Incorporating terminology evolution for query translation in text retrieval with association rules

Amal C. Kaluarachchi, Aparna S. Varde, Srikanta Bedathur, Gerhard Weikum, Jing Peng, Anna Feldman
2010 Proceedings of the 19th ACM international conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '10  
For example, a query on Sri Lanka should automatically retrieve documents with its former name Ceylon. We call such concepts SITACs, i.e., Semantically Identical Temporally Altering Concepts.  ...  Hence when users pose queries pertaining to historical information over such documents, the queries need to be translated taking into account these temporal changes in order to provide accurate responses  ...  The specific issue we address is incorporating temporal terminology evolution in query translation for better information retrieval.  ...

Generating Weather Forecast Texts with Case Based Reasoning [article]

Ibrahim Adeyanju
2015 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, case based reasoning (CBR) is proposed for weather forecast text generation because similar weather conditions occur over time and should have similar forecast texts.  ...  The advantage in a CBR approach is that systems can be built in minimal time with far less human effort after initial consultation with experts.  ...  The errors associated with these observations might be minimized by incorporating knowledge about authors" of human forecast texts; however, this was not available in the dataset.  ...
