Instead, search engines try to guess that, which is currently done using "implicit feedback''. In this paper we propose a "web exploration engine'' - a model where users can use the search engine as their tool and explicitly specify the context of their search. Information about the web has been pre-classified in a large number of categories; users can explore this hierarchy by providing relevance feedback or search within a particular category. Search is truly local'' in the sense that keyword relevance is not global, but specific to the category. In contrast to using a search engine, users can guide the exploration engine with relevance feedback alone without entering keywords. en_US dc.description.peerreviewed Yes en_US dc.description.publicationstatus Yes en_US dc.format.extent 193717 bytes dc.format.mimetype application/pdf dc.language English en_US dc.language.iso en_US dc.publisher IEEE en_US dc.publisher.place New York en_US dc.relation.ispartofstudentpublication N en_US dc.relation.ispartofconferencename IEEE / WIC / ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence en_US dc.relation.ispartofconferencetitle IEEE / WIC / ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence en_US dc.relation.ispartofdatefrom 2010-08-31 en_US dc.relation.ispartofdateto 2010-09-03 en_US dc.relation.ispartoflocation Toronto, Canada en_US dc.rights.retention Y en_US dc.subject.fieldofresearch Information and Computing Sciences not elsewhere classified en_US dc.subject.fieldofresearchcode 089999 en_US dc.title Let’s Trust Users - It Is Their Search en_US dc.type Conference output en_US dc.type.description E1 - Conference Publications (HERDC) en_US dc.type.code E - Conference Publications en_US gro.faculty Griffith Sciences, School of Information and Communication Technology en_US gro.rights.copyright Copyright 2010 IEEE.
