Learning to Mine Query Subtopics from Query Log
Many queries in web search are ambiguous or multifaceted. Identifying the major senses or facets of queries is very important for web search. In this paper, we represent the major senses or facets of queries as subtopics and refer to indentifying senses or facets of queries as query subtopic mining, where query subtopic are represented as a number of clusters of queries. Then the challenges of query subtopic mining are how to measure the similarity between queries and group them semantically. This paper proposes an approach for mining subtopics from query log, which jointly learns a similarity measure and groups queries by explicitly modeling the structure among them. Compared with previous approaches using manually defined similarity measures, our approach produces more desirable query subtopics by learning a similarity measure. Experimental results on real queries collected from a search engine log confirm the effectiveness of the proposed approach in mining query subtopics.
