Abstract [en]

The main goal of the EdInfo project [1] is to utilize human information brokers, or editors, as a resource in adaptive information systems. An information broker can be any of the following: The dedicated expert that collects and potentially reviews literature within a restricted area of interest; The journalist that produces articles with specific reader groups in mind; The librarian that organizes incoming information and directs readers to various sources; The professional information broker, that processes specific information requests, seeks for appropriate information sources, and produces summaries of the obtained information. The common characteristic of these roles is that the information broker has some kind of understanding of what his or her customers want, and is willing to adapt to these needs. Information brokers collect information from various sources, evaluate its relative importance and then choose whether to include the information as it is, disregard it, summarize it, or perhaps rewrite or illustrate it differently than in the original source.
