    • 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 ...
    • Another Look at Automatic Text Retrieval Systems 

      Salton, Gerard (Cornell University, 1985-12)
      The characteristics of automatic text retrieval systems are briefly described, and the available experimental evidence comparing manual with automatic retrieval is reviewed. Several automatic text analysis and indexing ...
    • Approaches to Global Text Analysis 

      Salton, Gerard; Buckley, Chris (Cornell University, 1990-04)
      The current approaches to the analysis of natural language text are not viable for documents of unrestricted scope. A global text analysis system is proposed designed to identify homogeneous text environments in which ...
    • Approaches to Passage Retrieval in Full Text Information Systems 

      Salton, Gerard; Allan, James; Buckley, Chris (Cornell University, 1993-03)
      Large collections of full-text documents are now commonly used in automated information retrieval. When the stored document texts are long, the retrieval of complete documents may not be in the users' best interest. In ...
    • Approaches to Text Retreival for Structured Documents 

      Salton, Gerard; Buckley, Chris (Cornell University, 1990-01)
      Documents such as textbooks, dictionaries, and encyclopedias are inherently structured, in the sense that they are meant to be used selectively by skipping from section to section instead of reading sequentially from one ...
    • Automated Language Processing 

      Salton, Gerard (Cornell University, 1968-02)
      This study covers recent developments in automatic text processing, including syntactic, semantic, and statistical language analysis methods. The emphasis is on applications in the areas of machine translation, information ...
    • Automatic Assignment of Soft Boolean Operators 

      Salton, Gerard; Voorhees, Ellen M. (Cornell University, 1984-05)
      The conventional bibliographic retrieval systems are based on Boolean query formulations and inverted file implementations. Such systems provide rapid responses in answer to search queries but they are not easy to use ...
    • Automatic Content Analysis in Information Retrieval 

      Salton, Gerard (Cornell University, 1968-01)
      The content analysis problem is first introduced, and some of the standard analysis procedures used in information retrieval are reviewed. The principal content analysis methods incorporated into the automatic SMART document ...
    • Automatic Indexing Using Term Discrimination and Term Precision Measurements 

      Salton, Gerard; Wong, A.; Yu, C. T. (Cornell University, 1975-07)
      A variety of abstract automatic indexing models have been developed in recent times in an effort to produce indexing methods that are both effective and usable in practice. Among these are thee term discrimination model ...
    • Automatic Processing of Current Affairs Queries 

      Salton, Gerard (Cornell University, 1972-08)
      The SMART system is used for the analysis, search, and retrieval of news stories appearing in Time magazine. A comparison is made between the automatic text processing methods incorporated into the SMART system and a manual ...
    • 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 ...
    • Automatic Structuring and Retrieval of Large Text Files 

      Salton, Gerard; Allan, James; Buckley, Chris (Cornell University, 1992-06)
      In many operational environments, large text files must be processed covering a wide variety of different topic areas. Aids must then be provided to the user that permit collection browsing and make it possible to locate ...
    • Automatic Structuring of Text Files 

      Salton, Gerard; Buckley, Chris; Allan, James (Cornell University, 1991-10)
      In many practical information retrieval situations, it is necessary to process heterogeneous text databases that vary greatly in scope and coverage, and deal with many different subjects. In such an environment it is ...
    • Automatic Text Analysis 

      Salton, Gerard (Cornell University, 1969-06)
      Effective automatic methods are now available to replace conventional document indexing and classification.
    • Automatic Text Decomposition Using Text Segments and Text Themes 

      Salton, Gerard; Singhal, Amit; Buckley, Chris; Mitra, Mandar (Cornell University, 1995-11)
      With the widespread use of full-text information retrieval, passage-retrieval techniques are becoming increasingly popular. Larger texts can then be replaced by important text excerpts, thereby simplifying the retrieval ...
    • Automatic Text Structuring and Retrieval- Experiments in Automatic Encyclopedia Searching 

      Salton, Gerard; Buckley, Chris (Cornell University, 1991-04)
      Many conventional approaches to text analysis and information retrieval prove ineffective when large text collections must be processed in heterogeneous subject areas. An alternative text manipulation system is outlined ...
    • Automatic Text Theme Generation and the Analysis of Text Structure 

      Salton, Gerard; Singhal, Amit (Cornell University, 1994-07)
      Non-expository texts are not usually read from cover to cover. Readers are helped in such circumstances by providing selective access to text excerpts as needed. Text themes can be identified representing areas of importance ...
    • 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 ...
