Influence of Timeline and Named-Entity Components on User Engagement [chapter]

Yashar Moshfeghi, Michael Matthews, Roi Blanco, Joemon M. Jose
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Results show that we can successfully learn a model that predicts all dimensions of user engagement and whether users will like the system or not.  ...  Using an interactive news retrieval system as a use case, in this paper we study the effect of timeline and named-entity components on user engagement.  ...  For example, for each dimension we computed Cronbach's alpha 8 to evaluate the reliability of the questions adopted for each dimension.  ...

Web searching interaction model based on user cognitive styles

Khamsum Kinley, Dian Tjondronegoro, Helen Partridge
2010 Proceedings of the 22nd Conference of the Computer-Human Interaction Special Interest Group of Australia on Computer-Human Interaction - OZCHI '10  
The preliminary findings reveal a number of cognitive factors, such as information searching processes, results evaluations and cognitive style, having an influence on users' Web searching behavior.  ...  Among these factors, the cognitive style of the user was observed to have a greater impact. Based on the key findings, a conceptual model of Web searching and cognitive styles is presented.  ...  The user is placed in the centre of the model to indicate the importance of a user in information retrieval.  ...
