Past seminars at the Faculty of Informatics

The Faculty of Informatics is pleased to announce a seminar given by Prof. Massimo Melucci


TITLE: A Novel Formalisation of Information Retrieval in Context

SPEAKER: Prof. Massimo Melucci, Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell'Informazione, Universita' di Padova, Italy

DATE: Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

PLACE: USI Università della Svizzera italiana, room SI-004, Informatics building (Via G. Buffi 13)

TIME: 16.00-17.00



The seminar will introduce a novel formalisation of context-aware

information retrieval which advances the theory of the vector space

model and of probabilistic retrieval. An experimental investigation in

the context of enhanced implicit feedback tailored for personalized

information access will also be illustrated. The results of some

experiments using rich interaction logs demonstrate the expressiveness

of the formalisation developing implicit feedback algorithms.
