In this seminar groups of students will design and
implement a search engine on top of the German Wikipedia. Based on the
information retrieval lecture, different ranking algorithms should be
implemented, such as BM25 or language models. The search engine should also
support boolean search, prefix search, and retrieve linked pages. To present
the search result rankings, a snippet generator algorithm has to be developed
and finally we will compare the search results with Wikipedia's search engine
results for a set of test queries to find the best implementation.
This seminar is for Master students who also participate in the Information Retrieval lecture.
This seminar is based on this book available in the university library.
