(FR) LEVÉE D'AMBIGUÏTÉS DE REQUÊTES AU MOYEN DE QUESTIONS DE DIALOGUE LEVANT LES AMBIGUÏTÉS
Abstract:
(EN) In various examples there is an information retrieval system which has a memory storing an index of items, each item having one or more features of a plurality of features. The index includes, for each item, an indication of the features of that item; and is configured at least according to the features. The memory stores a plurality of questions about the features of the items. The information retrieval system has a question selector that selects at least one of the questions on the basis of at least an expected information gain of the question with respect to the items. A search component searches the index using answers to the selected questions received from a user.
(FR) L'invention concerne, dans divers exemples un système de récupération d'informations doté d'une mémoire conservant un index d'éléments, chaque élément présentant une ou plusieurs caractéristiques parmi une pluralité de caractéristiques. L'index comprend, pour chaque élément, une indication des caractéristiques de l'élément en question; et est configuré au moins selon les caractéristiques. La mémoire conserve une pluralité de questions concernant les caractéristiques des éléments. Le système de récupération d'informations est doté d'un sélecteur de questions qui sélectionne au moins une des questions en se basant sur au moins un gain d'information prévu de la question par rapport aux éléments. Un composant de recherche explore l'index en utilisant des réponses aux questions sélectionnées, reçues de la part d'un utilisateur.
