This is a great example of successful interdisciplinary research! Paul Seitlinger started out with a psychological model of how people process tags in social web environments. We formalized the model and then conducted a few experiments to validate the model, published at ECCE and CHI.
Thanks to a very successful cooperation with colleagues at TU Graz, we now made it to one of the premier computer science conferences on information and knowledge management with a recommender that is based on these models.
Now it will be used in the Learning Layers project to give intelligent recommendations during human sensemaking tasks.
