GeoTime Retrieval through Passage-based Learning to Rank

Xiaolin Wang, Hai Zhao, Bao-Liang Lu
2011 NTCIR Conference on Evaluation of Information Access Technologies  
In this paper we propose a Passage-Based Learning to Rank (PGLR) method to address this task.  ...  The NTCIR-9 GeoTime task is to retrieve documents to answer such questions as when and where certain events happened.  ...  We propose a Passage-based GeoTime Learning to Rank method (PGLR) to address this task.  ...

Experiments with Geo-Temporal Expressions Filtering and Query Expansion at Document and Phrase Context Resolution

Jorge Machado, José Luis Borbinha, Bruno Martins
2010 NTCIR Conference on Evaluation of Information Access Technologies  
We describe an evaluation experiment on GeoTemporal Document Retrieval created for the GeoTime evaluation task of NTCIR 2010.  ...  We learned that the sentence level is not a very good approach (but we got clues that probably the paragraph context resolution could improve the results) and the geographic and temporal expressions base  ...  for the GeoTime English Task.  ...

Cross-language Information Retrieval [article]

Petra Galuščáková, Douglas W. Oard, Suraj Nair
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Two key assumptions shape the usual view of ranked retrieval: (1) that the searcher can choose words for their query that might appear in the documents that they wish to see, and (2) that ranking retrieved  ...  When the documents to be searched are in a language not known by the searcher, neither assumption is true. In such cases, Cross-Language Information Retrieval (CLIR) is needed.  ...  Learning transla- tional and knowledge-based similarities from relevance rankings for cross- language retrieval.  ...

Interaction Design for Complex Cognitive Activities with Visual Representations: A Pattern-Based Approach

Kamran Sedig, Paul Parsons
2013 AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction  
Meaning must be assigned to it (Stonier, 1990) . For instance, electromagnetic waves travelling through space have no meaning until they are interpreted in a contextual setting.  ...  He is interested in the design of computer-based tools that help people perform information-intensive complex cognitive activities, such as sense making, decision making, data analysis, and learning.  ...  We would also like to express our gratitude to the reviewers of this paper for their constructive and helpful comments.  ...

Temporal integration of loudness as a function of level

Mary Florentine, So/ren Buus, Torben Poulsen
1996 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
A method has been developed based on coupled normal modes which allows us to estimate pulse responses quickly.  ...  Results are displayed as plots of acoustic travel time versus geotime for various source-receiver separations (up to 8 Mm), and various center frequencies and bandwidths.  ...  This ratio is only 20 (between 0.5 and 10 cm 2) for the "compact" versus "diffuse" axis (from/a/to/i/).  ...
