|Prof. Eugene Agichtein wins Microsoft Research "Beyond Search" Award|
|Published Date: 2007-12-19|
Microsoft Research and Microsoft adCenter announced Eugene as one of the recipients of the Beyond Search Semantic Computing and Internet Economics 2007 RFP awards. The research (in collaboration with Prof. Charles Clarke of the University of Waterloo) aims to develop techniques to automatically identify the user queries and behavior patterns associated with commercial intent. Specifically, the researchers will develop a taxonomy of commercial intent to classify user information needs along dimensions such as immediate vs. near-term purchase, or purchase vs. research. The researchers will also develop techniques to automatically infer the information needs from user actions to classify the search session in the corresponding commercial intent category. The general intent inference algorithms developed will also be applicable to other (non-commercial) intent detection tasks, such as detection of scholarly research intent, health information seeking, and market research. For more information see the Microsoft Research announcement.
