3Clix project

Knowledge Technologies, Semantic Web

The 3 CLIX project is a three year project. The partners are Microsoft Technology Centre (MTC), Microsoft Research Cambridge (MSR), and the University of Southampton. The project description from the DTI is:

“The ability for the knowledge worker to rapidly search and access information within the system like design performance data forms one of the key user requirements of a virtual design system. A measure of the usability of this type of system is the number of mouse clicks an engineer needs to perform in order to access the information he requires. We propose to investigate the functional requirements of an information/knowledge and process management system to enable the user to access information within 3 mouse clicks from search or request initiation to information retrieval, by technology development aimed at enhancing existing tools and techniques. These techniques will demonstrated by deployment on the Application Case Studies scenarios providing realistic feedback to guide further development.”
