Semantic Search Evaluation

We need your help with a research project on semantic search algorithms!

We have developed new approaches, which of course have to be evaluated - and this is where we need you!

Please attend our user study and assess the quality of our algorithms by telling us which documents are relevant to a search query, and by comparing different rankings. The evaluation can be done anywhere, anytime in the next week, at

You will not only help us, but any future research in this area, because we intend to publish a gold standard based on your judgments. Helping fellow students and researchers should be a good enough motivation, but if it is not ... maybe the chance to win a 10Euro Amazon gift card is?
