Information Retrieval with Verbose Queries

Manish Gupta, Michael Bendersky
2015 Proceedings of the 38th International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval - SIGIR '15  
In the remainder of this chapter, we will examine some of these research directions in depth. Acknowledgements We are indebted to many people for making this survey possible.  ...  Summary and Research Directions With the advent of various new ways of querying, there is a strong need to solve the problem of "answering verbose queries" more effectively.  ...  Agapie et al. [2013] found that a halo with color change around the query field also leads people to writing long queries. Their color change design was as follows.  ...

Creating and measuring the impact of a content strategy

Mircea-Alexandru ROȘU
2021 CES Working Papers  
Instead, every piece of content that gets published on the internet needs to align to a clearly laid out strategy which should enable the business to become more visible in the online environment.  ...  The first part of the paper emphasizes how the goals of the business must be clearly laid out in order to create a buyer persona.  ...  The opposite of the halo effect is the horns effect where, for example, the negative impression of the design of a can of soda might lead some people to believe the soda tastes bad.  ...

Mastering the art of war

Jeff Huang, Thomas Zimmermann, Nachiappan Nagapan, Charles Harrison, Bruce C. Phillips
2013 Proceedings of the SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI '13  
The data analysis is supplemented with a 70 person survey to explore how players' selfperceptions compare to the gameplay data; most survey responses align well with the data and provide insight into player  ...  The best players in the 7-month period, who we call "Master Blasters", have varied skill patterns that often run counter to the trends we see for typical players.  ...  We also thank the Halo Reach players who participated in our survey. Jeff Huang performed this work during a summer internship at Microsoft Research.  ...

Interactive Exploration of Implicit and Explicit Relations in Faceted Datasets

Jian Zhao, Christopher Collins, Fanny Chevalier, Ravin Balakrishnan
2013 IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics  
Due to the scale and complexity of data, robust conclusions are usually formed by coordinating many sub-regions in an information space, which leads to the approach of multi-focus visual exploration that  ...  For this knowledge extraction to be efficient, visual exploration of data is demanded in addition to fully automatic methods, because visual exploration can integrate the creativity, flexibility, and general  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Over the last six years, my doctoral study has been an invaluable experience in my life. It has been a challenging adventure, and I was fortune to receive support from many people.  ...

Strategies for Finding Government Information by Older People [chapter]

Paul Curzon, Suzette Keith, Judy Wilson, Gill Whitney
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we describe a pilot study to examine attitudes of older people to the internet in comparison to other ways of obtaining the same information.  ...  We do this in the light of psychological and neurological research on the effects of ageing on cognitive skills.  ...  However, this possibly extended the halo effect in so far as subjects seemed willing to persevere for longer periods than had been anticipated resulting in a successful outcome which possibly would not  ...

Wallop: designing social software for co-located social networks

S. Farnham, S.U. Kelly, W. Portnoy, J.L.K. Schwartz
2004 37th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, 2004. Proceedings of the  
Technology is increasingly being incorporated into people's day-to-day social relationships, particularly for people whose friendships occupy the center of their social lives.  ...  In response to our observations, we designed a sharing and communication application, Wallop, to enrich the co-located social group's planning and sharing around social events.  ...  We provide tools for allowing people to build conversations in the context of shared media on the assumption that people learn more about each other from "overhearing" such conversations than through more  ...

A Survey of Peer- to -Peer Overlay Schemes: Effectiveness, Efficiency and Security

Michele Amoretti
2010 Recent Patents on Computer Science  
In this paper we propose a categorization for the peer-to-peer overlay schemes and a survey of the most popular ones, comparing each other with respect to effectiveness and security.  ...  Search performance and consistency are two important measures for the sharing of dynamic contents (e.g. in P2P storage systems).  ...  The messages allowed in the Gnutella network can be grouped as follows: Group Membership (PING and PONG descriptors, for peer discovery queries/replies), Search (QUERY and QUERY HIT descriptors, for file  ...

Persuasive Design of Destination Web Sites: An Analysis of First Impression

Heejun Kim, Daniel R. Fesenmaier
2008 Journal of Travel Research  
However, in the absence or lack of information of travel Web sites, online travel planners often choose a search engine, formulate a query, and execute the search; they are then presented with the results  ...  To achieve this goal, it builds on research by Fogg (2003) and by Kim and Fesenmaier (2007) to assess the effect of the design factors of destination Web sites on first impression formation.  ...  Importantly, these reactions have a potentially long-lasting effect (i.e., halo effect) whereby they support the search for, or interpretation of, information in a way that confirm one's preconceptions  ...

Languages of Games and Play

Riemer Van Rozen
2020 ACM Computing Surveys  
We explore what informs the design and construction of good games in order to learn how to speed-up game development.  ...  In particular, we study to what extent languages, notations, patterns and tools, can offer experts theoretical foundations, systematic techniques and practical solutions they need to raise their productivity  ...  First, the query date limits the search results. Second, GS orders the results of the wide query to show older results first.  ...
