A Hadoop toolkit for web-scale information retrieval research

This page describes a number of experiments on standard test collections using Ivory. Each experiment is associated with a command-line invocation to perform the experiment, command-line invocations to evaluate the results, and a JUnit test case that performs the experiment and checks to see if the results are as expected (in terms of standard metrics of effectiveness). The purpose of enumerating these experiments is for others to be able to replicate our results, thereby providing a solid foundation for building on our work.

Here are the experiments categorized:
