  主题:《Agents that Get the Right Information to the Right People in the Right Way》

  摘要:Interaction with information is a fundamental activity of the human condition. Interactions with search systems play an important role in the daily activities of many people, so as to inform their decisions and guide their actions. For many years, the field of IR has accepted ``the provision of relevant documents'' as the goal of its most fundamental algorithms. The focus of the field is shifting towards algorithms that are able to get the right information to the right people in the right way.

  Artificial intelligence (AI) is entering a new golden age. How can these advances help information retrieval? That is, how can AI help to develop agents that get the right information to the people in the right way? Making search results as useful as possible may be easy for some search tasks, but in many cases it depends on context, such as a user's background knowledge, age, or location, or their specific search goals. Addressing each optimal combination of search result preferences individually is not feasible. Instead, we need to look for scalable methods that can learn good search results without expensive tuning. In recent years, there has been significant work on developing methods for a range of IR problems that learn directly from natural interactions with their users. In the talk I will sample from these advances and hint at future directions.
