Abstract

We present the results of a study of users' perception of relevance of documents. Documents retrieved in response to a query are presented to users in a variety of ways, from full text to a machine spoken query-biased automatically-generated summary, and the difference in users' perception of relevance is studied. The aim is to study experimentally how users' perception of relevance varies depending on the form that retrieved documents are presented. The experimental results suggest that the effectiveness of advanced multimedia Information Retrieval applications may be affected by the low level of users' perception of relevance of retrieved documents.
