Abstract

The flexible pseudo-relevance feedback (PRF) for selecting appropriate R and/or T for each request to enhance the reliability of PRF was explored. Though, as requests could not be discriminated accurately, it was realized that even this "binary decision" version of the flexible PRF problem is challenging. This paper looks for an alternative way of improving the realibility of PRF, namely, to enhance the term selection criterion itself.
