Related entity finding by unified probabilistic models

Yi Fang, Luo Si
2013 World wide web (Bussum)  
A comprehensive set of experiments were conducted on the TREC Entity Track testbeds from 2009 to 2011 with careful design to show the contributions of individual components.  ...  The results demonstrate that both the type matching component and the entity prior modeling component can effectively boost the entity retrieval performance.  ...  In the experiments, all these parameters were tuned and determined on independent training data which are different from the test data.  ...

Effective focused retrieval by exploiting query context and document structure

Rianne Kaptein
2012 SIGIR Forum  
Topical context can be elicited implicitly by using a user profile built on previous information seeking behaviour, previously issued queries, selection and reading time of documents, et cetera.  ...  These are collected, verified, and de-duplicated by INEX before being distributed back to the participants. Participants run their own retrieval systems, and return their results to INEX.  ...
