The Happy Searcher: Challenges in Web Information Retrieval [chapter]

Mehran Sahami, Vibhu Mittal, Shumeet Baluja, Henry Rowley
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Search has arguably become the dominant paradigm for finding information on the World Wide Web.  ...  Specifically, we examine issues of such as web graph analysis, statistical methods for inferring meaning in text, and the retrieval and analysis of newsgroup postings, images, and sounds.  ...  In addressing the problem of information retrieval on the web, there are a number of challenges in which Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques can be successfully brought to bear.  ...

Evaluating Search Results in Exploratory Search

Mohammed Najah Mahdi, Abdul Rahim Ahmad, Roslan Ismail
2018 International Journal of Engineering & Technology  
This plethora of information has, to a large extent constantly challenged researchers in seeking for ways of making the information easily accessible to end users in as convenient ways as possible.  ...  The volume of information available on the World Wide Web is quite significant.  ...  In sensibly addressing this challenge, it is sensible to expand the scope of the searcher and related documents retrieved for a query.  ...

The cascade of interactions in the digital library interface

Marcia J Bates
2002 Information Processing & Management  
This cascade of interactions culminates in the interface, where all the prior interactions have either worked to produce eective information retrieval or to produce a hodgepodge of system elements working  ...  Good design requires that these interactions be well understood and properly designed for the purposes of the information system in question.  ...  So, in sum, the Cascade Model is not a design-process model, a human±computer interaction model, an information retrieval model, an interaction in information retrieval model, nor a Web site design or  ...
