4 Problem - Motivation Eg., find documents containing “data”, “retrieval” Applications: Web law + patent offices digital libraries information filtering

5 Problem - Motivation Types of queries: boolean (‘data’ AND ‘retrieval’ AND NOT...)

6 Problem - Motivation Types of queries: boolean (‘data’ AND ‘retrieval’ AND NOT...) additional features (‘data’ ADJACENT ‘retrieval’) keyword queries (‘data’, ‘retrieval’) How to search a large collection of documents?

7 Full-text scanning Build a FSA; scan c a t

8 Full-text scanning for single term: (naive: O(N*M)) ABRACADABRAtext CAB pattern

9 Full-text scanning for single term: (naive: O(N*M)) Knuth Morris and Pratt (‘77) build a small FSA; visit every text letter once only, by carefully shifting more than one step ABRACADABRAtext CAB pattern

10 Full-text scanning ABRACADABRAtext CAB pattern CAB...

11 Full-text scanning for single term: (naive: O(N*M)) Knuth Morris and Pratt (‘77) Boyer and Moore (‘77) preprocess pattern; start from right to left & skip! ABRACADABRAtext CAB pattern

12 Full-text scanning ABRACADABRAtext CAB pattern CAB

13 Full-text scanning ABRACADABRAtext OMINOUS pattern OMINOUS Boyer+Moore: fastest, in practice Sunday (‘90): some improvements

14 Full-text scanning For multiple terms (w/o “don’t care” characters): Aho+Corasic (‘75) again, build a simplified FSA in O(M) time Probabilistic algorithms: ‘fingerprints’ (Karp + Rabin ‘87) approximate match: ‘agrep’ [Wu+Manber, Baeza-Yates+, ‘92]

15 Full-text scanning Approximate matching - string editing distance: d( ‘survey’, ‘surgery’) = 2 = min # of insertions, deletions, substitutions to transform the first string into the second SURVEY SURGERY

16 Full-text scanning string editing distance - how to compute? A:

17 Full-text scanning string editing distance - how to compute? A: dynamic programming cost( i, j ) = cost to match prefix of length i of first string s with prefix of length j of second string t

18 Full-text scanning if s[i] = t[j] then cost( i, j ) = cost(i-1, j-1) else cost(i, j ) = min ( 1 + cost(i, j-1) // deletion 1 + cost(i-1, j-1) // substitution 1 + cost(i-1, j) // insertion )

19 Full-text scanning Complexity: O(M*N) (when using a matrix to ‘memoize’ partial results)

20 Full-text scanning Conclusions: Full text scanning needs no space overhead, but is slow for large datasets

21 Text - Detailed outline text problem full text scanning inversion signature files clustering information filtering and LSI

22 Text - Inversion

23 Q: space overhead?

24 Text - Inversion A: mainly, the postings lists

25 Text - Inversion how to organize dictionary? stemming – Y/N? insertions?

26 Text - Inversion how to organize dictionary? B-tree, hashing, TRIEs, PATRICIA trees,... stemming – Y/N? insertions?

27 Text – Inversion newer topics: Parallelism [Tomasic+,93] Insertions [Tomasic+94], [Brown+] ‘zipf’ distributions Approximate searching (‘glimpse’ [Wu+])

28 postings list – more Zipf distr.: eg., rank-frequency plot of ‘Bible’ log(rank) log(freq) Text - Inversion freq ~ 1 / (rank * ln(1.78V))

29 Text - Inversion postings lists Cutting+Pedersen (keep first 4 in B-tree leaves) how to allocate space: [Faloutsos+92] geometric progression compression (Elias codes) [Zobel+] – down to 2% overhead!

30 Conclusions Conclusions: needs space overhead (2%-300%), but it is the fastest

31 Text - Detailed outline text problem full text scanning inversion signature files clustering information filtering and LSI

32 Signature files idea: ‘quick & dirty’ filter

33 Signature files idea: ‘quick & dirty’ filter then, do seq. scan on sign. file and discard ‘false alarms’ Adv.: easy insertions; faster than seq. scan Disadv.: O(N) search (with small constant) Q: how to extract signatures?

