  ASIST: Plenary Session Pattie Maes
Plenary Session, Pattie Maes:  Just in Time Information

Proactively offering information that is highly relevant to what s/he is currently working on.

While we look at active seeking, she looks at providing information without interrupting what the user is currently doing

  1. model user interest/preferences

  2. sense current context of user

  3. compute information relevant to the context and user profile (recommendation algorithm)

  4. present information in subtle, non-intrusive way

Letizia – while web searching (1998)
Collaborative filtering recommenders (1994)
Footprints – popular paths on a website, shows how people usually view the web site. (1999)
Remembrance Agent (1996) – reminds user of previous pages visited on the same topic, little gray box  appears next to each paragraph.  Similar system for e-mail.
What would they think, Virtual Mentors (2004) – shows you what people you care about think on the subject.  You subscribe to a mentor and get their views.
Yenta Matchmaking system (1999) (not romantic) watches e-mail, web stuff, offers to introduce you to people with similar interests

While on the go (too many clicks, not enough screen space) Wearable remembrance agent

Impulse:  automated information exchange with entities in the physical vicinity (2000)
Periscope (2001) camera w/compass and range finder, mark items and instead of calling in an air strike on them, you get information about them
Hanging messages (2000) leave notes at certain locations
Etherthreads (2004) Bluetooth and gps data trigger location based relevant messages
Photowhere (2004) automated annotation of photographs, automatically tag
Reachmedia (2005) wireless RFID reader wristband reads tags in objects held by user.  Touching an object results in a menu of services and information (order a copy, read reviews, leave a message), peripheral visual interface for reachmedia, semantics,
Invisible media (2005) visual focus of attention
