Belgrade audience will witness the creation of this project, scheduled to be completed for the Belgrade Jazz Festival With their personal rendition of jazz through electronics, they bring a new dimension and a fresh view on the future of this music genre.
The concert for the International Jazz Day is only a first of many events scheduled to mark the anniversary, 35th edition of the Belgrade Jazz Festival, organized by Belgrade Youth Center and under the City of Belgrade patronage, from 22 to 27 October As every year, the audience will have the opportunity to listen to more than 20 performers and meet the top and latest achievements on the international and national jazz scene.
Jazz Crawl is a festival concept that involves the movement of both performers and audiences from one venue to another. Unlike the big jazz festivals whose program is conditioned by the music market, Jazz Crawl is an intimate musician story in which jazz artists are incorporated by organizers into exclusive small combos only for that night. An additional dynamic of the event is obtained by exchanging artists between two concert blocks. Besides Jazz Crawl, we are also planning other projects that affirm the jazz culture in Belgrade and communicate with cultural centers in the region and beyond.

Functional visualizations are more than innovative statistical analyses and computational algorithms. They must make sense to the user and require a visual language system that uses colour, shape, line, hierarchy and composition to communicate clearly and appropriately, much like the alphabetic and characterbased languages used worldwide between humans.

Jose, P. Gray, Affective feedback: an investigation into the role of emotions in the information seeking. In questa sezione viene proposta una rassegna dei principali testi di riferimento rispetto al tema design thinking e dei principali risultati della sua applicazione in diversi ambiti di ricerca e produzione. Vengono descritti brevemente le metodologie e i risultati migliori delle ricerche di rilievo con particolare approfondimento per quelle presenti nell'ambito del computer science e della progettazione di applicazioni digitali.
Per la rilevanza della tesi vengono inoltre ricordati alcuni contributi scientifici che indagano come il design-thinking possa essere integrato con altri approcci di sviluppo e progettazione di software eg. Agile methods. Design-thinking refers to the theoretical sum of the skills, methodologies, tools and processes, peculiar of design.
Design-thinking as a concept, indeed, has been recently theorized in the attempt to formalize and convey the theoretical base and method of the design disciplines to high school courses students. As a style of thinking, it is generally considered the ability to combine empathy for the context of a problem, creativity in the generation of insights and solutions, and rationality to analyze and fit solutions to the context. Design-thinking is exploited in several, different contexts. A rich range of case studies of applied design-thinking can be found in R.
Curedale4  with examples of application 62 Nowadays, the concept has been upgraded to an upper level of thinking approach, called by Nussbaum, B. Liedtka and T. As explained and described in the book by C. An example of a design-thinking process, could see seven steps: - define - research - ideate - prototype - choose implement - learn. Like the design process described by B. Moggridge the design-thinking Hasso Plattner Institute of Design process is iterative and not linear. They are indeed iterative process, where the design steps can be often taken simultaneously and are followed and repeated in a non sequential order.
Dym, A. Agogino, O. Eris, D. Frey and L. Employing Design Principles. Six refers to Design thinking as an opposite way to proceed compared to engineering. Engineering is acknowledged to be a field which experts many designers will collaborate with. Design thinking may be the complete opposite - identifying as many alternative designs as possible that satisfy the most requirements and sacrifice perhaps only one or just a few.
The possibility of applying design-thinking to information visualization has still to be fully explored and the research here presented was driven by the goal to define a useful toolset to help developers going in this direction believing in its strong effectiveness. Finally, being visual thinking vital for the design-thinking but also a core aspect of the information representation here considered, a key text for this research is  Ware C.
Design methods 1 - Design methods 2 - ways to apply design-thinking. Get creative! How to build innovative companies. Designing for Growth: A design-thinking Toolkit for Managers 8. Symbols, signs, and metaphors are used through the medium of sketching, diagrams and technical drawings to translate abstract requirements into concrete objects. The way designers communicate, then, is through understanding this way of coding design requirements in order to produce built products.
Engineering design-thinking, Teaching and Learning Defining Ease of Use Lo studio della letteratura scientifica ha consentito di identificare una tassonomia dei tipi di dati e dei compiti tasks e obiettivi goals dell'utente, di confrontare le fasi del processo di design di una visualizzazione di informazioni e di una applicazione interattiva con il processo iterativo di design.
