Finding relevant passages using noun-noun compounds (poster session)

Eduard Hoenkamp, Rob de Groot
2000 Proceedings of the 23rd annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '00  
Yet, evidence that phrases would be more effective for information retrieval is inconclusive.  ...  In an experiment, a variety of meaningful NNCs were used to isolate relevant passages in a large and varied corpus.  ...  For each query in this set, a boolean proximity matching iso- For coherence matching to occur, a passage must contain one of the following; TREC-3: Experience with conceptual relations in information  ...

2008 Information Processing & Management  
Since TREC-3, the conference has extended its mandate to recognize the importance of the user in information-seeking.  ...  Since the days of the Cranfield experiments some 40 years ago, the issue of evaluating retrieval systems has been considered highly important by the Information Retrieval (IR) community [2] .  ...  Since TREC-3, the conference has extended its mandate to recognize the importance of the user in information-seeking.  ...

Automatic feedback using past queries

Larry Fitzpatrick, Mei Dent
1997 Proceedings of the 20th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '97  
Automatic past-query feedback actually improved top document precision in this experiment.  ...  Automatic feedback of documents identified from similar past queries was compared with standard top-document feedback and with no feedback.  ...  The weight for each position was empirically derived from the relevance ranked result lists of 50 TREC-3 ad hoc queries against the TREC-3 data collection.  ...

Modeling and solving term mismatch for full-text retrieval

Le Zhao
2012 SIGIR Forum  
The term mismatch problem is a long standing problem in information retrieval.  ...  Jamie has given me the opportunity to work on a large number of tasks related to my interest in core retrieval modeling.  ...  Test term coverage seems to correlate with retrieval performance. With more test term coverage (training on TREC 3-5 or TREC 3-7) retrieval performance is much closer to the 2-pass method.  ...

Data fusion according to the principle of polyrepresentation

Birger Larsen, Peter Ingwersen, Berit Lund
2009 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Data fusion improves retrieval performance over their constituent IR models only if the models all are quite conceptually/algorithmically dissimilar and equally and well performing, in that order of importance  ...  This principle is based on cognitive IR perspective (Ingwersen & Järvelin, 2005) and implies that each retrieval model is regarded as a representation of a unique interpretation of information retrieval  ...  Acknowledgment The authors thank Jaana Kekäläinen as well as one reviewer for their valuable comments, and the Nordic Research School in Library and Information Science (NORSLIS) for its travel and mobility  ...

The impact of text browsing on text retrieval performance

Richard C. Bodner, Mark H. Chignell, Nipon Charoenkitkarn, Gene Golovchinsky, Richard W. Kopak
2001 Information Processing & Management  
A major outcome from our experiments at TREC and with the TREC data, is that hypertext interfaces to information retrieval (IR) tasks tend to increase recall.  ...  In an experiment where a traditional (type-in) query interface was contrasted with a condition where queries were marked up on the text, the improvement in recall due to viewing more text was more pronounced  ...  (ITRC) to the second author and by the Communications and Information Technology of Ontario (CITO).  ...

"A term is known by the company it keeps": On Selecting a Good Expansion Set in Pseudo-Relevance Feedback [chapter]

Raghavendra Udupa, Abhijit Bhole, Pushpak Bhattacharyya
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
It is well known that pseudo-relevance feedback (PRF) improves the retrieval performance of Information Retrieval (IR) systems in general.  ...  We demonstrate on several test collections that expansion terms can be partitioned into two sets and the best of the two sets gives substantial improvements in retrieval performance over model-based feedback  ...  Introduction Pseudo-relevance feedback (PRF) is a well-known method for query expansion in Information Retrieval (IR) [1] .  ...
