IIT at TREC-8: Improving Baseline Precision

M. Catherine McCabe, David O. Holmes, Kenneth L. Alford, Abdur Chowdhury, David A. Grossman, Ophir Frieder
1999 Text Retrieval Conference  
This year, we focussed on improving our baseline and then introduced some experimental improvements.  ...  In TREC-8, we participated in the automatic and manual tracks for category A as well as the small web track.  ...  Acknowledgments We wish to thank the director and staff at the Major Shared Resource Center, U.S.  ...

The TREC-2001 Cross-Language Information Retrieval Track: Searching Arabic Using English, French or Arabic Queries

Fredric C. Gey, Douglas W. Oard
2001 Text Retrieval Conference  
On average, forty percent of the relevant documents discovered by a participating team were found by no other team, a higher rate than normally observed at TREC.  ...  Acknowledgments We are grateful to Ellen Voorhees for coordinating this track at NIST and for her extensive assistance with our preliminary analysis, to the participating research teams for their advice  ...  Stems generated from the same root typically have related meanings, so indexing roots might improve recall (possibly at the expense of precision, though).  ...

Collection statistics for fast duplicate document detection

Abdur Chowdhury, Ophir Frieder, David Grossman, Mary Catherine McCabe
2002 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
We compared our solution to the state of the art and found that in addition to improved accuracy of detection, our approach executed in roughly one-fifth the time.  ...  Seventeen inconsistencies were detected in TREC 8 and 65 inconsistencies were noted for the web track of TREC 8.  ...  Similar examples were found for TREC 7 and 8 and the web track of TREC 8.  ...

Overview of the TREC 2006

Ellen M. Voorhees
2006 Text Retrieval Conference  
A similar investigation of the TREC-8 ad hoc collection showed that every automatic run that had a mean average precision score of at least 0.1 had a percentage difference of less than 1 % between the  ...  At varying cut-off levels, recall and precision tend to be inversely related since retrieving more documents will usually increase recall while degrading precision and vice versa.  ...
