A linguistically driven framework for query expansion via grammatical constituent highlighting and role-based concept weighting

Bhawani Selvaretnam, Mohammed Belkhatir
2016 Information Processing & Management  
We demonstrate improvements in retrieval effectiveness in terms of increased mean average precision (MAP) garnered by the proposed linguistic-based query expansion framework through experimentation on  ...  Lastly, a robust weighting scheme that duly emphasizes the importance of query constituents based on their linguistic role within the expanded query is presented.  ...  We then extract potential expansion concepts through a proximity-based statistical query expansion method that capitalizes on grammatically linked base pairs of query concepts.  ...

Under the Tipster contracts in phases I through III, GE group has set out to explore this potential through development and evaluation of new text processing techniques.  ...  Where can we get the right queries? In today's information retrieval, query expansion usually is typically limited to adding, deleting or re-weighting of terms.  ...  In routing, where queries are extensively tuned through training, having multiple word forms allows, in theory at least, finer~grained adjustments.  ...

Semantic Multimedia Retrieval using Lexical Query Expansion and Model-Based Reranking

2006 2006 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo  
Text search is performed via queries of words or fully qualified sentences, and results are returned in the form of ranked video clips.  ...  Our approach involves a query expansion stage, in which query terms are compared to the visual concepts for which we independently build classifier models.  ...  This allows us to compute more general semantic relatedness scores between pairs of words or phrases, which are better suited for query expansion purposes.  ...
