F. Bakalov, I-Han Hsiao, P. Brusilovsky, B. Konig-Ries
2011 2011 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC)  
This paper presents Progressor, a visualization of open student models intended to increase the student's motivation to progress on educational content.  ...  The system visualizes not only the user's own model, but also the peers' models.  ...  This new interface, Progressor, is used to provide access to QuizJET parameterized selfassessment questions in an introductory programming class.  ...

2018 Production and operations management  
This makes a previously intractable problem solvable by decomposition into two separate, tractable problems while maintaining optimality.  ...  To manage chronic disease patients effectively, clinicians must know (1) how to monitor each patient (i.e., when to schedule the next visit and which tests to take), and (2) how to control the disease  ...  In the future, we hope to acquire access to other data sources which contain OCT data and expand our state vector to accommodate data from this testing modality.  ...

Social Navigation [chapter]

Rosta Farzan, Peter Brusilovsky
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Furthermore, as social navigation support has been an inspirational approach for various other social information access approaches, we discuss how social navigation support can be integrated with those  ...  Social navigation support is inspired by the natural tendencies of individuals to follow traces of each other in exploring the world, especially when dealing with uncertainties.  ...  Progressor attempts to address both problems by using a combination of social navigation support and social comparison.  ...
