Arabic JIRS is an adaptation of the JIRS system to the Arabic language. It is a passage retrieval system for Arabic texts which return a set of relevant passages to the user’s query (which is written in Arabic).
The Arabic JIRS, indexes Arabic documents and then provides an interface in order to extract passages which are relevant to the user’s query.
JIRS is fully built on JAVA and adopts a server/client framework. It uses n-gram language modelling for indexation and an a distance density based approach to rank the retrieved passages from the most to the least relevant.
The machine should be able to run JAVA programs.
A server module which indexes the document and a client module to send the query.
To our knowledge, no Arabic PR systems are freely available for the research community.
Developed as part of Yassine Benajiba’s AECI Ph.D. and the MiDES CICYT TIN2006-15265-C06-04 research project, co-funded by the A706706 project.
