Verbal and Semantic Processes in Social Tagging
What happens when people tag resources on the Web? Do they just mindlessly copy other people’s tags, or do they generate tags from a deliberate and meaningful activity? In fact they do both.

In this publication, we have invented a method which allows us to look into people’s heads when they tag. And we don’t need an fMRI Scanner to do it.
And in another recent publication we have shown that a recommender service that is based on both verbal and semantic processing actually performs better than many alternative approaches.

A very nice interdisciplinary work that has lead to high level publications in cognitive psychology (ACP), HCI (CHI) and Knowledge Management (CIKM). The main work was done in the MERITS project by Paul Seitlinger.
