End-to-End Neural Ad-hoc Ranking with Kernel Pooling

20 Jun 2017Chenyan XiongZhuyun DaiJamie CallanZhiyuan LiuRussell Power

This paper proposes K-NRM, a kernel based neural model for document ranking. Given a query and a set of documents, K-NRM uses a translation matrix that models word-level similarities via word embeddings, a new kernel-pooling technique that uses kernels to extract multi-level soft match features, and a learning-to-rank layer that combines those features into the final ranking score...
