The Functional Ontology of Filmic Documents

Description: This book chapter discusses the functional ontology of filmic documents. The authors examine a few phases of probing of filmic documents, and the relationship between structure and meaning. The authors have taken the liberty of sketching the earlier phases and of presenting the most recent in somewhat more detail. Considerations of the early phases, among other issues of document use, led to the functional ontology construction as a foundation for this probing and for wider concerns within the arena of messages, meanings, and uses.

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

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.
