HOW CAN A QUANTUM IMPROVEMENT IN PERSONAL AND GROUP INFORMATION MANAGEMENT BE REALIZED?

Roger Tagg, Tamara Beames

Abstract

A number of authors have pointed out that the IT technology used by individuals and groups for general information work support has not advanced very far in the last decade. At the same time the level of information and cognitive overload on individuals has continued to rise. Research has been done in several areas (e.g. text mining and categorization, email threads etc) but a significant improvement in everyday tools has yet to be seen. This paper addresses the current problems, describes a range of issues that need to be addressed, and discusses how it might be possible in the future to advance to a new level of IT support.
