Title : Medical Information Retrieval and its evaluation: an overview of CLEF eHealth evaluation task
Summary : In this talk, I will introduce my research activities in the field of medical information retrieval, and in particular its evaluation.
The use of the Web as source of health-related information is a wide-spread phenomena, and laypeople often have difficulties finding relevant documents. The goal of the CLEF eHealth evaluation challenge is to provide researchers with datasets to improve consumer health search. I will firstly introduce the task and the datasets built. Then I will describe some experiments and results obtained on this dataset.
