T3 – Advanced Information Processing |
The main objective of this course is to introduce the students to the problems of search engines and information retrieval (IR). IR deals with the representation, storage, organization of, and access to information items. These items could be references to real documents, documents themselves or even single paragraphs, as well as Web pages, spoken documents, images, pictures, music, video, etc.
Practical exercises will complete the theoretical presentation.
