Example text

We call this “precision of preferences” or ppref for short. More formally, over all pairs of pages i, j such that i is preferred to j by an assessor, ppref is the proportion for which the engine ranked i above j. If neither i nor j is ranked, ppref ignores the pair. If i is ranked but j is not, ppref considers i to have been ranked above j. The pairs in ppref can be weighted for a measure we call wpref. We use a rank-based weighting scheme: for pages at ranks i and j such that j > i, let 1 . wpref is then the sum of weights wij over pairs i, j the weight wij = log (j+1) 2 such that i is preferred to j and the rank of i is less than the rank of j.

They also show that by using a whole range of implicit user feedback such as page dwell time, the precision of rankings can be increased significantly. Evaluation Metrics. Experimental work in information retrieval typically follows the “Cranfield” paradigm, where a search system is evaluated by running a set of queries over a fixed collection. A human judge assesses the relevance of each document for each query and, based on the position of relevant documents in the result list, a variety of performance metrics can be calculated.
