Does word sense disambiguation improve information retrieval?

Hwee Tou Ng
2011 Proceedings of the fourth workshop on Exploiting semantic annotations in information retrieval - ESAIR '11  
Will semantic annotation of word senses improve information retrieval?  ...  A basic form of semantic annotation is to label a word in a document with its correct sense based on the context in which the word occurs, thus providing the disambiguated sense of the word.  ...  ESAIR'11, October 28, 2011, Glasgow, Scotland, UK.

An experimental study on syntactic and semantic annotations in text retrieval

George Tsatsaronis
2011 Proceedings of the fourth workshop on Exploiting semantic annotations in information retrieval - ESAIR '11  
In this work we provide an experimental study on the effect of several ambiguity types in IR, by resolving each ambiguity type separately and adding respective annotations in the indexed text.  ...  Syntactic and semantic ambiguity affect the text retrieval task as each type of ambiguity influences precision and/or recall.  ...  annotations may have to the retrieval performance.  ...

Report on the sixth workshop on exploiting semantic annotations in information retrieval (ESAIR'13)

Paul N. Bennett, Evgeniy Gabrilovich, Jaap Kamps, Jussi Karlgren
2014 SIGIR Forum  
ESAIR'13 focuses on two of the most challenging aspects to address in the coming years.  ...  Second, in addition to low level factual annotation, non-topical annotation of larger chunks of text can provide powerful cues on the expertise of the search and (un)suitability of information.  ...  We would like to thank ACM and CIKM for hosting this workshop, the CIKM workshop chairs Jianshu Weng and Esteban Zimanyi, and in particular Yi Fang for his outstanding support in the organization.  ...

Graph-Based Recommendation in Broad Folksonomies [article]

Robert Wetzker, Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Sahin Albayrak
2010
Of special interest from an information retrieval perspective are the tags that are generated in "broad folksonomies", where many users reference and tag the same objects.  ...  These communities have become an invaluable source for information retrieval, since they bundle the interests of thousand or even millions of users, magnifying the underlying domain from a user-centric  ...  Acknowledgments This dissertation would not have been possible without the constant encouragement and support of many inspiring people.  ...
