Title
¬A review of nearest neighbour information retrieval
Source
Information management report. 1994, August, S.11-14
Year
1994
Abstract
Explains the concept of 'nearest neighbour' searching, also known as best match or ranked output, which it is claimed can overcome many of the inadequacies of traditional Boolean methods. Also points to some of the limitations. Identifies a number of commercial information retrieval systems which feature this search technique
