How serious can a missing document on a search result list be? For certain people that conduct search as part of their profession, a missing search result could lead to litigation or death. This talk will examine search tasks in two such professional domains: Intellectual Property and Medicine, covering the challenges inherent in search in these domains. On the technical side, the analysis of documents using both lexical semantics and statistical semantics in order to improve search results in these domains will be presented.
