Towards Communication-Intensive Exploratory User Experiences

  1. 1. Towards Communication-Intensive Exploratory User Experiences Luigi Spagnolo ´ Equipe LIS, IRISA, Universit´ de Rennes 1 e luigi.spagnolo@irisa.fr Department of Electronics and Information, Politecnico di Milano spagnolo@elet.polimi.it January 13, 2011L. Spagnolo (LIS, Politecnico di Milano) DKM Seminar Jan 13, 2011 1/1
  2. 2. OutlineL. Spagnolo (LIS, Politecnico di Milano) DKM Seminar Jan 13, 2011 2/1
  3. 3. Communication-intensive exploratory user experiences Much more than just ”looking for information” Learning, investigating, comparing, discovering, making decisions... Infosuasive: aimed at informing but also at persuading, promoting, attracting, engaging... Example (1) A tourist willing to understand what is worth visiting in a couple of days in Brittany, without spending too much time for driving. Example (2) A prospective bachelor student interested in computer science trying to figure out what these strange terms like ”data mining” and ”HCI” actually mean, and if attending a certain course does not require ”too much math stuff”!L.

  4. 4. Problematic issues A traditional hierarchy of pages and hyperlinks cannot cope with the amount of information in large websites: 1 Problems with findability and sense making 2 Interesting contents is buried under levels and levels of navigation 3 Information overload prevent users from forming their own idea about the website coverage Search and semantic organization of data provide opportunity to enhance user experiences, but lack strategy for presenting information in a effective way for communicative purposes Dry list of results (without ad-hoc explanatory content for the user) usually provided Excessive freedom in exploration may make the user lose the intended focus of the application.L. Spagnolo (LIS, Politecnico di Milano) DKM Seminar Jan 13, 2011 4/1
  5. 5. In SEARCH of a solution A framework of design and implementation patterns for seamless integration of communication-oriented information architecture and semantic search spaces: Pre-structured (ad-hoc) contents + semantic faceted search High expressive power: semantic relationshis plus logical combination of filters (AND, OR, NOT) intuitive interaction and visualization features for enanching sense making My project at IRISA: RIALIS Rich Internet Applications for Logical Information Systems A modular toolbox for communication-intensive web applications based on Camelis 2 as search server and Google Web Toolkit for the AJAX-enabled interfaceL.

  6. 6. A navigation scenario (1) An exemplificative scenario of usage A student has to write an essay on the role of horses in art among the centuries. For the purpose of finding interesting information, she visits an art gallery website powered by RIALIS.L. Spagnolo (LIS, Politecnico di Milano) DKM Seminar Jan 13, 2011 6/1

  15. 15. A navigation scenario (10) - Finally, ”pacifist” horses :-)L. Spagnolo (LIS, Politecnico di Milano) DKM Seminar Jan 13, 2011 15 / 1
  16. 16. Conclusions and future works Two worlds, one common vision: Knowledge management User experience design Using the expressive power of Turning the web of data back sematic web and semantic again into an highly faceted search for adaptive communicative web of reshaping of information information thanks to architectures according to the introductive contents, user wishes (as in a suggested explorations and kaleidoscope!) interactive visualizations. The next steps: A first version of RIALIS will be available in the next months Additional features: advanced visualizations (thematic maps, charts, etc.), multifaceted semantic relationships...L.
