Using digest pages to increase user result space: Preliminary designs

By Shanu Sushmita and Queen MaryMounia Lalmas and Queen MaryAnastasio Tombros and Queen Mary


It is well known that in web search, users access only a small fraction of the presented results. Increasing the result space of web users to provide them more relevant information but without expecting them to access more results is thus important as the amount of information published on the web is continuously growing. In this paper, we introduce the concept of a digest page, which is a fictitious document built from the clustering of result documents returned by a search engine as answers to a query, and where each cluster has its documents summarized into the digest page. This paper presents preliminary designs regarding the construction, the presentation, and the ranking of digest pages. It also shows how digest pages can be used to capture the context of a query through the concept of an aggregated digest page, which is based on the aggregated search paradigm offered by some search engines
