 (EMC Research China) Cloud based Personal Information Management – Introduction to EMC Cloud Computing [ppt]
With the requirements of automatic online storage and backup, round the clock access and securely sharing andpublishing of personal digital information, it is inevitable that personal information management will migrate into the cloud. The goal of personal information cloud service is to securely access and organize all your information anytime, anywhere, using any device and never lose any of it. EMC is creating a new cloud services business called Decho ('digital echo' referring to the reverberating accesses to information in a user's digital environment)by joining Mozy (cloud backup) and Pi (personal information) together. It will use EMC data centres around the planet to store consumer and business files using Mozy's software front end to provide data ingest and access services and Pi's metadata software to manage and verify personal information. Decho can deliver on the promise of cloud-based personal information management and can help individuals everywhere preserve, manage and enrich the information most important to them.

The second one is similar but applies a discount factor to the relevance scores in order to devaluate late-retrieved documents. The third (fourth) one computes the relative-to-the ideal performance of IR techniques, based on the (discounted) cumulated gain they are able to yield. Then the author examines five different IR techniques using the new measures based on data of TREC-7 and discusses the parameters and the limitations of the new measures.