34 Signature files A: superimposed coding!! [Mooers49],... m (=4 bits/word) ~ (=4 bits set to “1” and the rest left as “0”) F (=12 bits sign. size) the bit patterns are OR-ed to form the document signature

35 Signature files A: superimposed coding!! [Mooers49],... data actual match

36 Signature files A: superimposed coding!! [Mooers49],... retrieval actual dismissal

37 Signature files A: superimposed coding!! [Mooers49],... nucleotic false alarm (‘false drop’)

38 Signature files A: superimposed coding!! [Mooers49],... ‘YES’ is ‘MAYBE’ ‘NO’ is ‘NO’

39 Signature files Q1: How to choose F and m ? Q2: Why is it called ‘false drop’? Q3: other apps of signature files?

40 Signature files Q1: How to choose F and m ? m (=4 bits/word) F (=12 bits sign. size)

41 Signature files Q1: How to choose F and m ? A: so that doc. signature is 50% full m (=4 bits/word) F (=12 bits sign. size)

42 Signature files Q1: How to choose F and m ? Q2: Why is it called ‘false drop’? Q3: other apps of signature files?

43 Signature files Q2: Why is it called ‘false drop’? Old, but fascinating story [1949] how to find qualifying books (by title word, and/or author, and/or keyword) in O(1) time? without computers

44 Signature files Solution: edge-notched cards each title word is mapped to m numbers(how?) and the corresponding holes are cut out:

45 Signature files Solution: edge-notched cards data ‘data’ -> #1, #39

46 Signature files Search, e.g., for ‘data’: activate needle #1, #39, and shake the stack of cards! data ‘data’ -> #1, #39

47 Signature files Also known as ‘zatocoding’, from ‘Zator’ company.

48 Signature files Q1: How to choose F and m ? Q2: Why is it called ‘false drop’? Q3: other apps of signature files?

49 Signature files Q3: other apps of signature files? A: anything that has to do with ‘membership testing’: does ‘data’ belong to the set of words of the document?

50 Signature files UNIX’s early ‘spell’ system [McIlroy] Bloom-joins in System R* [Mackert+] and ‘active disks’ [Riedel99] differential files [Severance+Lohman]

51 Signature files - conclusions easy insertions; slower than inversion brilliant idea of ‘quick and dirty’ filter: quickly discard the vast majority of non- qualifying elements, and focus on the rest.

59 Vector Space Model and Clustering keyword queries (vs Boolean) each document: -> vector (HOW?) each query: -> vector search for ‘similar’ vectors

60 Vector Space Model and Clustering main idea: document...data... aaron zoo data V (= vocabulary size) ‘indexing’

61 Vector Space Model and Clustering Then, group nearby vectors together Q1: cluster search? Q2: cluster generation? Two significant contributions ranked output relevance feedback

62 Vector Space Model and Clustering cluster search: visit the (k) closest superclusters; continue recursively CS TRs TU TRs

63 Vector Space Model and Clustering ranked output: easy! CS TRs TU TRs

67 Outline - detailed main idea cluster search cluster generation evaluation

68 Cluster generation Problem: given N points in V dimensions, group them

69 Cluster generation Problem: given N points in V dimensions, group them

70 Cluster generation We need Q1: document-to-document similarity Q2: document-to-cluster similarity

71 Cluster generation Q1: document-to-document similarity (recall: ‘bag of words’ representation) D1: {‘data’, ‘retrieval’, ‘system’} D2: {‘lung’, ‘pulmonary’, ‘system’} distance/similarity functions?

72 Cluster generation A1: # of words in common A2: normalized by the vocabulary sizes A3:.... etc About the same performance - prevailing one: cosine similarity

73 Cluster generation cosine similarity: similarity(D1, D2) = cos( θ ) = sum(v 1,i * v 2,i ) / len(v 1 )/ len(v 2 ) θ D1 D2

74 Cluster generation cosine similarity - observations: related to the Euclidean distance weights v i,j : according to tf/idf θ D1 D2

75 Cluster generation tf (‘term frequency’) high, if the term appears very often in this document. idf (‘inverse document frequency’) penalizes ‘common’ words, that appear in almost every document

76 Cluster generation We need Q1: document-to-document similarity Q2: document-to-cluster similarity ?

77 Cluster generation A1: min distance (‘single-link’) A2: max distance (‘all-link’) A3: avg distance A4: distance to centroid ?

