Paper Abstract

Three experiments demonstrate capabilities of the VIBE information retrieval interface. The first explores the identification of reference points sets to spread a collection of displayed documents into small clusters. The second demonstrates using visual representation of a document set to determine the structure of a document collection vis-a-vis a given reference point set when all semantic information has been hidden from the user. In the third experiment VIBE, in conjunction with genetic algorithm techniques, refined the definition of a POI (reference or query point), improving precision and recall.
