Broadening Access to Large Online Databases by Generalizing Query Previews
Companies, government agencies, and other types of organizations are making their large databases available to the world over the Internet. Current database front-ends do not give users information about the distribution ...
Designing StoryRooms: Interactive Storytelling Spaces for Children
Limited access to space, costly props, and complicated authoring technologies are among the many reasons why children can rarely enjoy the experience of authoring room-sized interactive stories. Typically in these kinds ...
Physical Programming: Designing Tools for Children to Create Physical Interactive Environments
en. (Also cross-referenced as UMIACS-TR-2001-67, HCIL-TR-2001-21)
Pipelined CPU-GPU Scheduling for Caches
Heterogeneous microprocessors integrate a CPU and GPU with a shared cache hierarchy on the same chip, affording low-overhead communication between the CPU and GPU's cores. Often times, large array data structures are ...
Designing a Collaborative Finger Painting Application for Children
We describe the design and implementation of a collaborative, computer-based finger painting program for children using a new hardware input device called a Multi-Touch Surface (MTS). The MTS uses a flat surface about ...
Nervous system maps on the C. elegans genome
This project begins from a synoptic point of view, focusing upon the large-scale (global) landscape of the genome. This is along the lines of combinatorial network optimization in computational complexity theory . Our ...
User Modeling for Information Access Based on Implicit Feedback
User modeling can be used in information filtering and retrieval systems to improve the representation of a users information needs. User models can be constructed by hand, or learned automatically based on feedback provided ...
Visualizing Digital Library Search Results with Categorical and Hierarchical Axes
Digital library search results are usually shown as a textual list, with 10-20 items per page. Viewing several thousand search results at once on a two-dimensional display with continuous variables is a promising ...
Jazz: An Extensible Zoomable User Interface Graphics ToolKit in Java
In this paper we investigate the use of scene graphs as a general approach for implementing two-dimensional (2D) graphical applications, and in particular Zoomable User Interfaces (ZUIs). Scene graphs are typically found ...
We introduce "fisheye menus" which apply traditional fisheye graphical visualization techniques to linear menus. This provides for an efficient mechanism to select items from long menus, which are becoming more common as ...
