Abstract:

We report our methods and experiment results from the collaborative participation of the InfoLab group from University of Delaware and the school of Information Systems from Singapore Management University in the TREC 2009 Entity track. Our general goal is to study how we may apply language modeling approaches and natural language processing techniques to the task. Specifically, we proposed to find supporting information based on segment retrieval, to extract entities using Stanford NER tagger, and to rank entities based on a previously proposed probabilistic framework for expert finding.
