If Google Was a Junk Shop If Google Was a Junk Shop Presentation Transcript

  • If Google was a junk shop...
  • Despite enhancements to the Googles and Bings of the world. This is still the focus. SEARCH
  • A text query, list of blue links. Functional, but takes away serendipity.
  • Our research has shown that people exploring a collection prefer visuals.
  • With Google you’d find this quickly, but it’s a dead-end.
  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/samsaunders/ In this environment it can take a while to find stuff, but opens up so many possibilities!
  • An unexpected find. http://www.flickr.com/photos/yellowbookltd/
  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/fernando/ Discovery of unrelated items for friends and family.
  • USER TESTING A ‘SEARCH’ ENGINE
  • This is Click Suite testing a type of search engine.
  • People were drawn to images first.
  • If the image interested them they wanted to know more. Then they read the story.
  •  
  • "This is so much better than Google!" Many unprompted comments from test subjects indicated they loved this way of searching!
  • GLAMS* SEARCH EXPERIENCE * Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums sector
  • Galleries, libraries, archives & museums have tons of visual riches - but they don’t take advantage of it online.
  • Is it time to move on from this?
  • It’s also time to move to natural language recognition.
  • Otago is the heart of the NZ gold industry. Surely this museum would have an answer?
  • ...you’ve got to be precise. And where are the amazing visuals?
  • Attempts at a better search experience...
