Utilizing phrase based semantic information for term dependency

Utilizing phrase based semantic information for term dependency is a 2008 conference paper written in English by Yang X., Fan D., Bin W. and published in ACM SIGIR 2008 - 31st Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval, Proceedings.

[edit] Abstract

Previous work on term dependency has not taken into account semantic information underlying query phrases. In this work, we study the impact of utilizing phrase based concepts for term dependency. We use Wikipedia to separate important and less important term dependencies, and treat them accordingly as features in a linear feature-based retrieval model. We compare our method with a Markov Random Field (MRF) model on four TREC document collections. Our experimental results show that utilizing phrase based concepts improves the retrieval effectiveness of term dependency, and reduces the size of the feature set to large extent.
