Cognitive search intents hidden behind queries

Makoto P. Kato, Takehiro Yamamoto, Hiroaki Ohshima, Katsumi Tanaka
2014 Proceedings of the 23rd International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '14 Companion  
This study investigated query formulations by users with Cognitive Search Intents (CSI), which are needs for the cognitive characteristics of documents to be retrieved, e.g. comprehensibility, subjectivity  ...  We proposed an example-based method of specifying search intents to observe unbiased query formulations.  ...  On the other hand, experienced users do not usually input natural language queries into search engines. Thus, the way users formulate queries might be acquired through experience with Web searches.  ...

Markov Chain Based Query Classification for User Intent Image Search Engines

Thi Thi Zin, Pyke Tin, Hiromitsu Hama
2016 ICIC Express Letters  
Some experimental results are shown to capture user intents by using a set of queries submitted to the Web search engines.  ...  Today Web image search engines have well recognized that a challenging and difficult problem of determining the user intent of Web searches should be thoroughly investigated.  ...  provide the information that users required or user intent which users address behind the queries they input to the search engines.  ...

Query Reformulation for Task-Oriented Web Searches

Nikos Kirtsis, Sofia Stamou
2011 2011 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conferences on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology  
Query reformulations are presented to the user in order to select the one that best suits her search intention.  ...  Web searches are driven by information needs and intend the accomplishment of specific tasks.  ...  Among the benefits to understanding the tasks pursued via web searches is being able to automatically suggest query reformulations that encapsulate the query intentions.  ...

Intentions

Edith Law, Anton Mityagin, Max Chickering
2009 Proceedings of the 27th international conference extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems - CHI EA '09  
In this work, we present the design principles behind a new game called Intentions, which aims to collect data about the intent behind search queries.  ...  Knowing the intent of a search query allows for more intelligent ways of retrieving relevant search results.  ...  In a study of a very large query log with millions of queries [3] , it was shown that more than 80% of web queries are informational in intent.  ...

Characterizing Queries in Different Search Tasks

Jeonghyun Kim, Ahmet Can
2012 2012 45th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
The purpose of this study is to explore the characteristics of queries of varied search tasks driven by different user intents.  ...  The results indicate that there were statistical differences in query iteration, identical query, failed query, clickthrough query rate among different search tasks with different search intent.  ...  Previous studies focused heavily on inferring user intent behind each query instance, but couldn't prove how different user intents lead to different queries and the action following those queries.  ...

Improving search relevance for short queries in community question answering

Haocheng Wu, Wei Wu, Ming Zhou, Enhong Chen, Lei Duan, Heung-Yeung Shum
2014 Proceedings of the 7th ACM international conference on Web search and data mining - WSDM '14  
Existing methods mainly focus on long and syntactically structured queries. However, when an input query is short, the task becomes challenging, due to a lack information regarding user intent.  ...  In this paper, we mine different types of user intent from various sources for short queries. With these intent signals, we propose a new intent-based language model.  ...  The model measures the relevance between a short query and a candidate question based on not only the query itself but also the underlying intent hidden behind the query.  ...
