There are no modifications to the basic inverted file needed unless adjacency, field restrictions, and other such types of Boolean operations are desired. Relevance feedback was one of the first features to be added to the basic SMART system (Salton 1971), and is the foundation for the probabilistic indexing model (Robertson and Sparck Jones 1976). This system therefore is much more flexible and much easier to update than the basic inverted file and search process described in section 14.6. 1. 14.7.3 A Boolean System with Ranking This section will describe a simple but complete implementation of the ranking part of a retrieval system. BUCKLEY, C., and A. LEWIT. 14.5 A GUIDE TO SELECTING RANKING TECHNIQUES Association for Computing Machinery, 23(1), 76-88. There are many ways to combine Boolean searches and ranking. These situations can be accommodated by the basic ranking search system using a two-level search. maxnoise = the highest noise of any term in the collection BURKOWSKI, F. J. Information Processing and Management, 25(6), 665-76. The theory of rough sets has been applied to information retrieval (Srinivasan 1989) but similarly has not been developed far enough to be used in practice. Information Science, 15, 249-60. Amazon’s sales rank algorithm is surprisingly simple… 1. Buckley and Lewit (1985) presented an elaborate "stopping condition" for reducing the number of accumulators to be sorted without significantly affecting performance. For smaller data sets, or for environments where ease of update and flexibility are more important than query response time, the inverted file could have a structure more conducive to updating. For smaller data sets, or for environments where ease of update and flexibility are more important than query response time, the inverted file could have a structure more conducive to updating.

American Society for Information Science, 32(3), 175-86. The above illustration is a conceptual form of the necessary files; the actual form depends on the details of the search routine and on the hardware being used. Because users are often most concerned with recent records, they seldom request to search many segments. SPARCK JONES, K. 1981. "Comparing and Combining the Effectiveness of Latent Semantic Indexing and the Ordinary Vector Space Model for Information Retrieval." J. This was the method chosen for the basic search process (see Figure 14.4). RAGHAVAN, V. V., H. P. SHI, and C. T. YU. This operation would be done during the creation of the final dictionary and postings file, and this normalized frequency would be inserted in the postings file in place of the raw frequency shown. 1971. 1976. Paper presented at the Eighth International Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval, Montreal, Canada. 14.6 DATA STRUCTURES AND ALGORITHMS FOR RANKING J. 2. (For algorithms to do efficient binary searches, see Knuth [1973], and for an alternative to binary searching see section 14.7.4.) The most well known of the set-oriented models are the clustering models where a query is ranked against a hierarchically grouped set of related documents. A second time savings can be gained at the expense of some memory space. 1981. Clearly, for data sets that are relatively small it is best to use the two separate inverted files because the storage savings are not large enough to justify the additional complexity in indexing and searching. Although this seems a tedious method of handling phrases or field restrictions, it can be done in parallel with user browsing operations so that users are often unaware that a second processing step is occurring. HARMAN, D. 1986. If the IDF is greater than or equal to one third the maximum IDF of any term in the data set, then repeat steps 2, 3, and 4. Doszkocs solved the problem in his experimental front-end to MEDLINE (the CITE system) by segmenting the inverted file into 8K segments, each holding about 48,000 records, and then hashing these record addresses into the fixed block of accumulators. McGill et al. If no within-record weighting is used, then the postings records do not have to store weights. Information Storage and Retrieval, 7(5), 217-40. If it is determined that the ranking system must also handle adjacency or field restrictions, then either the index must record the additional location information (field location, word position within record, and so on) as described for Boolean inverted files, or an alternative method (see section 14.8.4) can be used that does not increase storage but increases response time when using these particular operations. It was observed by Frakes (1984) and confirmed by Harman and Candela (1990) that if query terms were automatically stemmed in a ranking system, users generally got better results. Models based on fuzzy set theory have been proposed (for a summary, see Bookstein [1985]) but have not received enough experimental implementations to be used in practice (except when combined with Boolean queries such as in the P-Norm discussed in Chapter 15). "Using Probabilistic Models of Document Retrieval Without Relevance Information." The SMART experiments cover many areas of information retrieval such as relevance feedback, clustering, and experiments with suffixing, synonyms, and phrases. 