Abstract:This paper presents Prospector, an adaptive meta-search layer, which performs personalized re-ordering of search results. Prospector combines elements from two approaches to adaptive search support: (a) collaborative web searching; and, (b) personalized searching using semantic metadata. The paper focuses on the way semantic metadata and the users’ search behavior are utilized for user- and group- modeling, as well as on how these models are used to re-rank results returned for individual queries. The paper also outlines past evaluation activities related to Prospector, and discusses potential applications of the approach for the adaptive retrieval of multimedia documents.
