Miguel Costa,



The web is rapidly vanishing along with our collective memory. At least 77 web archives have been developed, but these remain data silos with a great potential to unfold. In this seminar, we will present the path followed at FCCN to improve the search effectiveness in web archives, addressing an evaluation methodology that encompasses characterizations about the users and the environment to support realistic simulations. We present for the first time the search effectiveness of the state-of-the-art technology employed in web archives and the improvements achieved by modeling temporal information and using supervised machine learning algorithms.
