Web Pages Clustering: A New Approach by Jeevan H E, Prashanth P P, Punith Kumar S N, and Vinay Hegde.
The rapid growth of web has resulted in vast volume of information. Information availability at a rapid speed to the user is vital. English language (or any for that matter) has lot of ambiguity in the usage of words. So there is no guarantee that a keyword based search engine will provide the required results. This paper introduces the use of dictionary (standardised) to obtain the context with which a keyword is used and in turn cluster the results based on this context. These ideas can be merged with a metasearch engine to enhance the search efficiency.
The first part of this paper is concerned with the use of a dictionary to create separate queries for each “sense” of a term. I am not sure that is an innovation.
I don’t have the citation at hand but seem to recall that term rewriting for queries has used something very much like a dictionary. Perhaps not a “dictionary” in the conventional sense but I would not even bet on that. Anyone have a better memory than mine and/or working in query rewriting?
