Breaking out of the Filter Bubble

Some of our recent work has started to look at algorithms that should spark more creative search processes on the Web rather than leading us further along the well traveled paths. The OMFix project (‘Overcoming Mental Fixation by switching the internal spotlight: stochastic modeling of creative cognition in the lab and on the Web’) is an Austrian Science Fund project in cooperation with Dietrich Albert and Paul Seitlinger from TU Graz.

In line with this, I recently gave a “One Minute Lecture” on Breaking out of the Filter Bubble.
