Overview of iCLEF 2008: Search Log Analysis for Multilingual Image Retrieval [chapter]

Julio Gonzalo, Paul Clough, Jussi Karlgren
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Organizers provided a default multilingual search system which accessed images from Flickr, with the whole iCLEF experiment run as an online game.  ...  We chose Flickr, a large-scale, web-based image database based on a large social network of WWW users sharing over two billion images, with the potential for offering both challenging and realistic multilingual  ...  Search interface We designed the so-called Flickling interface to provide a basic cross-language search front-end to Flickr.  ...

Users' seeking behavior and multilingual image tags

Miguel E. Ruiz, Pok Chin
2010 Proceedings of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
The main goal of the study is to identify the challenges that users face when they search for images annotated in languages other than English.  ...  This has lead to the creation of Internet services such as Flickr that allow users to post their own pictures and tag them with the purpose of sharing them with friends and displaying their work in a public  ...  To accomplish this goal the organizers made available a system called Flickling which implements a multilingual interface for accessing Flickr images.  ...

Users' Image Seeking Behaviour in Multilingual Environments: Experience in Combining Qualitative and Quantitative Data

Evgenia Vassilakaki, R. J. Hartley, Frances Johnson, Dave Randall
2010 Qualitative and Quantitative Methods in Libraries  
The efficient development of such systems depends greatly on gaining a better insight into users' interactions and search behaviours in multilingual environments.  ...  The volume of information available on the Web in various languages and the growing number of the non-English native speaking users generate a need for developing and providing Cross Language Information  ...  This study adopted the FlickLing Interface, a multilingual search interface for the well-known web application Flickr as the test object.  ...

Users' Image Seeking Behavior in a Multilingual Tag Environment [chapter]

Miguel E. Ruiz, Pok Chin
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The face to face interviews also give some feedback for improving the current Flickling interface, particularly the addition of a spell checker mechanism and the improvement of the multilingual translation  ...  The study includes two methods of data collection: an online survey and a face to face interview that included a search task using Flickling.  ...  the task of known-item search in a multilingual environment.  ...

Log Analysis of Multilingual Image Searches in Flickr [chapter]

Víctor Peinado, Julio Gonzalo, Javier Artiles, Fernando López-Ostenero
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we summarise our analysis of the large log of multilingual image searches in Flickr provided to iCLEF 2008 participants.  ...  We have studied (a) correlations between the language skills of searchers in the target language and other session parameters, such as success (was the image found?)  ...  Flickr services suggest new terms related to a given query and FlickLing allows to use these terms to launch a new query or to refine a previous one.  ...

The use of grounded theory in identifying the user experience during search

Evgenia Vassilakaki, Frances Johnson
2015 Library & Information Science Research  
Observational, cognitive and affective data were collected while users searched for images in a multilingual environment.  ...  Grounded theory offers a useful method for gaining an understanding of the context of the user experience when searching on an experimental multilingual image retrieval system.  ...  The system This study used FlickLing, a basic cross-language search front-end to the well-known web application Flickr, developed for user behaviour experiments in the interactive CLEF track (iClef track  ...

Ontology-based Multilingual Search in Recommendation Systems

2016 Acta Polytechnica Hungarica  
Multilingual Movie Recommendation System (MMRS) for searching as a case of study is developed. In this system, we illustrate a more comfortable and flexible implementation.  ...  In these systems, it is difficult to search a specific value (e.g., movie artist, movie title in movie domain) by using native language.  ...  Each language is built as a multilingual onlology to map corresponding terms. A multilingual search model for Flickr was proposed by Peinado et al. [7] and they called it FlickLing.  ...
