Do You Know Your Term Sequences From Your Vector Space Model?

Yes? No? Maybe?

Dr E Garcia, whos’ current research focuses on co-occurrence theory, semantics, on-topic analysis and fractals in IR systems, has launched a blog called IR Thoughts. Dr Garcia discusses the intersection between search technology and marketing, and will surely provide some much needed depth on the topic.


Thx Bill.

    Thanks for blogging about my blog.

    Actually, term vector is not a model for determining term sequences in the same way that latent semantic indexing (LSI) is not co-occurrence, theming, on-topic analysis or associative (stem) indexing. These are SEO myths/misconceptions. A tutorial series on SVD/LSI is now available at the site.
