Web Information Filtering Lab

The focus of the research in the WIFlab is the investigation of filtering techniques in the context of the web. This includes algorithms and evaluations of searching, use of user profiles, ranking, collaboration, support for task sessions, and display techniques for small screens. Integral to this research is usability testing of the techniques with human subjects.

The big question is What can we do to help users get information from the web that is useful to them?
