Information Retrieval

The objective of Information Retrieval (IR) is to search large data collections for information relevant to a user’s information requirements. The term “information retrieval” was coined by Calvin Mooers in 1950. Like “research” the word “retrieval” does not refer to refinding something. It rather relates to the information retrieval paradox: “If I knew what I was searching for, I wouldn’t be searching for it.”

Information retrieval is focuses on three dimensions: systems and applications, theory and models, evaluation. Various retrieval models exist, such as Vector Space Model (VSM) and probabilistic and language models. For evaluatio,n recall and precision are often used. SMART was an early retrieval system that dealt with all three aspects. RankBrain is a more recent retrieval system based on TensorFlow.
