IntenT5: Search Result Diversification using Causal Language Models [article]

Sean MacAvaney, Craig Macdonald, Roderick Murray-Smith, Iadh Ounis
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Across six standard evaluation benchmarks, we find that our method (which we call IntenT5) improves search result diversity and attains (and sometimes exceeds) the diversity obtained when using query suggestions  ...  Existing approaches often rely on massive query logs and interaction data to generate a variety of possible query intents, which then can be used to re-rank documents.  ...  Evaluation We evaluate the effectiveness of our approach on the TREC Web Track (WT) 2009-14 diversity benchmarks [8] [9] [10] [11] 13] , consisting of 300 topics and 1,090 sub-topics in total.  ...

The strange case of reproducibility versus representativeness in contextual suggestion test collections

Thaer Samar, Alejandro Bellogín, Arjen P. de Vries
2015 Information retrieval (Boston)  
The Contextual Suggestion (CS) TREC track provides an evaluation framework for systems that recommend items to users given their geographical context.  ...  The specific nature of this track allows the participating teams to identify candidate documents either from the Open Web or from the ClueWeb12 collection, a static version of the web.  ...  This work was carried out on the Dutch national e-infrastructure with the support of SURF Foundation.  ...

What Users See - Structures in Search Engine Results Pages [article]

Nadine Hoechstoetter, Dirk Lewandowski
2015 arXiv   pre-print
We define what elements the most popular web search engines use on their results pages (e.g., organic results, advertisements, shortcuts) and to which degree they are used for popular vs. rare queries.  ...  Findings include that search engines use quite different approaches to results pages composition and therefore, the user gets to see quite different results sets depending on the search engine and search  ...  The title and the description of recommended Web pages are very important for users to evaluate the results lists.  ...
