A survey of Web clustering engines

Claudio Carpineto, Stanislaw Osiński, Giovanni Romano, Dawid Weiss
2009 ACM Computing Surveys  
We discuss how to compare the retrieval effectiveness of a clustering engine to that of a plain search engine and how to compare different clustering engines, including an experimental study of the subtopic  ...  The concept (or entity) recognition that multiple search engines are working on (for finding e.g., people, products, books) also seems related to clustering of search results [Ye et al. 2003 ].  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We are very grateful to three anonymous reviewers for their constructive suggestions and comments.  ...

A methodology for engineering ontology acquisition and validation

Zhanjun Li, Maria C. Yang, Karthik Ramani
2008 Artificial intelligence for engineering design, analysis and manufacturing  
Current information retrieval approaches based on statistical methods and keyword matching are not effective in understanding the context of engineering content.  ...  A search system based on the EO and EL has been developed and tested. The retrieval performance test further justifies the effectiveness of the EO and EL as well as the ontology development method.  ...  In-Chul Jang, Jose Valdes-Gutierrez, and Chris Bence contributed to the acquisition of the engineering ontology.  ...

Engineering Privacy

S. Spiekermann, L.F. Cranor
2009 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
We use a three-layer model of user privacy concerns to relate them to system operations (data transfer, storage, and processing) and examine their effects on user behavior.  ...  In the second part of this paper, we develop guidelines for building privacy-friendly systems. We distinguish two approaches: "privacy-by-policy" and "privacy-by-architecture."  ...  DAAD19-02-I-0389 ("Perpetually Available and Secure Information Systems") to Carnegie Mellon University's CyLab and by the Transcoop programme of the Humboldt-Shiftung.  ...

Search Engines that Learn from Their Users

Anne Schuth
2016 SIGIR Forum  
Search engines are now the predominant instance of IR systems and in this thesis the terms "information retrieval" and "search" are interchangeable.  ...  Examples of common contexts would be common preceding queries, types of users or localization on a high enough granularity.  ...  In OpenSearch, our living labs setting, we focus exclusively on head queries for a number of reasons: 1. This allows us to evaluate experimental search systems on the same set of queries. 2.  ...
