Advanced Methods of Information Retrieval

Dr. Elena Demidova

Content

In this module we introduce the students to the advanced methods and algorithms of Information Retrieval for structured and semi-structured data (such as relational databases and knowledge graphs). The topics of the module include data structures, ranking methods and efficient algorithms that enable end users to effectively obtain the most relevant search results from structured, heterogeneous and distributed data sources. Furthermore, we will study the corresponding evaluation techniques as well as novel applications.
