We present a novel meta-search engine called DYNIQX for metadata based cross search in order to study the effect of metadata in collection fusion. DYNIQX exploits the availability of metadata in academic search services such as PubMed and Google Scho... Read More about A novel metadata based meta-search engine..

Dissimilarity measurement plays a crucial role in content-based image retrieval, where data objects and queries are represented as vectors in high-dimensional content feature spaces. Given the large number of dissimilarity measures that exist in many... Read More about Comparing dissimilarity measures for content-based image retrieval..

Robust query-specific pseudo feedback document selection for query expansion. (2008)
Conference Proceeding

In document retrieval using pseudo relevance feedback, after initial ranking, a fixed number of top-ranked documents are selected as feedback to build a new expansion query model. However, very little attention has been paid to an intuitive but criti... Read More about Robust query-specific pseudo feedback document selection for query expansion..
