Cross-language Information Retrieval [article]

Petra Galuščáková, Douglas W. Oard, Suraj Nair
2021 arXiv   pre-print
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.  ...  This chapter reviews the state of the art for cross-language information retrieval and outlines some open research questions.  ...  The views and conclusions contained herein are those of the authors and should not be interpreted as necessarily representing the official policies, either expressed or implied, of ODNI, IARPA, or the  ...

Information Retrieval with Time Series Query

Hyun Duk Kim, Danila Nikitin, ChengXiang Zhai, Malu Castellanos, Meichun Hsu
2013 Proceedings of the 2013 Conference on the Theory of Information Retrieval - ICTIR '13  
We study a novel information retrieval problem, where the query is a time series for a given time period, and the retrieval task is to find relevant documents in a text collection of the same time period  ...  To solve this problem, we propose and study multiple retrieval algorithms that use the general idea of ranking text documents based on how well their terms are correlated with the query time series.  ...  NTCIR proposed GeoTime 1 that is a geographical and timedependent event retrieval task by question queries including location and time constraints.  ...
