I was wondering if there is any interest in an Introduction to Information
Retrieval talk on Wednesday, September 15.
Topics would include:
- Vector Space Model
- Cosine Similarity
- TF/IDF Term Weighting
- Precision & Recall Metrics
- Collaborative Filtering
- Clustering Analysis
I could give a high level overview with some compelling examples to help
wrap your brains around the math. The basics are intuitive & easy to grasp,
so I should have time to at least touch on everything above in an hour.
After that we could do Q & A, delving deeper into some of the techniques or
applying them to some of your domains of research/work. (If you have ideas
for the latter, please send me them so I can try to work them into my
examples for the talk & slides.)
