More Augmented Conversation

August 4, 2011

Another update on the summer project? Already? Yes.

The project is really cracking on. We’re two weeks from the end and beginning to see the results roll in, every meeting brings a new version of the software with more functionality. Nick has successfully written a nice framework that allows us to input conversations and automatically retrieve search results based on the topics of those conversations. Even the voice input works (almost) and we’ve got enough time to try and move on to some content extraction ideas. I’ve now written a script to do some automatic evaluation and we’re in a position to subject the attendees of next week’s mobisoc meeting to a human evaluation, which I’m sure will be fun for all concerned.

Next: Why write?
