Learning to shorten query sessions

Cristina Ioana Muntean, Franco Maria Nardini, Fabrizio Silvestri, Marcin Sydow
2013 Proceedings of the 22nd International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '13 Companion  
We propose the use of learning to rank techniques to shorten query sessions by maximizing the probability that the query we predict is the "final" query of the current search session.  ...  Such a tool becomes advantageous when the number of queries in session is rather small. In conclusion, we used learning to rank for shortening query sessions.  ...  In this paper, we go a step beyond query recommendations, by proposing a way to shorten query sessions.  ...

A reinforcement learning based distributed search algorithm for hierarchical peer-to-peer information retrieval systems

Haizheng Zhang, Victor Lesser
2007 Proceedings of the 6th international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '07  
In these approaches, agents depend on the content similarity between incoming queries and their direct neighboring agents to direct the distributed search sessions.  ...  In this paper, an online reinforcement-learning based approach is developed to take advantage of the dynamic run-time characteristics of P2P IR systems as represented by information about past search sessions  ...  The goal of the learning algorithm, even though it consumes some network bandwidth, is to shorten the routing time so that more queries are processed per time unit while at the same time finding more relevant  ...

Parameter Learning in Probabilistic Databases: A Least Squares Approach [chapter]

Bernd Gutmann, Angelika Kimmig, Kristian Kersting, Luc De Raedt
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Probabilistic databases compute the success probabilities of queries. We introduce the problem of learning the parameters of the probabilistic database ProbLog.  ...  Given the observed success probabilities of a set of queries, we use a least squares approach to compute the probabilities attached to facts that have a low approximation error on the training data as  ...  ProbLog has been designed to support life scientists that mine a large network of biological entities in interactive querying sessions..  ...

Boosting cross-media retrieval via visual-auditory feature analysis and relevance feedback

Hong Zhang, Junsong Yuan, Xingyu Gao, Zhenyu Chen
2014 Proceedings of the ACM International Conference on Multimedia - MM '14  
There are abundant correlations among heterogeneous low-level media content, which makes it challenging to query cross-media data effectively.  ...  How to learn comprehensive high-level semantics from different types of data and enable efficient crossmedia retrieval becomes an emerging hot issue.  ...  Furthermore, we propose short-term learning within a single query session and long-term learning over the course of many query sessions for performance optimization.  ...