STRUMENTI: interviste - letteratura scientifica - osservazione diretta - caso studio - test e valutazione - sintesi e analisi dei risultati - visual thinking. A design-thinking approach drove the entire research process that lead to conceive the frameworks and the toolset can be defined as the result of design-thinking in action.
A preliminary literature review was essential to: - understand the theoretical frameworks and the background relative to information visualization and processes design - form a general conceptual base of the cognitive aspects to take into consideration for a better awareness of users goals and need - identify the main domain characteristics and open questions among the community of experts.
Following steps elaborating the scientific literature reviewed were: - understand and classify the kind of data concerned - understand the user mental models and behaviours and connect them to the use life cycle of the application 70 These steps led to : - define a strategy to help the developers slide the centre of the design process from the system to the user and boost the user awareness - define design frameworks and a methodology to exploit them - define tools to apply the strategy and the frameworks - prepare a prototype of the toolset - evaluate the tools conceived and the inquiry process proposed.
A first step to define what the contribute of design methodologies and approaches could be, has been apply design thinking frameworks to define the problem, the actors to which the research addresses to and the scenario of application. A direct collaborative experience allowed to verify and analyse the processes undertaken by developers and outline the differences between System Centred and User Centred development. An attentive reflection through the entire research course allowed meta-research about the dynamics of multidisciplinary collaboration between designers and engineers and the integration of design education, that could be interesting to develop in further works.
Taxonomy of data To design an information visualization the first step needed is to understand the different kind of data and the encoding channels. The kind of data here involved are primarily numeric or symbolic rather than physical e. Spatial data: where? Ordered data: how much? Relational data: why? What kind of connection relates them? What is the nature of the connection? Taxonomy of users' tasks and goals To better understand the users' needs and conceive their behaviours it has been useful to organize possible user tasks and goals in a schematic visualization that takes into consideration different factors interconnected and interdependent including the cognitive processes involved in each task and the cognitive ability required.
The first cognitive goal is to understand the received information. To achieve this goal any human being will seek to achieve a set of unconscious goals. Users' goals are, in fact, divided into two categories Conscious and Unconscious goals Conscious goals are rational intentions of the user, the purposes that drive the user to satisfy a mindful need intentionally conceived resulting from a thinking process, a intentionally pursued result. Unconscious goals are those unintentional need of the human cognitive process, instinctive purposes to be achieved to allow human reasoning ability.
To understand any information input, perceived by the five senses, humans need to create mental models, to support memory, and to distinguish and organize the informations. To achieve each of this unconscious goal a user will perform a set of tasks, for example see the big picture, dig into details, see properties of the items, see the categories and their properties, see the origins of items, etc. At a higher more complex level, particularly when managing relational data, humans will perform an analysis of the input data.
For this purpose a second set of cognitive goals must be achieved through another set of tasks. This analysis can be descriptive or predictive. To perform a descriptive analysis a user unconscious goals are, for example, create a mental map, organize elements into a structure, which are at the base of ontology building , draw a story out of data. The possible tasks to achieve this goals are numerous, for example : see the relations, see the relation types, define hierarchies, find patterns, find anomalies and differences, find clusters, cross compare items or categories, find trends and patterns, find unexpected behaviours, etc.
Predictive analysis are performed in order to make predictions about future events, to identify risks and opportunities. Information visualization process After performing a literature review I have analysed the information visualization design process proposed by B.
Fry5 that, as he states is, by necessity an iterative one6. Referring to this iterative process I could point out that the problems the user might encounter refers to one or more steps of the process, hence I have started defining why this problems emerge. According to the initial hypothesis the mentioned steps must be faced with a user-centred approach. To decide how to filter, parse, represent and then refine and how to design the interaction it is necessary to know who is going to use the visualization and to define what are the data to be represented and what it's structures could be on the base of what is the user purpose.
Since cognitive functions are influenced by user role and context it is important to define when and where the visualization will be used. For this reason was useful to design a visualization that combines the iterative process with the frameworks proposed. The infografic of a taxonomy of tasks and goals with the references to cognitive abilities required and the possible interaction with the data. To elaborate the version in the image aside it was used an exel file see image below that resulted quite complex and not very usable. The infografic is supposed to be used as inspiration for defining possible users goals ans how they could be achieved interacting with the application.
As emerged collaborating with developers the distinction between tasks and goals is a main issue to take into consideration and it's not always clear for them. The taxonomy could be completed and upgraded. Visual supports Visual tool 01 — System vs User-centred approach The slides img pag represent the different approach to application development and can be used by the interviewer to illustrate to the developer the differences between user-centred and system-centred processes. Visual tool 02 — Visual tool inquiry method description This digital interactive tool, elaborated using an online tool Prezi can be useful to inform the developer about how the collaboration will be conducted.
The taxonomy contains only a limited number of possibilities, that are the most common and frequent, thus has to be used only for hints and for inspiration and could profitably be increased and upgraded with further topics for each case. Visual tool 04 — fulfilling the scenario.
This template can be use to elaborate a detailed scenario answering the frameworks questions. The developer will use colored post-it to write the answer to the proposed questions sticking them in correspondence to the relative question. The template has been changed from the initial version, because the post-it flexibility allows to reflect better the progressive fulfilment of the scenario and the possibility of adding information gradually.
Visual tool 05 — evaluation module An empty module can be used in the test phase to report the user problem. The module is a grid were the problems can be reported as described by the user, analysed by the user point view emotional, perceptual, cognitive and from the system side communication, visualization, interaction. The module, exploited with users in the first evaluation step was useful to better understand the origin of the problems that emerged and can be exploited to communicate them to other members of the team. The discovery hub — a case study For the research it was analysed and used the case study of Discovery Hub.
The case study was useful to evaluate the toolset and more specifically the frameworks conceived on this application. It widens your cultural and knowledge horizons by revealing and explaining unattended information. Based on Wikipedia and DBpedia data, Discovery Hub is cross-domain and works on numerous topics including music, cinema, literature but also politics, automobile and much more. It allows performing queries in an innovative way and helps you to navigate rich results. As a hub, it proposes redirections to others platforms to make you benefit from your discoveries Youtube, Deezer and more.
The purpose is enable ta system solving composite, potentially heterogeneous, interest queries. It is an exploratory search engine offering advanced querying, browsing and explanation strategies for discovery purposes. The classes in the propagation domain are used as navigational items to build facets e. Band, Film. Classes are chosen in decreasing count order. A set of filters per facet is proposed using DBpedia categories thanks to the query below.
To foster discovery we put in evidence categories i. It aims to drive user in unexpected browsing paths and thus augments the discovery potential of the application. Filters have a cumulative effect. When a user is interested or intrigued by an item, can ask for three different explanations thanks to three features. The criteria of relevance and the algorithm working depend on technical constraints related to speed in performing the operations and to the dimension of the data to compute; - features and categories of a node are given on an objective base from the database.
In papers this aspect was not developed but exploiting the hub as a recommendation system is one of the goal the developers. Design activities. Cognitive Function Analysis 6. Computational information design 7. Sketching User Experiences. I design frameworks proposti, elemento fondamentale del toolset, sono costituiti dalle 6W. Le 6w che hanno una lunghissima storia nella filosofia e nella retorica occidentale e vengono utilizzate in differenti settori, costituiscono la base concettuale dell'approccio tipico delle discipline del design al progetto. A queste domande fondamentali viene aggiunta la domanda "What if?
The power of asking questions has long tradition since ancient greek and roman culture. Main part of the methodology is Problem-Based Learning PBL , a student-centred pedagogical method that relies on active learning and in the personal involvement in constructing knowledge. PBL was expanded from pedagogical, educational method into a scientific research method. National Science Educational Standards of In every project, included a paper writing, it is vital to have clear mind of these elements, that should always be kept well visible in front of the developer.
Research practice that ignores context is doomed to misunderstanding and misrepresentation. To design an information visualization application the goals to keep in mind are users goals and how to make the application functionalities enhance them. For this reasons, as stated before, the 6Ws are supposed to be useful, in this kind of projects, to trace user- centred, contextualized scenario. Answering these question will help: better define the issue to face the application strong points, decide the audience and the context of use and most important the purpose of use.
This question has to be reformulated several times for each W question to generate new possibilities. A particular relevance has to be put on the question WHY? It also allowed to investigate the application potentialities revealing new possibilities. Dewey Logic: The Theory of Inquiry 2. In questa sezione si riporta il prototipo dei templates elaborati. Lo schema mostra in quale step del processo di applicazione dei frameworks i templates possono essere sfruttati.
