Query Expansion & Dialog Systems


Query Expansion

Notes:

Studies on text retrieval systems have used query expansion using term clustering, thesauri, latent semantic indexing, and other techniques. Query expansion may also include synset (synonym ring), stemming, and normalizationPowerAqua is a multi-ontology tool that may be used for query expansion. Lemur (Lemur Project) is another tool that may be used for query expansion.
