On Using Fewer Topics in Information Retrieval Evaluations
Found in: Proceedings of the 2013 Conference on the Theory of Information Retrieval (ICTIR '13)
By Andrea Berto, Stefano Mizzaro, Stephen Robertson
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 30-37
The possibility of using fewer topics in TREC, and in TREC-like initiatives, has been studied recently, with encouraging results: even when decreasing consistently the number of topics (for example, using a topic subset of cardinality only 10, in place of ...
     
Axiometrics: An Axiomatic Approach to Information Retrieval Effectiveness Metrics
Found in: Proceedings of the 2013 Conference on the Theory of Information Retrieval (ICTIR '13)
By Luca Busin, Stefano Mizzaro
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 22-29
The evaluation of retrieval effectiveness has played and is playing a central role in Information Retrieval (IR). A specific issue is that there are literally dozens (most likely more than one hundred) IR effectiveness metrics, and counting. In this paper ...
     
A few good topics: Experiments in topic set reduction for retrieval evaluation
Found in: ACM Transactions on Information Systems (TOIS)
By John Guiver, Stefano Mizzaro, Stephen Robertson
Issue Date:November 2009
pp. 1-26
We consider the issue of evaluating information retrieval systems on the basis of a limited number of topics. In contrast to statistically-based work on sample sizes, we hypothesize that some topics or topic sets are better than others at predicting true s...
     
Relevance criteria for e-commerce: a crowdsourcing-based experimental analysis
Found in: Proceedings of the 32nd international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval (SIGIR '09)
By Omar Alonso, Stefano Mizzaro
Issue Date:July 2009
pp. 435-435
We discuss the concept of relevance criteria in the context of e-Commerce search. A vast body of research literature describes the beyond-topical criteria used to determine the relevance of the document to the need. We argue that in an e-Commerce scenario ...
     
QuWi: quality control in Wikipedia
Found in: Proceedings of the 3rd workshop on Information credibility on the web (WICOW '09)
By Alberto Cusinato, Francesco Di Salvatore, Stefano Mizzaro, Vincenzo Della Mea
Issue Date:April 2009
pp. 66-66
We propose and evaluate QuWi (Quality in Wikipedia), a framework for quality control in Wikipedia. We build upon a previous proposal by Mizzaro [11], who proposed a method for substituting and/or complementing peer review in scholarly publishing. Since art...
     
Collaborative annotation for context-aware retrieval
Found in: Proceedings of the WSDM '09 Workshop on Exploiting Semantic Annotations in Information Retrieval (ESAIR '09)
By Elena Nazzi, Luca Vassena, Stefano Mizzaro
Issue Date:February 2009
pp. 2
We discuss how collaborative annotations can be exploited to simplify and improve the management of context and resources in the context-aware retrieval field. We apply this approach to our Context Aware Browser, a general purpose solution to Web content p...
     
Retrieval of context-aware applications on mobile devices: how to evaluate?
Found in: Proceedings of the second international symposium on Information interaction in context (IIiX '08)
By Elena Nazzi, Luca Vassena, Stefano Mizzaro
Issue Date:October 2008
pp. N/A
This paper discusses the issue of evaluation of context-aware retrieval applications. We begin by describing MoBe, a specific architecture that allows automatic download and execution of context-aware applications on mobile devices. In MoBe, the most relev...
     
Hits hits TREC: exploring IR evaluation results with network analysis
Found in: Proceedings of the 30th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval (SIGIR '07)
By Stefano Mizzaro, Stephen Robertson
Issue Date:July 2007
pp. 479-486
We propose a novel method of analysing data gathered fromTREC or similar information retrieval evaluation experiments. We define two normalized versions of average precision, that we use to construct a weighted bipartite graph of TREC systems and topics. W...
     
MUIA 2006: third international workshop on mobile and ubiquitous information access
Found in: Proceedings of the 8th conference on Human-computer interaction with mobile devices and services (MobileHCI '06)
By Fabio Crestani, Matt Jones, Stefano Mizzaro
Issue Date:September 2006
pp. 299-300
The recent trend towards pervasive computing and information technology becoming omnipresent and entering all aspects of modern living, means that we are moving away from the traditional interaction paradigm between human and technology being that of the d...
     
Evaluating user interfaces to information retrieval systems: a case study on user support
Found in: Proceedings of the 19th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval (SIGIR '96)
By Carlo Tasso, Giorgio Brajnik, Stefano Mizzaro
Issue Date:August 1996
pp. 128-136
The TIPSTER collection is unusual because of both its size and detail. In particular, it describes a set of information needs, as opposed to traditional queries. These detailed representations of information need are an opportunity for research on differen...
