Social Approach to Context-Aware Retrieval
In this paper we present a general purpose solution to Web content perusal by means of mobile devices, named Social Context-Aware Browser. This is a novel approach for the information access based on the users’ context, whose aim is to retrieve what the user needs, even if she did not issue any query. Our solution is built upon a social model that exploits the collaborative efforts of the whole community of users to control and manage contextual knowledge, related both to situations and resources. This paper presents a general survey of our solution, describing the idea and presenting an implementation approach. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.3.3 [Information Storage and Retrieval]: Information Search and Retrieval Keywords Context-aware retrieval, mobile search, social, folksonomy, Web 2.0
