Interactive Museum Guide: Accurate Retrieval of Object Descriptions [chapter]

Beat Fasel, Luc Van Gool
2007 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we describe an interactive guide that is able to automatically retrieve information about objects on display in museums.  ...  The proposed interactive museum guide achieves object recognition via image matching and thus allows the use of model sets that do not need to be segmented.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to acknowledge the support by the Swiss National Museum in Zurich, Switzerland.  ...

Ontology-Based User Modeling in an Augmented Audio Reality System for Museums

Marek Hatala, Ron Wakkary
2005 User modeling and user-adapted interaction  
We explore the possibility of supporting a context-aware adaptive 16 system by linking environment, interaction object and users at an abstract semantic level 17 instead of at the content level.  ...  Among the challenges is 8 the general problem of capturing the larger context in interaction from the perspective 9 of user modeling and human-computer interaction (HCI).  ...  The rules match semantic descriptions of the objects and 528the museum environment with user information maintained by the user model. 529The content model is based on the semantic description of all the  ...
