Performance evaluation in content-based image retrieval: overview and proposals

Henning Müller, Wolfgang Müller, David McG. Squire, Stéphane Marchand-Maillet, Thierry Pun
2001 Pattern Recognition Letters  
Proposals for performance measures and means of developing a standard test suite for CBIR, similar to that used in IR at the annual Text REtrieval Conference TREC, are presented.  ...  The relationship between CBIR and information retrieval IR is made clear, since IR researchers have decades of experience with the evaluation problem.  ...  Such n o velties are included in TREC regularly, e.g. the interactive track in 1994. Salton 1992 gives an overview of IR system evaluation.  ...

Subword-based approaches for spoken document retrieval

Kenney Ng, Victor W. Zue
2000 Speech Communication  
This thesis explores approaches to the problem of spoken document retrieval (SDR), which is the task of automatically indexing and then retrieving relevant items from a large collection of recorded speech  ...  We then measure the ability of subword units derived from these transcriptions to perform spoken document retrieval and examine the effects of recognition errors on retrieval performance.  ...  retrieval tasks in the 1997, 1998, and 1999 Text REtreival Conferences (TREC-6, TREC-7, and TREC-8) sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) (Harman 1997; Harman 1998;  ...

A method for open-vocabulary speech-driven text retrieval

Atsushi Fujii, Katunobu Itou, Tetsuya Ishikawa
2002 Proceedings of the ACL-02 conference on Empirical methods in natural language processing - EMNLP '02  
Aiming at retrieving information with spoken queries, we fill the gap between speech recognition and text retrieval in terms of the vocabulary size.  ...  Given a spoken query, we generate a transcription and detect OOV words through speech recognition.  ...  Initiated partially by TREC-6, various methods have been proposed for "spoken document retrieval (SDR)," in which written queries are used to search speech archives for relevant information (Garofolo  ...
