Hello, 

I noticed that articles titles are not in the benchmarkY2.topics file but are the only ones available in benchmarkY2.titles. For passage ranking, can we just use all the headings as available from iterating over benchmarkY2.cbor-outline.cbor? Also, for passage retrieval, we are supposed to use paragraphCorpus.v2.0.tar.xz, correct? 

Thanks, 

Widad

Dear Wilad,

Yes! To create rankings, please iterate over all headings in the benchmarkY2.cbor-outline.cbor (including internal headings)

The *.topics file is intended for validation. It works with the validation script (download from trec-car site)

I followed TREC terminology where topic = query, and therefore *topics indicated all the things for which a ranking is to be created.
The *titles is just the list of article titles.

Best,
Laura

Thanks Laura. Can you also please comment on this: for passage retrieval, we are supposed to use paragraphCorpus.v2.0.tar.xz, correct? Or is there a smaller paragraph corpus to work with?

Hi Widad,

yes, you retrieve paragraphs from the paragraphCorpus.

By IR standards this is not a large collection. I am not sure what you are hoping a "smaller collection" would do.

If you only want paragraphs that are relevant for, say, benchmarkY1train, then you find those in the benchmarkY1-train archive as *paragraphs.cbor.  But these will not be available for the benchmarkY2test queries used in the evaluation.

Best,
Laura
