Title
(EN) METHOD AND USER INTERFACE FOR PRESENTING AUXILIARY CONTENT TOGETHER WITH IMAGE SEARCH RESULTS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET INTERFACE UTILISATEUR POUR PRÉSENTER UN CONTENU AUXILIAIRE CONJOINTEMENT AVEC DES RÉSULTATS DE RECHERCHE D'IMAGE
Abstract
(EN) Auxiliary content provided in addition to search results is selected and presented to aid the user in completing tasks and increasing user interaction performance. Auxiliary content is processed utilizing existing search engine categorization and identification mechanisms, thereby facilitating the determination of similarities between the auxiliary content and indexed content that is identified as being responsive to a search query. At least some of the search results identified as being responsive to the search query are compared to auxiliary content to identify similarities, including visual similarities. Similar auxiliary content are selected to aid the user in completing tasks, and such selected auxiliary content is provided with the search results, including in a visually distinct or separated manner.
(FR) L'invention concerne la sélection et la présentation d'un contenu auxiliaire fourni en plus de résultats de recherche pour aider l'utilisateur dans l'accomplissement de tâches et augmenter les performances d'interaction de l'utilisateur. Un contenu auxiliaire est traité en utilisant des mécanismes de catégorisation et d'identification existants d'un moteur de recherche, ce qui facilite la détermination de similarités entre le contenu auxiliaire et un contenu indexé qui est identifié comme étant réactif à une interrogation de recherche. Au moins certains des résultats de recherche identifiés comme étant réactifs à l'interrogation de recherche sont comparés à un contenu auxiliaire afin d'identifier des similarités, y compris des similarités visuelles. Des contenus auxiliaires similaires sont choisis pour aider l'utilisateur dans l'accomplissement de tâches, et un contenu auxiliaire ainsi sélectionné est fourni avec les résultats de la recherche, y compris d'une manière visuellement distincte ou séparée.
