Integrating logical inference in language models for context-sensitive information retrieval

This project "Operationalizing the Logical Uncertainty Principle in a Language Modelling Framework for Context-based Information Retrieval (LUPMIR)" is funded by EPSRC (EP/E002145/1, £163K). We aim to investigate a solution to context-based information retrieval, through integrating context-dependent logical inference in a statistical language modelling framework.
