Make good prefix search profile for Wikidata entities
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

We need to create a profile that provides good results for prefix search.

Current profiles have these issues:

  • Over-boosting label counts
  • Not counting incoming links
  • Disambig pages shown way too high (T148411)
  • Rescore window of 8192 probably way too large

It would be very nice if we had a setup that would allow us to compare different search profiles side by side, similar to the way we can now compare sql vs cirrus. Can we choose the search profile via a url parameter?

@daniel it is possible to do it, the URL variable is cirrusRescoreProfile. The profiles need to already be in config, of course. If you have ideas which ones you want, please describe them.

Created page https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Smalyshev_(WMF)/Wikidata_search_test for tracking results and problems with current implementation. Please add examples and comments if necessary.
