STUDY AND TEST OF A METHODOLOGY FOR LABORATORY EVALUATION OF MESSAGE RETRIEVAL SYSTEMS. INTERIM REPORT.
GIULIANO, VINCENT E.; JONES, PAUL E.
THE MAIN OBJECTIVES OF THE ANALYSES INCLUDE--(1) A RESEARCH STUDY OF TECHNIQUES FOR THE EVALUATION OF ASSOCIATIVE AND COORDINATE MESSAGE RETRIEVAL METHODS. (2) THE PREPARATION AND ANALYSIS OF MACHINE-READABLE TEST CORPORA SUITABLE FOR EXPERIMENTS WITH ASSOCIATIVE MESSAGE RETRIEVAL METHODS. THESE CORPORA CONSIST OF APPROXIMATELY 10,000 MESSAGES AND 1,000 INDEX TERMS EACH, ONE IS MANUALLY INDEXED, THE OTHER IS AUTOMATICALLY INDEXED. (3) EXPERIMENTAL APPLICATION OF THE EVALUATION TECHNIQUES TO THE TEST CORPORA WITH THE AIM OF ACHIEVING A COMPARISON BETWEEN CONVENTIONAL AND ASSOCIATIVE RETRIEVAL METHODS. (4) INVESTIGATION OF THE POSSIBILITY OF EXTENDING THE ASSOCIATIVE RETRIEVAL METHODS TO APPLY TO VERY LARGE DATA BASES IN CONJUNCTION WITH REAL-TIME PROCESSING MODES.
