Efficient interactive query expansion with complete search

Holger Bast, Debapriyo Majumdar, Ingmar Weber
2007 Proceedings of the sixteenth ACM conference on Conference on information and knowledge management - CIKM '07  
We present an efficient realization of the following interactive search engine feature: as the user is typing the query, words that are related to the last query word and that would lead to good hits are  ...  An efficient solution for the latter is provided by the CompleteSearch engine, with which we have integrated the proposed feature.  ...  EXPERIMENTS We integrated the described feature with the Complete-Search engine, and measured its efficiency on two query sets.  ...

Efficient query construction for large scale data

Elena Demidova, Xuan Zhou, Wolfgang Nejdl
2013 Proceedings of the 36th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '13  
We also introduce a search mechanism to enable efficient exploration of query interpretation spaces over large scale data.  ...  This paper presents a set of techniques to boost the scalability of interactive query construction, from the perspective of both, user interaction cost and performance.  ...  As mentioned in Problem 2, Section 2.2, the existing approaches to interactive query construction and schema-based database keyword search in general require a complete materialization of the query interpretation  ...

A Survey of Query Auto Completion in Information Retrieval

Fei Cai, Maarten de Rijke
2016 Foundations and Trends in Information Retrieval  
We also devote a chapter to efficiency and a chapter to presentation and interaction aspects of query auto completion.  ...  In this survey, we review work on query auto completion that has been published before 2016. We focus mainly on web search and provide a formal definition of the query auto completion problem.  ...  of query completions and can be determined by tracking a user's interactions with the search system.  ...

Effective and efficient user interaction for long queries

Giridhar Kumaran, James Allan
2008 Proceedings of the 31st annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '08  
We demonstrate how user interaction can be used to achieve this improvement. Most interaction techniques present users with a fixed number of options for all queries.  ...  Previous algorithms supporting interactive reduction and expansion are exponential in nature.  ...  Another 14 (10+4) of them would have been difficult for a human to come up with without a complete understanding of how the underlying search engine works.  ...

Personalized Concept-Based Search and Exploration on the Web of Data Using Results Categorization [chapter]

Melike Sah, Vincent Wade
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We also support interactive personalization; when the user clicks on a result, within the interacted lens, relevant categories and results are included using results re-ranking and query expansion.  ...  Within the selected concept lens; more relevant results are included using results re-ranking and query expansion, as well as relevant concept lenses are suggested to support results exploration.  ...  Moreover, when the user interacts with the results, result re-ranking, query expansion and concept lenses suggestions are provided.  ...

Hierarchical presentation of expansion terms

Hideo Joho, Claire Coverson, Mark Sanderson, Micheline Beaulieu
2002 Proceedings of the 2002 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '02  
Different presentations of candidate expansion terms have not been f ,~lly explored in interactive query expansion (IQE).  ...  This shows that users of the hierarchy can complete the expansion task in less time and with fewer terms over those using the lists.  ...  Following the completion of the expansion tasks by all the participants, selected expansion terms were added to the initial query for each topic, and the search was re-run with the expanded queries.  ...

2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we present NewsFlash, an adaptive search system that assists a searcher to efficiently search a library of stored TV news reports.  ...  We evaluate the worth of our approach with real searchers and realistic information seeking scenarios.  ...  We proposed a means of extracting and weighting terms for implicit query expansion during the interaction with the results of a multimedia search system.  ...

An end user evaluation of query formulation and results review tools in three medical meta-search engines

Gondy Leroy, Jennifer Xu, Wingyan Chung, Shauna Eggers, Hsinchun Chen
2007 International Journal of Medical Informatics  
Methods: We compared three medical search engines with support tools that require more or less effort from users to form a query and evaluate results.  ...  Fewer searches were needed and more documents were found per search when both query reformulation and result review tools dynamically adjust to the user query.  ...  In response to this problem, query expansion, manual or automated, can be used. With manual, i.e., interactive query expansion, users themselves indicate which terms should be used for expansion.  ...

2009 2009 Sixth International Conference on Information Technology: New Generations  
These are used to refine search queries and improve both the search results for a user as well as their search experience.  ...  Contextual retrieval is a critical technique for today's search engines in terms of facilitating queries and returning relevant information.  ...  These terms are added to an existing query either by the user, known as interactive query expansion (IQE), or by the retrieval system, known as automatic query expansion (AQE).  ...

Examining the effectiveness of real-time query expansion

Ryen W. White, Gary Marchionini
2007 Information Processing & Management  
Interactive query expansion (IQE) (c.f. Efthimiadis, 1996) is a potentially useful technique to help searchers formulate improved query statements, and ultimately retrieve better search results.  ...  To investigate how the technique is used -and when it may be useful -we conducted a user study comparing three search interfaces: a baseline interface with no query expansion support; an interface that  ...  This modification can occur interactively with searcher participation i.e., interactive query expansion (IQE), or automatically without searcher involvement i.e., automatic query expansion (AQE).  ...

Efficient Approach of Patent Search Paradigm
english

Haritha.V, Dr. A.Senthil Kumar
2015 International Journal of Innovative Research in Computer and Communication Engineering  
Automatic error correction, topicbased query suggestion, and query expansion, are the three effective techniques that we have proposed to improve the usability of patent search.  ...  Finally, we combine the answers of each partition and generate top-k answers of the patent-search query. Thus it produces more pertinent answers through sophisticated graphical user interaction.  ...  Query expansion can recommend synonyms and those pertinent keywords of query keywords which are in the same concept with query keywords.  ...

Designing phrase builder

Tim Paek, Bongshin Lee, Bo Thiesson
2009 Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices and Services - MobileHCI '09  
As users enter web queries, real-time query expansion (RTQE) interfaces offer suggestions based on an index garnered from query logs.  ...  In this paper, we introduce Phrase Builder, an RTQE interface that reduces keystrokes by facilitating the selection of individual query words and by leveraging back-off query techniques to offer completions  ...  With interactive query expansion, users participate in the selection of terms for the initial and/or subsequent queries [11] .  ...
