In this project we designed, tested and implemented a query service for expanding and normalizing titles and searches. With regards to finding synonyms in titles, phrase recognition algorithms were developed as well. An additional service was created to find appropriate categories for a query to assist the search of synonyms. An application was then built on top of these two services to help users expand their searches and build advanced queries with no additional knowledge.
