In this paper we present some new methods of ranking information retrieval systems without relevance judgement. The common ground of these methods is using a measure we called reference count. An extensive experimentation was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed methods using various different standards Information Retrieval evaluation(More)
Effective analysis of genome sequences and associated functional data requires access to many different kinds of biological information. For example, when analysing gene expression data, it may be useful to have access to the sequences upstream of the genes, or to the cellular location of their protein products. Such information is currently stored in(More)
Workflow Management Systems (WfMSs) are used to support the modeling and coordinated execution of business processes within an organization or across organizational boundaries. Although some research efforts have addressed requirements for authorization and access control for workflow systems, little attention has been paid to the requirements as they apply(More)
This paper proposes an adptive approach for data fusion of information retrieval systems, which exploits estimated performances of all component input systems without relevance judgement or training. The estimation is conducted prior to the fusion but uses the same data as fusion applies. The experiment shows that our algorithms are competitive with, and(More)
The data fusion technique has been investigated by many researchers and has been used in implementing several information retrieval systems. However, the results from data fusion vary in different situations. To find out under which condition data fusion may lead to performance improvement is an important issue. In this paper, we present an analysis of the(More)
In information retrieval, data fusion has been investigated by many researchers. Previous investigation and experimentation demonstrate that the linear combination method is an effective data fusion method for combining multiple information retrieval results. One advantage is its flexibility since different weights can be assigned to different component(More)
The aim of this research is twofold. On the one hand, high accuracy retrieval has been a concern of the information retrieval community for some time. We aim to investigate this issue via data fusion. On the other hand, correlation among component results has been proven to be harmful to data fusion, but has not been taken into account in data fusion(More)
