Luis M. de Campos, Juan M. Fernandez-Luna, Juan F. Huete
2013 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper we develop a method of query expansion based on Bayesian networks.  ...  Using a learning algorithm, we construct a Bayesian network that represents some of the relationships among the terms appearing in a given document collection; this network is then used as a thesaurus  ...  Query Expansion in Information Retrieval Systems using a Bayesian Network-Based Thesaurus Luis M. de Campos, Juan M.

Query Expansion for Survey Question Retrieval in the Social Sciences [chapter]

Nadine Dulisch, Andreas Oskar Kempf, Philipp Schaer
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We describe and evaluate thesaurus- and co-occurrence-based approaches for query expansion to improve retrieval quality in digital libraries and research data archives.  ...  In a direct comparison automatically expanded queries using extracted co-occurring terms can provide better results than queries manually reformulated by a domain expert and better results than a keyword-based  ...  Jabeur et al. analyze two approaches for microblog retrieval [11] . The first approach uses a retrieval model based on Bayesian networks.  ...

Lexical paraphrasing for document retrieval and node identification

Ingrid Zukerman, Sarah George, Yingying Wen
2003 Proceedings of the second international workshop on Paraphrasing -  
Node identification -performed in the context of a Bayesian argumentation system -matches users' Natural Language sentences to nodes in a Bayesian network.  ...  Lexical paraphrases are generated using syntactic, semantic and corpus-based information. Our evaluation shows that lexical paraphrasing improves retrieval performance for both applications.  ...  Acknowledgments This research was supported in part by grants A49927212 and DP0209565 from the Australian Research Council.  ...

Clustering terms in the Bayesian network retrieval model: a new approach with two term-layers

Luis M. de Campos, Juan M. Fernández-Luna, Juan F. Huete
2004 Applied Soft Computing  
The retrieval performance of an information retrieval system usually increases when it uses the relationships among the terms contained in a given document collection.  ...  This paper presents a new retrieval model based on a Bayesian network that represents and exploits term relationships, overcoming these two drawbacks.  ...  A final example is [6] , where a thesaurus is built based on Kullback-Leibler's cross entropy in the form of 3 A more general review of the application of soft computing techniques to information retrieval  ...

IPAL at ImageClef 2007 Mixing Features, Models and Knowledge

Sheng Gao, Jean-Pierre Chevallet, Diem Thi Hoang Le, Trong-Ton Pham, Joo-Hwee Lim
2007 Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum  
We continue to use a conceptual indexing with vector space weighting, but we add this year a Bayesian network on concepts extracted from UMLS meta-thesaurus.  ...  The IPAL system is based on the mixed modality search, i.e. textual and visual modalities.  ...  These concepts extracted are then used to build up the network for our Bayesian network based retrieval framework.  ...

An Algorithm for Semantic Expansion of Queries in a Boolean Information Retrieval System

Ana Laura Lezama, Mireya Tovar, David Pinto, Darnes Vilariño
2016 Research in Computing Science  
In this paper, we propose an algorithm for query expansion of a Boolean Information Retrieval System (BIRS), in which the queries are formed by the concepts of four domain ontologies.  ...  In this case extend the original query with the synonyms of the words that compose it can help improve the accuracy of the retrieval system (RS).  ...  [10] given a document collection, the authors built a thesaurus based on a bayesian network, their method learn a poly-tree of terms.  ...

The impact of query structure and query expansion on retrieval performance

Jaana Kekäläinen, Kalervo J?rvelin
1998 Proceedings of the 21st annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '98  
The effects of query structures and query expansion (QE) on retrieval performance were tested with a best match retrieval system (INQUERY 1 ).  ...  ., queries with more elaborated search key relations). QE was based on concepts, which were first selected from a conceptual model, and then expanded by semantic relationships given in the model.  ...  Discussion and Conclusions We have tested concept based QE with different query structures in a best match retrieval system.  ...