14.8.4 Use of Ranking in Two-level Search Schemes "Index Term Weighting." "From Research to Application: The CITE Natural Language Information Retrieval System," in Research and Development in Information Retrieval, eds. J. "A Review of the Use of Inverted Files for Best Match Searching in Information Retrieval Systems." Association for Computing Machinery, 24(3), 418-27. Read the entire postings file for that term into a buffer and add the term weights for each record id into the contents of the unique accumulator for the record id. It is possible to provide ranking using signature files (for details on signature files, see Chapter 4 on that subject). The search time for this method is heavily dependent on the number of retrieved records and becomes prohibitive when used on large data sets. "Surrogate Subsets: A Free Space Management Strategy for the Index of a Text Retrieval System." LUCARELLA, D. 1983. (National Bureau of Standards Miscellaneous Publication 269). 1971. These situations can be accommodated by the basic ranking search system using a two-level search. 1988. New York: Elsevier Science Publishers. As some terms have thousands of postings for large data sets, doing a separate read for each posting can be very time-consuming. Association for Computing Machinery, 7(3), 216-44. One possible solution is to normalize each attribute between the same range. (1983). Because of the predominance of Boolean retrieval systems, several attempts have been made to integrate the ranking model and the Boolean model (for a summary, see Bookstein [1985]). The only methodology for this that has received widespread testing using the standard collections is the P-Norm method allowing the use of soft Boolean operators. 109-45. 14.9 SUMMARY "Optimization of Inverted Vector Searches." Size of Data Set 1.6 Meg 50 Meg 268 Meg 806 Meg Average response time 0.28 0.58 1.1 1.6 The ranking approach to retrieval seems to be more oriented toward these end-users. 1984. This would require a different organization of the final inverted index file that contains the dictionary, but would not affect the postings lists (which would be sequentially stored for search time improvements). A query can be represented in the same manner. MCGILL, M., M. KOLL, and T. NOREAULT. Very elaborate schemes have been devised that combine Boolean with ranking, and references are made to these in section 14.8.3. Full-text indexing was used on various standard test collections, with full-text indexing also done on the queries. This chapter has presented a survey of statistical ranking models and experiments, and detailed the actual implementation of a basic ranking retrieval system. The search time for this method is heavily dependent on the number of retrieved records and becomes prohibitive when used on large data sets. freqij = the frequency of term i in document j Perry and Willett (1983) and Lucarella (1983) also described methods of reducing the number of cells involved in this final sort. N = the number of documents in the collection Examples of these types of restrictions would be requirements involving Boolean operators, proximity operators, special publication dates, specific authors, or the use of phrases instead of simple terms. YU, C. T., and G. SALTON. Assuming within-document term frequencies are to be used, several methods can be used for combining these with the IDF measure. Loading the necessary record statistics, such as record length, into memory before searching is essential to maintain any reasonable response time for this weighting option. Association for Computing Machinery, 15(1), 8-36. COOPER, W. S., and M. E. MARON. For smaller data sets, or for environments where ease of update and flexibility are more important than query response time, the inverted file could have a structure more conducive to updating. "Probabilistic Models for Automatic Indexing." In this method, a block of storage was used as a hash table to accumulate the total record weights by hashing on the record id into unique "accumulator" addresses (for more details, see Doszkocs [1982]). "Probabilistic Models for Automatic Indexing." 2. An enhancement can be made to reduce the number of records sorted (see section 14.7.5). She selected four term-weighting factors proven important in past research and tried different combinations in order to arrive at an "optimum" term-weighting scheme. "Automatic Ranked Output from Boolean Searches in SIRE." "Term-Weighting Approaches in Automatic Text Retrieval," Information Processing and Management, 24(5), 513-23. Let’s see how it looks after in practice. "Index Term Weighting." WALKER, S., and R. M. JONES. "Surrogate Subsets: A Free Space Management Strategy for the Index of a Text Retrieval System." For example, in a data set about computers, the ultra-high frequency term "computer" may be in a stoplist for Boolean systems but would not need to be considered a common word for ranking systems. The CITE system, designed as an interface to MEDLINE (Doszkocs 1982), ranked documents based solely on the IDF weighting, as no within-document frequencies were available from the MEDLINE files. 14.7.1 Handling Both Stemmed and Unstemmed Query Terms In 1982, MEDLINE had approximately 600,000 on-line records, with records being added at a rate of approximately 21,000 per month (Doszkocs 1982). For example, the first "1" indicates the presence of the word "factor," the second "1" indicates the presence of the word "information," the first "0" indicates the absence of the word "help." SPARCK JONES, K. 1979b. Bernstein and Williamson (1984) built a ranking retrieval system for a highly structured knowledge base, the Hepatitis Knowledge Base. The response time for the 806 megabyte data set assumes parallel processing of the three parts of the data set, and would be longer if the data set could not be processed in parallel. Query terms would normally use the stemmed version, but query terms marked with a "don't stem" character would be routed to the unstemmed version. 4. The basic inverted file creation and search process described in section 14.6 assumes a fairly static data set or a willingness to do frequent updates to the entire inverted file. (National Bureau of Standards Miscellaneous Publication 269). Information Science, 6, 59-66. Store a normalized frequency. 