Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-836) Benchmarks Enhancements (precision/recall, TREC, Wikipedia)

Karl Wettin commented on LUCENE-836:
------------------------------------

Regarding data and user queries, I have a 150 000 document corpus with 4 000 000 queries that
I might be able to convince the owners to release. It is great data, but a bit politically
incorrect (torrents). 

There is some simple Wikipedia harvesting in LUCENE-826, and I'm in the middle of rewriting
it to a more general Wikipedia library for text mining purposes. Perhaps you have some ideas
you want to put in there? I plan something like this:

public class WikipediaCorpus {  
  Map<String, String> wikipediaDomainPrefixByLanguageISO
  Map<URL, WikipediaArticle> harvestedArticle

  public WikipediaArticle getArticle(String languageISO, String title) {
    ..
  }
}

public class WikipediaArticle {
  WikipediaArticle(URL url) {
    ..
  }
 
  String languageISO;
  String title;
  String[] contentParagraphs

  Date[] modified; 

  Map<String, String> articleInOtherLanguagesByLanguageISO

}

> Would be great if the benchmark contrib had a way of providing precision/recall benchmark
information ala TREC.  I don't know what the copyright issues are for the TREC queries/data
(I think the queries are available, but not sure about the data), so not sure if the is even
feasible, but I could imagine we could at least incorporate support for it for those who have
access to the data.  It has been a long time since I have participated in TREC, so perhaps
someone more familiar w/ the latest can fill in the blanks here.
> Another option is to ask for volunteers to create queries and make judgments for the
Reuters data, but that is a bit more complex and probably not necessary.  Even so, an Apache
licensed set of benchmarks may be useful for the community as a whole.  Hmmm.... 
> Wikipedia might be another option instead of Reuters to setup as a download for benchmarking,
as it is quite large and I believe the licensing terms are quite amenable.  Having a larger
collection would be good for stressing Lucene more and would give many users a demonstration
of how Lucene handles large collections.
> At any rate, this kind of information could be useful for people looking at different
indexing schemes, formats, payloads and different query strategies.
