Seaform: Search-As-You-Type in Forms
Form-style interfaces have been widely used to allow users to access information. In this demonstration paper, we develop a new search paradigm in form-style query interfaces, called Seaform (which stands for Search-As-You-Type in Forms), which computes answers on-the-fly as a user types in a query letter by letter and gives the user instant feedback. Seaform provides better user experiences compared with traditional form-based query systems by reducing the efforts for a user to compose a high-quality query to find relevant answers. Seaform can also enhance faceted search and allow users to on-the-fly explore the underlying data. This search paradigm requires high performance to achieve an interactive speed. We develop efficient techniques and use them to implement two systems on real datasets. We demonstrate the features of these systems.
