Semantic Query Expansion for Arabic Information Retrieval

Semantic Query Expansion for Arabic Information Retrieval

We collected all the words in WordNet, and translated them to Arabic using Google Translate. For each English word, Google Translate provides different Arabic translations for the English word each corresponds to a different sense, each sense has a list of different possible English synonyms. Using this useful information we were able to extend WordNet Synset entries into a bilingual Arabic-English dictionary that maps a set of Arabic synonyms to its equivalent set of English synonyms. The basic idea is that, two sets of English synonyms (each allegedly belongs to a different sense) can be fused together into one sense if the number of overlapping words between the two sets is two or more. Fusing two English sets together will fuse also their Arabic translations into one set, thus forming a list of Arabic synonyms matched to a list of English synonyms. Table 5 shows a sample of Google Translate for the word “tough”. We can fuse the first and the fourth sense together because they have two words in common namely “strong” and “robust”. The same applies to the second and the third senses with “strict” and “tough” in common.

concepts which related to each other in class hierarchies. It concerns to determine the relevant concepts in an ontology, and semantic relations between of them. An ontology represents the formal way of knowledge representation and semantic relation between concepts. It uses to capture the knowledge in a particular domain and reduce the ambiguity of concepts to make the machine able to understand and interpret them. Ontology-based knowledge extraction (OBKE) depends on formal ontology to find the semantic relations among concepts and entities. It may be considered a guide to extract information and knowledge from unstructured texts.

The Impact of Online Indexing in Improving Arabic Information Retrieval Systems

The Impact of Online Indexing in Improving Arabic Information Retrieval Systems

The linguistic approaches consist of a morphological and syntactic analysis of the document based on the grammatical rules and relationships between the different textual units. The methods of this approach are widely used in Arabic natural language processing due to the reliability of syntactic and semantic recognition algorithms. Saadi et al. [1] proposed knowledge extraction systems, based on a deep linguistic analysis and using a domain ontology to extract the semantic content, they have achieved promising results, but reveal other problems in need of careful investigation.

on light stemming and stems lexicon. The automatic construction of this lexicon is based on the Arabic dictionary LISSANO AL ARAB ( برعنا ناسن ) and Levenshtein similarity measure. This stems extraction approach showed a respectable relevance rate despite some failure cases due particularly to weak roots. We hope that our stemming approach helps to create a reduced and accurate Arabic index involving an increase of results relevance of our Arabic Information Retrieval System ARABIRS.

The search engine shows only a query input interface and the result pages after handling the query. The search engines which deal with the query are quite complex, which are based on traditional and contemporary methods of information retrieval. The ranking methods discussed above are all doing ranking according to the relevance between results page and query. The method should be such that which tries to capture the user’s real query intent. The primary purpose howsoever remains the same .i.e. to return the optimal results. But before returning the results, it should be able to analyze the query clearly. The simple keywords can’t express user’s real query intent. In order to analyze the query, some metadata information is added along with the query. The metadata information is added by expanding the query.i.e., keyword+tags instead of the keywords only.

REVIEW ON ONTOLOGY BASED TECHNIQUES IN INFORMATION RETRIEVAL SYSTEMS

REVIEW ON ONTOLOGY BASED TECHNIQUES IN INFORMATION RETRIEVAL SYSTEMS

Abstract: Information Retrieval [IR] is a method used for searching documents, searching information contained by documents, and for searching metadata about documents, and also for relational databases searching and the World Wide Web (WWW). There stands similarity in the usage of the terms such as data retrieval and document retrieval as well as information retrieval and text retrieval, but each of these has its own body of literature survey, philosophy, and technologies. The ontologies have been established for local information sharing and are widely used as a means for conceptually structuring domains of interest. The aim of semantic web research is to permit the enormous range of web- accessible information and services to be more efficiently exploited by either humans or automated tools. To assist this process, RDF and OWL have been established as standard formats for the sharing and integration of data and knowledge. Different methodologies are there for information retrieval based on ontology from which review of some methodologies is presented in this paper.

A Full Text Retrieval System in a Digital Library Environment

A Full Text Retrieval System in a Digital Library Environment

The volume of information being created, generated and stored is huge. Without adequate know- ledge of Information Retrieval (IR) methods, the retrieval process for information would be cum- bersome and frustrating. Studies have further revealed that IR methods are essential in informa- tion centres (for example, Digital Library environment) for storage and retrieval of information. Therefore, with more than one billion people accessing the Internet, and millions of queries being issued on a daily basis, modern Web search engines are facing a problem of daunting scale. The main problem associated with the existing search engines is how to avoid irrelevant information retrieval and to retrieve the relevant ones. In this study, the existing system of library retrieval was studied. Problems associated with them were analyzed in order to address this problem. The concept of existing information retrieval models was studied, and the knowledge gained was used to design a digital library information retrieval system. It was successfully implemented using a real life data. The need for a continuous evaluation of the IR methods for effective and efficient full text retrieval system was recommended.

