Ranked queries over sources with Boolean query interfaces without ranking support

Vagelis Hristidis, Yuheng Hu, Panagiotis G. Ipeirotis
2010 2010 IEEE 26th International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE 2010)  
Our approach can also be applied to other settings where the ranking is monotonic on a set of factors (query keywords in IR) and the source query interface is a Boolean expression of these factors.  ...  The naive approach would be to submit a disjunctive query with all query keywords, retrieve the returned documents, and then re-rank them.  ...  Downloading and ranking them is infeasible for an interactive query system, even if the source is on the local network.  ...

Probabilistic question answering on the Web

Dragomir Radev, Weiguo Fan, Hong Qi, Harris Wu, Amardeep Grewal
2005 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
In this paper we describe some probabilistic approaches to the last three of these stages. We show how our techniques apply to a number of existing search en-answering.  ...  The process entails five steps: query modulation, document retrieval, passage extraction, phrase extraction, and answer ranking.  ...  Radev et al. 19 Document retrieval We use the offline interfaces to three of the major search engines, AlltheWeb, Northern Light, and Google.  ...

Local search: A guide for the information retrieval practitioner

Andrew MacFarlane, Andrew Tuson
2009 Information Processing & Management  
The purpose of this paper is to show how local search can be used to solve some well known tasks in Information Retrieval (IR), how previous research in the field is piecemeal, bereft of a structure and  ...  Abstract There are a number of combinatorial optimisation problems in information retrieval in which the use of local search methods are worthwhile.  ...  Acknowledgements Many thanks to Marcus Andrews for his positive feedback on the paper, and to the reviewers of an earlier draft for their constructive comments.  ...

2014 Zenodo  
The research work is going on various aspects of information retrieval systems so as to improve its efficiency and reliability.  ...  Information retrieval has become an important field of study and research under computer science due to explosive growth of information available in the form of full text, hypertext, administrative text  ...  Fig. 1 shows general IR system architecture [5] .
