The TREC 2002 Filtering Track Report

Stephen E. Robertson, Ian Soboroff
2002 Text Retrieval Conference  
In adaptive filtering, the system begins with only a topic statement and a small number of positive examples, and must learn a better profile from on-line feedback.  ...  The TREC-11 filtering track measures the ability of systems to build persistent user profiles which successfully separate relevant and non-relevant documents in an incoming stream.  ...  Acknowledgements We give our thanks to all the people who have contributed to the development of the TREC filtering track over the years, in particular David Lewis, David Hull, Karen Sparck Jones, Chris  ...

The TREC experiments and their impact on Europe

Alan F. Smeaton, Donna Harman
1997 Journal of information science  
Information retrieval (IR) research on text collections has concentrated on improving the effectiveness of the indexing and retrieval operations.  ...  In 1992 the first of a series of evaluation exercises called TREC (Text REtrieval Conference) was launched in the US and these exercises have continued annually since then.  ...  In addition to the ad hoc retrieval mode, TREC also runs in parallel, a filtering or routing mode.  ...

The Development and Evolution of TREC and DUC

Donna Harman
2002 NTCIR Conference on Evaluation of Information Access Technologies  
The Text REtrieval Conference (TREC) has been running for 11 years now, with 93 participants in the last round of evaluation.  ...  This paper chronicles the changes in TREC over that time, emphasizing the evolution in the tasks that were evaluated rather than discussing the results of the specific evaluations.  ...  Starting in TREC-4, a filtering track has worked on the binary version of the routing task, using utility functions as measures of the quality of the retrieved set.  ...

TREC 11 Experiments at CAS-ICT: Filtering and Web

Hongbo Xu, Zhifeng Yang, Bin Wang, Bin Liu, Jun Cheng, Yue Liu, Zhe Yang, Xueqi Cheng, Shuo Bai
2002 Text Retrieval Conference  
CAS-ICT took part in the TREC conference for the second time this year and we undertook two tracks of TREC-11. For filtering track, we have submitted results of all three subtasks.  ...  In batch filtering and routing, a centroid-based classifier is used with preprocessed samples. For Web track, we have submitted results of both two subtasks.  ...  We give our thanks to all the people who have contributed to this research and development, in particular Yanbo Han, Li Guo, Qun Liu, Xin Zhang, Hao Zhang, Dongbo Bu and Huaping Zhang.  ...

Further reflections on TREC

Karen Sparck Jones
2000 Information Processing & Management  
One implication is that TREC should move into a new phase targeted on key comparisons and task speci®cations designed to deliver substantive new information, in particular shifting towards situated IR  ...  The paper focuses on the ad hoc retrieval task, with discussion of other test tracks as appropriate.  ...  Acknowledgements I am grateful to Stephen Robertson and Donna Harman for their comments, and wish speci®cally to acknowledge the latter's scrupulous care in distinguishing her points as from a Referee,  ...

James Mayfield, Paul McNamee, Cash Costello, Christine D. Piatko, Amit Banerjee
2001 Text Retrieval Conference  
Conclusions This year we participated in three tracks that each presented new challenges: filtering, video, and Arabic.  ...  We investigated the use of Support Vector Machines (SVMs) for batch text classification and noticed a large sensitivity to parameter settings for these classifiers.  ...  This cluster has 200GB of dedicated, networked disk space for use in our retrieval work. Filtering Track We participated in both the routing and batch tasks for the filtering track.  ...

Experiments in Japanese text retrieval and routing using the NEAT system

Gareth J. F. Jones, Tetsuya Sakai, Masahiro Kajiura, Kazuo Sumita
1998 Proceedings of the 21st annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '98  
Results on the standard BMIR-Jl and BMIR-J2 Japanese retrieval collections indicate that term weighting transfers well to Japanese text.  ...  We also demonstrate that relevance feedback can be used effectively for query expansion in Japanese routing applications. Japanese Character Sets Japanese text contains 3 classes of character: kanji,  ...  If more than 5 terms in a row were discarded training for this query was stopped. This training procedure is similar to that used for TREC routing experiments in [22] .  ...

Evaluation of biomedical text-mining systems: Lessons learned from information retrieval

W. Hersh
2005 Briefings in Bioinformatics  
One impediment to their development is the lack of systematic and rigorous evaluation, comparable to the approaches developed for information retrieval systems.  ...  Biomedical text-mining systems have great promise for improving the efficiency and productivity of biomedical researchers. However, such systems are still not in routine use.  ...  Acknowledgments This work was supported by grant ITR-0325160 from the National Science Foundation and earlier grants from the National Library of Medicine.  ...
