On the Separation of Logical and Physical Ranking Models for Text Retrieval Applications

Jimmy Lin, Xueguang Ma, Joel Mackenzie, Antonio Mallia
2021 Biennial Conference on Design of Experimental Search & Information Retrieval Systems  
Viewed in database terms, this captures a tight coupling between the "logical" aspects of ranking (i.e., term weighting) and the "physical" aspects of ranking (query evaluation).  ...  We argue that explicitly decoupling these two aspects offers a framework for thinking about the relationship between sparse retrieval techniques and the rapidly growing literature on dense retrieval techniques  ...  Acknowledgements We'd like to thank Arjen de Vries for helpful comments on an earlier draft of this piece.  ...

The Multi-model DBMS Architecture and XML Information Retrieval [chapter]

Arjen P. de Vries, Johan A. List, Henk Ernst Blok
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Since long, computer science has distinguished between information retrieval and data retrieval, where information retrieval entails the problem of ranking textual documents on their content (with the  ...  semi-structured documents instead of plain text, with usage scenarios that require the combination of 'conventional' ranking with other query constraints; based on the structure of text documents, on  ...  Another advantage of the separation of concerns in the Multi-Model DBMS architecture is that it allows IR researchers to concentrate on retrieval models and reduce the effort of implementation involved  ...

A Proposed Conceptual Framework for a Representational Approach to Information Retrieval [article]

Jimmy Lin
2021 arXiv   pre-print
I propose a representational approach that breaks the core text retrieval problem into a logical scoring model and a physical retrieval model.  ...  The physical retrieval model defines how a system produces the top-k scoring documents from an arbitrarily large corpus with respect to a query.  ...  Acknowledgements This research was supported in part by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada.  ...

Challenging Ubiquitous Inverted Files

Arjen P. de Vries
2000 DELOS Workshops / Conferences  
We propose to base the development of retrieval systems on 'the database approach': mapping high-level declarative specifications of the retrieval process into efficient query plans.  ...  Stand-alone ranking systems based on highly optimized inverted file structures are generally considered 'the' solution for building search engines.  ...  Acknowledgements Annita Wilschut inspired this research with her work on Moa and GIS. Djoerd Hiemstra has been very supportive and helpful with IR experiments.  ...

An Attribute-based Model for Semantic Retrieval

Hany Azzam, Thomas Roelleke
2010 Lernen, Wissen, Daten, Analysen  
The framework facilitates the transformation of "term-only" retrieval models into "semantic-aware" retrieval models that consist of semantic propositions, such as relationships and classification of objects  ...  The modelling approach represents both semantic and textual data in one unifying framework, referred to as the probabilistic object-relational content modelling framework.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank Jinyoung Kim of the University of Massachusetts Amherst for providing us with the collection and the queries.  ...

Dependencies: Formalising Semantic Catenae for Information Retrieval [article]

Christina Lioma
2017 arXiv   pre-print
A prerequisite for processing text semantics, common to the above examples, is having some computational representation of text as an abstract object.  ...  This dissertation contributes a series of such tools, diverse in their mathematical formulation, but common in their application to model semantic inferences when machines process text.  ...  State of the art benchmark datasets are used for both text reordering and retrieval (500GB in total), and effectiveness (accuracy, mean reciprocal rank, expected reciprocal rank) is measured against state  ...

SIGIR 2005 Doctoral Consortium

David J. Harper
2005 Proceedings of the 28th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '05  
The framework is able to support a wide range of structured IR queries, transparent instantiations of different retrieval models, and different physical implementations.  ...  It is based on so-called score region algebra (SRA) that can express the following four essential ranked retrieval aspects for structured IR: term and element selection, element relevance score computation  ...  The application of the idea of text regions to XML documents is straightforward.  ...

Preliminary experiments using subjective logic for the polyrepresentation of information needs

Christina Lioma, Birger Larsen, Peter Ingwersen
2012 Proceedings of the 4th Information Interaction in Context Symposium on - IIIX '12  
We focus on the polyrepresentation of different types of context relating to user information needs (i.e. work task, user background knowledge, ideal answer) and show that the subjective logic model can  ...  No experimental evidence or practical application has so far validated this model. We extend the work of Lioma et al. (2010) [15], by providing a practical application and analysis of the model.  ...  We do not weight separately any of the query fields; we simply concatenate all text into one query.  ...
