Predicting the Effectiveness of Naive Data Fusion on the Basis of System Characteristics.
Ng, Kwong Bor; Kantor, Paul B.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v51 n13 p1177-89 Nov 2000
With many information retrieval (IR) schemes available, researchers have begun to investigate the benefits of combining results of different IR schemes to improve performance, in the process called "data fusion." This article investigates the predictive power of two variables--similarity of efficacy and dissimilarity of outputs--in simple symmetrical data fusion. (Contains 18 references.) (AEF)
