B C, Before Computers : on information technology from writing to the age of digital data by S. E Robertson( )

7 editions published in 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea that the digital age has revolutionized our day-to-day experience of the world is nothing new, and has been amply recognized by cultural historians. In contrast, Stephen Robertson's BC: Before Computers is a work which questions the idea that the mid-twentieth century saw a single moment of rupture. It is about all the things that we had to learn, invent, and understand - all the ways we had to evolve our thinking - before we could enter the information technology revolution of the second half of the twentieth century. Its focus ranges from the beginnings of data processing, right back to such originary forms of human technology as the development of writing systems, gathering a whole history of revolutionary moments in the development of information technologies into a single, although not linear narrative
Recherche d'information : applications, modèles et algorithmes by Massih-Reza Amini( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in French and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le premier ouvrage francophone sur les algorithmes qui sous-tendent les technologies de big data et les moteurs de recherche! Depuis quelques années, de nouveaux modèles et algorithmes sont mis au point pour traiter des données de plus en plus volumineuses et diverses. Cet ouvrage présente les fondements scientifiques des tâches les plus répandues en recherche d'information (RI), tâches également liées au data mining, au décisionnel et plus généralement à l'exploitation du big data. La deuxième édition de cet ouvrage propose un exposé détaillé et cohérent des algorithmes classiques développés dans ce domaine, abordable par des lecteurs qui cherchent à connaître le mécanisme des outils quotidiens d'Internet. De plus, le lecteur approfondira les concepts d'indexation, de compression, de recherche sur le Web, de classification et de catégorisation, et pourra prolonger cette étude avec les exercices corrigés proposés en fin de chapitre. Ce livre s'adresse tant aux chercheurs et ingénieurs qui travaillent dans le domaine de l'accès à l'information et employés de PME qui utilisent en profondeur les outils du webmarketing, qu'aux étudiants de Licence, Master, écoles d'ingénieurs ou doctorants qui souhaitent un ouvrage de référence sur la recherche d'information (4e de couverture)

2 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea that the digital age has revolutionized our day-to-day experience of the world is nothing new, and has been amply recognized by cultural historians. In contrast, Stephen Robertson's BC: Before Computers is a work which questions the idea that the mid-twentieth century saw a single moment of rupture. It is about all the things that we had to learn, invent, and understand - all the ways we had to evolve our thinking - before we could enter the information technology revolution of the second half of the twentieth century. Its focus ranges from the beginnings of data processing, right back to such originary forms of human technology as the development of writing systems, gathering a whole history of revolutionary moments in the development of information technologies into a single, although not linear narrative. Treading the line between philosophy and technical history, Robertson draws on his extensive technical knowledge to produce a text which is both thought-provoking and accessible to a wide range of readers. The book is wide in scope, exploring the development of technologies in such diverse areas as cryptography, visual art and music, and the postal system. Through all this, it does not simply aim to tell the story of computer developments but to show that those developments rely on a long history of humans creating technologies for increasingly sophisticated methods of manipulating information. Through a clear structure and engaging style, it brings together a wealth of informative and conceptual explorations into the history of human technologies, and avoids assumptions about any prior knowledge on the part of the reader. As such the expert and the general reader alike will find it of interest
The Probabilistic Relevance Framework : BM25 and beyond by S. E Robertson( )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Probabilistic Relevance Framework (PRF) is a formal framework for document retrieval, grounded in work done in the 1970-1980s, which led to the development of one of the most successful text-retrieval algorithms, BM25. In recent years, research in the PRF has yielded new retrieval models capable of taking into account document meta-data (especially structure and link-graph information). Again, this has led to one of the most successful Web-search and corporate-search algorithms, BM25F. This work presents the PRF from a conceptual point of view, describing the probabilistic modelling assumptions behind the framework and the different ranking algorithms that result from its application: the binary independence model, relevance feedback models, BM25 and BM25F. It also discusses the relation between the PRF and other statistical models for IR, and covers some related topics, such as the use of non-textual features, and parameter optimisation for models with free parameters
