A Visualization Technique to Support Searching Filtering

Mohammad Najah Mehdi, Abdul Rahim Ahmad, Roslan Ismail, Lim Meng Hee
2019 MATEC Web of Conferences  
This paper discusses the need for an integrative literature review on Information Visualization for exploratory search particularly in handling data overload.  ...  Certain search engines incorporate visualization to allow for better understanding of the information and at the same time reduce information overload.  ...  For specific limitations of Web-based information retrieval, visualization may provide a means to fill the gap between a person's needs and system limitation.  ...

Adaptive IR for exploratory search support

Daniel T.J. Backhausen
2012 Proceedings of the 35th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '12  
The goal of this research is to effectively assist at fulfilling complex (work) tasks consisting of multi-session exploratory search activities. To achieve this, information retrieval needs  ...  Most Information Retrieval (IR) software is designed to fit a general user where users are submitting queries and the retrieval system returns a ranked list of results.  ...  This can be done by enabling the user to collect information objects into a personal reference library and visualizing past search activities in a kind of breadcrumb or time line.  ...

Similarity Adaptation in an Exploratory Retrieval Scenario [chapter]

Sebastian Stober, Andreas Nürnberger
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Sometimes users of a multimedia retrieval system are not able to explicitly state their information need.  ...  Exploratory retrieval tools support users in search scenarios where the retrieval goal cannot be stated explicitly as a query or user rather want to browse a collection in order to get an overview and  ...  can help users in an exploratory retrieval scenario where images are to be annotated with topic labels.  ...

Collaborative multi-paradigm exploratory search

Michal Tvarožek, Mária Bieliková
2008 Proceedings of the hypertext 2008 workshop on Collaboration and collective intelligence - WebScience '08  
Exploratory search opens new possibilities for employing social aspects for effective information retrieval.  ...  New challenges for advanced web search interfaces and visualization tools arise as user needs shift from traditional lookup tasks towards more open ended search activities collectively described as exploratory  ...  Furthermore, the trend towards more interaction and active (social) participation encourages the combination of approaches from human-computer interaction (HCI), information retrieval (IR) and adaptive  ...

Gary Marchionini
2006 Proceedings of the 8th ACM international workshop on Multimedia information retrieval - MIR '06  
In this paper, we describe the challenges of assessing human performance during video retrieval episodes and describe several measures of human performance that have been used in developing visual surrogates  ...  for the Open Video Digital Library (http://www.open-video.org).  ...  Evaluations of exploratory search must address the human factors (personal as well as global), the information content, and the retrieval system concurrently.  ...
