CRC - Experiment and Evaluation in Information Retrieval Models

Organization: CRC
Publication Date: 7 August 2017
Page Count: 303

Experiment and Evaluation in Information Retrieval Models explores different algorithms for the application of evolutionary computation to the field of information retrieval (IR). As well as examining existing approaches to resolving some of the problems in this field, results obtained by researchers are critically evaluated in order to give readers a clear view of the topic.

In addition, this book covers Algorithmic Solutions to the Problems in Advanced IR Concepts, including Feature Selection for Document Ranking, web page classification and recommendation, Facet Generation for Document Retrieval, Duplication Detection and seeker satisfaction in question answering community Portals.

Written with students and researchers in the field on information retrieval in mind, this book is also a useful tool for researchers in the natural and social sciences interested in the latest developments in the fast-moving subject area.

Key features:
