In this paper we propose a system which recognizes and interprets the semantics of handwritten annotations on printed documents. The semantic information will be sent to the Semantic Desktop, the personal Semantic Web on the desktop computer, which supports users in their information management. This allows a seamless integration of interactive paper into(More)
In this paper we extend the Semantic Desktop with a novel input modality: handwriting on paper. This extension allows for annotating printed documents with handwritten notes, which are then recognized, interpreted and integrated into the personal knowledge space. Thus it supports personal knowledge work on paper. In particular , the user can mark any text(More)
We present the development process and user test results for an interactive platform for cognitive training. The platform is specifically aimed at older users with and without mild cognitive impairment (MCI). The iterative development cycle, with continuous testing by users in the targeted groups, resulted in a styleguide tailored to the needs of the user(More)
In this paper we present the digital library assistant (DiLiA). The system aims at augmenting the search in digital libraries in several dimensions. In the project advanced information visualisation methods are developed for user controlled interactive search. The interaction model has been designed in a way that it is transparent to the user and easy to(More)
The research project MEDICO aims at developing an intelligent , robust and scalable semantic search engine for medical documents. The search engine of the MEDICO demonstrator RadSem is based on formal ontologies and is designated for different kinds of users, such as medical doctors, medical IT professionals, patients, and policy makers. Since semantic(More)
