Towards User Intent Based Searching

By: Haibo Yu; Amamiya, M.; Mine, T.;

2011 / IEEE / 978-1-4577-2135-9


This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Towards User Intent Based Searching ' According to user's intent, Broder classified Web queries into three classes: navigational, informational and transactional. However, current search engines do not provide relevant search results based on the user's intent. In this paper, we propose a user intent based searching mechanism (UIBS for short) in order to enable precise discovery of a Web site (for navigational searching) as well as aggregating of their information (for informational searching) and performing further activities (for transactional searching). We first propose a Web site capability description interface for the explicit description of a Web site's capability and a search interface that enables explicit description of user's search intents, preferences, and query on the information. And then we describe the process of the query engine which provides relevant search results based on the user's intent, preferences, and requirements. Finally, a test example is given to show the availability of the proposed UIBS mechanism.
