Training on the Job: Learning While Searching in an Engineering Workplace

Dirk Ahlers, Mahsa Mehrpoor
2016 Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval  
We present some findings of user interaction with engineering domain retrieval systems where the searching as learning perspective can improve our understanding of information seeking behaviour.  ...  We discuss how searching as learning can help to understand searching in a larger information seeking, workspace, and learning environment, giving users the tools and understanding to become experts over  ...  Undoubtedly, a learning effect occurs when retrieved documents are studied.  ...

Do Hard Topics Exist? A Statistical Analysis

J. Shane Culpepper, Guglielmo Faggioli, Nicola Ferro, Oren Kurland
2021 Italian Information Retrieval Workshop  
In this work 1 , we explore the fundamental problem of studying the interaction components of an IR experimental collection.  ...  Recently there has been renewed interest in the notion of "query variations" which are essentially multiple user formulations for an information need.  ...  Our isolation of multiple formulations of topics has allowed us to study in detail the concept of "topic difficulty", which is construct of a specific retrieval configuration -the collection, the system  ...

IDEAIS: Smart Voice Assistants to Improve Interaction with SDIs [article]

Miguel Ángel Bernabé, Jacinto Estima, María Ester González, Carlos Granell, Carlos López-Vázquez, Miguel R. Luaces, Bruno Martins, Daniela Moctezuma, Diego Seco
2019 arXiv   pre-print
In this position paper, we present IDEAIS, a research network composed of multiple Ibero-American partners to address this usability issue through the use of Intelligent Systems, in particular Smart Voice  ...  This is partly due to the lack of usability of the geoportals through which the geographic information is accessed.  ...  In addition, the study of legal guarantees and responsibilities in the use of geographic information is important in the emergency domain, in combination with the creation of a standardized knowledge base  ...

Preface: Special Issue on Creativity Rethinks Science

Federico Avanzini, Giovanni De Poli, Davide Rocchesso
2012 Journal of New Music Research  
The article critically surveys the many different empirical bases used in studies of melodic similarity, and their implications in music information retrieval and query systems.  ...  The three remaining contributions present three case studies that share an interest in the theme of individual and social interaction with sound and music contents.  ...

Rethink Training of BERT Rerankers in Multi-Stage Retrieval Pipeline [article]

Luyu Gao, Zhuyun Dai, Jamie Callan
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Pre-trained deep language models~(LM) have advanced the state-of-the-art of text retrieval.  ...  One would expect a straightforward combination of both in a pipeline to have additive performance gain.  ...  Meanwhile, before this work, there are few existing work studying the interaction between different deep retrievers and reranker in pipelined re- trieval systems.  ...

What Happened in CLEF2009: Introduction to the Working Notes

Carol Peters
2009 Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum  
This is done through the organisation of annual evaluation campaigns in which a series of tracks designed to test different aspects of mono-and cross-language information retrieval (IR) are offered.  ...  The intention is to encourage experimentation with all kinds of multilingual information access -from the development of systems for monolingual retrieval operating on many languages to the implementation  ...  If we are to continue advancing the state-of-the-art in multilingual information access technologies, we now need to rethink and update this user model.  ...
