In Search Computing, queries act over internet resources, and combine access to standard web services with exact results and to ranked search services. Such resources often provide limited statistical information that can be used to inform static query optimization, and correlations between the values and ranks associated with different resources may only become clear at query runtime. As a result, search computing seems likely to benefit from adaptive query processing, where information
