Information storage and retrieval : scientific report no. ISR-18 to the National Science Foundation and to the National Library of Medicine : reports on analysis, dictionary construction, user feedback, clustering, and on-line retrieval by Cornell University( Book )

36 editions published between 1961 and 1970 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some experimental procedures for the identification of information content, using word frequency counting techniques are described. An attempt is made in particular to determine those areas in a natural language text which contain more than an average amount of new information. The use of tree structures for the representation of relations between terms included in classification systems, and between words in the natural language is discussed. Procedures are also suggested for the automatic identification of structural relations, and for the use of trees to perform the matching process. Some problems connected with the use of syntactic analysis for the identification of document content, and various strategies which appear useful for the processing of structured information are discussed. Methods are described for the efficient representation of tree structures in computer storage. Programs are also exhibited to perform a variety of information retrieval operations. (Author)
Proposals for a dynamic library by Gerard Salton( Book )

9 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current library environment is first examined, and an attempt is made to explain why the standard approaches to the library problem have been less productive than had been anticipated. A new design is then introduced for modern library operations based on a two-fold strategy: on the input side, the widest possible utilization should be made of cooperative and shared operations, whereas dynamic, user-controlled procedures should be used for the subsequent internal processes. The dynamic environment applies in particular to the maintenance of the indexing vocabulary, the organization of the stored information files, the performance of search and retrieval operations, and the control of the library collection necessitated by document growth and retirement. Some experimental results are included. (Author)

Information storage and retrieval reports on text analysis, dynamic indexing, feedback searches, dictionary construction and file organization by Gerard Salton( Book )

6 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present report is the twenty-first in a series describing research in information storage and retrieval conducted by the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University. The report covering work carried out by the smart project for approximately two years (summer 1970 to summer 1972) is separated into five parts: automatic content analysis (Sections I to v), dynamic document processing (Sections vi and vii), interactive feedback procedures (Sections viii to x), automatic dictionary construction (Sections xi to xiv), and clustered file organization (Sections xv to xvii). This scientific report contains new experimental results dealing with a comparison between automatic and manual indexing methods (Sections I and ii), proposals for dynamic collection control and automatic book retirement (Sections vi and vii), evaluation results for interactive feedback searches (Section viii), experiments relating to the automatic construction and maintenance of dictionaries and thesauruses used for language normalization (Sections xi to xiv), and new automatic document clustering methods (Sections xvi and xvii).

Information storage and retrieval : reports on indexing theory, content analysis, feedback searching and dynamic document space by Gerard Salton( Book )

6 editions published in 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flexible text matching for information retrieval by Gerard Salton( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This leads to the automatic introduction of links between related texts, and to the retrieval of text excerpts in response to available user queries. Evaluation results are given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the text matching approach."
User-system interaction in automatic information retrieval by Gerard Salton( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Information retrieval activities are now routinely conducted on-line under the control of search intermediaries or end users. Examples are presented of advanced aids that permit the user to control the search process and obtain improved retrieval output."
A simple syntactic approach for the generation of indexing phrases by Gerard Salton( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "A syntactic approach is described for generating indexing phrases usable for the content identification of natural-language texts. The phrase generation method is based on a simple language analysis system that determines the syntactic function of individual text words with a high degree of accuracy, and chooses of indexing phrases based on weights assigned to the phrase components. The proportion of phrases that appear to be acceptable for content identification ranges from 96 to 98 percent."
Automatische Textanalyse by Gerard Salton( Book )

4 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historical note : the past thirty years in information retrieval by Gerard Salton( Book )

4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The documentation literature of the nineteen fifties is reviewed briefly, and some early text processing endeavors are discussed. Various predictions made in 1960 by Mooers about the creative role of computers in information retrieval are then considered, and an attempt is made to explain why some of the more exciting predictions have not been fulfilled. Conclusions are drawn concerning the limits of computer power in text retrieval applications
An evaluation of text matching systems for text excerpts of varying scope by Gerard Salton( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The evaluation shows that when the global text similarity between distinct text paragraphs is high, while at the same time local similarities also exist for particular text sentences included in these paragraphs, the presumption is that the paragraphs cover related subject matter. One concludes that text matching systems may prove useful for text linking and information retrieval."
A comparison of book indexing methods by Gerard Salton( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Several book indexing methods are introduced based in part on statistical and in part on syntactic analysis methods to process the text of documents. These indexing methods are used to construct global indexes for two book chapters covering the areas of text compression and text encryption, respectively. An attempt is made to evaluate the adequacy of the several indexing products."
