Information Retrieval


To recovery of information in a database. There are two main approaches, matching words in the query against the database index (keyword searching) and traversing the database using hypertext or hypermedia links. Evolving information-retrieval techniques, exemplified by developments with modern Internet search engines, combine natural language, hyperlinks, and keyword searching. Other techniques that seek higher levels of retrieval precision are studied by researchers involved with artificial intelligence.
