Evaluating search systems using result page context

Peter Bailey, Nick Craswell, Ryen W. White, Liwei Chen, Ashwin Satyanarayana, S. M.M. Tahaghoghi
2010 Proceeding of the third symposium on Information interaction in context - IIiX '10  
We introduce a method for evaluating the relevance of all visible components of a Web search results page, in the context of that results page.  ...  Contrary to Cranfield-style evaluation methods, our approach recognizes that a user"s initial search interaction is with the result page produced by a search system, not the landing pages linked from it  ...  The experiments demonstrate the value in considering the result page context in search system evaluation. Most experiments scraped the search results from the Google, Yahoo!  ...

DJINN: Implementation and evaluation of implicit social bookmarking paradigm

Bruno Merlin, Cleidson de Souza
2011 Journal of Applied Computing Research  
Our approach allows a user to implicitly contribute to a social bookmarking system and benefit from other user searches, therefore improving the accuracy of results of web searches.  ...  We conclude with a discussion of our results and directions for future work.  ...  Therefore, the results of this experiment motivated us to perform a second evaluation.  ...

Searching the wikipedia with contextual information

Antti Ukkonen, Carlos Castillo, Debora Donato, Aristides Gionis
2008 Proceeding of the 17th ACM conference on Information and knowledge mining - CIKM '08  
By associating a context to the query terms, the search results of a search initiated in a particular page can be made more relevant.  ...  The experiments indicate that the proposed method considerably improves results obtained by a more traditional approach that does not take the context into account.  ...  By attaching a context to the query terms, the search results of a search initiated in a particular page can be made more relevant, for example, the context page can be used for disambiguation.  ...

Topic Pages: An Alternative to the Ten Blue Links

Niranjan Balasubramanian, Silviu Cucerzan
2010 2010 IEEE Fourth International Conference on Semantic Computing  
Automatic and manual evaluations on biographical topics show that topic pages built by our system compare favorably to regular Web search results and to MDS-style summaries of the Web results on all metrics  ...  We investigate the automatic generation of topic pages as an alternative to the current Web search paradigm.  ...  Clearly, the Web search engines are not optimized for this type of evaluation and the MDS systems are not well-suited for the task of summarizing Web search results.  ...

Further Experiments on Collaborative Ranking in Community-Based Web Search

Jill Freyne, Barry Smyth, Maurice Coyle, Evelyn Balfe, Peter Briggs
2004 Artificial Intelligence Review  
In this paper we describe a novel approach to using context in Web search that seeks to personalize the results of a generic search engine for the needs of a specialist community of users.  ...  In particular we describe two separate evaluations in detail that demonstrate how the collaborative search method has the potential to deliver significant search-performance benefits to endusers while  ...  These techniques attempt to use the results of a search as the basis for context assessment, extracting useful context terms that can then be used to supplement the user's original query.  ...

Context representation for web search results

Jesús Vegas, Fabio Crestani, Pablo de la Fuente
2007 Journal of information science  
In Web searching, context can help assess the relevance of a Web page by showing how the page is related to other pages in the same Web site, for example.  ...  The results of an initial evaluation shows that this visualisation technique helps the user navigate large Web sites and find useful information in an effective way, without increasing the cognitive load  ...  Obviously, if the system is displaying to the user the results of a query evaluation, then f relevance is used.  ...

2022 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems Extended Abstracts  
To enable our study, we implemented a CARS that supports web-based search by recommending users a link using context such as browsing history.  ...  Embedding context-awareness allows recommender systems to use context information around the user, situation, and system to adapt and provide more efficient, relevant, and personalized recommendations.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We acknowledge and thank Yadi Qian for her help in initial design of the interface used in the study. We thank all the participants who took part in the study.  ...

Information overload in non-visual web transaction

Jalal Mahmud
2007 Proceedings of the 9th international ACM SIGACCESS conference on Computers and accessibility - Assets '07  
An interesting idea is to use context surrounding a link to identify relevant information on the next Web page.  ...  Preliminary results based on my system incorporating this idea, show a lot of promise in combating the information overload problem encountered by visually disabled individuals when they do transactions  ...  The evaluation result of these algorithms exhibit reasonably high precision and recall (see [4] for evaluation result of context analysis).  ...

A Categorization Scheme for Semantic Web Search Engines

K.S. Esmaili, H. Abolhassani
2006 IEEE International Conference on Computer Systems and Applications, 2006.  
We also propose some factors to evaluate systems in each category.  ...  Semantic web search engines are evolving and many prototype systems and some implementation have been developed. However, there are some different views on what a semantic search engine should do.  ...  The most important tool in semantic web for improving search results is context concept and its correspondence with Ontologies. This type of search engines uses such ontological definitions.  ...
