Sample text

The whole point of IR evaluation, as practiced, is to compare relevance inferences from different levels. We can typify relevance as it manifests itself at different levels, and we can then study its behavior and effects within and between strata—as treated in relevant sections. E. Summary All IR and information seeking models have relevance at their base either explicitly or as an invisible hand—in effect they are relevance models. A variety of integrative relevance models, above and beyond the simple traditional IR model, have been proposed.

Do all other manifestations of relevance follow from topical relevance and does it have primacy among relevance manifestations? As we can imagine, there are two schools of thought: yes and no. In the first, topicality is basic. For example, in summarizing definitions of topical relevance, pertinence, and utility, Soergel (1994) suggests that an entity—information object—is topically relevant if it can help to answer a user’s question; it is pertinent if topically relevant and appropriate for the user—a user can understand and use the information obtained—and it has utility if pertinent and gives the user new information.

It is not system relevance against user relevance. The central issue and problem is: How can we make the user and system side work together for the benefit of both? When IR systems fail, the main reason is a failure in relevance; thus, that is the best reason for advocating the resolution of the system–user problem in an integrative manner. 26 Tefko Saracevic A number of works have tried to reconcile the two viewpoints, suggesting integrative relevance models as a solution to the problem. Starting from the user viewpoint, Ingwersen and Ja¨rvelin (2005) produced a massive volume outlining the integration of approaches in information seeking and IR in context.
