Leveraging Semantic Technologies for Enterprise Search


Today's era of information explosion, information on a daily basis at an alarming rate. According to the statistics show that the world authority on global trading data information from the annual growth rate of 61%, and other information related to annual growth rate of more than 92%. Research into traditional relational database management system from the processing of data as structured data, to include paper documents, electronic documents, faxes, reports, tables, pictures, audio and video files, including information known as unstructured data or content. Through the survey found that in the vast amounts of information stored in corporate, structured data accounted for only 15% of the total data, and unstructured data accounts for 85% of the total data. Orderly storage, management and use of unstructured data mining is the value of all successful enterprises to improve global competitiveness and productivity of the primary means.

– Thoughts on my    Big Picture

         How can we query for different item types together:
           integrating document and people search

        – Extension of Vector Space Model to
          consider Docs and People
        – Place also People into the Space
          considering several evidences of expertise
        – Query properly in order to retrieve both
          Docs and People

                           How can we query
                     structured and unstructured
                             data together?

                 – DB search
                     • Keyword search in DB
                 – IR search
                     • Structured search (author:john)
                 – Goal: (un-)structured search on
                   (un-)structured data

                  How can we benefit from both
            Semantic Web and Information Retrieval
                 techniques in enterprise search?

     – Semantic Search
           • Use metadata to improve content-based search
     – IR indexing
           • Use taxonomies instead of flat term-based indexing
     – Expert Search
           • Use ontologies as expertise taxonomies

              How can we enrich automatically
      the metadata annotation in a social infrastructure?

      – Scenario: desktops with metadata annotations
      – Search in your community for new metadata
      – Ask to similar peers how they annotate similar

          Web, enterprise and desktop: how do they differ?

      – Link structure
      – Spam
      – Privacy
            • Sharing data
            • Activities Logging

Gianluca Demartini                                           8
    How can we systematically evaluate enterprise search?

      – Relevance Definition
      – Metrics
      – Standard evaluation approach: testbed
      – Privacy issues for building public collections

                           How can we personalize
                     the enterprise search user experience?

– User Observation
      • Activity logging
      • Context detection
– Tasks
– User Role

              – Integrate techniques from
               different fields

              – Innovate where the
               improvement is (economically)
