This Web app was developed by Jon Pearce, The University of Melbourne, and a team of four visiting students from Aalborg University, Denmark: Umachanger Brinthaparan, Nirojan Srikandarajah, Lars Lichon and Stephan Rasmussen.
Its aim is to support exploration of the OzCHI 2013 conference papers based on people’s personal preferences, rather than keyword search. This is different metaphor for exploring than you commonly use with a search engine like Google. Rather than knowing what you are looking for and entering an appropriate term, with this app you know the kinds of things that you like, and enter those into the system using sliders. The papers that best match your desires come to the top. Or you might enter a search term for the title of a paper that you know, and it will come to the top along with others with similar characteristics that you also might like.
This app is powered by iFISH - an exploration engine developed at the University of Melbourne and being used in many diverse research projects where exploration is required. You can find more information by following a link on this page: http://ifish.io
