Designing a Hash Function for Information Retrieval


Owheo 106 - 1:00 pm, Friday 25 July


Information retrieval is a tool that is used a large number of times per day by most people. Most often this is in the form of Google, or for an unfortunate few, Bing. In this presentation I will briefly describe the indexing process that allows these tools to exist, followed by a discussion of my recent work in designing a hash function that utilises some properties of English text to hopefully increase the throughput of the indexing process.
