Measuring Demonstrated Potential Domain Knowledge with Knowledge Graphs
The Web consists of billions of pages providing useful information to solve many of our day-to-day problems. During a single lifetime, however, we are able to process only a limited fraction of these pages, carefully selecting the data that we do process becomes important. Search engines and recommender systems help us to effectively select a small set of Web pages that potentially contain information relevant to the queries we issue. What current search engines DO NOT consider is the knowledge we may already have, or whether we are able to understand the information presented. In this post I am going to describe a recent study, including: (1) A method we propose to measure demonstrated potential domain knowledge as a proxy for knowledge; (2) How we use this metric to analyse the query log of a person spanning over 10 years; and (3) How YOU can use the tools and resources to analyse your own search history.
