collection, analyses, or interpretation of data; in the writing of the manuscript, or in the decision to publish the results.  ...

Instead, we construct a model that can be trained on other document collections for which the necessary quality information is available, or can be obtained quite easily.  ...  Efficient, flexible, and scalable integration of full text information retrieval (IR) in a DBMS is not a trivial case. This holds in particular for query optimization in such a context.  ...  In the IR-field, some research has been done on the retrieval cost-effectiveness trade-off [7, 14, 191 .  ...
