Communities , Collaboration and Cooperation in Personalized Web Search ∗

  title={Communities , Collaboration and Cooperation in Personalized Web Search ∗},
  author={Jill Freyne and Barry Smyth},
Collaborative Web Search is an approach to Web search that takes advantage of ideas from casebased reasoning in order to improve upon the results of a standard search engine. It retrieves and reuses the prior search experiences of a community of like-minded searchers. Collaborative Web search contemplates a society of differently focused communities, each with their own case-base of search experiences. In the past we have focused on how the experiences of a single community can assist with… Expand

Figures from this paper

Further Experiments in Case-Based Collaborative Web Search
This paper describes how this case-based view can be broadened to accommodate suggestions from multiple case bases, reflecting the expertise and preferences of complementary search communities, and describes the results of a new live-user trial that speaks to the performance benefits that are available by usingmultiple case bases. Expand
Cooperating Search Communities
This paper describes and evaluates a new technique for leveraging the search experiences of related communities as sources of additional search knowledge and allows a generic search engine to adapt to the preferences of communities of individuals. Expand
Social and personal: communities and collaboration in adaptive web search
Search engine technologies are struggling to cope with the sheer quantity of information that is available, a problem that is greatly exacerbated by the apparent inability of Web users to formulate effective search queries that accurately reflect their current information needs. Expand

The main goal of the research is to address the difficulty of learning queries by lessening browser interactions through the implementation of a probabilistic graphical model. Expand
Distributed collaborative filtering with domain specialization
The evaluation demonstrates that the aggregation improves the accuracy of a centralized system containing the same ratings and proves the feasibility and advantages of a distributed collaborative filtering scenario. Expand
Personalizing Web Search: Communities and Collaboration
This talk will focus on how so-called personalization techniques are being used in response to the information overload problem, and the experiences gained and lessons learned when it comes to the deployment of these techniques. Expand
On Two Web IR Boosting Tools: Clustering and Ranking
An important result of this thesis is that it is demonstrated that both clustering and ranking have a mutual reinforcement property that has not yet been studied intensively, and can be exploited to boost the precision of both the methodologies. Expand
A Personalized URL Re-ranking Method using Psychological User Browsing Characteristics
This paper proposes a personalized URL re-ranking method based on psy- chological characteristics of users browsing that can provide better performance than Google and another web personalization method in terms of the average rank. Expand
Alambic: a privacy-preserving recommender system for electronic commerce
A theoretical approach is introduced for a system called Alambic, which achieves the above privacy-protection objectives in a hybrid recommender system that combines content-based, demographic and collaborative filtering techniques. Expand


Further Experiments on Collaborative Ranking in Community-Based Web Search
A novel approach to using context in Web search that seeks to personalize the results of a generic search engine for the needs of a specialist community of users is described. Expand
A Comparative Analysis of Query Similarity Metrics for Community-Based Web Search
This paper examines and compares a collection of 10 alternative metrics that use different types of knowledge as the basis for similarity assessment and proposes a relatively simple form of query similarity, based on the overlap of query-terms. Expand
A Live-User Evaluation of Collaborative Web Search
The results of a large-scale evaluation of collaborative Web search, in a corporate Web search scenario, shows that significant benefits are available to its users. Expand
Exploiting Query Repetition and Regularity in an Adaptive Community-Based Web Search Engine
It is argued that I-SPY strikes a useful balance between search personalization and user privacy, by offering a unique form of anonymous personalization, and in doing so may very well provide privacy-conscious Web users with an acceptable approach to personalized search. Expand
Context in Web Search
Nextgeneration search engines will make increasing use of context information, either by using explicit or implicit context information from users, or by implementing additional functionality within restricted contexts. Expand
PersonalSearcher: An Intelligent Agent for Searching Web Pages
A personalized agent, called PersonalSearcher, that assists the user in finding interesting documents in the World Wide Web is presented, which carries out a parallel search in the most popular Web search engines and filters their result, listing a reduced number of documents with high probability of being relevant to him.

Applying the Broadway Recommendation Computation Approach for Implementing a Query Reenement Service in the Cbkb Meta Search Engine
This work reports on the applicability of the Broadway recommendation computation approach for implementing a query reenement (QR) service in the context of a distributed information retrieval andExpand
Grouper: A Dynamic Clustering Interface to Web Search Results
This paper introduces Grouper, an interface to the results of the HuskySearch meta-search engine, which dynamically groups the search results into clusters labeled by phrases extracted from the snippets, and reports on the first empirical comparison of user Web search behavior on a standard ranked-list presentation versus a clustered presentation. Expand
Collaborative Case-Based Reasoning: Applications in Personalised Route Planning
This paper describes a collaborative case-based reasoning architecture, which allows problem solving experiences to be shared among multiple agents, and demonstrates how this technique can be used successfully to solve an important challenge in the area of personalised route planning. Expand
The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine
This paper provides an in-depth description of Google, a prototype of a large-scale search engine which makes heavy use of the structure present in hypertext and looks at the problem of how to effectively deal with uncontrolled hypertext collections where anyone can publish anything they want.
