  • This paper is to be seen as describing a new theoretical framework for investigating information retrieval. For some years now, I have felt the need to describe such a framework. It is especially important if one wants to develop information retrieval beyond the mere keyword approach. In the closing pages of my earlier book on the subject I said the following: “It has never been assumed that a retrieval system should attempt to understand” the content of a document. Most Information Retrieval… CONTINUE READING
