SEARCHING FOR EXPLANATORY WEB PAGES USING AUTOMATIC QUERY EXPANSION

Manabu Tauchi, Nigel Ward
2007 Computational intelligence  
For such problems automatic query expansion, also known as pseudo-feedback, is often effective.  ...  Abstract: When one tries to use the Web as a dictionary or encyclopedia, entering some single term into a search engine, the highly-ranked pages in the result can include irrelevant or useless sites.  ...  Acknowledgements: We thank Minoru Terada, Kazutaka Maruyama, and an anonymous referee for support and advice.  ...

Finding explanations online: Easy queries AND trustworthy answers

Michael Buckland, Ray Larson, Ryan Shaw
2009 Proceedings of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Web search engines provide easy access to a huge range of web-accessible resources but the most trustworthy explanations are often in hard-to-search resources in the deep web.  ...  The literature on information literacy reflects widespread concern that people tend not to use complex online digital versions of traditional reference works and instead depend heavily on easy-to-use resources  ...  -50027-07 "Context and Relationships: Ireland and Irish Studies," jointly funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  ...

Towards Supporting Exploratory Search over the Arabic Web Content: The Case of ArabXplore

Al-Agha Iyad, Abed Ahmed
2020 Journal of Information Technology Management  
Several efforts have been proposed to support exploratory search on the web by using query expansion, faceted search, or supplementary information extracted from external knowledge resources.  ...  However, these solutions are not well explored for the general web search in an open-domain setting.  ...  Focalized search refers to searching the web for an exactly known target.  ...

Identifying comparable entities on the web

Alpa Jain, Patrick Pantel
2009 Proceeding of the 18th ACM conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '09  
Web search engines are often presented with user queries that involve comparisons of real-world entities.  ...  With this in mind, we present an initial step of mining comparable entities from sources of information available to a large-scale Web search engine, namely, search query logs and documents from a Web  ...  As an example, Table 2 shows examples of errornous facts for the two main sources, namely, Web pages and search query logs.  ...

Report on the TREC-8 Experiment: Searching on the Web and in Distributed Collections

Jacques Savoy, Justin Picard
1999 Text Retrieval Conference  
The Internet paradigm permits information searches to be made across wide-area networks where information is contained in web pages and/or whole document collections such as digital libraries.  ...  Consequently, in this TREC experiment we investigated two questions related to information searches on the web or in digital libraries: (1) an analysis of the impact of hyperlinks in improving retrieval  ...  Buckley from SabIR for giving us the opportunity to use the SMART system, without which this study could not have been conducted.  ...

Social Search [chapter]

Peter Brusilovsky, Barry Smyth, Bracha Shapira
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
For more information, please see the item record link above. Abstract. Today, most people find what they are looking for online by using search engines such as Google, Bing, or Baidu.  ...  Modern web search engines have evolved from their roots in information retrieval to developing new ways to cope with the unique nature of web search.  ...  The anchor text inside Web pages have also been used for AQE and specifically for for query refinement (via expansion or substitution of terms) as suggested by Kraft and Zien [119] , and as an alternative  ...

Enriching Thesauri with Hierarchical Relationships by Pattern Matching in Dictionaries [chapter]

Lourdes Araujo, José R. Pérez-Agüera
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The results of these experiments have revealed a clear improvement on the performance. keywords: automatic thesaurus extraction, information retrieval, query expansion, pattern matching, dictionary Supported  ...  This kind of patterns are automatically extracted for the dictionary entries by means of stochastic techniques.  ...  For query expansion we use the method proposed by Qiu y Frei [14] , which selects expansion terms according to their similarity with all query terms.  ...

Transparent Queries

Jack Muramatsu, Wanda Pratt
2001 Proceedings of the 24th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '01  
We conducted a user study to gain a better understanding of users' knowledge of and reactions to the operation of several query transformations that web search engines automatically employ.  ...  Typically, commercial Web search engines provide very little feedback to the user concerning how a particular query is processed and interpreted.  ...  We chose to focus on Term suffix expansion, a variant of stemming, because it is one of the few automatic stemming-like processes currently used by web search engines.  ...