Il formato A3, risulta preferibile, per agevolare la collaborazione e l'interazione. I template riportati nelle pagine seguenti sono stati pensati come supporto al processo collaborativo user-centred di design di una applicazione interattiva di visualizzazione di informazioni. Lo schema in queste pagine fornisce indicazione in quale momento del processo di utilizzo dei frameworks di progetto si ritiene i template possano essere sfruttati.
Due tipi di template sono distinti cromaticamente. A main issue among user experience communities1 is how to actually implement heuristics prioritizing web usability guidelines and best practices2. A shared agreed concept is that heuristics must be contextualized, and chosen for the specific application. For this reason a selection of heuristics, result of a literature review of existing heuristics concerning UI, experience design, human-computer interaction and information visualization are given to the developers, in a template as decisional support.
The heuristics here reported have been chosen on the base of the case study as an example of interactive information visualization. Their use is supposed to support the developer in making the choice of what elements to represent, how to represent them and how to design usability in interaction. Too many elements that convey similar information are not necessary. Elements conveying different information should be clearly distinguished to avoid confusion.
If it has been proved to be effective and simple to achieve an intended goal first the user will interact further. As the user has been allowed to arrive to a certain content or page should be able to go back. Connection between two items must be two-way, a item connected to another one should be linked back. The Heuristic n 10 represent the core concept of the design frameworks proposed. In  Jacko, J. Pages London: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, With T.
In particolare viene simulato l'utilizzo della domanda "what if? Le risposte a ciascuna domanda contribuiscono a completare in maniera progressiva anche le informazioni relative ad altre domande e complessivamente a completare uno scenario d'uso dell'applicazione utile come base per il design dell'architettura dell'informazione del sistema. Idealmente si prevede che il processo di "intervista" sia guidato da un membro del team di sviluppo con un background personale nei settori di ICT e visualizzazione di informazioni e preparato ad un approccio metodologico adeguato al design-thinking.
The ideal situation to apply design-thinking to the development of interactive information visualization is a collaborative process. For this reason the design frameworks and the inquiry process would involve an interviewer ideal would be a visual or interaction designer, or HCI expert with a designthinking orientation and preparation and the application developer or developers knowledge engineer or computer scientist.
During the collaborative interview they will exploit the given tools to design the application. In particular the interviewer will lead the interview with an inquiry approach exploiting the given design frameworks to trace a user-centred contextualized scenario. Gradually the answers to the given question will help tracing a more and more detailed scenario. As already explained a most relevant attitude during the. The interviewer will help the developer tracing the scenario suggesting users goals, possible different situations and motivations.

The scenario will help defining the main elements of the system to be chosen and how they have to be organized to match with the identified users goals, the scenario will also be the base upon which to design the system interface and develop the interaction possibility. The following is an example of the inquiry method applied to the Discovery Hub. To Identify the user allows to formulate a first important distinction and the need to imagine how the users will find and access the application: first access user - how does the user arrive to the Discovery Hub?
What can be shown to retain a regular user, and increase the possibility that will continue using the system daily? What is the hub? What goals can it enhance? How should it be used? What is the hub utility? What is its working core? What does the user have to know about the hub? What abilities are required to the user? What are its strong points? What are the weaknesses? Any difference in the interface? What if is NOT very confident in the browser functionality? Why do other similar systems fail or are successful?
What distinguishes the hub from other utilities? What makes it an innovative resource? What is its content? What are the data? What is their structure? What are the possible categories? Are there subcategories? Are there patterns or repeated elements? What are the data properties? Do they pertain to a specific period? A specific country? What are the relations? Between single items? Among classes? Between a class and its subclasses? Among subclasses? What typology of relations can the hub show? Connection — containment — proximity — similarity? What does the developer wants to show to the users?
What of this information can the user find in the hub? What does the developer want to show? Which of this goal wants to achieve? How will the user interact with the system? How does the system show this information? How can relational data be represented? How can a user distinguish the typology of connections? How can the visualization enhance the outlined user goals? How is it possible to design the system interface to optimize its potentialities? Can be given an adjustable, personalizable profile? Can be given a personal search history to recall the query and retrace the discovery made?
