Evaluation of an expert system for searching in full text

S. Gauch
1990 Proceedings of the 13th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '90  
The expert system automatically reformulates queries, using an online thesaurus as the source of domain knowledge, and a knowIedge base of domain-independent search tactics.  ...  The following conclusions were reached: 1) The expert system significantly reduced the number of queries necessary to find relevant passages compared with the user searching alone or with the thesaurus  ...  IR-NLI II [Brajnik et al, 19883 incorporates user modelling into a domain-independent bibliographic retrieval expert system.  ...
