Hypertext Augmenting Intelligent Knowledge Use [homepage]

Former Project: New Browser Technology

Goal: to help people to read journal articles and textbooks using portable tablet-style computers or other paper-like interfaces.

Methods: to develop (and evaluate) better browsers for reading on the WWW, and to determine how certain features could improve users' experiences:


WWW browser software that allows changing links (including fat links), annotation, including subdocuments (sticky notes) built using the multi-valent document model (see Support of Hypertextual Annotation on the Web by Huan Gao (2004) and Multivalent project at SourceForge).