Can be given personalized recommendations on the base of personal navigation history or on the base of shared interests with other community members? What if is female? Can the interface be neutral or personalized? What if the results were differentiated? What if the user is Arabic mother tongue? What if is not very confident in the browser functionality? What if the user is accustomed to other search engines?
What if the user is a curious person and wants to explore and discover information? What if is not curious just want quick specific answers to queries? What if the knowledge is superficial and the user wants more information and deepen the basic general knowledge? It is important to clearly and precisely define the system utilities and potentialities in order to exploit them at best.
Are there. Do they pertain to a specific period or specific country? Are there Subjective relations? Where is the user going to use the hub? What if the user uses it at home on holidays or free time? What if in the office for work? On what support? When is the user going to use the hub? What if the user will use it alone? What if will be with friends? What if the user hasn't much time to explore it? What if the user uses the hub occasionally? What if uses it on a daily base? Why does the user wants to use the hub? What if the user wants to: - find a specific item, class, subclass?
- Communicating the Environment to Save the Planet.
- 12222 Global Celebrations;
- Bacheca Green Daily.
- Corriere della Sera.
- The Wit and Wisdom of Steve Jobs.
Why does the user wants to see this kind of information? Which of this goal wants to enable? How can the user find this information in the hub data? The process is clearly a nonlinear one. The scenario is, indeed, traced completing progressively each of the six topics corresponding to each question and some answers. For example the answer the question WHO? Tracing the user profile grows with the progression of the following answers. While answering the question WHEN? For this reason post-it should be used to exploit the possibility of adding them progressively and moving them where needed.
This question, indeed, refers directly to the user goals. This question will have to be formulated and repeated taking into consideration both the conscious and unconscious goals of the user. To help the developers in this step the given taxonomy can be a valid base as a a reminder of central aspects to take account of and suggesting unconscious goals. It is impossible to imagine all the possible user goals but certainly some most common or most likely can be defined. Organizing the information and the system interaction according to this goals will enable the user to understand the application purposes, have a clear mind of its functionalities and thus enable also the achievement of other more complex goals.
Clearly not all the emerged considerations might correspond, first of all, to the developers goal and some answers may not allow an interesting improvement to the system. The choice has to be explicitly made by the developer. The solutions chosen by the developer should be guided by the goal to find the best options that enables the application to merge and satisfy the most relevant and interesting ideas and make sure that the application utilities match users' goals. To this purpose the developer might take into consideration the general heuristics suggested session heuristics chosen to be helpful in this step of the process and support decision making.
Reviewing the traced scenario and the reflections emerged thanks to the questions the developer will remove the post-it with the ideas that does not need to be taken into consideration or developed further in a first instance, and keep them for further development. While answering the questions, it might be useful to sketch ideas on papers or white boards for example: - answering the question WHAT?
The answers from the questions WHEN? It is important to take note of examples known to check and confront the applications and take inspiration from their strong points and try to improve the weaknesses. As shown in the schema the templates have been conceived to follow step by step the design process. Inoltre dal secondo step di valutazione emerge che la procedura e il toolset , ancora da perfezionare, costituiscono un supporto efficace per aumentare negli sviluppatori la consapevolezza degli utenti finali e prevedere le loro aspettative e obiettivi, guidando la progettazione user-centred non solo dell'interfaccia e della rappresentazione delle informazioni ma dell'intera architettura dell'applicazione.
STRUMENTI: interviste - osservazione diretta - caso studio - prototipo - test e valutazione - sintesi e analisi ragionata dei risultati - supporti visivi. The frameworks were meant to be validated in three steps. The first step was held in the test phase of the development process As said before, the design process is an iterative process with different steps. This option harmonize with the design-thinking approach that relies on the use of early stages of prototypes to be refined according to users' feedback.
The first step goal was to verify if the frameworks are useful to analyse the application usability and understand possible user problems. The second step consisted in a direct interview with the developers. During this meeting the proposed inquiry process and the templates were exploited in a collaborative session. The goal was to state if the toolset is useful to better understand the application usability problems and to help planning the redesign.
In this step were followed the conceived approach to apply the frameworks and to use the templates. The goal to achieve, in this case, was to state to what extent the developers had taken into consideration the end-users. The second step of the evaluation was useful to verify the process effectiveness and to highlight strong and weak points of the toolset to refine the prototype In the following sections will be presented in details the preparation and the results of the two steps.
