On the Effectiveness of Relevance Profiling

David J. Harper, David Lee
2004 Australasian Document Computing Symposium  
In this paper, we report a series of bench experiments on relevance profiling, using an existing electronic book, and its associated book index.  ...  The book index is the source of queries and relevance judgements for the experiments.  ...  David Lee was supported by a Summer Studentship provided by The Robert Gordon University.  ...

Query-Based Document Skimming: A User-Centred Evaluation of Relevance Profiling [chapter]

David J. Harper, Ivan Koychev, Yixing Sun
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A novel simulated work task was devised, where experiment participants are asked to identify (index) relevant pages of an electronic book, given subjects from the existing book index.  ...  Moreover, indexing task effectiveness, measured by typical IR measures, demonstrated that ProfileSkim was better than FindSkim in identifying relevant pages, although not significantly so.  ...  "Keith" van Rijsbergen for permission to use the electronic version of his textbook "Information Retrieval" in our experiment.  ...

Can back-of-the-book indexes be automatically created?

Zhaohui Wu, Zhenhui Li, Prasenjit Mitra, C. Lee Giles
2013 Proceedings of the 22nd ACM international conference on Conference on information & knowledge management - CIKM '13  
Given a book, the index terms will be sequentially selected according to an indexability score encoded by the structure information residing in a book as well as a novel context-aware term informativeness  ...  By extensive experiments on books from various domains, we show our approach to be a more effective and practical than ones that used previous keyword extraction and supervised learning.  ...  index creation cannot be replaced by computers 1 .  ...

Scentindex: Conceptually Reorganizing Subject Indexes for Reading

Ed Chi, Lichan Hong, Julie Heiser, Stuart Card
2006 2006 IEEE Symposium On Visual Analytics And Technology  
In this paper, we describe a technique that presents an enhanced subject index for a book by conceptually reorganizing it to suit particular expressed user information needs.  ...  Then our system, called ScentIndex, computes what index entries are conceptually related, and reorganizes and displays these index entries on a single page.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The user study portion of this research has been funded in part by ARDA NIMD/ARIVA program MDA904-03-C-0404 to Stuart  ...
