Challenging conventional assumptions of automated information retrieval with real users: Boolean searching and batch retrieval evaluations

William Hersh, Andrew Turpin, Susan Price, Dale Kraemer, Daniel Olson, Benjamin Chan, Lynetta Sacherek
2001 Information Processing & Management  
Our results showed that Boolean and natural language searching achieved comparable results and that the results from batch evaluations were not comparable to those obtained in experiments with real users  ...  We challenged these assumptions in the Text Retrieval Conference (TREC) interactive track, with real users following a consensus protocol to search for an instance recall task.  ...  The results in Table 4 also show positive and negative associations of search success with various user attributes.  ...

Attributional style of emotions and its relationship with users' search behaviour

Hassan Behzadi, Azam Sanatjoo
2018 Journal of information science  
Results showed that the majority of the users attributed their failure and success in information retrieval to internal causes.  ...  Research showed that individuals who attribute their emotions to internal factors are more satisfied with their search.  ...  Also, positive mood was found to be associated with fewer search activities (e.g. fewer visited websites and reformulated queries) while the negative mood was associated with increased search activities  ...

Achieving Content-User Synergy in MPEG-7

Harry Agius, Marios C. Angelides
2007 Second International Workshop on Semantic Media Adaptation and Personalization (SMAP 2007)  
Existing multimedia information retrieval systems provide users with insufficient support for efficient searching for and browsing in multimedia content.  ...  Furthermore, we propose a method of faceted browser adaptation with support for dynamic facet generation based on an automatically acquired user model.  ...  Most existing search and sharing systems, such as Flickr, Google or MSN Live Search, use either keyword/tag-based search or similarity search with some sample images (based on low-level image properties  ...

Playing by the rules

Youngho Kim, Ahmed Hassan, Ryen W. White, Yi-Min Wang
2013 Proceedings of the sixth ACM international conference on Web search and data mining - WSDM '13  
Then, association rules are learned by exploiting the FP-growth algorithm and decision trees using underperforming query examples.  ...  The method first generates query attributes using sources such as topics, concepts (entities), and keywords in queries.  ...  Methods for doing this typically correlate users' search behavior with their insitu self-reporting [16] or judgments of search success provided by expert judges [18] [22] .  ...

Data Lake Organization [article]

Fatemeh Nargesian, Ken Q. Pu, Bahar Ghadiri Bashardoost, Erkang Zhu, Renée J. Miller
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We present a new probabilistic model of how users interact with an organization and define the likelihood of a user finding a table using the organization.  ...  In addition, in our study, 42% of users preferred the use of navigation and 58% preferred keyword search, suggesting these are complementary and both useful modalities for data discovery in data lakes.  ...  We have also conducted a user study where participants use our system and a keyword search engine to perform the same set of tasks.  ...

Determinants of Success of Inpatient Clinical Information Systems: A Literature Review

M. J. van der Meijden
2003 JAMIA Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association  
Complete refusal of users to use a system is certainly a failure, but often success remains undefined.  ...  Our objectives were to identify attributes that were used to assess the success of such systems and to test the ability of a framework developed by Delone and McLean for management information systems  ...  Within each category several attributes could contribute to success. 1 The information processing system itself is assessed with system quality attributes (e.g., usability, accessibility, ease of use  ...