A third step, is the projection of a future work. It would involve testing the entire toolset, refined after the second step results, with other developers of similar applications. The third step could be applied in two different step of the development process: in the prototype and test phase of a working prototype and in earlier stages define and research of the design process.
Sono stati scelti cinque volontari, con differenti modelli mentali dell'applicazione cui sono stati proposti due scenari ciascuno con due obiettivi da raggiungere. In questa sezione viene descritta la procedura del test e i risultati ottenuti. The first step to evaluate the frameworks consisted in testing the Discovery Hub on five volunteers. A first trial session was held on Mr Giboin. Applying the frameworks to trace the user profile answering the question who? This distinction, as will be explained in the recommendations section, is most important to correctly design the interaction.
Another consideration was made: Mr Giboin was aware of the intended purposes of the hub, had a correct Mental Model1 of the application. We realized that other users, including the test volunteers, might have had a similar or a different previous knowledge of the Hub or, oppositely, might have never heard of it before. We decided that it could be interesting to verify if a different starting point in the application knowledge would imply different responses and different behaviours. For this reason the five volunteers, all first time users, were chosen with different preconceived Mental Models and knowledge of the.
Their knowledge was verified in the short interview at the beginning of the test. Five Mental Models of first time users have been outlined as follows and the volunteers were selected in order to have an example each: No Mental Model — user n. As will be explained in the results analysis section, distinguishing this five type of user and relative MM was useful not only to analyse the problems that emerged in achieving the application comprehension goal, but also to compare and analyse the results of other, following goals. The problems that emerged during the test were, firstly, formulated and described as reported by the users or detected by the tester during the evaluation phase.
Its purpose of use is to assist the user in exploratory search, to enhance the discovery and find recommendations about new interesting items and topics starting from a fuzzy query, or a referential item. On the base of this developer statement, the first aim of the test, was to evaluate the user comprehension of the application scope and detect and identify the problems, encountered by the user, in understanding the system utilities, and to verify the effectiveness of the interface in communicating the system goals.
What elements are connected? The test, for this reasons was also focused on evaluating the validity of the results representation and organization and the connection visualization. The visualization of the relations among the results in fact is a main topic of the hub, for this reason the test aimed at verifying the effectiveness of the visualization of relational data3 and the organization of the conveyed information. Another important aim of the test was to detect the user cognitive, unconscious goals in performing each task in the process of achieving a conscious goal.
Results Minor problems Minor problems of the Discovery Hub, as emerged from the test, are here considered those problems, not related to cognitive functions but mainly to perceptual problems and dependent only on a non-optimal design of the visual interface and of the interaction. This kind of problems are most likely to be difficult to be prevented in the first design phase without a working prototype. Even if they interfere with the interaction, complicating the accomplishment of a task and thus might trouble the smoothness of the navigation to the point of pushing the user to abandon the application, they do not directly prevent the achievement of a goal, and do not need a global redesign of the application to be fixed.
Minor problems are less interesting for the present research purposes, for this reason they will not be examined in depth here. Nonetheless, it can be useful to check out also this kind of problems found before releasing a new version, especially because often this problems exacerbate the main ones. Thus to help preventing similar issues, they are reported in Appendix A Main problems Main problems seems, instead, to originate from cognitive problems and emotional biases.
The test, in fact, demonstrates that main usability problems depends on missed goals either conscious or unconscious, that correspond to the user's needs and expectations. As shown in fig. Most severe problems, detected by the users can, indeed, be lead back to them. In the following pages the problems will be described from the user point of view and will be related to the conscious and unconscious goals.
Communicate the system criteria for the results selection, meet personal criteria of similarity in the items displayed as results of a query. The user has personal criteria and the system criteria are not relevant enough to allow the user assume them. Understand the system criteria for the results selection, meet personal criteria for similarity in the items displayed as results of a query.
This problem is generated by a wrong mental model, that in particular was given to the user by the developer and refers to the problem mentioned above. The user wants to use the system as a search engine expecting to find a list of web pages, images, information and other types of files.
