Personalized search (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personalized_search) is becoming more and more common. AFAIK we haven't implemented anything in that direction for any of our wiki's (and couldn't find a task). We should offer this option to our logged-in users. You would build a (search) profile for every user and based on several strategies you should be able to provide better search results.
Of course this might have privacy implications if done wrong. Should probably be a option in the user preferences to enable/disable it, to enable/disable collecting search data and a big delete button to delete the gathered profile data. Data shouldn't be exposed or only on a very high level of aggregation.
The user benefit would be better search results and maybe suggestions for users about new content (articles/files) in areas of interest. Quite a few people use Spotify, like the "discover" menu in their app.
This is a (very) high level task. Should probably have a bunch of subtasks if people actually going to work on this feature.
