Semantic Web Enhanced Product Search


This projects aims to improve the online search for products by in creasing the product search engine precision and recall and reducing the user search e ort. For this purpose, we rst investigate how to design a search engine that allows for the search of products using product attributes. Second, we focus on online product reviews for the purpose of review summarization and product attribute extraction. We plan to develop intelligent methods that retrieve, integrate, aggregate, and present product information on the Web. For this purpose, we also plan to investigate the use of Semantic Web vocabularies (e.g., GoodRelations, Google Rich Snippets).
