Title AniMap: An Interactive Visualization Supporting Serendipitous Discovery of Information about Anime
Author(s) Gobel, Balazs
Date 2013
English abstract
It is a challenging task for interaction designers to find a way to design a digital artefact supporting serendipitous discovery. Its interdisciplinary nature requires sufficient knowledge of information visualization, social navigation and serendipity. Based on literature review and prior relevant works, several traces having potential to aid such exploration were defined. Through creating and testing AniMap, an interactive graph visualization for discovering new anime clips, in this thesis I argue that such an artefact has the potential to support serendipitous discovery, owing to its features of being information visualization, interactive and in a graph layout, coupled with users’ personal interests. Even so, finding details of how to influence serendipitous discovery remain an ongoing challenge considering the dynamic nature of serendipity.
