QR2: A Third-party Query Reranking Service Over Web Databases [article]

Yeshwanth D. Gunasekaran, Abolfazl Asudeh, Sona Hasani, Nan Zhang, Ali Jaoua, Gautam Das
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Despite the extensive efforts on designing better ranking mechanisms, in practice, many such databases fail to address the diverse and sometimes contradicting preferences of users.  ...  In this paper, we present QR2, a third-party service that uses nothing but the public search interface of a web database and enables the on-the-fly processing of queries with any user-specified ranking  ...  Any findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the sponsors listed above.  ...

Understanding Intrinsic Diversity in Web Search

Karthik Raman, Paul N. Bennett, Kevyn Collins-Thompson
2014 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
However, a significant fraction of user queries are part of more complex tasks [Jones and Klinkner 2008] which span multiple queries across one or more search sessions Kotov et al. 2011 ].  ...  An ideal search engine would not only retrieve relevant results for a user's particular query but also be able to identify when the user is engaged in a more complex task and aid the user in completing  ...  Ultimately our goal is to enable a search engine to customize the search results for intrinsic diversity only when appropriate, while providing at least the same level of relevance on tasks predicted to  ...

A Personalized Graph-Based Document Ranking Model Using a Semantic User Profile [chapter]

Mariam Daoud, Lynda Tamine, Mohand Boughanem
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The overload of the information available on the web, held with the diversity of the user information needs and the ambiguity of their queries have led the researchers to develop personalized search tools  ...  Results show the effectiveness of our personalized graph-based ranking model compared to Yahoo 1 search results.  ...  As our approach is based on personalizing search across sessions defined by a sequence of related queries, we have selected 25 user search sessions for all the 10 users as follows: -Each session contains  ...

, personalization, diversification, and faceted search.  ...  Documents no longer exist on their own; they are connected to other documents, they are associated with users and their position in a social network, and they can be mapped onto a variety of ontologies  ...  Additionally, the idea of providing a lower-level API for a retrieval system (potentially giving developers the ability to produce their own reranked results) was floated as a way to spawn innovation.  ...

From query to question in one click

2013 Proceedings of the 22nd international conference on World Wide Web - WWW '13  
Years of research focused on providing the best user experience for the data available to the search engine.  ...  In Web search, users may remain unsatisfied for several reasons: the search engine may not be effective enough or the query might not reflect their intent.  ...  We limited ourselves to the 3 best suggestions as this seems to be a reasonable size of a list to be shown to users, be it on the search result page or on the CQA site itself.  ...

Using web-graph distance for relevance feedback in web search

Sergei Vassilvitskii, Eric Brill
2006 Proceedings of the 29th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '06  
We study the effect of user supplied relevance feedback in improving web search results.  ...  Yahoo's mindset search [21] lets users rerank the results, giving more influence to "Shopping" or "Research" URLs. Other work has explored the space of query suggestion.  ...  The web-graph reranker has several attractive properties: • Search engines strive for diversity in search results.  ...

Multiple Queries as Bandit Arms

Cheng Li, Paul Resnick, Qiaozhu Mei
2016 Proceedings of the 25th ACM International on Conference on Information and Knowledge Management - CIKM '16  
In the presence of rate limits, the active queries take turns accessing the index to retrieve another "page" of results. Turns are assigned by a multi-armed bandit based on user feedback.  ...  Significant improvement is observed both when the subtopic queries are known in advance and when the queries are generated in a user-interactive process.  ...  This work is partially supported by the National Science Foundation under grant numbers IIS-0968489 and IIS-1054199 and by the National Institutes of Health under grant number NLM 2R01LM010681-05.  ...