78 Cluster generation A1: min distance (‘single-link’) leads to elongated clusters A2: max distance (‘all-link’) many, small, tight clusters A3: avg distance in between the above A4: distance to centroid fast to compute

79 Cluster generation We have document-to-document similarity document-to-cluster similarity Q: How to group documents into ‘natural’ clusters

80 Cluster generation A: *many-many* algorithms - in two groups [VanRijsbergen]: theoretically sound (O(N^2)) independent of the insertion order iterative (O(N), O(N log(N))

81 Cluster generation - ‘sound’ methods Approach#1: dendrograms - create a hierarchy (bottom up or top-down) - choose a cut-off (how?) and cut cat tigerhorsecow

82 Cluster generation - ‘sound’ methods Approach#2: min. some statistical criterion (eg., sum of squares from cluster centers) like ‘k-means’ but how to decide ‘k’?

83 Cluster generation - ‘sound’ methods Approach#3: Graph theoretic [Zahn]: build MST; delete edges longer than 2.5* std of the local average

84 Cluster generation - ‘sound’ methods Result: variations Complexity?

85 Cluster generation - ‘iterative’ methods general outline: Choose ‘seeds’ (how?) assign each vector to its closest seed (possibly adjusting cluster centroid) possibly, re-assign some vectors to improve clusters Fast and practical, but ‘unpredictable’

86 Cluster generation - ‘iterative’ methods general outline: Choose ‘seeds’ (how?) assign each vector to its closest seed (possibly adjusting cluster centroid) possibly, re-assign some vectors to improve clusters Fast and practical, but ‘unpredictable’

87 Cluster generation one way to estimate # of clusters k: the ‘cover coefficient’ [Can+] ~ SVD

88 Outline - detailed main idea cluster search cluster generation evaluation

89 Evaluation Q: how to measure ‘goodness’ of one distance function vs another? A: ground truth (by humans) and ‘precision’ and ‘recall’

90 Evaluation precision = (retrieved & relevant) / retrieved 100% precision -> no false alarms recall = (retrieved & relevant)/ relevant 100% recall -> no false dismissals

93 Text - Detailed outline text problem full text scanning inversion signature files clustering information filtering and LSI

94 LSI - Detailed outline LSI problem definition main idea experiments

95 Information Filtering + LSI [Foltz+,’92] Goal: users specify interests (= keywords) system alerts them, on suitable news- documents Major contribution: LSI = Latent Semantic Indexing latent (‘hidden’) concepts

96 Information Filtering + LSI Main idea map each document into some ‘concepts’ map each term into some ‘concepts’ ‘Concept’:~ a set of terms, with weights, e.g. “data” (0.8), “system” (0.5), “retrieval” (0.6) -> DBMS_concept

97 Information Filtering + LSI Pictorially: term-document matrix (BEFORE)

98 Information Filtering + LSI Pictorially: concept-document matrix and...

99 Information Filtering + LSI... and concept-term matrix

100 Information Filtering + LSI Q: How to search, eg., for ‘system’?

101 Information Filtering + LSI A: find the corresponding concept(s); and the corresponding documents

102 Information Filtering + LSI A: find the corresponding concept(s); and the corresponding documents

103 Information Filtering + LSI Thus it works like an (automatically constructed) thesaurus: we may retrieve documents that DON’T have the term ‘system’, but they contain almost everything else (‘data’, ‘retrieval’)

104 LSI - Detailed outline LSI problem definition main idea experiments

105 LSI - Experiments 150 Tech Memos (TM) / month 34 users submitted ‘profiles’ (6-66 words per profile) concepts

106 LSI - Experiments four methods, cross-product of: vector-space or LSI, for similarity scoring keywords or document-sample, for profile specification measured: precision/recall

107 LSI - Experiments LSI, with document-based profiles, were better precision recall (0.25,0.65) (0.50,0.45) (0.75,0.30)

108 LSI - Discussion - Conclusions Great idea, to derive ‘concepts’ from documents to build a ‘statistical thesaurus’ automatically to reduce dimensionality Often leads to better precision/recall but: Needs ‘training’ set of documents ‘concept’ vectors are not sparse anymore

109 LSI - Discussion - Conclusions Observations Bellcore (-> Telcordia) has a patent used for multi-lingual retrieval How exactly SVD works?

110 Indexing - Detailed outline primary key indexing secondary key / multi-key indexing spatial access methods fractals text SVD: a powerful tool multimedia...
