Semantic Wiki Search [chapter]

Peter Haase, Daniel Herzig, Mark Musen, Thanh Tran
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
However, while powerful query languages offer new opportunities for semantic search, the syntax of formal query languages is not adequate for end users.  ...  Users articulate their information need in keywords, which are translated into structured, conjunctive queries.  ...  This procedure starts from the keyword elements and iteratively explores the query space for all distinct paths beginning from these elements.  ...

External to internal search: Associating searching on search engines with searching on sites

Adan Ortiz-Cordova, Yanwu Yang, Bernard J. Jansen
2015 Information Processing & Management  
There are a total of 1,136,390 queries from all searches, of which 295,571 are external search queries and 840,819 are internal search queries.  ...  search queries, (2) Navigators (15%) with an external search query containing a URL component and then specific internal search queries, and (3) Shifters (15%) with a different, seemingly unrelated, query  ...  For example, a query such as cancion original de feliz cumplea (translation: original happy birthday song) is labeled as song (S) since it contains the term song.  ...

2010 IEEE Internet Computing  
The search result is a complex combination of several individual choices. Search computing involves four main concepts: resource framework, queries, query plans, and liquid interaction.  ...  However, none of these systems addresses the case in which a user performs a complex search process over different domains, possibly covered by distinct vertical search engines. 3 Users perform this type  ...  Acknowledgments The European Research Council (ERC) funds the SeCo project as part of its call for IDEAS Advanced Grants, a program dedicated to supporting investigation-driven frontier research.  ...

The parity search problem [article]

Christian Reiher
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Translated into the language of combinatorial search theory, this tells us that d n+O(1) queries suffice to identify up to d marked items from a totality of n items if the answers one gets are just whether  ...  an even or an odd number of marked elements has been queried, even if the search is performed non-adaptively.  ...  Introduction In a typical problem from combinatorial search theory a finite number of entities is given to you some of which are considered to be marked or defective and your task is to find out which  ...

Image Searching System

Eduard Yakubchykt, Lviv Polytechnic National University, Iryna Yurchak
2021 Advances in Cyber-Physical Systems  
Finding similar images on a visual sample is a difficult AI task, to solve which many works are devoted.  ...  Each pair always includes an image from the collection and a sample image that the user is looking for. The result of the comparison is a quantity called the visual relativity of the images.  ...  A timeweighted document is used to filter out unimportant tags from these images in the image store and provides a better search experience.  ...

Semantic Matching in Search

Hang Li, Jun Xu
2014 Foundations and Trends in Information Retrieval  
Relevance is the most important factor to assure users' satisfaction in search and the success of a search engine heavily depends on its performance on relevance.  ...  It has been observed that most of the dissatisfaction cases in relevance are due to term mismatch between queries and documents (e.g., query "ny times" does not match well with a document only containing  ...  This survey benefits a lot from the joint work with them. We thank the three anonymous reviewers, as well as Douglas W.  ...

Aggregated search

Arlind Kopliku, Karen Pinel-Sauvagnat, Mohand Boughanem
2014 ACM Computing Surveys  
Aggregated search represents a new class of approaches where the information is not only retrieved but also assembled.  ...  In this survey, we propose a simple analysis framework for aggregated search and an overview of existing work.  ...  Given a set of documents that match the query or queries derived from the initial question, QA approaches go within the documents to find and assemble answers. This task is not easy.  ...

Semantic Search: Reconciling Expressive Querying and Exploratory Search [chapter]

Sébastien Ferré, Alice Hermann
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, the LISQL query language generalizes existing semantic faceted search systems, and covers most features of SPARQL. A prototype, Sewelis (aka.  ...  Camelis 2), has been implemented, and a usability evaluation demonstrated that QFS retains the ease-of-use of faceted search, and enables users to build complex queries with little training.  ...  We would like to thank the 20 students, from the University of Rennes 1 and the INSA engineering school, for their volunteer participation to the usability evaluation.  ...

Image search by concept map

Hao Xu, Jingdong Wang, Xian-Sheng Hua, Shipeng Li
2010 Proceeding of the 33rd international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '10  
In the ranking process, by interpreting each textual concept as a set of representative visual instances, the concept map query is translated into a visual instance map, which is then used to evaluate  ...  To this end, we propose a new image search interface to enable users to formulate a query, called concept map, by intuitively typing textual queries in a blank canvas to indicate the desired spatial positions  ...  Specifically for a given task, the image database is obtained by querying a textbased image search engine using the keywords of the task.  ...

Semantic Web for Search [chapter]

Jessica Gronski
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Semantic Web data seems like a promising source of information for improving search.  ...  While there is some literature about how semantic data should be used to enhance search, there are no positive conclusions about the best approach.  ...  This data is distinct from ordinary HTML links as they originate from entities rather than web documents and thus the distinction between a informative link in a post and a spam link contained in a comment  ...

Semantic Search as Extractive Paraphrase Span Detection [article]

Jenna Kanerva, Hanna Kitti, Li-Hsin Chang, Teemu Vahtola, Mathias Creutz, Filip Ginter
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we approach the problem of semantic search by framing the search task as paraphrase span detection, i.e. given a segment of text as a query phrase, the task is to identify its paraphrase  ...  This demonstrates a strong advantage of modelling the task in terms of span retrieval, rather than sentence similarity.  ...  One task clearly requiring deep language understanding is semantic search, where the objective is to retrieve from a document those passages that match the search query in their meaning, rather than in  ...
