CSE 804: Information Retrieval

Objective: The aim of this course is to give an understanding about the basic architechture of a search engine. Students will learn about efficient data structures for storing and indexing unstructured and semi-structured documents. They will also learn about the algorithms for ranking and scoring retrieved documents. However, crucial tasks like online and offline evaluation of search engines will also constitute a major part of the course. 

Outline: Boolean Retrieval: Inverted Index, Processing boolean queries, extended Boolean retrieval; Term Vocabulary and Postings lists: Document delineation and character sequence decoding, Tokenization, Dropping common terms: stop words, Normalization (equivalence classing of terms), Stemming and lemmatization, skip pointers, Biword indexes, Positional indexes; Dictionaries and tolerant retrieval: Search structures for dictionaries, General wildcard queries, k-gram indexes for wildcard queries, Spelling correction; Index Construction: Blocked sort-based indexing, Single-pass in-memory indexing, Distributed indexing, Dynamic indexing; Scoring and Ranking: Parametric and zone indexes, Term frequency and weighting, The vector space model for scoring, variant tf-idf functions; Computing scores in a complete search system: Efficient scoring and ranking, Components of an information retrieval system; Evaluation in information retrieval: Evaluation of unranked retrieval sets, Evaluation of ranked retrieval results, Assessing relevance, Results snippets; Relevance feedback and query expansion: The Rocchio algorithm for relevance feedback, Relevance feedback on the web, Evaluation of relevance feedback strategies, Global methods for query reformulation; Language models for information retrieval; Enterprise Information Retrieval: Explore the capacity of Apache Lucene as a text search framework.
