LivingKnowledge goal is to bring a new quality into search and knowledge management technology for more concise, complete and contextualised search results.
Nav & Search
The focus here is developing methods for diversity-aware search and exploration of information. Diversifying search results is an important and challenging problem, required to increase user satisfaction for ambiguous queries or for queries where the results contain multiple subtopics or opinions. This can be achieved through detecting and removing near-duplicates in the query results to reduce redundancy, as well as by increasing the dissimilarity of the retrieved results. In addition to search, navigation and browsing are important for exploring large data sets. In this case, the focus will be on identifying the main dimensions of diversity, and allowing faceted exploration of results across these dimensions.
