Emine Yilmaz, Nick Craswell, Bhaskar Mitra, Daniel Campos
2020 arXiv   pre-print
This paper uses simulated pooling to test the fairness and reusability of test collections, showing that pooling based on traditional systems only can lead to biased evaluation of deep learning systems  ...  are mainly based on lexical similarity, they may return different types of relevant document that were not identified in the original pooling.  ...  We then analysed the reusability of test collections generated via pooling top-k results of systems of a particular type for evaluating systems that are of a different type, particularly focusing on traditional  ...
