CoFox

Jesus Alberto Rodriguez Perez, Stewart Whiting, Joemon M. Jose
2011 Proceedings of the 3rd international workshop on Collaborative information retrieval - CIR '11  
CoFox differs from other collaborative web browsing systems in that it provides a live video stream of web content being viewed by the remote user as the main awareness supporting mechanism.  ...  This paper outlines the preliminary design of a novel synchronous collaborative web browsing system named CoFox.  ...  SearchTogether also provides a tool called "split search", which divides the results of a search amongst the users for them to evaluate.  ...

Further Experiments on Collaborative Ranking in Community-Based Web Search

Jill Freyne, Barry Smyth, Maurice Coyle, Evelyn Balfe, Peter Briggs
2004 Artificial Intelligence Review  
In this paper we describe a novel approach to using context in Web search that seeks to personalize the results of a generic search engine for the needs of a specialist community of users.  ...  Given the vagueness of Web search queries, recent research has focused on ways to introduce context into the search process as a means of clarifying vague, underspecified or ambiguous query terms.  ...  In order to provide further evidence in support of collaborative search we have recently completed a largerscale live-user evaluation, which we will describe in the following section.  ...

2011 2011 IEEE Third Int'l Conference on Privacy, Security, Risk and Trust and 2011 IEEE Third Int'l Conference on Social Computing  
As a result, researchers have begun to explore the potential for a more collaborative approach to web search, one in which the search actions of other users can influence the results returned.  ...  We describe a number of different reputation models and evaluate them in the context of a particular social search service.  ...  In this section we evaluate our page reputation models using data generated during a recent closed, live-user trial of HeyStaks, designed to evaluate the utility of the HeyStaks brand of collaborative  ...

2011 Proceedings of the 15th international conference on Intelligent user interfaces - IUI '11  
ABSTRACT In this paper we describe the results of a live-user study to demonstrate the benefits of using the social search utility HeyStaks, a novel approach to Web search that combines ideas from personalization  ...  and social networking to provide a more collaborative search experience.  ...  In particular, we have described the results of a new live-user evaluation of HeyStaks. Our findings show how HeyStaks brings significant benefits to collaborating searchers.  ...

Personalization via collaboration in Web retrieval systems: A context based approach

Ayse Goker, Daqing He
2005 Proceedings of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Finally, a user-oriented evaluation of Web-based adaptive retrieval systems is presented as an important aspect of the overall strategy for personalization.  ...  Then, based on the differences in the nature of documents, users and search tasks between traditional and Web retrieval environments, we describe our extensions of integrating collaboration in personalization  ...  Whether searches should be performed on the 'live Web' or on a large but finite extracted portion of the Web?  ...

Mining recommendations from the web

Guy Shani, Max Chickering, Christopher Meek
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 ACM conference on Recommender systems - RecSys '08  
We propose a new evaluation metric, that takes into account the difficulty of prediction. We show that the new metric aligns well with the results from a user study.  ...  In this paper we study the challenges and evaluate the effectiveness of data collected from the web for recommendations.  ...  MINING THE WEB FOR RECOMMEN-DATIONS The World Wide Web can be thought of as a huge database of documents for which a search engine [6] such as Microsoft Live Search 1 provides indexing to allow us to  ...

A Case-Based Perspective on Social Web Search [chapter]

Barry Smyth, Peter Briggs, Maurice Coyle, Michael P. O'Mahony
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we build on recent work to describe and evaluate a new application of case-based Web search, one that focuses on how experience reuse can support collaboration among searchers.  ...  Special emphasis is placed on the development of a case-based system that is compatible with existing search engines. We also describe the results of a live-user deployment.  ...  In short we argue that this implementation of case-based Web search adds a new layer of collaboration to Web search by mediating the reuse of search experiences.  ...

and Chi 2009] , whereby the search efforts of a user might be influenced by their social graph or the searches of others, potentially leading to a more collaborative model of search.  ...  This paper focuses on the second idea, that of collaboration. In the main, web search takes the form of an isolated interaction between lone searcher and search engine.  ...  In this section we describe the results of a closed, live-user trial of HeyStaks, designed to evaluate the utility of HeyStaks' brand of collaborative search in factfinding, information discovery tasks  ...

2011 Proceedings of the 20th ACM international conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '11  
We propose Collaborative Exploratory Search (CES), which is an integration of dialog analysis and web search that involves multiparty collaboration to accomplish an exploratory information retrieval goal  ...  Given a real-time dialog between users on a single topic; we define CES as the task of automatically detecting the topic of the dialog and retrieving task-relevant web pages to support the dialog.  ...  discounted cumulative gain (NDCG), evaluating a collaborative search system is a challenging task because of the lack of any gold standard for the collaborative search task or evaluation measures that  ...
