An Implementation of Best Match Algorithm for Korean Text Retrieval in the Client/Server Environment

클라이언트 서버 환경에서 한글텍스트 검색을 위한 베스티매치 알고리즘의 구현

  • Published : 2001.03.01


This paper presents the application of best match search algorithm in the client/server system for natural language access to Web-based database. For this purpose, the procedures to process Korean word variants as well as to execute probabilistic weighting scheme have been implemented in the client/server system. The experimental runs have been done using a Korean test set which included documents, queries and relevance judgements. The experimental results demonstrate that best match retrieval with relevance information is better than the retrieval without it.
