Question:

How to increase recall in information retrieval?

 

Answer:

Recall is the fraction of relevant documents that are retrieved. By modifying the initial query, we can improve the recall. This can be done as follows;

1. By adding new terms to the original query terms that are semantically related to the terms of the original query. This is referred as global method.

2. By making the query vector more similar to vectors of relevant documents. We need some indication of relevance either provided by the user or assumed by the model. This approach is referred as local method.
