A user’s query to a search engine or virtual assistant may reasonably be answered at several levels of complexity. In current search or information-retrieval engines, the user’s domain expertise is not typically accounted for when providing a response. Thus, even if the answer is correct, it may not be appropriate for the user given their prior knowledge about the topic. This disclosure describes techniques that, with user permission, determine a user’s domain expertise and select an answer appropriate to the user’s level in the domain of the query.
