We were one of 84 TREC 2020
participants - this year, in the News track only. Incredible portfolio of test collections since 1992!
TREC is not a competition, but I'm still proud on ranking 2nd in background linking, with the MSc thesis work by Pepijn Boers. Using graphs to represent documents instead of bag-of-words, a highly original approach that can be developed further.
The "unofficial" Information Retrieval Mastodon Instance.
Goal: Make idf.social a viable and valuable social space for anyone working in Information Retrieval and related scientific research.
Everyone welcome but expect some level of geekiness on the instance and federated timelines.
