An analysis of two approaches in information retrieval: From frameworks to study designs

Kalervo Järvelin
2007 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
There is a well-known gap between Systems-oriented IR and User-oriented IR, which Cognitive IR seeks to bridge.  ...  Thus each approach is capable of contributing very differently to understanding and developing information access. The article also discusses integrating the approaches at the study design level.  ...  The latter proposes work task descriptions and an evaluation package for Interactive Information Retrieval (IIR) including novel effectiveness measures and guidelines for setting up experiments.  ...

Conversational AI from an Information Retrieval Perspective: Remaining Challenges and a Case for User Simulation

Krisztian Balog
2021 Biennial Conference on Design of Experimental Search & Information Retrieval Systems  
This paper highlights challenges that render both offline and online evaluation methodologies unsuitable for this problem, and discusses the use of user simulation as a viable solution.  ...  There remains a disconnect between current efforts and truly conversational information access systems.  ...  We, however, avoid using the term chatbot, which has a different meaning in industrial and academic contexts; in the former case it refers to a task-oriented system, while in the latter it means a non-task-oriented  ...

Physicists' information tasks

Marianne Lykke, Peter Ingwersen, Toine Bogers, Haakon Lund, Birger Larsen
2010 Proceeding of the third symposium on Information interaction in context - IIiX '10  
We analyze 1) the main purpose of the information task, 2) which and how many search facets were used to describe the tasks, 3) what semantic categories were used to express the search facets, and 4) retrieval  ...  The results indicate effect of length and, in particular, of task purpose on retrieval performance of different document description levels that should be examined further.  ...  We have developed a test collection that supports system-driven as well as user-oriented evaluation, based on genuine work task situations, real information tasks, and non-binary relevance judgements  ...

Evaluation in Contextual Information Retrieval

Lynda Tamine, Mariam Daoud
2018 ACM Computing Surveys  
While evaluation is central and has a long history in information retrieval, it faces the big challenge of designing an appropriate methodology that embeds the context into evaluation settings.  ...  More specifically, t his s urvey a rticle a ims t o fill tw o ma in ga ps in th e li terature: Fi rst, it provides a critical summary and comparison of existing contextual information retrieval evaluation  ...  A system is evaluated with respect to its ability to searching among secrets, in other words, retrieving both relevant and non-sensitive information.  ...

The development of a method for the evaluation of interactive information retrieval systems

Pia Borlund, Peter Ingwersen
1997 Journal of Documentation  
The paper describes the ideas and assumptions underlying the development of a new method for the evaluation and testing of interactive information retrieval (IR) systems, and reports on the initial tests  ...  The method takes into account the dynamic nature of information needs which are assumed to develop over time for the same user, a variability which is presumed to be strongly connected to the processes  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The authors wish to express their gratitude to Information Officer Hanne Balch Petersen and Professor Micheline Beaulieu for their conceptual and methodological support during the project  ...

William Hersh, Paul Over
2001 Information Processing & Management  
The papers re¯ect an interest in the process of interactive searching as well as results in the observation, measurement, and evaluation of a human searcher interacting with a search system and data ±  ...  Most of the research carried out within TREC has involved testing information retrieval (IR) systems in a fully automatic setting.  ...  These studies give us a glimpse into the complexity of interactive retrieval evaluation.  ...

Overview of INEX 2004 [chapter]

Saadia Malik, Mounia Lalmas, Norbert Fuhr
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Evaluating the effectiveness of XML retrieval systems requires a test collection (XML documents, tasks/topics, and relevance judgements) where the relevance assessments are provided according to a relevance  ...  The aim of this initiative is to provide means, in the form of large testbeds and appropriate scoring methods, for the evaluation of content-oriented retrieval of XML documents.  ...  Within the ad hoc retrieval task, INEX 2004 defined the following two sub-tasks: CO and VCAS. The CO task stands for content-oriented XML retrieval using CO queries.  ...

A task completion framework to support single-interaction IR research

Anton van der Vegt, Guido Zuccon, Bevan Koopman, Peter Bruza
2018 Journal of Documentation  
Approach: A first principles approach is employed to develop a task-oriented conceptual model, called Bridging Information Retrieval (BIR).  ...  Originality: This work contributes a novel task-oriented IR conceptual model and evaluation framework, both centred around the concept of BI for siIR.  ...  This scenario involves multiple user interactions with the IR system, i.e., After the user commences the search with a query (interaction 1), the system retrieves a list of information objects which the  ...

Assessing Language Learners' Free Productive Vocabulary with Hidden-task-oriented Dialogue Systems

Dolça Tellols, Takenobu Tokunaga, Hilofumi Yamamoto
2020 International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces  
Because these systems do not fall into the existing categories for dialogue systems (task-oriented and non-task-oriented), we named them as hidden-task-oriented dialogue systems.  ...  Though systems have a task, it is hidden from the users. Consequently, these may consider systems task-less.  ...  During the flow of the dialogue, storytelling dialogue systems change between task-oriented and non-task-oriented interactions.  ...
