    • Advanced Feedback Methods in Information Retrieval 

      Salton, Gerard; Fox, Edward A.; Voorhees, Ellen M. (Cornell University, 1983-08)
      Automatic feedback methods may be used in on-line information retrieval to generate improved query statements based on information contained in previously retrieved documents. In this study automatic relevance feedback ...
    • Automatic Query Formulations in Information Retrieval 

      Salton, Gerard; Buckley, Chris; Fox, Edward A. (Cornell University, 1982-10)
      Modern information retrieval systems are designed to supply relevant information in response to requests received from the user population. In most retrieval environments the search requests consist of keywords, or index ...
    • Boolean Query Formulation with Relevance Feedback 

      Salton, Gerard; Fox, Edward A.; Buckley, Chris; Voorhees, Ellen M. (Cornell University, 1983-01)
      The well-known relevance feedback process uses information extracted from previously retrieved relevant documents to generate improved search formulations for subsequent search iterations. Methods are outlined in this ...
    • Characterization of Two New Experimental Collections in Computer and Information Science Containing Textual and Bibliographic Concepts 

      Fox, Edward A. (Cornell University, 1983-09)
      Two new collections are described which are particularly useful for investigating the interaction between textual and bibliographic data in the automatic indexing and retrieval of documents. An extension to the vector ...
    • A Comparison of Two Methods for Boolean Query Relevance Feedback 

      Salton, Gerard; Fox, Edward A.; Voorhees, Ellen M. (Cornell University, 1983-07)
      The relevance feedback process uses information derived from an initially retrieved set of documents to improve subsequent search formulations and retrieval output. In a Boolean query environment this implies that new ...
    • Extended Boolean Information Retrieval 

      Salton, Gerard; Fox, Edward A.; Wu, Harry (Cornell University, 1982-08)
      In conventional information retrieval Boolean combinations of index terms are used to formulate the users' information requests. While any document is in principle retrievable by a Boolean query, the amount of output ...
    • Some Considerations for Implementing the SMART Information Retrieval System Under UNIX 

      Fox, Edward A. (Cornell University, 1983-09)
      Since the early 1960's the SMART project has tested out new ideas in information science aimed at fully automatic document retrieval. Beginning in 1980 development of an enhanced and generalized version of SMART has ...
