Abstract: Information Retrieval (IR) is the complex of theories, models, and technologies aiming to retrieve relevant information to user’s information needs. IR has recently made significant advances in understanding the content of multimedia documents and user queries.
In this talk, I’ll illustrate some noticeable advances, in particular, how topic modeling helps understand content and how the use of deep learning helps overcome some obstacles.
