What is Information Retrieval ?

• The process of actively seeking out information relevant to a topic of interest (van Rijsbergen)

          – Typically it refers to the automatic (rather than manual) retrieval of documents

                   • Information Retrieval System (IRS)

          – “Document” is the generic term for an information holder (book, chapter, article, webpage, etc)

IR in practice

• Information Retrieval is a research-driven theoretical and experimental discipline

          – The focus is on different aspects of the information–seeking process, depending on the researcher’s background or interest:

                      • Computer scientist – fast and accurate search engine

                      • Librarian – organization and indexing of information

                      • Cognitive scientist – the process in the searcher’s mind

                      • Philosopher – Is this really relevant ?

                      • …

           – Progress influenced by advances in Computational Linguistics, Information Visualization, Cognitive Psychology, HCI, …

• Experimental vs. operational systems

• Analogy to car manufacturing

 Fundamental concepts in IR

• What is information ?

• Meaning vs. form

• Data vs. Information Retrieval

• Relevance


• Relevance and other key concepts in IR were discussed in the previous class, so we won’t do it again.

                 – We’ll take a simple view: a document is relevant if it is about the searcher’s topic of interest

• We will discuss text documents, not other media

                 – Most current tools that search for images, video, or other media rely on text annotations

                 – Real content retrieval of other media (based on shape, color, texture, …) are not mature yet
