As the amount of information available in the world grows, Information Retrieval (IR) systems have become an integral part of day to day life. They determine what subset of the large pool of information is shown to people. IR algorithms determine which items should be returned in response to a query and rank the results in a ranked list.<br/...

Performing user interface studies and logging user interactions is commonplace in the Interactive Information Retrieval field (IIR). As a result, the LogUI framework was developed to make logging such interactions an easier task. However, this framework does not come with any visualization tool, requiring the researcher to analyze their data...

Collaborative search is "the retrieval and sensemaking of information by multiple users with the same information need". The experience of collaborative search can be improved by employing a chatbot which is "a program designed to counterfeit a smart communication". Chatbot makes it easier for the users to be aware of each other's activities and...

This paper shows the influence of multitasking on the usage of a voice assistant. Voice assistants allow users to input queries over a speech-only channel, and as a result they do not require the same attention as a traditional search engine. Existing research describes the effects of the use of a voice assistant on driving and other demanding...

During conversational information retrieval, a user engages in a dialogue interaction with a search system in order to satisfy an information need. A profound understanding of the way in which users formulate and reformulate messages during this dialogue interaction, will aid the development and optimization of conversational search systems....

Conversational search systems have recently gained popularity due to their effectiveness in performing small tasks and answering factoid questions. However, under complex search scenarios, these systems fail and fall back to techniques used by traditional search engines. As tasks requiring user learning are inherently complex, user knowledge is...

Weak baselines have been present in Information Retrieval (IR) for<br/>decades. They have been associated with IR progress stagnation, baseline<br/>selection bias to publish results more readily, and models’ effectiveness<br/>reproducibility issues that hinder the validation of results by independent<br/>research teams. Weak baselines have been...

Nowadays, most users access the web through search engine portals. However, information needs can often be ill-defined or too broad to be solvable by a list of results the user has to scroll through, which implies that he is most likely required to refine the need by himself to reach the desired result. In recent years, researchers have...

Open-domain question answering (QA) is an important step in Artificial Intelligence and its ultimate goal is to build a QA system that can answer any question posed by humans. The majority of the open-domain QA system is the retrieval-based open-domain QA system, which enables the retrieval component to retrieve relevant documents from a large...
