A ranked-output text retrieval system implements a ranking function which orders documents, placing documents estimated to be more relevant to the user's query before less relevant ones. The proposed method is to adjust system parameters to maximize the match between the system's document ordering and the user's desired ordering, given by relevance… CONTINUE READING