1976. 1978. The test queries are those brought in by users during testing of a prototype ranking retrieval system. Examples of these types of restrictions would be requirements involving Boolean operators, proximity operators, special publication dates, specific authors, or the use of phrases instead of simple terms. This system assigns higher ranks to documents matching greater numbers of query terms than would normally be done in the ranking schemes discussed experimentally. This was done in Croft's experimental re trieval system (Croft and Ruggles 1984). BOOKSTEIN, A., and D. R. SWANSON. Recent work on the effective use of inverted files suggests better ways of storing and searching these files (Burkowski 1990; Cutting and Pedersen 1990). MARON, M. E., and J. L. KUHNS. Note that records containing only high-frequency terms will not have any weight added to their accumulator and therefore are not sorted. There was a lack of significant difference between pairs of term-weighting measures for uncontrolled vocabulary, however, which could indicate that the difference between linear combinations of term-weighting schemes is significant but that individual pairs of term-weighting schemes are not significantly different. Read the entire postings file for that term into a buffer and add the term weights for each record id into the contents of the unique accumulator for the record id. For this, I am picking cars dataset. 1977. SALTON, G., H. WU, and C. T. YU. IBM J. This system therefore is much more flexible and much easier to update than the basic inverted file and search process described in section 14.6. Very elaborate schemes have been devised that combine Boolean with ranking, and references are made to these in section 14.8.3. Croft and Savino (1988) provide a ranking technique that combines the IDF measure with an estimated normalized within-document frequency, using simple modifications of the standard signature file technique (see the chapter on signature files). "Optimizations for Dynamic Inverted Index Maintenance." NOREAULT, T., M. KOLL, and M. MCGILL. But the major takeaways from this article should be to understand the why and what of decision makers. 1973. "Experiments in Relevance Weighting of Search Terms." "Optimizations for Dynamic Inverted Index Maintenance." Note that records containing only high-frequency terms will not have any weight added to their accumulator and therefore are not sorted. : Addison-Wesley. Paper presented at the Statistical Association Methods for Mechanized Documentation. The combination recommended for most situations by Salton and Buckley is given below (a complete set of weighting schemes is presented in their 1988 paper). IDFi = the IDF weight for term i in the entire collection (see page 373 for 14.4.1 Direct Comparison of Similarity Measures and Term-Weighting Schemes 1976. An Evaluation of Factors Affecting Document Ranking by Information Retrieval Systems. 1989. G. Salton and H. J. Schneider, pp. 1971. 2. If option 1 was used for weighting, then the full term-weight must be calculated, as the weight stored in the posting is the raw frequency of the stem in that record. This was the method chosen for the basic search process (see Figure 14.4). "Construction of Weighted Term Profiles by Measuring Frequency and Specificity in Relevant Items." 1977. Combining the within-document frequency with either the IDF or noise measure, and normalizing for document length improved results more than twice as much as using the IDF or noise alone in the Cranfield collection. 4. Using the following examples Paper presented at the Statistical Association Methods for Mechanized Documentation. There are many ways to combine Boolean searches and ranking. freqij = the frequency of term i in document j SALTON, G., and M. E. LESK. This was done in Croft's experimental re trieval system (Croft and Ruggles 1984). Two possible combinations are given below that calculate the matching strength of a query to document j, with symbol definitions the same as those previously given. Freqik = the frequency of term i in document k CROFT, W. B., and D. J. HARPER. A larger data set of 38,304 records had dictionaries on the order of 250,000 lines (250,000 unique terms, including some numerals) and an average of 88 postings per record. SPARCK JONES, K. 1979a. SPARCK JONES, K. 1972. Some time is saved by direct access to memory rather than through hashing, and as many unique postings are involved in most queries, the total time savings may be considerable. The results show significant improvement over both the IDF weighting alone and the combination weighting, with the scaling factor K playing a large part in tuning the weighting to different collections. Ranking retrieval systems have also been closely associated with clustering. It was also suggested that clustering could improve the performance of retrieval by pregrouping like documents (Jardine and van Rijsbergen 1971). J. American Society for Information Science, 25, 312-19. SPARCK JONES, K. 1981. The hybrid postings list saves the storage necessary for one copy of the record id by merging the stemmed and unstemmed weight (creating a postings element of 3 positions for stemmed terms). There are many ways to combine Boolean searches and ranking. LOCHBAUM, K. E., and L. A. STREETER. (National Bureau of Standards Miscellaneous Publication 269). Although a model of probabilistic indexing was proposed and tested by Maron and Kuhns (1960), the major probabilistic model in use today was developed by Robertson and Sparck Jones (1976). G.

