Novelty and diversity in information retrieval evaluation

Charles L.A. Clarke, Maheedhar Kolla, Gordon V. Cormack, Olga Vechtomova, Azin Ashkan, Stefan Büttcher, Ian MacKinnon
2008 Proceedings of the 31st annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '08  
In this paper, we present a framework for evaluation that systematically rewards novelty and diversity. We develop this framework into a specific evaluation measure, based on cumulative gain.  ...  Ambiguity in queries and redundancy in retrieved documents are poorly reflected by current evaluation measures.  ...  CONCLUDING DISCUSSION Our goal is to define a workable evaluation framework for information retrieval that accounts for novelty and diversity in a sound fashion.  ...

An analysis of NP-completeness in novelty and diversity ranking

Ben Carterette
2010 Information retrieval (Boston)  
A useful ability for search engines is to be able to rank objects with novelty and diversity: the top k documents retrieved should cover possible interpretations of a query with some distribution, or should  ...  contain a diverse set of subtopics related to the user's information need, or contain nuggets of information with little redundancy.  ...  Conclusion We have argued that NP-complete evaluation and optimization can be a serious problem for retrieval systems.  ...

Preference based evaluation measures for novelty and diversity

Praveen Chandar, Ben Carterette
2013 Proceedings of the 36th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '13  
Novel and diverse document ranking is an effective strategy that involves reducing redundancy in a ranked list to maximize the amount of novel and relevant information available to users.  ...  Evaluation for novelty and diversity typically involves an assessor judging each document for relevance against a set of pre-identified subtopics, which may be disambiguations of the query, facets of an  ...  Any opinions, findings and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are the authors' and do not necessarily reflect those of the sponsor.  ...
