CKGSE: A Prototype Search Engine for Chinese Knowledge Graphs

Xiaxia Wang, Tengteng Lin, Weiqing Luo, Gong Cheng, Yuzhong Qu
2022 Data Intelligence  
To evaluate its usability, we implement a prototype with Chinese KGs crawled from OpenKG.CN and report some preliminary results and findings.  ...  Our system provides keyword search, KG snippet generation, KG profiling and browsing, all based on KGs' detailed, informative contents rather than their brief, limited metadata.  ...  Query-Relevant Snippet Generation. CKGSE adopts KSD [33] to extract a snippet from the original KG content.  ...

Solving the Search for Source Code

Kathryn T. Stolee, Sebastian Elbaum, Daniel Dobos
2014 ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology  
The results of the search are source code snippets that behave as specified. The proposed change, then, is from a syntactic query to a semantic query.  ...  While this form of query changes the search model from the common keyword query, it lets the programmer specify the desired behavior, without the need to know how to achieve a certain outcome, just what  ...  For example, the specification with select order takes more time than the one with select where order, as the expensive sorting constraints from order need to operate on the smaller filtered dataset generated  ...

Situating Search

Chirag Shah, Emily M. Bender
2022 ACM SIGIR Conference on Human Information Interaction and Retrieval  
Newly surfaced proposals that aim to use large language models to generate relevant information for a user's needs pose even greater threat to transparency, provenance, and user interactions in a search  ...  In this perspective paper we revisit the problem of search in the larger context of information seeking and argue that removing or reducing interactions in an effort to retrieve presumably more relevant  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We are grateful to the following distinguished scholars for reviewing early drafts of this paper and providing insightful comments: Nicholas J.  ...

User Behavior in Asynchronous Slow Search

Ryan Burton, Kevyn Collins-Thompson
2016 Proceedings of the 39th International ACM SIGIR conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval - SIGIR '16  
Additionally, we find that users continue to issue their own queries and examine additional documents while the slow search queries are processed in the background, and use the slow search feature more  ...  We conducted a between-subjects user study involving tasks that required multiple queries to complete, providing a Web search system that gave users the option to additionally issue asynchronous queries  ...  To do this, we estimated the number of snippets examined by using time on page from our baseline condition to determine the time to examine one snippet (8s), and used the time on page from the improved  ...

Supporting exploratory search tasks with interactive user modeling

Tuukka Ruotsalo, Kumaripaba Athukorala, Dorota Głowacka, Ksenia Konyushkova, Antti Oulasvirta, Samuli Kaipiainen, Samuel Kaski, Giulio Jacucci
2013 Proceedings of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Contrary to traditional interactions, such as query based search, query suggestions, or relevance feedback, interactive user modeling allows a user to perceive the state of the user model at all times  ...  The results show that interactive user modeling can help users to more effectively find relevant, novel and diverse information without compromises in task execution time.  ...  The data used in the experiments is derived from the Web of Science prepared by THOMSON REUTERS, Inc., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA: Copyright THOMSON REUTERS, 2011.  ...

Social tags in text and image search

Yong-Mi Kim
2010 Proceeding of the third symposium on Information interaction in context - IIiX '10  
Silverback usability testing software was used to obtain both screen and audio recordings of the searches and the post-search interview.  ...  This was not the case, as the skew towards using related tags was not as prominent in image searches compared to text searches.  ...  What type of content or information did you have in mind when you started your search? How did you intend to find these type of content or information? For initial query formulation:  ...
