It was good, therefore, that the opening Salton Award lecture by Tefko Saracevic of Rutgers University made us feel at home with a talk entitled <cite>Users Lost</cite>. He described the history of the field and, what he felt, was a split in the early 80s between the technical algorithm-based side and the user-oriented side.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue11/sigir97" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue11 event report david nichols british library oclc princeton university rutgers university university of california berkeley university of glasgow algorithm data database digital library information retrieval lexical database medical subject headings metadata research search technology visualisation wordnet Thu, 18 Sep 1997 23:00:00 +0000 editor 403 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Lessons Learned from Developing and Delivering the BORGES Information Filtering Tool http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/borges <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue6/borges#author1">Alan Smeaton</a> discusses the development and implementation of BORGES, an information filtering service for WWW pages and USENET news.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Although it may appear that it is only recently that we have discovered a need for automatic information filtering, the practice of automatically filtering a flow of information has been in use for over 30 years. The emphasis in systems since the earliest days has been on the speed of the filtering operation, ensuring that it is performed as quickly as possible. Because of the volume of information now being generated and the requirement to have this filtered, issues of quality or the relevance of information filtered for a user, are now becoming increasingly important.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue6/borges" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue6 project update alan smeaton d-lib magazine dublin city university cache copyright data database html information retrieval java lexical database passwords research search technology standardisation tagging url vocabularies wordnet Tue, 19 Nov 1996 00:00:00 +0000 editor 202 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
