Machine learning plays a role in many aspects of modern IR systems, and deep
learning is applied in all of them. The fast pace of modern-day research has
given rise to many different approaches for many different IR problems...
amount of information available can be overwhelming both for junior students
and for experienced researchers looking for new research topics and directions. Additionally, it is interesting to see what key insights into IR problems the
new technologies are able to give us. The aim of this full-day tutorial is to
give a clear overview of current tried-and-trusted neural methods in IR and how
they benefit IR research. It covers key architectures, as well as the most
promising future directions.
