About the Authors of introduction to information retrieval pdf:
Christopher Manning is the inaugral Thomas M. Siebel Professor in Machine Learning in the Departments of Computer Science and Linguistics at Stanford University. His research goal is computers that can intelligently process, understand, and generate human language material. Manning is a leader in applying Deep Learning to Natural Language Processing, with well-known research on Tree Recursive Neural Networks, sentiment analysis, neural network dependency parsing, the GloVe model of word vectors, neural machine translation, and deep language understanding. He also focuses on computational linguistic approaches to parsing, robust textual inference and multilingual language processing, including being a principal developer of Stanford Dependencies and Universal Dependencies. Manning has coauthored leading textbooks on statistical approaches to Natural Language Processing (NLP) (Manning and Schütze 1999) and information retrieval (Manning, Raghavan, and Schütze, 2008), as well as linguistic monographs on ergativity and complex predicates. He is an ACM Fellow, a AAAI Fellow, and an ACL Fellow, and a Past President of the ACL. Research of his has won ACL, Coling, EMNLP, and CHI Best Paper Awards. He has a B.A. (Hons) from The Australian National University and a Ph.D. from Stanford in 1994, and he held faculty positions at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Sydney before returning to Stanford. He is the founding member of the Stanford NLP group (@stanfordnlp) and manages development of the Stanford CoreNLP software.
Prabhakar Raghavan is a Vice President of Engineering at Google. His research spans algorithms, web search and databases and he is the co-author of the textbooks Randomized Algorithms with Rajeev Motwani and Introduction to Information Retrieval. Raghavan holds a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a Bachelor of Technology from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. Prior to joining Google, he worked at Yahoo! Labs. Before that, Raghavan worked at IBM Research and later became senior vice president and chief technology officer at enterprise search vendor Verity. Raghavan is a member of the National Academy of Engineering; a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). From 2003 to 2009, Raghavan was the editor-in-chief of Journal of the ACM.
Hinrich Schütze is investigating one of the current fundamental problems of computer linguistics, namely the seemingly unbridgeable gap between useful and practical applications on the one hand and cognitively/linguistically plausible computational models of language on the other hand. So-called “word embeddings” from the field of neuronal networks are a new paradigm in the processing of language and in mechanical learning: a paradigm that is made possible by hugely increased computation capacities and by groundbreaking discoveries on the convergence of complex networks. Linguists have been virtually unable to work within this new paradigm to date. Hinrich Schütze’s research is intended to close this gap: those questions are to be considered which present themselves in the context of linguistics when “embeddings” become the basis of the theory and practice of computer linguistics. Schütze thus hopes to make considerable progress towards developing a form of computer linguistics that is equally relevant for linguists and engineers.
conclusion of introduction to information retrieval pdf:
This book teaches web-era information retrieval, including web search and the related areas of text classification and text clustering from basic concepts. All the important ideas are explained using examples and figures, making it perfect for introductory courses in information retrieval for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in computer science. Based on feedback this book has been become more effective, interactive and useful. introduction to information retrieval pdf is written for graduate students but researchers can also found it interesting for their research work.
