Abstract: Information retrieval has been an integral domain of storage and retrieval of meaningful information from the early age of computing. The last 15 years has seen a drastic shift of paradigm from classical database retrieval to web-based information retrieval. The WWW has established itself as one of the primary mode of information storage, sharing and searching. The size of the WWW and its users has made the retrieval and retrieval systems much more complicated as well as sophisticated and thus posed a grand challenge to the researchers and developers to design the modern information retrieval system which can return the query result as per user's requirement effectively and efficiently. This survey paper is an attempt to find some of the challenges faced by modern retrieval system in effective retrieval of information and different methodologies of fuzzy logic trying to make this mammoth and complex task simpler.
Keywords: fuzzy logic; web intelligence; information retrieval; semantic web; fuzzy retrieval systems.
