Title (EN) A SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR SEARCH OF SOURCES AND TARGETS BASED ON RELATIVE EXPERTISE OF THE SOURCES
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE RECHERCHES DE SOURCES ET DE CIBLES BASÉS SUR UNE EXPERTISE RELATIVE QUANT AUX SOURCES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A new approach is proposed that contemplates systems and methods to provide a ranking of citied objects and citing subjects identified as results of a search, where the relative expertise of subjects or sources of citations to said targets or objects is considered. The relative expertise is a function of the share of the subject's citations matching the query term or search criteria relative to the share of all subjects' citations matching the query term, weighted by the influence of the subjects. This allows the identification of "experts" on "topics" without any predefined categorization of topics or pre-computation of expertise. Under this novel approach, expertise can be determined on any query term in real-time.
(FR)Cette invention concerne une nouvelle façon d'envisager des systèmes et des procédés permettant de classer des objets cités et des sujets « citants » identifiés à la suite d'une recherche, l'expertise relative des sujets ou des sources de citations étant prise en compte. L'expertise relative est fonction du rapport entre la part de citations du sujet correspondant aux termes de l'interrogation ou des critères de recherche et la part des citations de tous les sujets correspondant aux termes de l'interrogation, pondéré par l'influence des sujets. Il est ainsi possible d'identifier des « experts » sur des « sujets » en dehors de toute catégorisation prédéfinie de sujets ou de calcul préalable de l'expertise. Avec cette nouvelle approche, l'expertise peut être déterminée quels que soient les termes de l'interrogation.
