Audio fingerprinting is one of the standard solutions for music identification. The underlying technique is designed to be robust to signal degradation such that music can be identified despite its presence. One of the newly emerged applications of a possibly challenging nature is music identification in movies. This paper examines the audio...

In order determine when we can show direct answer module to user queries in web search engine, an independent classifier is designed in this study to assess the answerability of each user query. Real user queries are sampled from MS MARCO Question Answering and Natural Langauge Generation dataset \cite{MSMARCO} and manually labelled with query...

Machine learning (ML) has become a core technology for many real-world applications. Modern ML models are applied to unprecedentedly complex and difficult challenges, including very large and subjective problems. For instance, applications towards multimedia understanding have been advanced substantially. Here, it is already prevalent that...

Active reading strategies - -such as content annotations (through the use of highlighting and note-taking, for example) - -have been shown to yield improvements to a learner's knowledge and understanding of the topic being explored. This has been especially notable in long and complex learning endeavours. With web search engines nowadays used...

Models developed to simulate user interactions with search interfaces typically do not consider the visual layout and presentation of a Search Engine Results Page (SERP). In particular, the position and size of interfacewidgets ---such as entity cards and query suggestions---are usually considered a negligible constant. In contrast, in this work...

Aircraft dispatch involves determining the optimal dispatch option when an aircraft experiences an unexpected failure. Currently, maintenance technicians at the apron have limited access to support information and finding the right information in extensive maintenance manuals is a time-consuming task, often leading to technically induced...

An introduction to the special issue on conversational search and recommendation is presented in this article. While conversational search and recommendation has roots in early Information Retrieval (IR) research, the recent advances in automatic voice recognition and conversational agents have created increasing interest in this area. In...

The fields of music, health, and technology have seen significant interactions in recent years in developing music technology for health care and well-being. In an effort to strengthen the collaboration between the involved disciplines, the workshop “Music, Computing, and Health” was held to discuss best practices and state-of-the-art at the...

High-level music classification tasks such as automatic music mood annotation impose several challenges, both from a psychological and a machine learning point of view. Ground truth labels for these tasks at hand are hard to define due to the abstract and aesthetic nature of the data, being largely dependent on human psychology and perception....

Systematic literature reviews in software engineering as well as other disciplines, serve as the foundation for sound scientific research. The aim for these literature reviews is to aggregate all existing knowledge on a research problem and produce informed guidelines for practitioners. This enables practitioners to apply appropriate software...

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...

When an aircraft experiences an unexpected issue during flight operations, a technician determines whether the aircraft can safely perform the next flight. This operational decision process - known as dispatch assessment - has to happen within limited available time between aircraft arrival and departure. Currently, technicians face two main...

Information overload is a problem many of us can relate to nowadays. The deluge of user generated content on the Internet, and the easy accessibility to a vast amount of data compounds the problem of remembering and retaining information that is consumed. To make information consumed more memorable, strategies such as note-taking have been found...

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...

With the increasing popularity of mobile and voice-assisted, extracting short and precise answer passages to open-domain questions is becoming an increasingly important information retrieval (IR) task. The recently released large-scale corpus for answer passage retrieval—WikiPassageQA—was shown to be challenging for both traditional retrieval...

In common Dutch cardiac care, patients only have few follow-up meetings with their cardiologists after they have been treated at the hospital. Sometimes, they have to wait several months for their next visit. Therefore, patients often turn to online platforms where they can ask questions to other patients or healthcare professionals, namely...

Collaborative search, where the activities of multiple users are combined to satisfy their information need, is an effective tool to to handle complex search tasks. People search collaboratively in groups of varying sizes. Various collaborative search systems have been studied in previous work, but they only investigate a fixed group size....

Deep neural networks have frequently been used to directly learn representations useful for a given task from raw input data. In terms of overall performance metrics, machine learning solutions employing deep representations frequently have been reported to greatly outperform those using hand-crafted feature representations. At the same time,...

Web search has become a convenient option for seeking information related to learning, therefore understanding how to facilitate human learning through a search engine has the potential to improve the quality of informal education and online learning. One less understood aspect of search as learning is the effect of collaboration in a search...
