Catalyzing a Human-Centered Information Research Program: Beyond Application and Document-Centered Views of Information
Weekly internal seminar by Jim Hollan, Distinguished Professor of Cognitive Science and Computer Science at the University of California, San Diego, and 2021-2022 Paris IAS Fellow.
Communication discussed by Jean-Daniel Fekete, directeur de recherche en informatique à l'Inria, directeur de l'équipe Aviz (Inria-Université Paris-Saclay).
This research project envisions a future in which the existing world of documents and applications is linked to a multiscale personalized information space in which dynamic visual entities behave in accordance with cognitively motivated rules sensitive to activities, personal and group interaction histories, and context. The heart of the project is to rethink the nature of computer-mediated information as a basis to begin to fully realize the potential of computers to assist information activities.
