UNT 2005 TREC QA Participation: Using Lemur as IR Search Engine

UNT 2005 TREC QA Participation: Using Lemur as IR Search Engine

Date: 2005
Creator: Chen, Jiangping; Yu, Ping & Ge, He
Description: This paper reports the authors' TREC 2005 QA participation. The authors' QA system Eagle QA developed last year was expanded and modified for this year's QA experiments. Particularly, the authors used Lemur 4.1 as the Information Retrieval (IR) Engine this year to find documents that may contain answers for the test questions from the document collection. The authors' result shows Lemur did a reasonable job on finding relevant documents. But certainly there is room for further improvement.

UNT at ImageCLEF 2010: CLIR for Wikipedia Images

UNT at ImageCLEF 2010: CLIR for Wikipedia Images

Date: September 2010
Creator: Ruiz, Miguel E.; Chen, Jiangping; Pasupathy, Karthikeyan; Chin, Pok & Knudson, Ryan
Description: This paper presents the results of the team of the University of North Texas in the Wikipedia image retrieval track of Image-CLEF-2010. The authors' approach is based on performing translation of the French and German image captions to English and using of Language Models for generating their runs. The authors also explore the use of complex queries by asking two users to manually build queries based on the original topics distributed. The authors' results indicate that the approach of translating the image captions is feasible and yields results that are quite competitive with other teams that participated in the same track.

UNT at TREC 2004: Question Answering Combining Multiple Evidences

UNT at TREC 2004: Question Answering Combining Multiple Evidences

Date: 2004
Creator: Chen, Jiangping; Ge, He; Wu, Yan & Jiang, Shikun
Description: This paper discusses Question Answering (QA) combining multiple evidences. QA aims at identifying answers to users' natural language questions. A QA system can release the users from digesting large amounts of text in order to locate particular facts or numbers. The research has drawn great attention from several disciplines such as information retrieval, information extraction, natural language processing, and artificial intelligence. TREC QA track has provided comparable QA system evaluation on a set of test questions since 1999. The degree of difficulty of the test questions has increased substantially in recent two years, which push the research toward applying more sophisticated strategies and better understanding of English texts. This article discusses this research.

User Searches in IMLS DCC Collection Registry: Transaction Log Analysis

User Searches in IMLS DCC Collection Registry: Transaction Log Analysis

Date: 2006
Creator: Zavalina, Oksana
Description: This technical report discusses user searches in IMLS DCC collection registry. Subject access to collections has been in the focus of attention of LIS field for decades. A number of catalog use studies have been conducted in attempts to better understand its role and the problems user faces while searching for the information on a particular topic, with transaction log analysis being one of the methods widely employed by these studies. However, issues of subject access in federated collections, where the "unit of analysis" is a collection rather than an item search, have not yet been investigated. This paper reports an attempt of such an analysis performed on the IMLS Digital Collection Registry transaction log dataset.

Utilization of Technology-Enhanced Delphi Techniques

Utilization of Technology-Enhanced Delphi Techniques

Date: 2002
Creator: Andrews, Charles G. & Allen, Jeff M.
Description: This article discusses the Delphi consensus-building technique. Also discussed are the Delphi Technique's history, the process, and some advantages and disadvantages found in the literature. Finally, this article examines a technology-enhanced version of the process. The study provides researchers interested in using the Delphi Technique in conjunction with technology with a process that is easily duplicated. Nine university professors/instructors agreed to address one question: "What information should the student be aware of when working on a team project?" The question is unimportant. However, the results of the Delphi consensus regarding this single question are provided, along with a framework for conducting future Delphi studies, using computer technology. Cost savings and time reduction are important advantages to be considered when conducting a Technology-Enhanced Delphi study using computer technology.

Virtual Libraries: A Service-Based Approach for Virtual Libraries

Virtual Libraries: A Service-Based Approach for Virtual Libraries

Date: 2002
Creator: Moen, William E. & Murray, Kathleen R.
Description: This article discusses virtual libraries. Much of the expectation surrounding the emerging 21st century library is based on the opportunities presented by enhanced access to information resources through the use of networked information technologies. Existing libraries are a product of an intersection and an interaction of people, resources, and procedures. Libraries are defined by a range of services developed for internal and external consumption. The provision of services to patrons and other users, including library staff, is built upon the collective personnel, information, and technological resources that constitute the library.
