Christopher Lueg's Research Activities

Research activities organized by topic (at least roughly)

On Monday, November 30, 2009 we organized Interacting with Information Technologies a workshop co-sponsored by ARC Research Network in Enterprise Information Infrastructure (EII) Taskforce on "Understanding and Extracting Value from IT Investments" and CSIRO ICT Centre (Hobart, TAS). Invited speakers were Professor Michael B. Twidale, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and Associate Professor Marcus Foth, QUT.

The ARC Research Network in Enterprise Information Infrastructure (EII) funds our "Understanding and Extracting Value from Information Technology (IT) Investments" taskforce. Coordinators are Associate Professor Joseph Davis, University of Sydney, and Professor Shirley Gregor, Australian National University.

We organized a literally ground-breaking Joint HCSNet-EII Workshop on Interactive and Ubiquitous Information Access in Sydney 16-17 May 2008. The workshop is hosted by NICTA and co-sponsored by the ARC Research Networks HCSNet, the ARC Network in Human Communication Science and EII, the ARC Network in Enterprise Information Infrastructure. Co-organizers of the workshop are Lawrence Cavedon (RMIT University and NICTA), Christopher Lueg (University of Tasmania), Diego Molla (Macquarie University) and Amanda Spink (Queensland University of Technology).

In late 2007 I completed a round-the-world "i-trip" giving talks at ASIS&T 2007 (the event defining the beginning of the trip), the Information School at the University of Washington, the Center For Information Policy Research (CIPR) at the School of Information Studies, University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee and Department of Informatics at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. The event defining the end of the trip was attending a symposium celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Artificial Intelligence Lab. My own contribution to the book is included below.

The ARC Research Network in Enterprise Information Infrastructure (EII) funds our Mobility and Accessing Information Infrastructures (II-MAT) taskforce. The taskforce consists of researchers from the University of Tasmania, the University of Sydney, the University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, James Cook University and Curtin University.

Our work on understanding the wider impact of spam filtering was featured on the ABC Science Show presented by Robyn Williams (24 June 2006). ABC is Australia's National Broadcaster.

ARC success: our ARC Research Network on Enterprise Information Infrastructure (EII) receives funding from the ARC worth $1.6M. The total funding for EII is over $3.2M over 5 years!

ARC success: Dr Toni Robertson and I got an ARC (Australian Research Council) discovery grant for "An empirically-derived conceptual framework for designing usable and useful wireless mobile applications" (DP0453139)

From Usenet to CoWebs: Interacting with Social Information Spaces, Springer 2003 (edited by C. Lueg and D. Fisher [now with Microsoft Research]) has hit the shelves. See Vol. 6, Number 4 of the peer-reviewed journal Educational Technology & Society for a review by Martyn Wild. Another review by MIT's Judith Donath can be found in New Media & Society, Volume 6, Issue 3, June 2004: "Lueg and Fisher have put together a strong collection of papers, some new, some previously published, about Usenet and related technologies. The strength of this book is its multiple perspectives on Usenet newsgroups, covering topics such as its political history, analyses of its social structure, and methods for extracting information from it."

Spam, Spam Filtering, Digital Divide, Digital Redlining

"Hotmail users and email server admins, beware: you may be unknowingly caught in the crossfire of Microsoft's war on spam. Unintended casualties include legitimate emails from domains with well-established reputations, which are systematically blocked with absolutely no notice and little recourse."

On the Gap Between Vision and Feasibility.

Abstract. Information appliances, user interfaces, and context-aware devices are necessarily based on approximations of potential users and usage situations. However, it is not an unusual experience for developers that in some areas, appropriate approximations are extremely difficult to realize. Often, these difficulties are not apparent from the beginning. Nevertheless, difficulties are rarely addressed in the pervasive computing literature as they appear to be peripheral compared to the technical challenges. In this paper, we argue that the field would largely benefit from addressing these issues explicitly. First, focussed discussions would help identify areas that have already shown to be difficult or even intractable in related disciplines, such as AI or CSCW. Second, it would help developers become aware of the difficulties and would allow them to deliberately circumvent such areas. We use example scenarios from the pervasive computing literature to illustrate these points. Difficulties to describe and to analyze impacts of pervasive computing applications indicate a need for an analysis framework providing a specific terminology.

Open Sesame!: A Look at Personal Assistants

Abstract. Software agents, or softbots, are supposedly intelligent programs that assist the user in performing repetitive, boring, and time-consuming tasks. An overview of software agents, with special attention focused on the so-called personal assistants, is presented as an introduction. Following that, an in-depth look at one of the first commercially available intelligent agents Open Sesame!, a personal assistant for managing the Macintosh desktop environment, is presented. The existing intelligent agent paradigms, we argue, break down when it comes to actively helping the end user because of flaws inherent in the current approaches to intelligent agent design. To that end, we discuss the reasons why this is, particularly with respect to Open Sesame!, and promote the notion of situatedness to be taken into account more seriously for developing software agents that actively support the user for the duration of the task at hand. As an example for a more situated approach to personal assistant design, a quick overview of a project to develop a personal assistant for news filtering is discussed.

In: Proceedings of the International Conference on the Practical Application of Intelligent Agents and Multi-Agent Technology (PAAM97), London, UK, April 21 - 23, 1997, pp. 51-60
This paper is one of the very few papers that discuss real-world experiences with "intelligent assistants". Most papers published on agents at that time (and even in these days) discuss potential benefits but we looked at the actual benefit gained by using the assistant.

This paper written by Ralf and myself describes some of the ideas the two of us developed in the thesis. It is most puzzling though that the published paper lists as a second author an unknown person that contributed neither to conducting the research nor to writing the paper. And it's unlikely that IEEE snug in another co-author isn't it.
