Workgroup and Collaborative Computing
To develop knowledge management techniques for groupware and CSCW systems.
Funding for this research was received from the following sources:
- National Science Foundation (#IIS-9800696), "An Intelligent CSCW Workbench: Analysis, Visualization and Agents." 8/15/98-7/31/02, $273,000.
- University of Illinois/sub-NSF (IRI 94-11318COOP), "Building the Interspace: Digital Library Infrastructure for a University Engineering Community." 9/1/94-8/31/99, $678,041.
- University of Illinois/sub-DARPA (N6601-97-C-8535). "The Interspace Prototype: An Analysis Environment based on Scalable Semantics." 7/1/97-6/30/00, $1,078,991.
We wish to acknowledge the contributions of the following institutions and individuals:
- Center for the Management of Information (CMI) and Dr. Jay Nunamaker for their support and the use of the GroupSystems session outputs.
- 200 raw Group Systems (GS) electronic meeting comments.
- Automatic Indexing-stop wording and algorithmic index phrase formation
- Concept Space-index phrase co-occurrence information is used to generate an automatic thesaurus for search term suggestion.
- Kohonen Self-Organization Map (SOM) Algorithms-1-D, 2-D, 3-D (VRML) displays for information categorization and visualization.
- Multi-dimensional Scaling-an alternative method to the Kohonen SOM providing information categorization and visualization in 1-D, 2-D, 3-D (VRML) displays.
