  • Applying Wikipedia to Interactive Information Retrieval

    Milne, David N. (University of Waikato, 2010)
    There are many opportunities to improve the interactivity of information retrieval systems beyond the ubiquitous search box. One idea is to use knowledge bases—e.g. controlled vocabularies, classification schemes, thesauri ...
  • Clustering documents using a Wikipedia-based concept representation

    Huang, Anna; Witten, Ian H.; Frank, Eibe; Milne, David N. (Springer, 2009)
    This paper shows how Wikipedia and the semantic knowledge it contains can be exploited for document clustering. We first create a concept-based document representation by mapping the terms and phrases within documents to ...
  • Clustering documents with active learning using Wikipedia

    Huang, Anna; Witten, Ian H.; Frank, Eibe; Milne, David N. (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Wikipedia has been applied as a background knowledge base to various text mining problems, but very few attempts have been made to utilize it for document clustering. In this paper we propose to exploit the semantic knowledge ...
  • A competitive environment for exploratory query expansion

    Milne, David N.; Nichols, David M.; Witten, Ian H. (ACM, 2008)
    Most information workers query digital libraries many times a day. Yet people have little opportunity to hone their skills in a controlled environment, or compare their performance with others in an objective way. Conversely, ...
  • An effective, low-cost measure of semantic relatedness obtained from Wikipedia links

    Witten, Ian H.; Milne, David N. (AAAI Press, 2008)
    This paper describes a new technique for obtaining measures of semantic relatedness. Like other recent approaches, it uses Wikipedia to provide structured world knowledge about the terms of interest. Out approach is unique ...
