Relevance Data for Language Models Using Maximum Likelihood.
Bodoff, David; Wu, Bin; Wong, K. Y. Michael
Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, v54 n11 p1050-61 Sep 2003
Presents a preliminary empirical test of a maximum likelihood approach to using relevance data for training information retrieval parameters. Discusses similarities to language models; the unification of document-oriented and query-oriented views; tests on data sets; algorithms and scalability; and the effectiveness of maximum likelihood estimators (MLE) for optimizing document or query representation.
