Research from Microsoft: Personalized Search, Determining a Query's Dominant Location, and Much More

The other day I posted about a paper presented at the SIGIR conference a few week's ago. Apparently, that got Findory CEO, Greg Linden, looking for other papers from the conference. Well, he found, "Personalized Search via Automated Analysis of Interests and Activities" from Microsoft Research. Greg shares a few thoughts about it in this GWG blog post.

Another paper and a very interesting read from Microsoft Research (also presented at the SIGIR conference), is titled: Detecting Dominant Locations from Search Queries (PDF). This Search-Science blog post provides a summary.

Want More? Here's a selected list of other search-related research papers that MSR presented at SIGIR. The links will take you to an abstract where you'll also find access to the full text.
