Have you ever wondered how search engines work, or how to add one to your program? Maciej Ceglowski walks you through building a simple, fast and effective vector-space search engine. Ausdrucken!
[via Der Schockwellenreiter]]
and from the 'further reading list:
http://www.nitle.org/lsi/intro/ An introduction to latent semantic indexing, the vector model on steroids. The document is aimed at nontechnical readers, but gives some more background information on using vector techniques to search and visualize data collections.
The adventurous can also download some Perl code for latent semantic indexing at http://www.nitle.org/lsi.php. Both the code and the article come from my own work for the National Institute for Technology and Liberal Education.
