Encouraging Serendipity in Interactive Systems [chapter]

Stephann Makri, Elaine G. Toms, Lori McCay-Peet, Ann Blandford
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
However, most existing interactive systems do not provide a fertile environment for serendipity to occur.  ...  This workshop will identify key requirements and research challenges for designing and evaluating user-centred systems that aim to encourage serendipity.  ...  Interactive systems cannot directly 'induce' serendipity.  ...

The Serendipitous Pattern In Interaction Design

Ricardo Melo, Miguel Carvalhais
2018 Zenodo  
Serendipity is increasingly becoming a concern in the design of interactive systems as an alternative to the echo chamber effects being felt in the medium.  ...  However, the concept of serendipity is one shrouded in ambiguity, which limits our abilities to regard it as an The achievable Serendipitous goal in interaction Pattern.  ...  Acknowledgements This work is financed by FCT -Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia -as part of the PhD Programme in Design «PD/00048».  ...

Exploring Serendipity's Precipitating Conditions [chapter]

Lori McCay-Peet
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This research will contribute to an emerging field of study -support for serendipity in information systems -that is striving to make our experiences in digital environments richer and more meaningful.  ...  , to understand how to best facilitate serendipity in a digital, information-rich environment.  ...  Namely, this research will indicate ways in which some precipitating conditions such as task and other people interact in a digital information search system to facilitate or hinder serendipity.  ...

From Chance to Serendipity: Knowledge Workers' Experiences of Serendipitous Social Encounters

Ekaterina Olshannikova, Thomas Olsson, Jukka Huhtamäki, Susanna Paasovaara, Hannu Kärkkäinen
2020 Advances in Human-Computer Interaction  
However, serendipity in the context of social encounters has been the subject of few empirical studies.  ...  Finally, we discuss the seemingly minor role of technology in social serendipity and research avenues to computationally enhance social serendipity.  ...  Encouragement and Persuasiveness for Value Creation and Maintenance of Social Awareness. e findings imply that even in face-to-face interactions, encounters that result in serendipity could benefit from  ...

Discovery is never by chance

Paul André, m.c. schraefel, Jaime Teevan, Susan T. Dumais
2009 Proceeding of the seventh ACM conference on Creativity and cognition - C&C '09  
Computer scientists, valuing the role of serendipity in discovery, have attempted to design systems that encourage serendipity.  ...  In this paper we show, through a formal consideration of serendipity and analysis of how various systems have seized on attributes of interpreting serendipity, that there is a richer space for design to  ...  to a system that required interaction.  ...
