Relevance is Tightly Correlated with Context by Augustine Fou PhD

  1. 1. VALUE = Relevance = ContextJune 13, 2012 1
  2. 2. Executive Summary • The sheer quantity of information means that even though search results may contain what users are looking for they still need ways to judge the trustworthiness, and therefore the usefulness, of the information. • Users are savvy enough to look for context – e.g. the date of the Yelp review – to judge the value of the content. They may also look at what is most shared by their peers as an indicator of value.June 13, 2012 2

  8. 8. So What? “Out of the ocean of information, users need tools to find what they want; when they find it, they need context to judge the trustworthiness of the content. Instead of pushing ads at users, advertisers should find ways to give users context and clues so they can judge the value and trustworthiness of the content.” - Dr. Augustine FouJune 13, 2012 8
