Avinash Atreya, Charles Elkan
2011 SIGKDD Explorations  
The aim of latent semantic indexing (LSI) is to uncover the relationships between terms, hidden concepts, and documents.  ...  All proposed methods are evaluated experimentally on the four TREC collections mentioned above. The experiments show that the new variants of LSI improve upon previous LSI methods.  ...  Latent semantic indexing (LSI).  ...

Fast updating algorithms for latent semantic indexing [article]

Eugene Vecharynski, Yousef Saad
2014 arXiv   pre-print
This paper discusses a few algorithms for updating the approximate Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) in the context of information retrieval by Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) methods.  ...  Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI), introduced in [9] , is a wellestablished text mining technique that aims at finding documents in a given collection that are relevant to a user's query.  ...  In the projected space, semantically similar documents tend to be close to each other in a certain measure, which allows to compare them according to their latent semantics rather than a straightforward  ...

Latent Semantic Indexing Via a Semi-Discrete Matrix Decomposition [chapter]

Tamara G. Kolda, Dianne P. O'leary
1999 IMA Volumes in Mathematics and its Applications  
Latent Semantic Indexing represents documents by approximations and tends to cluster documents on similar topics even if their term proles are somewhat dierent.  ...  We recommend the original LSI paper [3] , a paper by Dumais reporting the eectiveness of the LSI approach on the TREC-3 dataset [4] , and a more mathematical paper by Berry, Dumais and O'Brien [1]  ...  Latent semantic indexing (LSI) is based on the assumption that exact matching of the query does not necessarily retrieve the most relevant documents.  ...

Distributed, Large-Scale Latent Semantic Analysis by Index Interpolation

Sebastiano Vigna
2008 Proceedings of the Third International ICST Conference on Scalable Information Systems  
Latent semantic analysis [12] is a well-known technique to extrapolate concepts from a set of documents; it discards noise by reducing the rank of (a variant of) the term/document matrix of a document  ...  Moreover, our approach is advantageous when the document collection is large, because the number of terms over which latent semantic analysis has to be performed is inherently limited by the size of a  ...  semantic indexing.  ...
