3 IntroductionTraditional information retrieval systems are particularly susceptible to all the problems posed by the richness of natural language.In particular multitude of ways in which the same concepts can be described.Overall context of the user input and the document is ignored.Traditional TF IDF Ranker ignores the relatedness of concepts. Searches for the exact word match.Introduction of semantic analyzer will improve the performance.
4 Introduction (cont..)Aim of the project is to use traditional TF IDF ranker along with semantic analyzer to retrieve the documents. And to compare the performance of the new system with the traditional tf idf ranker.
5 Introduction (cont..) This project uses, Text Retrieval Conference (TREC) data set named Confusion track for validation .Wordnet lexical database.NET framework (wordnet .net)

10 Background Tf-Idf ranker: Tf-idf ranker is used as a weighting factor in information retrieval and text mining.Terms that appear often in a document should get high weights.The more often a document contains a term, the more likely that the document is about the term. It is captures using Term frequency (TF).Terms that appear in many documents should get a low weight, which is captured using Inverse Document Frequency (IDF).The weight of a term in a document is calculated using below formula ,Wi,j=TFi,j * log (N/DFi)
11 Semantic similarity between sentences: Semantic similarity between sentences is calculated using semantic information and the word order information.This project has used an implementation which calculates the semantic relatedness between two set of strings.The implementation uses Wordnet lexical database, to calculate the semantic relatedness.The score lies between 0 and 1. 0 representing least similarity score. 1being highest.
12 Wordnet:Wordnet is the product of a research project at Princeton University .Information in Wordnet is organized around logical groupings called synsets.Each synset consists of a list of synonymous word forms and semantic pointers that describe relationships between the current synset and other synsets.In Wordnet, each part of speech words (nouns/verbs...) are organized into taxonomies where each node is a set of synonyms (synset) represented in one sense.
13 Wordnet (cont..)If a word has more than one sense, it will appear in multiple synsets at various locations in the taxonomy.Wordnet defines relations between synsets and relations between word senses. A relation between synsets is a semantic relation, and a relation between word senses is a lexical relation.
14 Wordnet (cont..) For example, The shortest path between male and female in Fig. 1 is male-person-female, the minimum path length is 2.The minimum path length between female and teacher is 5.

17 Details of our approach(cont) Step3 : Retrieve the documents Sort all the documents according to the weights. Pick top Q documents for further processing. Q is chosen such as the weight of each document crosses a particular threshold d1. Improved TF-IDF Ranker Step1: We choose top S from the step3 of previous method. Here we use another threshold d2(d2<d1) to get the set of docs for further processing. Step2: Extract the keywords (Words which have high TF and low DF) from each document.DocDFWeightW1TF1DF1We1W2TF2DF2We2W3TF3DF3We3:WnTFnDFnWen

19 Details of our approach(cont..) Step 3: For each document, calculate the semantic similarity score between its keyword set and the input query. Step 4: Sort the docs w.r.t to score. Eliminate the docs with score less than a specified threshold (b=0.5). Step 5: Display the docs.

26 ConclusionThis project has improvised traditional TF-IDF ranker by introducing Semantic analyzer.Successfully showed that, using semantic analyzer has good precision and recall values.Next, it used a dataset from Text Retrieval Conference Data (TREC) to validate the project.One limitation of Tf-Idf Ranker is, terms that occur in query input text but that cannot be found in documents gets zero scores.
