This paper proposes two IR approaches; the first is IR with GA, which is a GA-based IR approach. This approach introduces modified GA operators that allow IR with GA to achieve high performance. The second IR model is IR without GA, which is based on traditional IR approach. Both enhance the precision and recall of the web search by improving the document representation where an enhanced inverted index is developed for this purpose. Moreover, these two models use the same proposed evaluation…

The effects of fitness functions on genetic programming-based ranking discovery forWeb search

This article reports the experience in contrasting different fitness function designs on GP-based learning using a very large Web corpus and indicates that the design of fitness functions is instrumental in performance improvement.

Improving Web Retrieval Precision Based on Semantic Relationships and Proximity of Query Keywords

This work has developed a method to improve the precison of Web retrieval based on the semantic relationships between and proximity of keywords for two-keyword queries and implemented a system that re-ranks Web search results based on three measures: first-appearance term distance, minimum term Distance, and local appearance density.

Genetic Mining of HTML Structures for Effective Web-Document Retrieval

A genetic algorithm is described that learns the importance factors of HTML tags which are used to re-rank the documents retrieved by standard weighting schemes, which tends to move relevant documents to upper ranks, which is especially important in interactive Web-information retrieval environments.

Effective information retrieval using genetic algorithms based matching functions adaptation

This work looks at the possibility of applying GAs to adapt various matching functions in order to lead to a better retrieval performance than that obtained by using a single matching function.

GeniMiner: Web Mining with a Genetic-Based Algorithm

A genetic search strategy for a search engine which obtains pages which are significantly better than those found by standard search engines for complex queries and could be generalized to other optimization techniques like parallel genetic algorithms.

Web-Document Retrieval by Genetic Learning of Importance Factors for HTML Tags

This paper proposes a Web-document retrieval method using the characteristics of HTML tags, which uses a genetic algorithm for learning the importance weights and a modi ed similarity measure which uses the tag information.

A new study on using HTML structures to improve retrieval

Results are presented on a methodology of using the structures and hyperlinks of HTML documents to improve the effectiveness of retrieving HTML documents and a genetic algorithm is implemented to determine a "best so far" class importance factor combination.
