Abstract

Interest, the curious emotion, plays a crucial role as an intrinsic motivator to encounter new things. It also plays a role in the establishment of longer term interests that people develop. Providing support for the experience of interest, and managing the development of enduring interests has potential to augment the effectiveness of information streaming applications. This poster briefly surveys 'interest' and considers the implications of a hypothetical Interest Machine that is able to measure interest and model interests.
