Query completion without query logs for song search

Nitin Dua, Kanika Gupta, Monojit Choudhury, Kalika Bali
2011 Proceedings of the 20th international conference companion on World wide web - WWW '11  
We describe a new method for query completion for Bollywood song search without using query logs.  ...  Out of 100 test cases, our system could generate the correct suggestion for 91 queries.  ...  For song search, our system outperforms the query completion feature of the most popular search engines, even though it does not have access to any query log.  ...

Detecting candidate named entities in search queries

Areej Alasiry, Mark Levene, Alexandra Poulovassilis
2012 Proceedings of the 35th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '12  
present a novel method for detecting candidate NEs using grammar annotation and query segmentation with the aid of top-n snippets from search engine results and a web n-gram model, to accurately identify  ...  The information extraction task of Named Entities Recognition (NER) has been recently applied to search engine queries, in order to better understand their semantics.  ...  For example, the word 'lyrics' could be the context for song names; the same context appears in queries such as 'song lyrics', 'James Brown songs lyrics', and 'Music and Lyrics'.  ...

The MUSART Testbed for Query-by-Humming Evaluation

Roger B. Dannenberg, William P. Birmingham, George Tzanetakis, Colin Meek, Ning Hu, Bryan Pardo
2004 Computer Music Journal  
We have created a database and a software testbed for the systematic evaluation of various query-by-humming (QBH) search systems.  ...  As might be expected, different queries and different databases lead to wide variations in observed search precision.  ...  Thanks to Dominic Mazzoni and Mark Bartsch for initial implementation of some testbed components. Thanks to Chee Kiat, Crystal Fong, and David Murray for help with data collection and analysis.  ...

A study and comparison of multimedia Web searching: 1997-2006

Dian Tjondronegoro, Amanda Spink, Bernard J. Jansen
2009 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Searching for multimedia is an important activity for users of Web search engines.  ...  The study analyzes the (a) duration, size, and structure of Web search queries and sessions; (b) user demographics; (c) most popular multimedia Web searching terms; and (d) use of advanced Web search techniques  ...  For example, "im" could refer to "I'm okay" or other song title which has the words "I'm," but without the existence of other clarifying terms, an assumption cannot be made.  ...

Linking external and internal search

Adan Ortiz-Cordova, Bernard J. Jansen
2014 Proceedings of the extended abstracts of the 32nd annual ACM conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI EA '14  
The three major searching strategies are Explorers (47%, a broad query for external search and then multiple broad queries during internal search), Navigators (16%, a navigational query for external search  ...  and then specific queries during internal search), and Acquirers (15%, transaction queries for both external and internal search).  ...  For example, queries on the major search engine entail download free music and the internal search queries were specific artist or song names.  ...

Interpreting keyword queries over web knowledge bases

Jeffrey Pound, Alexander K. Hudek, Ihab F. Ilyas, Grant Weddell
2012 Proceedings of the 21st ACM international conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '12  
We mine frequent query structures from a Web query log and map these structures into a reference knowledge base.  ...  Many keyword queries issued to Web search engines target information about real world entities, and interpreting these queries over Web knowledge bases can often enable the search system to provide exact  ...  For example, consider a user searching for "songs by jimi hendrix."  ...

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  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank www.BuenaMusica.com for allowing us to implement our tracker and to have access to their database.  ...

Recommendation in Web Search Using Similar Query Mining with Big Data

2016 Revista Técnica de la Facultad de Ingeniería Universidad del Zulia  
In this paper, a novel query suggestion model is proposed. It mines similar queries in similar query sessions from search engine logs and re-ranks them.  ...  The queries submitted to web search engines are often short. Consequently, the search intents are obscure and hard to understand in the systems.  ...  These methods help search engines understand their intents by extending search queries or suggesting relevant search terms (Dou, Song and Wen, 2007) .  ...

Frequency-based constraint relaxation for private query processing in cloud databases

Junpei Kawamoto, Patricia L. Gillett
2014 2014 IEEE 27th Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering (CCECE)  
We introduce a new definition of privacy based on query frequencies, as well as a frequency-based constraint relaxation methodology for private queries.  ...  We introduce a weaker privacy condition which ensures that search intentions are hidden within a portion of the database, as opposed to ordinary private queries which hide search intentions among all data  ...  We use the Last.fm 1K data set 2 which is a query log from the Last.fm music service. The dataset contains 992 users, 1 084 871 songs, and 19 150 868 queries.  ...

Query suggestions in the absence of query logs

Sumit Bhatia, Debapriyo Majumdar, Prasenjit Mitra
2011 Proceedings of the 34th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in Information - SIGIR '11  
However, for customized search systems in the enterprise domain, intranet search, or personalized search such as email or desktop search or for infrequent queries, query logs are either not available or  ...  We propose a probabilistic mechanism for generating query suggestions from the corpus without using query logs. We utilize the document corpus to extract a set of candidate phrases.  ...  without the aid of query logs.  ...

Analyzing URL queries

Wei Meng Lee, Mark Sanderson
2010 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
The study made use of a search log from which URL queries were identified and selected for both qualitative and quantitative analyses. It was found that URL queries accounted for ∼17% of the sample.  ...  There were statistically significant differences between URL queries and non-URL queries in the following attributes: mean query length; mean number of tokens per query; and mean number of clicks per query  ...  Acknowledgment We thank the employees of Microsoft Research who made time to make their search log available to us, without which we could not have conducted this research.  ...
