    When you work with your farsi search engines, take care about the encoding problem. The Mahak's documents have been stored in UTF-8 encoding, but there is a small problem with "Fe" character (ف). It's better to replace it with its correct code number before peforming retrieval process.

      1384-09-30 December 21, 2005 06:20 AM

    Few comments on optional part of 3rd project:
    • At first you must summarize each document into a one-sentence-abstract,  this abstracts collection is one of your deliverables
    • Then we'll give you a list of queries and you will indentify relevant documents for each query with assigning a number between 0 and 100 (membership degree in other words)
    • Notice that list of relevant documents for queries has been identified before and goal of this project is just refining our previous judgments (some kind of collaborative filtering) and therefore we strongly recommend you to do your works carefully; Otherwise you'll get negative points for each irrelevant document

      1384-09-17 December 08, 2005 05:26 AM
