Rethinking Advanced Search

  • Tony Russell-Rose UXLabs


Tony Russell-Rose, founder of UXLabs, explores a fascinating data visualisation approach to advanced search strategy formulation “in which concepts are expressed as objects on a two-dimensional canvas and relationships are articulated using direct manipulation. This eliminates many sources of syntactic error, makes the query semantics more transparent, and offers new ways to validate, share and reproduce search strategies.” He invites eLucidate readers to test drive and evaluate it for him.
