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

http://s16a.org/percy.

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?
