Mining rich session context to improve web search

Guangyu Zhu, Gilad Mishne
2009 Proceedings of the 15th ACM SIGKDD international conference on Knowledge discovery and data mining - KDD '09  
User browsing information, particularly their non-search related activity, reveals important contextual information on the preferences and the intent of web users.  ...  In this paper, we expand the use of browsing information for web search ranking and other applications, with an emphasis on analyzing individual user sessions for creating aggregate models.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank Benoit Dumoulin and other members of the Query Intent Modeling Team in Yahoo! Search and Yahoo! Research Barcelona for useful discussions.  ...

User-Based Evaluations of Search Engines: Hygiene Factors and Motivation Factors

Ya-lan Chuang, Ling-ling Wu
2007 2007 40th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS'07)  
Based on a user-oriented perspective, the paper is aimed to derive functional requirements of search engines rooted in Herzberg's Two Factor Theory.  ...  Hygiene factors of search engine "attract" users to try a search engine in the first place, but it is the motivation factors that "retain" users to continue using the same search engine.  ...  This approach is typically represented by the classic information retrieval evaluation, which tests a search engine based on a standard corpus (test queries) and compute precision and recall to compare  ...

Reconstituting the urban through community-articulated digital environments

Ramesh Srinivasan
2004 The Journal of urban technology  
Village Voice is based on a unique architecture of community authored ontology, and raises provocative questions relative to important issues of public space and urbanism.  ...  While a number of digital media projects have been justifiably criticized for their inability to energize community, I believe the problem has been one of design approach.  ...  This is reflective of how closely each thumbnail corresponds to the terms the user decided to search on in the search page. A brighter illumination indicates a closer match with the search query.  ...
