The lab consists of building and evaluating an information system for a specific domain. This entails related work search, data acquisition, data cleansing, indexing, selection and implementation of suitable retrieval models, development of a UI, evaluation of search quality, submission of a written report and well-documented source code, and a final presentation.
Successful participation in the lab project is a prerequisite to complete the module.
- 2019-10-15. Introduction. [slides] [shared task]
- 2019-10-29. Literature Research, Oral Presentations & Scientific Writing. [slides]
- 2019-11-05. Docker. [slides]
