An API-based Search System for One Click Access to Information
by Dan Ionita, Niek Tax, and Djoerd Hiemstra
This paper proposes a prototype One Click access system, based on previous work in the field and the related 1CLICK-2@NTCIR10 task. The proposed solution integrates methods from previous such attempts into a three tier algorithm: query categorization, information extraction and output generation and offers suggestions on how each of these can be implemented. Finally, a thorough user-based evaluation concludes that such an information retrieval system outperforms the textual preview collected from Google search results, based on a paired sign test. Based on validation results possible suggestions on future improvements are proposed.
To be presented at the Japanese National Institute of Informatics (NII) Testbeds and Community for Information access Research (NTCIR-10) Conference at the National Center of Sciences, Tokyo, Japan on June 18-21
