Paper Title:
Reasoning about Similarity Queries in Text Retrieval Tasks


  • Xiaohui Yu(York University)
  • Yang Liu(York University)

In many text retrieval tasks, it is highly desirable to obtain a ``similarity profile" of the document collection for a given query. We propose sampling-based techniques to address this need, using calibration techniques to improve the accuracy. Experimental results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed approaches.