A method based on sequential access patterns for information retrieval

A method based on sequential access patterns for information retrieval

This paper has presented the web recommendation system for information retrieval using sequential web access patterns. The proposed model mines the constant sequential web access patterns through the adoption of CS- mine. Further, the constructed pattern-tree stores the mined patterns that are useful for the subsequent matching and producing web links for online recommendations. Ultimately, the performance analysis has shown the superior performance of the proposed model.

The Study of Information Retrieval

The Study of Information Retrieval

The three broad categories of web search queries can be grouped into (i) informational, (ii) navigational and (iii) transactional. Informational queries seek general information on a broad topic. There is typically not a single web page that contains all the information sought; indeed, users with informational queries typically try to assimilate information from multiple web pages. Navigational queries seek the website or home page of a single entity that the user has in mind, say Spicejet airlines. In such cases, the user's expectation is that the very first search result should be the home page of Spicejet. The user is not interested in documents containing the term Spicejet; for such a user, the best measure of user satisfaction is precision at 1.

On Sanskrit and Information Retrieval

On Sanskrit and Information Retrieval

The most pressing goal, for the time being, is to elaborate an architecture that strikes a good balance between the system’s precision, its recall, and its efficiency in terms of time and space. In particular, the interaction of the strategies we described above deserves special consideration, because their compounding effect can easily lead to excessively complicated queries. It might be necessary to adopt several distinct retrieval strategies depending on the query and the user’s expectations. To help alleviate the issue, it is desirable to give more control to the user over the query process, so that he can choose whether a quick but possibly incomplete or inaccurate answer is preferable to a more accurate, but slower one. Accordingly, it is necessary to elaborate an evaluation methodology to test the time and space efficiency of the system.

Survey Paper on Information Retrieval Algorithms and Personalized Information Retrieval Concept

Survey Paper on Information Retrieval Algorithms and Personalized Information Retrieval Concept

This is the basic model of information retrieval. Boolean model deals with using logical functions in the query to retrieve the required data. This is an early approach for data retrieval and is used as first model in finding information in the collection of data. This model is based on set theory and Boolean algebra; together they form a model for determining the data. Documents that are being searched in the database are sets of terms while Queries, given by the user are Boolean expressions on terms [1]. The terms are combined using AND and OR operators, where AND is intersection or logical product of any term and OR is union or logical sum of any terms. Combining terms with the OR operator will define a document set that is bigger than or equal to the document sets of any of the single terms. So, the query social OR political will produce the set of

Interactive information retrieval

Interactive information retrieval

Our electronic information world is becoming increasingly complex with more sources of information, types of information, and ways to access information than ever before. Anyone who searches for informa- tion is required to make more decisions about searching and expected to engage with an increased number and variety of search systems. Even a standard desktop personal computer comes equipped with numerous search tools (desktop search, e-mail search, browsers to help search the Internet, embedded search tools for specific file formats such as PDF [portable document format] or Word, and specific document types such as help manuals). A standard day, if one is electronically enabled, may involve many searches across different search systems accessing differ- ent electronic resources for different purposes. The Internet, in particu- lar, has revolutionized the ability to search, especially in the commercial arena where we have the choice of using different search systems to search essentially the same electronic resources but with different inter- active functionalities. The search decisions a human is required to make before encountering any information involve not only how to search this resource using this system but also how to choose a system or resource to search in the first place. These decisions are complicated because skills learned using one type of system do not always transfer simply to searching a different type of system (Cool, Park, Belkin, Koenemann, & Ng, 1996). Neither does information literacy in one domain of expertise necessarily help when searching on unfamiliar topics.

Comparing Information Retrieval Effectiveness of Different Metadata Generation Methods

Comparing Information Retrieval Effectiveness of Different Metadata Generation Methods

In order to compare the effectiveness of information retrieval for the different types of metadata, a set of artificial queries was generated by an NIEHS librarian. The librarian was given the URLs for the 34 web pages as well as the categorical breakdown of the pages into the six categories mentioned earlier, e.g. organizational, research information, etc. Based on this information, she generated 20 queries in the form of questions that the NIEHS library could likely receive from the educated lay person or member of the public, regarding the type of research conducted at NIEHS. The list of questions used in this experiment is included in Appendix B. From the list of 20 questions, 10 were randomly selected for this experiment. The selected queries were then converted into SQL statements that could be executed against the Microsoft Access database. To convert the questions to queries, the distinguishing keywords of the

Four participants gave positive feedback about the system. Two of them stronly agreed to use this system in the future, while other two agree with that. One participant mentioned that by increasingly interactively, the system should have more power for information retrieval. For the statement that the system surpised me, two participants agreed with it. Two participants expressed that they have seen topic maps being used in IR systems before so this visulized IR system might not be a surpise for them. All participants agreed that the papers they found satisfied their information need and they could conduct the search easily, which means participants were able to locate relevant information in a short time. Those participants all showed high agreement on the statement that the system helped them recall things that they had not thought about. It was found, after participants navigated to a specific token, they would check all tokens that have relationship to it very carefully. Some participants were surprise to find helpful tokens associated to their information needs. All participants were confident that they made right decision in navigating and searching tokens. It reflects that the system did assist in reducing participants’ uncertainty during the search process.

