Designing the Structured Search Experience: Rethinking the Query-Builder Paradigm

Tony Russell-Rose, Farhad Shokraneh
2020 Weave: Journal of Library User Experience  
In this paper, we present a new approach in which users express concepts as objects on a visual canvas and manipulate them to articulate relationships.  ...  This offers a more intuitive user experience (UX) that eliminates many sources of error, makes the query semantics more transparent, and offers new ways to collaborate, share, and optimize search strategies  ...  If that transpires to be a practicable proposition, then such a development could have profound implications for the way in which people teach, learn, and apply professional search skills.  ...

Guided Interaction: Rethinking the Query-Result Paradigm

Arnab Nandi, H. V. Jagadish
2011 Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment  
In consequence, for many databases, far more time is spent by users formulating queries than by the system evaluating them. It stands to reason  ...  Many decades of research, coupled with continuous increases in computing power, have enabled highly efficient execution of queries on large databases.  ...  To this end, we propose a new paradigm, guided interaction, to solve the noted challenges, by using interaction to guide the user through the query formulation, query execution and result examination processes  ...

Using Linguistic Models for Image Retrieval [chapter]

Brian Zambrano, Rahul Singh, Bibek Bhattarai
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Experiments show the efficacy and promise of this approach which can play a significant role in applications varying from multimedia information management to web-based image search.  ...  This facilitates query-retrieval in context of the emergent nature of semantics that complex media, such as images have.  ...  Likewise, lowering this value will cause potentially new images to appear.  ...

Ten Years of Knowledge Harvesting: Lessons and Challenges

Gerhard Weikum, Johannes Hoffart, Fabian M. Suchanek
2016 IEEE Data Engineering Bulletin  
Automatically constructed knowledge bases -KB's for short -have become a powerful asset for search, analytics, recommendations, and data integration, with intensive use at big industrial stakeholders.  ...  Over the last ten years, knowledge harvesting has made tremendous progress, leveraging advances in scalable information extraction and the availability of curated knowledge-sharing sources such as Wikipedia  ...  This suggests alternative query formulations, which we call query relaxations. A good search interface should automatically generate one or more relaxations as needed.  ...

FOIOTI : an implementation of the conceptualist approach to Internet information retrieval

M. Weideman
2013 South African Journal of Libraries and Information Science  
A logical next step would be to use either a very specific single word, or more than one word as a search query.  ...  Other problems include a lack of clear search specification formulation and inefficient usage of time and computing power by loading and using one search engine at a time.  ...  ) OR (+science +formula) AND 'volume of a sphere' However, a recent study claimed to have found that' ... most people use few search terms, few modified queries, view few Web pages, and rarely use advanced  ...

Cognitive Elements of Human Decision Making [chapter]

Jens Pohl
2008 Studies in Computational Intelligence  
The complexity of the human cognitive system is evidenced by the large body of literature that describes problem-solving behavior and the relatively fewer writings that attempt to provide comprehensive  ...  The contributions of this chapter are confined to the identification of important elements of the problemsolving activity and exploration of how these elements might influence the design of a decision-support  ...  Queries that are formulated either by the user or generated automatically by a computer-based agent are channeled to a Search Strategy Generator.  ...

When search engines stopped being human: menu interfaces and the rise of the ideological nature of algorithmic search

2020 Internet Histories  
1990s, a transformation from human interfaces to menu interfaces in online search helped encourage and normalise algorithmic ideology at the expense of a more humanistic ideology of search connected to  ...  Based on a study of a broad corpus of archival materials in which online search appeared as a central object of description and discussion, it argues that the rise of menu interfaces in the 1980s encouraged  ...  Special thanks goes to the anonymous reviewers for their valuable comments on an earlier version of this article, and to Michael Stevenson for close reading the first draft, and highly valuable and constructive  ...

2012 Proceedings of the Symposium on Human-Computer Interaction and Information Retrieval - HCIR '12  
As storage continues to grow and costs decline, the incentives to carefully archive old versions of files diminish. It is therefore important to explore new and improved search tools.  ...  The most common approach is keyword search, though recalling effective keywords can be challenging, especially as repositories grow and information flows across projects.  ...  Users can also use Microsoft's "Advanced Query Syntax (AQS)" [1] to define and narrow searches.  ...

Reinventing Mobile Community Computing and Communication

Yann Busnel, Nuno Cruz, Denis Gillet, Adrian Holzer, Hugo Miranda
2013 2013 12th IEEE International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications  
In this paper, we claim that a fundamental paradigm shift in communication is required to allow such application to see the light of day.  ...  However, it is not hard to imagine advanced mobile social networking applications -SNAPPs for short -that could proactively assist users in everyday tasks, improving their quality of life.  ...  Other more complex relations involving queries and sub-queries have to be studied to avoid repeated evaluations.  ...

New grand challenge for multimedia information retrieval: bridging the utility gap

Alan Hanjalic
2012 International Journal of Multimedia Information Retrieval  
To pursue this challenge, we propose a utility-by-design approach, by which utility is targeted explicitly and embedded deep in the foundations of MIR solutions.  ...  The paper will first motivate this new MIR grand challenge and position it with respect to the current efforts in the field.  ...  For instance, a query formulated to encode a topic, such as court hearings, youth, politics or archaeology, should lead to a list of videos that treat relevant subjects.  ...
