The tool enables users to engage in structured information foraging and save interesting information scraps they encounter online. The collected information scraps are then made available in an environment that supports processing these information scraps to answer the questions users have about them.
At the Information Interfaces Lab, computing technologies are developed that help people take advantage of information to enrich their lives. The lab group develops ways to help people understand information via user interface design, information visualization, peripheral awareness techniques and embodied agents. The goal is to help people make better judgments by learning from all the information available to them.
