Mining acronym expansions and their meanings using query click log

Bilyana Taneva, Tao Cheng, Kaushik Chakrabarti, Yeye He
2013 Proceedings of the 22nd international conference on World Wide Web - WWW '13  
Our main insight is to leverage "co-clicks" in search engine query click log to mine expansions of acronyms.  ...  To support such online scenarios, we study the offline mining of acronyms and their meanings in this paper.  ...  Our main insight is that acronyms and their various expansions are captured in a search engine query click log.  ...

Analyzing and evaluating query reformulation strategies in web search logs

Jeff Huang, Efthimis N. Efthimiadis
2009 Proceeding of the 18th ACM conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '09  
In contrast, users often click the same result as their previous query or select no results when forming acronyms and reordering words.  ...  Certain strategies like add/remove words, word substitution, acronym expansion, and spelling correction are more likely to cause clicks, especially on higher ranked results.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would like to thank the anonymous reviewers, and Eytan Adar, Nicholas J. Belkin, Edie Rasmussen, Jacob O. Wobbrock for helpful comments on earlier drafts.  ...

Query Suggestion and Data Fusion in Contextual Disambiguation

Milad Shokouhi, Marc Sloan, Paul N. Bennett, Kevyn Collins-Thompson, Siranush Sarkizova
2015 Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '15  
We evaluate our context-sensitive suggestions against a state-of-the-art baseline using a click-based metric.  ...  The user's search context or background may provide information that disambiguates their information need in order to automatically predict and issue a more effective query.  ...  For instance, queries that are abbreviations and acronyms can be matched to their expanded forms by mining word associations in anchor text from a corpus and query reformulations from query logs [40]  ...

Entity Synonyms for Structured Web Search

Tao Cheng, Hady W. Lauw, Stelios Paparizos
2012 IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering  
We propose an offline, data-driven approach that mines query logs for instances where content creators and web users apply a variety of strings to refer to the same webpages.  ...  Therefore, recognizing the alternative ways people use to reference an entity, is crucial for structured web search.  ...  We used query and click logs from "Bing" Search that were available to us for the months of July to November 2008.  ...

BERT-based Acronym Disambiguation with Multiple Training Strategies [article]

Chunguang Pan, Bingyan Song, Shengguang Wang, Zhipeng Luo
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Although it is convenient to use acronyms, sometimes they could be difficult to understand. Identifying the appropriate expansions of an acronym is a practical task in natural language processing.  ...  Acronym disambiguation (AD) task aims to find the correct expansions of an ambiguous ancronym in a given sentence.  ...  There have been a few works (Nadeau and Turney 2005) on automatically mining acronym expansions by leveraging Web data (e.g. click logs, query sessions).  ...

2012 Proceedings of the fifth ACM international conference on Web search and data mining - WSDM '12  
Our findings demonstrate gains in retrieval performance for queries with high ambiguity, with particularly large improvements for acronym queries.  ...  We propose a generative model of relevance which can be used to infer the relevance of a document to a specific user for a search query.  ...  Acknowledgements Thanks to Dan Liebling and Josh Feng for assistance with data collection and classification.  ...

Extracting semantic relations from query logs

Ricardo Baeza-Yates, Alessandro Tiberi
2007 Proceedings of the 13th ACM SIGKDD international conference on Knowledge discovery and data mining - KDD '07
