Mining rich session context to improve web search

Guangyu Zhu, Gilad Mishne
2009 Proceedings of the 15th ACM SIGKDD international conference on Knowledge discovery and data mining - KDD '09  
In this paper, we expand the use of browsing information for web search ranking and other applications, with an emphasis on analyzing individual user sessions for creating aggregate models.  ...  Finally, we discuss novel applications of ClickRank in providing enriched user web search experience, highlighting the usefulness of our approach for non-ranking tasks.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank Benoit Dumoulin and other members of the Query Intent Modeling Team in Yahoo! Search and Yahoo! Research Barcelona for useful discussions.  ...

Social Search [chapter]

Peter Brusilovsky, Barry Smyth, Bracha Shapira
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Modern web search engines have evolved from their roots in information retrieval to developing new ways to cope with the unique nature of web search.  ...  In this chapter, we review recent research that aims to make search a more social activity by combining readily available social signals with various strategies for using these signals to influence or  ...  Once learned from data, click models can produce a data-informed ranking of web pages for a given query. The idea of learning a model of user search behavior was introduced by Agichtein et al. [6] .  ...

Contextual Search: A Computational Framework

Massimo Melucci
2012 Foundations and Trends in Information Retrieval  
Therefore, in this survey, we describe how statistical models can process contextual variables to infer the contextual factors underlying the current search context.  ...  Information Retrieval (IR) to design systems which can effectively and efficiently constrain search within the boundaries given by context, thus transforming classical search into contextual search.  ...  Sebastiani for inviting me to write this survey; Doug Oard for his great patience and encouragement; and three anonymous reviewers for their careful and thoughtful comments.  ...
