DynaQ
Dynamic Queries für dokument-basierte, persönliche Informationsräume

DynaQ?s goal is to design the prototype of a data-recall facility to open up individual knowledge resources on a user?s desktop by using ?orienteering? as a retrieval strategy.

?Orienteering? is typically characterized by relatively small steps following one after another. In contrast to searching through keywords, ?orienteering? offers several advantages:

? Reduction of cognitive charge: it is dispensable to describe the sought information in detail in advance. It is sometimes easier to transact a search strategy rather than describing the actual goal.

? Sensitivity for the ambience: because of the advancement in rather small steps users are continuously aware of what they do and where they are. They are assured to control the process

? A sound understanding of the results: because of additionally learning about the context of how they were obtained understanding, interpreting and assessing the results? reliability is alleviated.

DynaQ includes different types of data (pdf, postscript, text, e-mail, etc.) as much as meta-information and available semantic annotations. Based on the existing visualization technique Dynamic Queries DynaQ aims to develop an interface which allows users to continuously develop their individual knowledge resources.

Das Ziel des Projektes ist die Konzeption und Entwicklung eines prototypischen Recherchesystems zur Erschließung des persönlichen Informationsraums, welches den Benutzer durch die Suchstrategie Orienteering unterstützt.

Der dokument-basierte persönliche Informationsraum eines Benutzers konstituiert sich durch alle Dokumente auf seinem Rechner. Hierzu gehören Dokumente verschiedener Formate (z.B. pdf), aber auch seine EMails. Hinzu kommen noch alle verfügbaren Meta-Informationen und vorhandene semantische Informationen zu den Dokumenten.
