The LOIS research project

LOIS aims to educate future generations to take advantage of the web, and also to help design better information services.

To do so, LOIS has developed a special extension for the Firefox and Chrome browsers that captures browsing actions (queries, clicks, URLs, etc.) that are performed while conducting an online search. These search histories are then analyzed statistically and with data-mining algorithms to identify search profiles and patterns.

While we all love Lois Lane, in this case LOIS stands for Late-teenagers Online Information Search, a research project funded by the Swiss National Research Foundation and leby by prof. Luca Botturi and prof. Silvia Giordano at the Scuola universitaria professionale della Svizzera italiana (SUPSI) in collaboration with the Pädagogische Hochschule Schwyz (PHSZ).

The project counts on a highly skilled and motivated research team: Martin Hermida (PHSZ), Loredana Addimando, Luca Luceri, Marzia Galloni, Azza Bouleimen, Felipe Cardoso and Chiara Beretta.

The Late-teenagers Online Information Search (LOIS) project is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation under the grant agreement 100019_188967.
