We present a bayesian framework for XML document retrieval. This framework allows us to consider content only.
We perform the retrieval task using inference in our network. Our model can adapt to a speciﬁc corpus through
parameter learning and uses a grammar to speed up the
retrieval process in big or distributed databases. We also
experimented list ﬁltering to avoid element overlap in the
retrieved element list.
