• Knowledge-Based Document Retrieval: Framework and Design

      Chen, Hsinchun (1992-06)
      This article presents research on the design of knowledge-based document retrieval systems. We adopted a semantic network structure to represent subject knowledge and classification scheme knowledge and modeled experts' search strategies and user modeling capability as procedural knowledge. These functionalities were incorporated into a prototype knowledge-based retrieval system, Metacat. Our system, the design of which was based on the blackboard architecture, was able to create a user profile, identify task requirements, suggest heuristics-based search strategies, perform semantic-based search assistance, and assist online query refinement.
