The BIG ISSUE: Answering information needs in workflow

My interest for the near future is focussing on "Answering information needs in the workflow" of our users. The subject has recently been adressed by the president of OCLC/PICA during the latest LIBER-conference in Groningen. It is also the subject of a ICML9 presentation from: * Eneida A. Mendonça Department of Biomedical Informatics, Columbia University, New York, NY, USA * David Kaufman Department of Biomedical Informatics, Columbia University, New York, NY, USA * Stephen B. Johnson Department of Biomedical Informatics, Columbia University, New York, NY, USA "We have a developed a multi-faceted framework which incorporates natural language processing, speech recognition, machine learning and information retrieval methods. The development work is richly informed by ethnographic studies of clinical practice, cognitive analysis of librarian search strategies, and real time capture of information needs using a range of input devices" Looks like a lot of work, but i am curious enough to read the whole document. click on: "Here's more" to read it!
