Depending on the amount of data to process, file generation may take longer.

If it takes too long to generate, you can limit the data by, for example, reducing the range of years.

EN Query Expansion could bring very significant improvement of baseline results of Information Retrieval process. This has been known for many years, but very detailed results on annotated sets provide richer insight on the preferred added word space. In this work we introduce novel expanded term adequacy measures related to term frequency and inverse document frequency in relevant and non-relevant groups of documents. Term evaluation scores are derived using two term characteristics: inverse term representativeness and term usability. We generate the Optimal Queries based on the documents contents and the Qrels files of data used in the Text Retrieval Conference 2016 – Clinical Decision Support track (TREC-CDS 2016). The improvement can be up to a factor of 2 depending on the evaluation measure. Potentially, the method can be improved by increasing the learning set and applied to retrieval of documents in biomedical contests.
