From highly relevant to not relevant: examining different regions of relevance 1This paper is a revised version of the conference paper: Spink, A. and Greisdorf, H. (1997) Partial relevance judgments during interactive information retrieval: An exploratory study. Proceedings of the 60th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Information Science, November 1–6, Washington, DC, pp. 323–334. 1

Second, a regions of relevance track that examines the measurement of users' relevance judgments.  ...  Users with high knowledge and topic levels were more likely to judge items as highly relevant. Differences between users' criteria for highly, partially and non-relevant items are also identified.  ...  The authors also acknowledge the valuable comments by Tefko Saracevic of Rutgers University and the anonymous reviewers to the development of this paper.  ...

Why relevance theory is relevant for lexicography

Theo J. D. Bothma, Sven Tarp
2014 Lexicographica : Internationales Jahrbuch für Lexikographie  
AbstractThis article starts by providing a brief summary of relevance theory in information science in relation to the function theory of lexicography, explaining the different types of relevance, viz.  ...  By integrating insights from lexicography and information science, the article contributes to new ideas for both disciplines.  ...  This is followed in section 3 by a detailed discussion of examples from various e-dictionaries to illustrate the different types of relevance in some detail.  ...

Hence only an examination of the concrete case itself will decide what is really relevant. Now this at once emancipates the relevant from the control of Formal Logic.  ...  It is impossible to decide formally, a priori and in the abstract, how far . the region of relevance will extend.  ...

2021 arXiv   pre-print
The performance of k-RV is highly competitive compared to a few state-of-the-arts in terms of classification accuracy.  ...  This combination is performed in kernel space and is called k-relevance vector (k-RV). The purpose is to improve the performance of k-NN rule.  ...  So, ∆ is set to {10 −6 , 10 −5 , 10 −4 , 10 −3 , 10 −2 , 10 −1 , 1, 10}. Different ∆ gives different number of RVs. 4.  ...

When Relevance Judgement is Happening?

Marco Allegretti, Yashar Moshfeghi, Maria Hadjigeorgieva, Frank E. Pollick, Joemon M. Jose, Gabriella Pasi
2015 Proceedings of the 38th International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval - SIGIR '15  
Data reveal significant variation between relevance and non-relevance within the EEG signals from the presentation of the image to 800 milliseconds afterwards.  ...  We analyse brain signals for the first 800 milliseconds (ms) of a relevance assessment process to answer the question "when relevance is happening in the brain?"  ...  To account for the highly interactive nature of the IR task, a number of relevance feedback techniques have been introduced in the literature, which vary from explicit to implicit.  ...

The Cortical Activity of Graded Relevance

Zuzana Pinkosova, William J. McGeown, Yashar Moshfeghi
2020 Proceedings of the 43rd International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval  
Our findings show that significant differences in event-related potentials (ERPs) were observed in response to information segments processed in the context of high-relevance, low-relevance and no-relevance  ...  We believe our conclusions constitute an important step in unravelling the nature of graded relevance and knowledge of the electrophysiological modulation to each grade of relevance will help to improve  ...  ., when searchers judge a document as highly relevant, low relevant or non-relevant. ". • RQ3: "What is the nature of graded relevance from a cognitive neuroscience perspective?"  ...

Self-relevance effects and label choice: Strong variations in label-matching performance due to non-self-relevant factors

of self-relevance effects.  ...  Merely associating one's self with a stimulus may be enough to enhance performance in a label-matching paradigm (Sui, He, & Humphreys, 2012) , implying prioritized processing of self-relevant stimuli.  ...  Increased activity in these regions was also linked to greater self-relevance benefits.  ...

An algorithm to cluster documents based on relevance

Monica Desai, Amanda Spink
2005 Information Processing & Management  
The user of the system is given the task of distinguishing between documents that are relevant to different degrees.  ...  This research showed that clustering documents on the Web by regions of relevance is highly necessary and quite feasible.  ...  Access to the most highly relevant documents in a ranked list is limited by the lack of clear boundaries delineated for each region of relevance.  ...

The Philosophical Relevance of Statistics

1980 PSA Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association  
Many of the problems of statistics are not very different from those with which philosophers of science wrangle.  ...  The reason is that even with the randomization techniques of experimental design, not all of the relevant factors can be controlled (or even known), and the difference may be due not to saccharin but to  ...

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Dunn's acknowledgements from the first edition: I wish to express my thanks and deep indebtedness to a number of fellow toilers in the relevant vineyards, for information and discussion  ...  This edition is dedicated to Richard Sylvan, who died while this essay was being written. Relevance (and relevant) logic has lost one of its most original and productive proponents. J.  ...  Orthodox relevance logic differs from classical logic not just in having an additional logical connective (→) for the conditional.  ...