SALTON, G. 1971. per query (no pruning) Examples of these types of restrictions would be requirements involving Boolean operators, proximity operators, special publication dates, specific authors, or the use of phrases instead of simple terms. Harman and Candela (1990) experimented with various pruning algorithms using this method, looking for an algorithm that not only improved response time, but did not significantly hurt retrieval results. Information Retrieval Experiment. "The Construction of a Thesaurus Automatically from a Sample of Text." This extension, however, limits the Boolean capability and increases response time when using Boolean operators. freqiq = the frequency of term i in query q maxn = the maximum frequency of any term in the collection A hybrid inverted file was devised to merge these files, saving no space in the dictionary part, but saving considerable storage over that needed to store two versions of the postings. This method is well described in Salton and Voorhees (1985) and in Chapter 15. Paper presented at the Statistical Association Methods for Mechanized Documentation. The test queries are those brought in by users during testing of a prototype ranking retrieval system. "The Construction of a Thesaurus Automatically from a Sample of Text." Average response time 0.28 0.58 1.1 1.6 This would require a different organization of the final inverted index file that contains the dictionary, but would not affect the postings lists (which would be sequentially stored for search time improvements). 1989. This necessity for ease of update also changes the postings structure, which becomes a series of linked variable length lists capable of infinite update expansion. Association for Computing Machinery, 7(3), 216-44. Note that records containing only high-frequency terms will not have any weight added to their accumulator and therefore are not sorted. 1980. For example, "human factors and/or system performance in medical databases" is difficult for end-users to express in Boolean logic because it contains many high- or medium-frequency words without any clear necessary Boolean syntax. J. 1990. It is possible to provide ranking using signature files (for details on signature files, see Chapter 4 on that subject). The above illustration is a conceptual form of the necessary files; the actual form depends on the details of the search routine and on the hardware being used. J. SALTON, G., and C. BUCKLEY. 1979. A check needs to be made after step 1 for this. A check needs to be made after step 1 for this. Whereas this would solve the problem for smaller data sets, it creates a storage problem for the large data sets. BERNSTEIN, L. M., and R. E. WILLIAMSON. 3. 1985. VAN RIJSBERGEN. Documentation, 35(1), 30-48. 1987. J. The indexing and retrieval were based on the singular value decomposition (related to factor analysis) of a term-document matrix from the entire document collection. J. This chapter has presented a survey of statistical ranking models and experiments, and detailed the actual implementation of a basic ranking retrieval system. For details on the search system associated with CITE, see section 14.7.2. "A Statistical Interpretation of Term Specificity and Its Application in Retrieval." Clearly more weight should be given to query terms matching document terms that are rare within a collection. Table 14.1:: Response Time 1988. The user may request ranked output. This extension, however, limits the Boolean capability and increases response time when using Boolean operators. Paper presented at the Second International Cranfield Conference on Mechanized Information Storage and Retrieval Systems, Cranfield, Bedford, England. "The Implementation of a Document Retrieval System," in Research and Development in Information Retrieval, eds. The various term-weighting schemes were not combined in this experiment. Table 14.1:: Response Time "Relevance Weighting of Search Terms." "Probability and Fuzzy-Set Applications to Information Retrieval," in Annual Review of Information Science and Technology, ed. Otherwise repeat steps 2, 3, and 4, but do not add weights to zero weight accumulators, that is, high-frequency (low IDF) terms are allowed to only increment the weights of already selected record ids, not select a new record. That study also suggests that the ability of a ranking system to use the smaller inverted files discussed in this chapter makes storage and efficiency of ranking techniques competitive with that of signature files. LUHN, H. P. 1957. Documentation, 27(4), 254-66. A second major set of experiments was done by Salton and Yang (1973) to further develop the term-weighting schemes. Improving Subject Retrieval in Online Catalogues, British Library Research Paper 24. 4. 2. 1977. Two different measures for the distribution of a term within a document collection were used, the IDF measure by Sparck Jones and a revised implementation of the "noise" measure (Dennis 1964; Salton and McGill 1983). 1977. 1983. SPARCK JONES, K. 1972. J. of Information Science, 6, 25-33. Information Processing and Management, 15(3), 133-44. The basic ranking search methodology described in the chapter is so fast that it is effective to use in situations requiring simple restrictions on natural language queries. The basic ranking search methodology described in the chapter is so fast that it is effective to use in situations requiring simple restrictions on natural language queries. 