The Effectiveness of Results Re-Ranking and Query Expansion in Cross-language Information Retrieval

Dong Zhou, Vincent Wade
2010 NTCIR Conference on Evaluation of Information Access Technologies  
The results obtained might provide us more insight and understanding into cross-language query expansion and document re-ranking.  ...  We combined the query expansion and initial retrieval results re-ranking techniques as main retrieval approach.  ...  Cross-language information retrieval (CLIR) focuses on research in the retrieval of documents written in languages different to the language in which the query is expressed.  ...

Ricoh at CLEF 2004 [chapter]

Yuichi Kojima
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper describes the participation of RICOH in the monolingual and cross-lingual information retrieval tasks on German Indexing and Retrieval Testdatabase (GIRT) in the Cross-Language Evaluation Forum  ...  The performance of cross-lingual information retrieval was poor and that of monolingual information retrieval was not good. We need to check our modules and procedures.  ...  On the other hand, we could not achieve the average score in cross-lingual retrieval tasks (both our experiment and official experiment).  ...

Measuring pseudo relevance feedback & CLIR

Paul Clough, Mark Sanderson
2004 Proceedings of the 27th annual international conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '04  
In this poster, we report on the effects of pseudo relevance feedback (PRF) for a cross language image retrieval task using a test collection.  ...  Because query reformulation for cross language is likely to be harder than with monolingual searching, a great deal of user dissatisfaction would be associated with this scenario.  ...  In PRF, the top n documents are assumed relevant and used in iterative retrieval cycles, e.g. for query expansion.  ...

Document Retrieval Using Entity-Based Language Models

Hadas Raviv, Oren Kurland, David Carmel
2016 Proceedings of the 39th International ACM SIGIR conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval - SIGIR '16  
We also show that the language models can be effectively used for clusterbased document retrieval and query expansion.  ...  The key principle of the language models is accounting, simultaneously, for the uncertainty inherent in the entity-markup process and the balance between using entity-based and term-based information.  ...  We thank the reviewers for their comments. This paper is based upon work supported in part by a Yahoo! faculty research and engagement award.  ...

Dublin City University at CLEF 2006: Robust Cross Language Track [chapter]

Adenike M. Lam-Adesina, Gareth J. F. Jones
2007 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Our results show that although our PRF is consistently effective for this task, the application of the current version of our new re-ranking method has little effect on the ranked output.  ...  The aim of re-ranking using the initial query is to force the retrieved assumed relevant set to mimic the initial query more closely while not removing the benefits of PRF.  ...  Pseudo-Relevance Feedback Short and imprecise queries can affect information retrieval (IR) effectiveness.  ...

Query Expansion for Cross-Language Question Re-Ranking [article]

Muhammad Mahbubur Rahman, Sorami Hisamoto, Kevin Duh
2019 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we focus on the cross-language question re-ranking shared task, which aims to find existing questions that may be written in different languages.  ...  Further, if the platform allows questions and answers in multiple languages, we are faced with the additional challenge of matching cross-lingual information.  ...  If a CQA platform supports text entry in multiple languages, this becomes a type of cross-language information retrieval (CLIR) problem.  ...

English-Marathi Cross Language Information Retrieval System

Kalyani Lokhande, Dhanashree Tayade
2017 International Journal of Advanced Research in Computer Science and Software Engineering  
Cross Language Information Retrieval (CLIR) deals with retrieval of documents in another language than the language of the requested query.  ...  The proposed system retrieves Marathi documents depending on matching terms in query. The performance of the proposed system is improved by query pre-processing and query expansion using WordNet.  ...  I acknowledge all the staff members of the department of Computer Engineering, SSBT's College of Engineering & Technology for their help and suggestions during various phases of this project work.  ...

Improving Cross Language Information Retrieval Using Corpus Based Query Suggestion Approach [chapter]

Rajendra Prasath, Sudeshna Sarkar, Philip O'Reilly
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The idea is to utilize the corpus based evidence of one language to improve the retrieval and re-ranking of news documents in the another language.  ...  In this paper, we present a cross language information retrieval approach to effectively retrieve information present in a language other than the language of the user query using the corpus driven query  ...  Then we rank the set of the derieved queries and select the top ranked queries to perform query formulation. Using the re-formulated weighted query, cross language information retrieval is performed.  ...

Sparse and Dense Approaches for the Full-rank Retrieval of Responses for Dialogues [article]

Gustavo Penha, Claudia Hauff
2022 arXiv   pre-print
The predominance of this setup in conversation response ranking has lead to a great deal of attention to building neural re-rankers, while the first-stage retrieval step has been overlooked.  ...  Ranking responses for a given dialogue context is a popular benchmark in which the setup is to re-rank the ground-truth response over a limited set of n responses, where n is typically 10.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This research has been supported by NWO projects SearchX (639.022.722) and NWO Aspasia (015.013.027).  ...
