My view of Information Retrieval

Current research topics

Some future directions


My view of basic ir

My view of basic IR

http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/~mark/talks/


Current research topics

Current research topics

  • IR oriented

    • Using additional information to enhance queries

    • Expected Search Duration evaluation model

    • Evaluation in general

  • HCI oriented

    • Usability of mobile computing devices

http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/~mark/talks/


Enhancing queries

Enhancing queries

  • Use of contextual info

    • My thesis

    • Vassillis Harmandas’s WIRE system

    • Theodore Dalamagas’s HIM system

  • Cross session/historic info

    • Robert Villa’s PhD

Expected search duration

Expected Search Duration

  • Aims to

    • predict time to complete stereotypical search tasks

    • add user interface aspects to the test-collection (TC) evaluation approach

  • Built on combining expanded versions of

    • Cooper’s Expected Search Length TC measure

    • Green and Benyon’s ERMIA interface modelling

  • Future: test predictions and “package”

Evaluation

Evaluation

  • Mira (CEU funded working group)

    • Organisation of workshops and conference

    • Experiments with Steve Draper on testing different classic HCI evaluation approaches

  • Gauguin

    • Potential follow on bid for EU network

http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/~mark/talks/


Mobile computing 1

Mobile Computing 1

  • Paraglide - newly funded EPSRC project

    • Palm held anaesthesia record assistant

    • Design & evaluation of gestural interfaces

    • Use of contextual analysis to limit input space

    • With Phil Gray and Martin Gardner

  • Ramblin Gumption - moving understanding

    • Developing grant bid on novel input techniques for “limited display devices”

    • With Phil Gray and Steve Brewster

http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/~mark/talks/


Mobile computing 2

Mobile Computing 2

  • Undergraduate projects

    • Alphasliders

    • Starfield displays

    • Dictionary aided text entry on a mobile phone

  • Mobile workshops

    • Glasgow 98

    • INTERACT 99

http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/~mark/talks/


Additional future directions

Additional future directions

  • Developing an encompassing model of contextual information

    • Personal info/contexts/descriptions?

    • Transparent use of context info (e.g. open documents)?

    • Robert’s historical info?

  • Bringing authors into the evaluation process

  • Applying HCI theories in IR

  • Embedding IR in devices
