Helios@AI4EU Cafe: Context recognition and information overload in social media and messaging – results of two user studies

HELIOS@AI4EU CAFÉ | THURSDAY, SEPT 28TH, 2021 | 15:00 CET


Join HELIOS@AI4EU Café “Context recognition and information overload in social media and messaging – results of two user studies” with Katri Grenman, Research Scientist at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland in the Future Consumer Team

The Helios@AI4EU Cafe has presented the Speaker Laura Ricci, Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Pisa.

This Café session is a cross-project collaboration between the Horizon 2020 European Research Projects HELIOS and AI4EU in the current Next Generation Internet Program.

Description of the talk:  With today’s smart phones, it is easy to get inundated with messages and notifications from different applications. You can choose to silence your phone or certain chats completely, but sometimes there might be time-critical messages you’re missing. Context recognition might help in recognising when certain messages should be prioritized. How do people deal with information overload and feel about context recognition? The results of an online study as well as the preliminary results of a recent social media application user test are presented.
