    Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


    Performant Indexes and Search for Academia (PISA) is an experimental search engine that focuses on efficient implementations of state-of-the-art representations and algorithms for text retrieval. In this work, we outline our effort in creating a replicable search run from PISA for the 2019 Open Source Information Retrieval Replicability Challenge, which encourages the information retrieval community to produce replicable systems through the use of a containerized, Docker-based infrastructure. We also discuss the origins, current functionality, and future direction and challenges for the PISA system.