HUB 24 The user with a fuzzy MM and the user who had not a correct cognition of the hub purposes and functionalities were mislead by some elements of the interface, that made them think that the hub is a search engine. HUB The purposes of the hub are not immediately self evident. The introductory explanatory text of the login page is not effective to enable this goal. HUB 01 All of the users tested has jumped over it without reading, considering it a common disclaimer, that are most of the time instinctively avoided.
Understand the system organization of the results display, organize the results into a mental map, divide the results into categories or subsets. The user cannot easily find explanations about how the displayed results are organized. Img Hub 02 The results page displayed after a query is a mosaic where the elements are perceived as:.
The user needs to organize the results and refine the search. In the detailed list, where filters are offered, this possibility is not detected. The filter buttons on top of the page are not detected by the user. This reveals to be a useful utility after the user is informed of it. Img Hub 04 In the list visualization the results are numbered suggesting a hierarchy of contents. The users, though, detected that the ranking is not coherent to any understandable criteria. The hierarchy of the elements displayed is not clear and the elements in common are not visible immediately.
This requires that the user performs many task, keeping information in mind and loosing the important visual support. Common elements are not visible at first and the user must look for them. The user interaction possibilities with the results are limited. The users would be curious to discover why the two items are connected or they might like to know more about them, but they will not perform the complex set of tasks required to get the informations unless the item is considered really important.
To allow knowledge building it is necessary for humans to create mental maps of the topic of interest. The results are not represented in cognitive comprehensible structure, the ontology behind the results is not detectable. When a complex query is performed, for example two or more elements together, no element of the interface is communicating that the results displayed refers to the items in common to the two searched ones.
Create a mental model of an unknown item and evaluate it, understand the connected items and evaluate them. The user will try to get more information about it relying on a traditional search engine or using Wikipedia. The results don't satisfy the mental criteria Good relations are expected Hard to understand the nature of relations. Semantic mapping missing Don't understand the results given Don't understand the relations. It's interesting noticing that the user who had a wrong MM of the application considering the Hub a Movie recommendation system could not discover any interesting information.
Being too focused on a specific goal the user was not open in digging into information, the curiosity was not stimulated and the frustration of not being able to achieve the goal was preventing the possibility of a wider exploration. Results analysis For the test results analysis were prepared two visualizations Results Analysis 01, Results Analysis 02 that helped pointing the following interesting remarks: About the mosaic.
The scenarios were designed to evaluate the representation of the information displayed and the user difficulties and needs in understanding the nature of the connections and be supported in making a decision. The Mosaic was useful in the first scenario only for the user who had a correct preconceived mental model. This user knew why the results were displayed and what to look for. The users with no mental model and with a limited one, who could understand the application potentialities after performing a few tasks, considered the mosaic representation partially useful.
Other users could not understand the mosaic representation. For none of the users the mosaic visualization was helpful in the second scenario where there were less pictures available and the topic was not known. All of the users preferred the detailed list visualization. This visualization though had to be suggested since, the two possibilities of results visualization had to be explained to all the five users.
The users were asked to evidence three tools that helped them fulfil the given goal. The graph emerge to be the second most useful tool confirming the power of visual explanations. Other problems detected by the users refers to perceptual and emotional aspects. In fact subjective criteria in evaluating a recommendation are not available in the application.
The users whose criteria for choosing a film in the first scenario were more subjective, Feelings, Emotions, Atmosphere see appendix C could not fulfil the goal Cognitive bias3. This user was expecting different results and was not satisfied by the suggested similar results, nonetheless, not having a preconceived mental model of the hub as a recommendation system, could enjoy finding other interesting information. Furthermore, for this user, it was easier to achieve the goals of the second scenario because had no emotional criteria to fulfil. Items that might not find the personal interests were harder to find for other users because they could not compare the elements and make a clear idea of the item.
This was especially true in the second scenario where the elements were unknown. In this case instead the user who had less strict personal criteria of choice, not having expectations or emotional restrictions, could fulfil the goals more easily, being driven by curiosity and open mind. We can argue that having a specific goal, like identify an item as a recommendation, is not the main utility of the hub that is instead better used as an information discovery tool. GOAL 06 Learn significant information.
The test results analysis helped, thus, to outline a mismatching between the developer MM and the system utilities. In fact after the test session a question emerged: does the system functionalities correspond to the developer MM and to the application intended goals? Does the description and the explanation, given by the developer, correspond to the interface functionalities and potentialities? If not is it possible to correct the application to achieve the prefigured goal?
