Title (EN) COLLABORATIVE SEARCHING
(FR) RECHERCHE COLLABORATIVE
Abstract:
(EN) Disclosed are techniques that allow users (102, 104, 106) to collaborate in a search. Each user (102, 104, 106) can contribute (300, 400) to an original search and to refining (304, 410) the results of the search. Preferences of all of the users (102, 104, 106) are considered (308, 402) in the search even while those preferences can be kept private. In some embodiments of the present invention, at least two users (102, 104, 106) each submit (300, 304) a search query. The multiple search queries are logically combined (306) to produce (310) one set of search results. The results can be reviewed by the users (102, 104, 106) and refined (304) if necessary. In some embodiments, a search query can be specified (400) by a single user (102, 104, 106), but the search engine takes into consideration (402) the stored preferences of multiple users (102, 104, 106) (in addition to the search query itself, of course).
(FR) La présente invention concerne des techniques qui permettent à des utilisateurs (102, 104, 106) de collaborer pour une recherche. Chaque utilisateur (102, 104, 106) peut participer (300, 400) à une recherche initiale et à l'affinage (304, 410) des résultats de la recherche. Les préférences de tous les utilisateurs (102, 104, 106) sont prises en compte (308, 402) pour la recherche bien que ces préférences puissent rester privées. Dans certains modes de réalisation de la présente invention, au moins deux utilisateurs (102, 104, 106) soumettent chacun (300, 304) une requête de recherche. Les requêtes de recherche multiples sont combinées logiquement (306) pour produire (310) un seul ensemble de résultats de recherche. Les résultats peuvent être examinés par les utilisateurs (102, 104, 106) et affinés (304) si nécessaire. Dans certains modes de réalisation, une requête de recherche peut être émise (400) par un seul utilisateur (102, 104, 106), mais le moteur de recherche va prendre en compte (402) les préférences stockées de plusieurs utilisateurs (102, 104, 106) (outre, naturellement, la requête de recherche proprement dite).
