Exploring a Gallery with Intelligent Labels

  title={Exploring a Gallery with Intelligent Labels},
  author={Jon Oberlander and Chris Mellish and Mick O'Donnell and Alistair Knott},
Ordinary labels on museum or gallery objects compromise the competing demands of diiering visitors, curators and educators. Although adaptive hypermedia systems ooer a degree of personalisation to the visitor, they do not go as far as they might. Intelligent labelling can achieve higher levels of personalisation, and this is desirable because it leads to a more coherent and educational visit, and because the overall interaction with the hypermedia resource becomes more like an active…

Conversation in the museum: experiments in dynamic hypermedia with the intelligent labelling explorer
This work outlines experience with the Intelligent Labelling Explorer, a dynamic hypertext system developed at the University of Edinburgh, in collaboration with the National Museums of Scotland, and sketches the general architecture of the system.
Building an adaptive museum gallery in Second Life
We describe initial work on building a virtual gallery, within Second Life, which can automatically tailor itself to an individual visitor, responding to their abilities, interests, preferences or
Dynamic versus static hypermedia in museum education : an evaluation of ILEX , the intelligent labelling explorer
An evaluation of an intelligent labell ing explorer (ILEX), a system that dynamically generates text labels for exhibit s n a museum jewellery gallery, revealed that the two gro ups differed in terms of their navigational behaviour and in the type and amount of in f rmation to which they were exposed.
Was the Title of This Talk Gernerated Automatically? Prospects on Intelligent Interfaces and Language
In the paper reference is made to some prototypes developed at IRST, conceived for cultural tourism, the specificity is the combination of two forms of navigation taking place at the same time - one in information space, the other in the physical space.
Personalization And The Web From A Museum Perspective
Various possible approaches from a museological as well as a technical point of view to on-line personalization of museum Web sites are discussed.
Content Adaptation for Audio-based Hypertexts in Physical Environments
Some of the critical issues about content adaptation emerging in physical hypernavigation are discussed, presenting the approach adopted in the HyperAudio project.
The role of adaptive hypermedia in a context-aware tourist GUIDE
GUIDE represents an example of a visible application stream in adaptive hypermedia research, one in which applications are context-aware and able to use context, such as the user's current location, to adapt the presentation of hyperme-dia.
Language-Based Interfaces and Their Application for Cultural Tourism
In the article, reference is made to some prototypes developed at IRST that were conceived for this specific area of language processing, and the combination of two forms of navigation taking place at the same time -- one in information space, the other in physical space.
Usability of Interactive Computers in Exhibitions: Designing Knowledgeable Information for Visitors
Investigating three types of content presentation (video documentary, computerized dictionary, and games) within interactive computer use at the Quebec Museum of Civilization finds that computer literate individuals have experienced problems to gain information, because of the content presentation and ergonomics.
Providing Tailored (Context-Aware) Information to City Visitors
The role of adaptive hypermedia within the GUIDE system and the techniques used to tailor or adapt the presentation of web-based information are focused on.


Dynamic Generation of Museum Web Pages: The Intelligent Labelling Explorer
The advantages of dynamic hypertext and issues related to generating a text that hangs together well are discussed.
Sources of Flexibility in Dynamic Hypertext Generation
Here, it is useful to take stock of how well-equipped NLG technology is to work in this new domain of hypertext, and indicates that the major benefit of such systems could be in the way that they combine flexibility with the illusion of user control.
Defeasible Rules in Content Selection and Text Structuring
It is suggested that, for certain types of descriptive text, the characterisation of discourse struc-turing mechanisms as operations on or involving defeasible rules provides an attractive framework for addressing important issues in content selection/structuring.
The media equation - how people treat computers, television, and new media like real people and places
This chapter discusses the media equation, which describes the role media and personality play in the development of a person's identity and aims at clarifying these roles.