Different Facets of Text Based Automated Question Answering System

Different Facets of Text Based Automated Question Answering System

Liu et al.,[43]has developed an IQA which extracts answer from FAQ knowledge base which is extracted from community question answering web portals. The syntactic, semantic and pragmatic features between question and candidate answers and context information are used to construct models by ranking learning method to extract the answers. The system has utilized user’s feedback to the retrieved answer as a naive method for interaction. Konstantinova et al., [44] has developed an IQA that helps customer in process of deciding better product based on different features. The system establishes a dialogue with the customer when their needs are not clearly defined. For this purpose acorpus-based method is proposed for weighting the importance of product features depending on how likely they are to be of interest fora user. For further enhancements, asentiment classification system is also employed to distinguish between features mentioned in positive and negative contexts. Schwarzer et al., [45] presented an information retrieval-based question answering (QA) system for the large German e-government domain. The system successfully handles ambiguous questions by combining retrieval methods, task trees and a rule-based approach.

Information Retrieval System Assigning Context to Documents by Relevance Feedback

Information Retrieval System Assigning Context to Documents by Relevance Feedback

IR lacks improved information retrieval mechanism to extract relevant information for user query. Existing Information retrieval systems are not user profile guided systems, hence the search engine result, huge irrelevant information, which leads to low precision rate. For e.g. when a user enters a search query Cloud burst. Search results in information about Cloud burst issues in Cloud computing, Cloud bursting technology, cloud security and the desired information about the Cloud burst a natural calamity is not retrieved. Hence user is getting inadequate information, even with existing recommender systems which requires human intervention in the search process. The given solution can be suitably used for Semantic LOR. With the dearth of relevant information extraction system, Information retrieval is day by day becoming a cumbersome process. Thousands of documents are returned every time for a particular query search.

PROBLEMS AND RETRIEVAL OF INFORMATION IN DIGITAL ENVIRONMENT

PROBLEMS AND RETRIEVAL OF INFORMATION IN DIGITAL ENVIRONMENT

No doubt users play important role in retrieval of information in their learning system. Users retrieval mechanism needs better aptitude for learning devices and efficiency to handle for better use of information .It is known that the retrieval information mechanism of users are more dependent on creativity, concentration and skill of users mind to retrieve the desired information.In the traditional information retrieval systems ,users are more thoughtful to search , select and discuss with the professionals to generate ideas into channels of discoveries, inventions and schools of thoughts ,where as in the modern digital retrieval system, users will be more concerned with changing devices with knowledge skills and experience to search desired information to make school of thoughts ,however users are still habitual of old mechanism to retrieve any information in the learning system .The scope of earlier practices may dominate to some extent but users mind are now gradually switching into faster modern information retrieval mechanisms with the changing technological devices . The user’s minds still need to equip with changing technological devices for the thoughtful retrievals of information.

Word frequency effects in phonological retrieval in Modern Standard Arabic

Word frequency effects in phonological retrieval in Modern Standard Arabic

In addition, a more careful look at the error data reveals another interesting result. That is, the phoneme /dˁ/ caused the highest number of substitution errors (six out of fifteen).Why has this particular phoneme been involved in more errors than any other phoneme? A potential cause lies within the distribution of this phoneme. Most spoken Arabic vernaculars do not have this sound. Specifically, it is not available in the SAV that our subjects speak which is commonly referred to as Gulf Arabic. Therefore, this sound is learned only as an MSA sound. In second language learning, it is well attested that L2 phonemes not available in L1 can impair the recognition of L2 words (e.g. Aoyama, Flege, Guion, Akahane-Yamada, & Yamada, 2004; Cutler & Otake, 2004; Cutler, Weber, & Otake, 2006). The same can also lead to more speech errors in L2 word production (Gollan & Goldrick, 2012; e.g. Aljasser, Jackson, Vitevitch, & Sereno, 2018; Li, Goldrick, & Gollan, 2017).

Abstract— Secured Information Retrieval using CIDS and Map reducing in Cloud is a method for information retrieval from cloud. In which fast access provided by, distributing data on multiple databases and parallel (SQL) queries are used to retrieve data in secure way. Query will be equally distributed to multiple peers for private information retrieval process. SQL to MapReduce translators emerge to translate SQL queries to MapReduce codes and it provides good performance in cloud systems. Map reduce is a parallel programming model for cloud computing platforms. It is an effective method for processing huge amount of data on the cluster of components. A Collaborative Intrusion Detection System (CIDS) provides security for the data’s placed inside the cloud networks by preventing and detecting the attacks. Paxos Algorithm is used to maintain consistent in available data, automatic updates amongst peer nodes is maintained. Peer Node failures will updated to co-operative peers.
