Pure spreading activation is pointless
Almost every application of spreading activation is accompanied by its own set of often heuristic restrictions on the dynamics. We show that in constraint-free scenarios spreading activation would actually yield query-independent results, so that the specific choice of restrictions is not only a pragmatic computational issue, but crucially determines the outcome. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.3.3 [Information storage and retrieval]: Information Search and Retrieval—retrieval models, search process General Terms Algorithms, Theory, Performance Keywords Spreading activation, cosine similarity, information retrieval
