Blogging with CONTEXT: A context-aware information retrieval system for bloggers
The poster describes the development process and evaluation of a context-aware information retrieval system for blog authors, called CONTEXT. As a blogger writes a post, the system automatically retrieves and displays links to web resources (web sites, news stories, video, etc) that are relevant to the bogger’s entry. CONTEXT continuously monitors the blog post for new search keywords to find and display the most relevant resources to the blogger. The main goal of this system is to inform the blogger in real time of other related discussions that are going on in the blogosphere or elsewhere and give her/him a chance to be part of the ‘global’ conversation and thus improve his/her entry by incorporating some of the suggested resources into a post. Our expectation is that CONTEXT will lead to more interactive and content-rich blog entries, in which bloggers are not just expressing their own opinions, but they are also addressing each other and building on each other’s arguments.
