Download e-book for iPad: Learning to Rank for Information Retrieval by Tie-Yan Liu

By Tie-Yan Liu

Due to the quick development of the internet and the problems find wanted info, effective and potent info retrieval structures became extra vital than ever, and the hunt engine has develop into a necessary software for plenty of people.

The ranker, a vital part in each seek engine, is accountable for the matching among processed queries and listed records. as a result of its imperative position, nice awareness has been paid to the examine and improvement of rating applied sciences. moreover, score can be pivotal for plenty of different info retrieval functions, equivalent to collaborative filtering, definition score, query answering, multimedia retrieval, textual content summarization, and on-line commercial. Leveraging computer studying applied sciences within the score strategy has ended in cutting edge and better score types, and finally to a totally new examine sector referred to as “learning to rank”.

Liu first supplies a entire evaluation of the main methods to studying to rank. for every method he provides the fundamental framework, with instance algorithms, and he discusses its benefits and downsides. He maintains with a few contemporary advances in studying to rank that can not be easily labeled into the 3 significant ways – those comprise relational score, query-dependent score, move score, and semisupervised score. His presentation is finished by means of numerous examples that observe those applied sciences to resolve genuine details retrieval difficulties, and by means of theoretical discussions on promises for score performance.

This publication is written for researchers and graduate scholars in either info retrieval and laptop studying. they're going to locate the following the one complete description of the state-of-the-art in a box that has pushed the hot advances in seek engine development.
