Abstract:


In this paper, an adaptive tool for providing suggestions during the information search process is presented. The tool uses case-based reasoning techniques to find the most useful suggestions for a given situation by comparing it to a case base of previous situations and adapting the solution. The tool can learn from user participation. A small, preliminary evaluation showed a high acceptance of the tool, even if improvements are still needed.