How to? The wrong mental model was given to the user tested by a direct presentation of the application by the developers. The hub is a tool that enables to discover relations, find items connected to a searched one and thus discover interesting and unexpected information. It is necessary to take into consideration three important aspects: 1. This kind of utility is quite new among web applications; users are accustomed to common search engines and to recommendation systems.
Both this applications work in a different way and display information in a different way. A recommendation system cannot prescind from a judgeDiscovery hub recommendation system ment that involves also emotional aspects. Effective recommendations can be made only by humans see img Recommendation system vs discovery engine.
Missing to take into consideration this aspect the hub, as it is, cannot be effective especially if compared to other recommendation tool. First of all, it must be considered that users are used to think Mental Model about recommendations in a sense of "similarity" between same kind of items: for example from a mentioned film, song, painting, photographer and we expect suggestions of other films, songs, paintings, photographers that might like. Another big difference from traditional recommendation system is in the way the information are provided. The hub should communicate this great potentiality and show a new way of discovering items and building knowledge from semantic connections.
Discovery hub says: "you might want to know that For example: if somebody says that loves Nordic countries than I will say "oh yes! Do you know the Hurtigruten? Have you ever seen the northern lights? Have you ever been to Iceland? You should listen to the Sigur Ros! And watch "Ondine" the film with Colin Farrell, who also played in "In bruges". Would you like to visit Norway? Ontology example behind this example allows to find a big range of information in different fields, from the smallest details to the bigger picture starting from any of the mentioned element, let's say for example the traditional cheese.
The scenario of the test intentionally did not include the possibility of finding a different typology of information to evaluate the spontaneous possibility of making discoveries. The users tested were too concentrated in fulfilling the given task, using the Hub as a recommendation tool, that the possibility of other discovery was perceived as a distraction. A system can give information, can show common elements, can compare and associate items according to one or more of the different aspects that compose the complexity of an item. The kind of similarity a technological system can detect and suggest is based only on shared elements, but cannot comprehend human evaluating criteria set by human factors.
The cast is the same, so from that point of view they are similar, two comedies are similar because they are supposed to cheer up the public, two french music artists are similar because they are french and they are music artists. Human factors comprehend of course non measurable values like emotions, feelings, atmosphere, memories, taste. To allow the Hub to be a recommendation system, as the developers wish to, a few changes have to be made and they will be described in the recommendation session.
Discovery hub search engine. If the user will use the hub as an alternative, for instance, to Google or other search engines, that means to understand what an item is and learn more information about it, or find links on the web, will probably be disappointed. Google and other common search engines give links to exhaustive information about the item itself. The results displayed will give enough information to identify it and will also provide the most relevant sites relative to where the item can be found, helping the user compose a satisfying knowledge and a good understanding of the searched item.
The Discovery Hub, instead, provides very short explanation, a limited number of links and generally doesn't include the direct link to the main site of the item. If a user needs to learn more information about an item will probably get more satisfaction performing a query on a traditional search engine The powerful, innovative aspect of the Discovery Hub, instead, is in showing a net of connections that standard search applications don't show. Discovery engines like discovery hub might allow an innovative and interesting use of online information. Nonetheless it is necessary to attend the user through the system functionalities to create a new.
It is vital that it shows new possibilities, and the advantages of semantic construction of information connections. To develop the Discovery Hub is not designing an application for a function, it is designing a new function. The user needs to become confident in the potentialities of the application, and learn to appreciate the possibility of this kind of utility, especially considering the common case of users, non confident with the ontology concept and semantic research, who might have more problems understanding this functionality.
As demonstrated in the example above this difference can be made simply in the way the results are proposed. If the users think that are consulting a recommendation system and expect to be proposed results relevant as a recommendations many of. It would be necessary to figure out what the users were looking for, to understand what their evaluating criteria might be. Who is the user? Why is the user using the application? So why is the user curios to discover more information about an item? Does the user want to find similar items?
Is the user an expert of that topic? For example: what if a user is looking for french rock bands starting from a known one e. What if a user is looking for famous artistic couples, what if a user wants to know more about french music? What if a user is a big fan of Serge Gainsbourg and wants to know more about him?
