Serdyukov, P. and Hiemstra, D. (2008) Being Omnipresent To Be Almighty: The Importance of The Global Web Evidence for Organizational Expert Finding. In: Proceedings of SIGIR 2008 Workshop on Future Challenges in Expertise Retrieval (fCHER2008), 24 Jul 2008, Singapore.
|Abstract:||Modern expert nding algorithms are developed under the|
assumption that all possible expertise evidence for a person
is concentrated in a company that currently employs the
person. The evidence that can be acquired outside of an
enterprise is traditionally unnoticed. At the same time, the
Web is full of personal information which is sufficiently detailed to judge about a person's skills and knowledge. In this work, we review various sources of expertise evidence out-side of an organization and experiment with rankings built on the data acquired from six dierent sources, accessible through APIs of two major web search engines. We show that these rankings and their combinations are often more realistic and of higher quality than rankings built on organizational data only.
