"Is Sven Seven?"

Nevena Dragovic, Ion Madrazo Azpiazu, Maria Soledad Pera
2016 Proceedings of the 39th International ACM SIGIR conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval - SIGIR '16  
The reasons for this include children's limited vocabulary, which makes it challenging to articulate information needs using short queries, or their tendency to create queries that are too long, which  ...  Initial experiments conducted using a sample of children queries validate the correctness of the proposed search intent module.  ...  Its goal is to transform an initial children query Q into Q , a query that captures the intended meaning of Q.  ...

Query Formulation Assistance for Kids

Jerry Alan Fails, Maria Soledad Pera, Oghenemaro Anuyah, Casey Kennington, Katherine Landau Wright, William Bigirimana
2019 Proceedings of the Interaction Design and Children on ZZZ - IDC '19  
Because children have different developmental needs than adults, these tools may not always adequately support their search for information.  ...  This calls for the examination of existing technologies in this area, to better understand what remains to be done when it comes to facilitating query-formulation tasks for young users.  ...  that they intend to search for on web-based interfaces.  ...

Interactive Search Interfaces for Young Children - The PuppyIR Approach

Andreas Lingnau, Ian Ruthven, Monica Landoni, Frans van der Sluis
2010 2010 10th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies  
Most Information Retrieval (IR) systems are designed for adults and unsuitable for children. In this paper we present an approach to provide appropriate IR interfaces for children.  ...  However, children's ability to use the Internet is severely hampered by the lack of appropriate search tools.  ...  search for information but also understand and handle retrieved information in an appropriate way.  ...

Recommendations to Enhance Children Web Searches

Shahrzad Karimi, Maria Soledad Pera
2015 ACM Conference on Recommender Systems  
We present the initial design and development of KidsQR, a query recommendation system tailored exclusively for children.  ...  KidsQR aids children in their quest for online information by considering children vocabulary, child-friendly phrases, and entities children are familiar with.  ...  Previous studies suggest that the relative performance of queries meant to retrieve information for children is poorer than the queries intending to retrieve content for nonchildren users [4] .  ...
