Improve Web Search Diversification with Intent Subtopic Mining [chapter]

Aymeric Damien, Min Zhang, Yiqun Liu, Shaoping Ma
2013 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
In this work, we aim to improve the performance of search results diversification by generating an intent subtopics list with fusion of multiple resources.  ...  Result diversification is usually adopted to deal with those queries, in which search engine tries to trade-off some relevancy for some diversity to improve user experience.  ...  In a future work, we would like to combine these data with document ranking and compare the results with some commercial search-engines results.  ...

Fusion helps diversification

Shangsong Liang, Zhaochun Ren, Maarten de Rijke
2014 Proceedings of the 37th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research & development in information retrieval - SIGIR '14  
A popular strategy for search result diversification is to first retrieve a set of documents utilizing a standard retrieval method and then rerank the results.  ...  Starting from the hypothesis that data fusion can improve performance in terms of diversity metrics, we examine the impact of standard data fusion methods on result diversification.  ...  In this paper we have adopted a different perspective on the search result diversification problem, based on data fusion.  ...

2018 Semantic Web Journal  
Knowledge bases are in wide-spread use for aiding tasks such as information extraction and information retrieval, where Web search is a prominent example.  ...  Therefore, data fusion is required in order to facilitate the use of markup data for KBA.  ...  In the context of the Semantic Web, previous works on data fusion can be classified into two classesheuristic-based and probability-based. Heuristic-based Methods.  ...

Diversity, Intent, and Aggregated Search

Maarten de Rijke
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 Australasian Document Computing Symposium on - ADCS '14

2012 Information retrieval (Boston)  
Experimental results show that the proposed subtopic-based diversification algorithm significantly outperforms the state-of-the-art models in the TREC09 and TREC10 Web Track diversity tasks.  ...  The results conclude that the subtopic mining technique with the up-to-date users' search query logs is the most effective way to generate the subtopics of a query, and the proposed subtopic-based diversification  ...  For the Zettair search engine, the language model (LM) and Okapi BM25 were employed.As shown in a major Web search engine as subtopics of a given topic and applied xQuAD for search result diversification  ...
