The Maieutic Engine, beyond recommendation in cultural data
Maurice Benayoun, Hong Kong
The maieutic engine considers the user as the best filter of its desires and expectations in terms of cultural heritage and image discovery. Based on implicit queries, formal image tagging and behavior analysis, eGonomy reach a new level in content suggestion. It is a result of a large consortium including scientists and museum researcher from 10 different institutions and companies. The performances of maieutic engines are perfectly adapted to fields were words cannot suffice to define queries. Many applications can be envisioned from cultural heritage, museum design, web cultural application to e-commerce.
