Revisiting N-Gram Based Models for Retrieval in Degraded Large Collections [chapter]

Javier Parapar, Ana Freire, Álvaro Barreiro
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper presents a n-gram based distributed model for retrieval on degraded text large collections.  ...  The traditional retrieval models based on term matching are not effective in collections of degraded documents (output of OCR or ASR systems for instance).  ...  We compared the presented approach, inspired in previous n-gram based retrieval methods, against a traditional term based vector space model.  ...

Report on Thomson Legal and Regulatory Experiments at CLEF-2004 [chapter]

Isabelle Moulinier, Ken Williams
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
While the fertility-based approach picks good terms, it does not help improve bilingual retrieval. Pseudo-relevance feedback, on the other hand, resulted in improved average precision.  ...  We compared two translation models for query translation, and captured compound translations through fertility probabilities.  ...  Our stopword experiments confirmed well-established results about stopword removal and retrieval effectiveness.  ...

Graph-based concept weighting for medical information retrieval

Bevan Koopman, Guido Zuccon, Peter Bruza, Laurianne Sitbon, Michael Lawley
2012 Proceedings of the Seventeenth Australasian Document Computing Symposium on - ADCS '12  
This paper presents a graph-based method to weight medical concepts in documents for the purposes of information retrieval.  ...  Medical concepts are extracted from free-text documents using a state-of-the-art technique that maps n-grams to concepts from the SNOMED CT medical ontology.  ...  In contrast, the term-based graph does not encode these n-grams: instead, the two terms are split as separate vertices, both receiving a lower weight.  ...

Neural Networks Revisited for Proper Name Retrieval from Diachronic Documents [chapter]

Irina Illina, Dominique Fohr
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Developing high-quality transcription systems for very large vocabulary corpora is a challenging task. Proper names are usually key to understanding the information contained in a document.  ...  In this paper, we extend the previously proposed neural networks for word embedding models: word vector representation proposed by Mikolov is enriched by an additional non-linear transformation.  ...  In order to incorporate the new PNs in the language model, we re-estimated it for each augmented vocabulary using the large text corpus described in Section 3.3.  ...

Duplicate-Search-Based Image Annotation Using Web-Scale Data

Xin-Jing Wang, Lei Zhang, Wei-Ying Ma
2012 Proceedings of the IEEE  
Annotation of images on the Web, based on label propagation over similar images and social information, is discussed in this paper; a system called Arista is used to demonstrate scalability.  ...  ABSTRACT | Easy photo-taking and photo-sharing today make image an increasingly important type of media in people's everyday life, which arouses a growing demand for a practical Manuscript  ...  Zhang for their work on the Arista system.  ...

The data deluge: Challenges and opportunities of unlimited data in statistical signal processing

Michael L. Seltzer, Lei Zhang
2009 2009 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing  
We then describe recent work in spoken language processing and image processing that has begun to address these challenges in order to tackle large-scale classification tasks.  ...  When viewed through the lens of pattern classification, this content can be seen as a virtually unlimited supply of training data for various statistical modeling and labeling tasks such as speech recognition  ...  Both of these used the web to estimate n-gram counts for a LM for the news domain.  ...

Towards Debiasing Fact Verification Models

2019 Proceedings of the 2019 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing and the 9th International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing (EMNLP-IJCNLP)  
In this paper, we investigate the cause of this phenomenon, identifying strong cues for predicting labels solely based on the claim, without considering any evidence.  ...  This work is a step towards a more sound evaluation of reasoning capabilities in fact verification models. 1  ...  Acknowledgments We thank the MIT NLP group and the reviewers for their helpful discussion and comments. This work is supported by DSO grant DSOCL18002.  ...

Remedies against the Vocabulary Gap in Information Retrieval [article]

Christophe Van Gysel
2017 arXiv   pre-print
More specifically, we propose (1) methods to formulate an effective query from complex textual structures and (2) latent vector space models that circumvent the vocabulary gap in information retrieval.  ...  While term-based approaches are intuitive and effective in practice, they are based on the hypothesis that documents that exactly contain the query terms are highly relevant regardless of query semantics  ...  This is infeasible during model training when the collection of retrievable objects becomes too large, as is the case for product search.  ...

2017 Proceedings of the 40th International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval - SIGIR '17  
Complex machine learning models are now an integral part of modern, large-scale retrieval systems.  ...  However, collection size growth continues to outpace advances in eciency improvements in the learning models which achieve the highest eectiveness.  ...  Table 5 shows the complete feature breakdown based on the two main categories of features used. e rst set of features are a large collection of pre-retrieval features commonly used for predicting query  ...
