ReActivity

This project finished in 2011

Research goals

  • to explore how to capture and visualize user activity
  • to enable scientists and groups of scientists to reflect upon, interact with and improve their research processes

Our goal is to develop:

  • Sophisticated strategies for logging activity with bilateral links between on-line and off-line data
  • Common data formats that interoperate across platforms (PC, Mac, Unix, other equipment)
  • Innovative techniques to capture events triggered by the user activity, both low-level and high-level while maintaining the relations across levels
  • Powerful methods for visualising across multiple scales and interacting with the results

ReActivity phases

  • Log platform and infrastructure for data collection and aggregation
    • Create a common format & share experiences
    • Apply our own visualisation and interaction tools to the logged data
  • Visualisation and instrumentation of scientific data logs
    • Visualisation of raw data from phase I scaled to month-long or longer logs
    • Explore strategies for meaningful sampling of data with smooth interaction and navigation
  • Mining of desktop data and interactions with visualised activities
    • Design highly interactive tools for scientists to understand and interact with their past activities
    • Create high-level interactive reflexive views that can be manipulated and reused
