Abstract
Ambiguous information needs expressed in a limited number of keywords often result in long-winded query sessions and many query reformulations. In this work, we tackle ambiguous queries by providing automatically gen- erated semantic aspects that can guide users to satisfying results regarding their information needs. To generate semantic aspects, we use semantic an- notations available in the documents and leverage models representing the semantic relationships between annotations of the same type. The aspects in turn provide us a foundation for representing text in a completely structured manner, thereby allowing for a semantically-motivated organization of search results. We evaluate our approach on a testbed of over 5,000 aspects on Web scale document collections amounting to more than 450 million documents, with temporal, geographic, and named entity annotations as example dimen- sions. Our experimental results show that our general approach is Web-scale ready and finds relevant aspects for highly ambiguous queries.
