Explicit Semantic Ranking for Academic Search via Knowledge Graph Embedding

  title={Explicit Semantic Ranking for Academic Search via Knowledge Graph Embedding},
  author={Chenyan Xiong and Russell Power and Jamie Callan},
  journal={Proceedings of the 26th International Conference on World Wide Web},
This paper introduces Explicit Semantic Ranking (ESR), a new ranking technique that leverages knowledge graph embedding. [] Key Result Experiments demonstrate ESR's ability in improving Semantic Scholar's online production system, especially on hard queries where word-based ranking fails.

This study investigates user behavior during session search from the perspective of a knowledge graph and finds new user behavior patterns in terms of query reformulation and document clicking.

Textbook to triples: Creating knowledge graph in the form of triples from AI TextBook

An effort has been made towards developing a system that could convert the text from a given textbook into triples that can be used to visualize as a knowledge graph and use for further applications.

DegreEmbed: incorporating entity embedding into logic rule learning for knowledge graph reasoning

This paper proposes DegreEmbed, a model that combines embedding-based learning and logic rule mining for inferring on KGs that outperforms the state-of-the-art methods on real world datasets and the rules mined by the model are of high quality and interpretability.

Novel Ranking Approach using Pattern Recognition for Ontology in Semantic Search Engine

Semantic Web (SW) is the extension of WWW, which is a great technology, which helps search engines to retrieve most relevant pages, but only if the results of retrieval are extremely related to user query.

Relevance-based entity selection for ad hoc retrieval




An Empirical Study of Learning to Rank for Entity Search

These experiments on an entity search test collection based on DBpedia confirm that learning to rank methods are as powerful for ranking entities as for ranking documents, and establish a new state-of-the-art for accuracy on this benchmark dataset.

Bag-of-Entities Representation for Ranking

This paper presents a new bag-of-entities representation for document ranking, with the help of modern knowledge bases and automatic entity linking, and demonstrates that current entity linking systems can provide sufficient coverage of the general domain search task.

Entity query feature expansion using knowledge base links

A new technique, called entity query feature expansion (EQFE), which enriches the query with features from entities and their links to knowledge bases, including structured attributes and text, finds that entity-based feature expansion results in significant improvements in retrieval effectiveness over state-of-the-art text expansion approaches.

Entity Linking in Queries: Tasks and Evaluation

A set of approaches for effectively addressing two specific tasks, semantic mapping and interpretation finding, are presented and a new manually curated dataset for interpretation finding is introduced.

Latent entity space: a novel retrieval approach for entity-bearing queries

Experimental results over TREC collections show that the proposed LES approach is effective in capturing latent semantic content and can significantly improve the search accuracy of several state-of-the-art retrieval models for entity-bearing queries.

Utilizing Knowledge Bases in Text-centric Information Retrieval

This tutorial focuses on how to retrieve a set of entities for an ad-hoc query, or more broadly, assessing relevance of KB elements for the information need, how to annotate text with such elements, and how to use this information to assess the relevance of text.

Learning deep structured semantic models for web search using clickthrough data

A series of new latent semantic models with a deep structure that project queries and documents into a common low-dimensional space where the relevance of a document given a query is readily computed as the distance between them are developed.

EsdRank: Connecting Query and Documents through External Semi-Structured Data

EdisdRank treats vocabularies, terms and entities from external data, as objects connecting query and documents, as subjects of a latent listwise learning to rank algorithm, Latent-ListMLE, which models the objects as latent space between query and Documents.

Information Extraction as Link Prediction: Using Curated Citation Networks to Improve Gene Detection

This paper examines whether knowing something about which genes an author has previously written about, combined with information about previous coauthors and citations, can help to predict which new genes the author is likely to write about in the future.

Document Retrieval Using Entity-Based Language Models

We address the ad hoc document retrieval task by devising novel types of entity-based language models. The models utilize information about single terms in the query and documents as well as term
