A conceptual, case-relation representation of text for intelligent retrieval
Abstract: "This research demonstrates that intelligent retrieval is possible using a conceptual representation. It is an attempt to move from contemporary IR toward retrieval of ideas through text analysis. Intelligent retrieval systems should help the user find information while allowing him or her to concentrate on the problem that occasioned the search. The user must be free to reason through his or her problem with additional, newly retrieved information. Search operations should be a secondary consideration. In addition, a conceptual representation enables the user to find information about ideas that he or she cannot name but can outline. Such information can be found even when the stored text does not contain relevent nominals. In order to accomplish intelligent retrieval, a semantic representation of the text had to be made.
