Abstract

In this paper we examine the role of explanations as a means of facilitating the use of relevance feedback in information retrieval systems. We do this with particular reference to previous experimental work. This demonstrates that explanations can increase the user's willingness to interact more fully with the system. We outline the general conclusions from this experimental work and discuss the implications for interactive IR systems that incorporate relevance feedback.