14.8.5 Ranking and Signature Files The time saved may be considerably less, however. Go to Chapter 15     Back to Table of Contents, Because of the predominance of Boolean retrieval systems, several attempts have been made to integrate the ranking model and the Boolean model (for a summary, see Bookstein [1985]). K should be set to low values (0.3 was used by Croft) for collections with long (35 or more terms) documents, and to higher values (0.5 or higher) for collections with short documents, reducing the role of within-document frequency. The query is parsed using the same parser that was used for the index creation, with each term then checked against the stoplist for removal of common terms. Paper presented at the Third Joint BCS and ACM symposium on Research and Development in Information Retrieval, Cambridge, England. J. HARPER, D. J. 1987. Robertson and Sparck Jones also formally derive these formulas, and show that theoretical preference is for F4. G. Salton and H. J. Schneider, pp. 1980. Query terms would normally use the stemmed version, but query terms marked with a "don't stem" character would be routed to the unstemmed version. Examples of these types of restrictions would be requirements involving Boolean operators, proximity operators, special publication dates, specific authors, or the use of phrases instead of simple terms. This section will describe a simple but complete implementation of the ranking part of a retrieval system. 1979. ), Annual Review of Information Science and Technology, ed. Documentation, 35(4), 285-95. 1978. The index shown is a straightforward inverted file, created once per major update (thus only once for a static data set), and is used to provide the necessary speed for searching. the queries would be parsed into single terms and the documents ranked as if there were no special syntax. Whereas the storage for the "accumulators" can be hashed to avoid having to hold one storage area for each data set record, this is definitely not necessary for smaller data sets, and may not be useful except for extremely large data sets such as those used in CITE (which need even more modification; see section 14.7.2). BUCKLEY, C., and A. LEWIT. J. For further details, see Chapter 11. This would require a different organization of the final inverted index file that contains the dictionary, but would not affect the postings lists (which would be sequentially stored for search time improvements). Englewood Cliffs, N.J.: Prentice Hall. G. Salton and H. J. Schneider, pp. The input query is processed similarly to a natural language query, except that the system notes the presence of special syntax denoting phrase limits or other field or proximity limitations. 1976. The following technique was developed for the prototype retrieval system described in Harman and Candela (1990) to handle this problem, but it is not thought to be an optimal method. Go to Chapter 15     Back to Table of Contents. SALTON, G., and M. E. LESK. Information Storage and Retrieval, 7(5), 217-40. Documentation, 28(1), 11-20. where 1973. Paper presented at the Statistical Association Methods for Mechanized Documentation. A very different approach based on complex intradocument structure was used in the experiments involving latent semantic indexing (Lochbaum and Streeter 1989). Information Processing and Management, 25(4), 347-61. We can modify the logic by just considering the max of mpg or other formulae itself. It would be feasible to use structures other than simple inverted files, such as the more complex structures mentioned in that chapter, as long as the elements needed for ranking are provided. 1971. Figure 14.2: Inverted file with frequency information -------------------------------------------------------- 5. Documentation, 31(4), 266-72. 1983. This was done in Croft's experimental re trieval system (Croft and Ruggles 1984). REFERENCES K should be set to low values (0.3 was used by Croft) for collections with long (35 or more terms) documents, and to higher values (0.5 or higher) for collections with short documents, reducing the role of within-document frequency. The ranking method would do well with this query. This method is well described in Salton and Voorhees (1985) and in Chapter 15. 1983. C was set much lower in tests with the UKCIS2 collection (Harper 1980) because the terms were assumed to be less accurate, and the documents were very short (consisting of titles only). Possibly the use of two separate dictionaries, both mapping to the same hybrid posting file, would improve search time without the loss of storage efficiency, but this has not been tried. This would require a different organization of the final inverted index file that contains the dictionary, but would not affect the postings lists (which would be sequentially stored for search time improvements). Therefore, only the record id has to be stored as the location for each word, creating a much smaller index than for Boolean systems (in the order of 10% to 15% of the text size). Information Storage and Retrieval, 9(11), 619-33. G. Salton and H. J. Schneider, pp. Size of Data Set 1.6 Meg 50 Meg 268 Meg 806 Meg Figure 14.5: Merged dictionary and postings file CROFT, W. B. PERRY, S. A., and P. WILLETT. 1983. 1976. The list of ranked documents is returned as before, but only documents passing the added restriction are given to the user. This method was used in the prototype built by Harman and Candela (1990) and provided a very effective way of handling phrases and other limitations without increasing indexing overhead. More details of the storage and use of these files is given in the description of the search process. The combination of the within-document frequency with the IDF weight often provides even more improvement. Two possible combinations are given below that calculate the matching strength of a query to document j, with symbol definitions the same as those previously given.
