A Feature-Centric View of Information Retrieval (The by Donald Metzler

By Donald Metzler

Commercial net se's corresponding to Google, Yahoo, and Bing are used each day by way of thousands of individuals around the globe. With their ever-growing refinement and utilization, it has develop into more and more tricky for tutorial researchers to take care of with the gathering sizes and different severe study concerns on the topic of net seek, which has created a divide among the data retrieval learn being performed inside of academia and industry.  Such huge collections pose a brand new set of demanding situations for info retrieval researchers.

In this paintings, Metzler describes powerful details retrieval types for either smaller, classical facts units, and bigger internet collections. In a shift clear of heuristic, hand-tuned rating capabilities and complicated probabilistic versions, he offers feature-based retrieval versions. The Markov random box version he info is going past the conventional but ill-suited bag of phrases assumption in methods. First, the version can simply take advantage of numerous varieties of dependencies that exist among question phrases, getting rid of the time period independence assumption that regularly accompanies bag of phrases types. moment, arbitrary textual or non-textual positive aspects can be utilized in the version. As he indicates, combining time period dependencies and arbitrary good points leads to a truly strong, strong retrieval version. additionally, he describes numerous extensions, reminiscent of an automated characteristic choice set of rules and a question enlargement framework. The ensuing version and extensions offer a versatile framework for powerful retrieval throughout a variety of initiatives and knowledge sets.

A Feature-Centric View of knowledge Retrieval offers graduate scholars, in addition to educational and business researchers within the fields of data retrieval and internet seek with a contemporary viewpoint on info retrieval modeling and net searches.

Example text

Qi+k , D}, we match documents according to #M( qi . . qi+k ). This rewards documents for preserving the order that the query terms occur in. In the unordered clique set case, we match terms using the Indri unordered window operator (#uwN ), where N defines the maximum size of the window that the terms may occur (ordered or unordered) in. For clique {qi , . . , qj , D} that contains k query terms, documents are matched according to #uwN k(qi . . qj ). Notice that we multiply the number of terms in the clique set by N .

Therefore, the goal of the task is to find topically relevant documents in response to a query. It is critical to develop highly effective ad hoc retrieval models since such models often play important roles in other retrieval tasks. For example, most QA systems use an ad hoc retrieval system to procure documents that are topically relevant to some question. The QA systems then employ various techniques to extract answers from the document retrieved (Voorhees 1999). Thus, by improving on the current state-of-the-art ad hoc retrieval models, it is possible to positively impact the effectiveness of a wide range of tasks.

3 Illustration showing how the full independence model generalizes unigram language modeling and BM25 (top), and how the sequential dependence model generalizes bigram language modeling (bottom) rankings allow us to significantly simplify the computation. That is, rank P (D|Q) = log P (D|Q) = log P (Q, D) P (Q) = log P (Q, D) − log P (Q) rank = log P (Q, D). 18) c∈D which is a simple weighted linear combination of feature functions that can be computed efficiently for reasonable graphs since the partition function ZΛ does not need to be computed.
