Me and this blog
Hello! My name is Daniel Kornev, I’m PhD student, Context-aware Computing Researcher @ Higher School of Economics in Moscow, Russia, and I've been also working as Developer Evangelist, later as Program Manager and Site Manager Lead at Microsoft Russia. Currently I work as HCI Researcher Intern within Microsoft Research's VIBE organization in Redmond, WA. I’m pretty enthusiastic about such hot topic like Context-aware Computing and I feel it as quite promising technology research direction for the next 20-100 years. My experience counts for about three years since May 2007. I wrote a Think Week paper @ Microsoft on Context-aware Computing back in August 2007 and work on this research area since that time.
My primary research interests are within application of context-aware computing principles for improvement of human-computer interaction; information visualization; adaptive systems; object-relational storage.
Note: This is my old MSDN blog and I'm looking forward to continue blogging in my Wordpress blog here: http://contextresearcher.wordpress.com/
In that blog I will cover different aspects of catching user’s context, dealing with it and making user’s work more productive. Productive? Yeah, because I believe that with a set of information that we get from different sources today, there is a need to categorize it and manage the reception of it by our – users – own rules.
I’ve done personally and managed several research projects within context-aware computing and CHI areas, including the Augmented Reality-based campus navigation tool for Moscow State University with my colleagues Alexander Popov and Vladimir Borisov from MSTLab that is located in CS Dept., MSU, Moscow, Russia. Other projects – zoomable canvas-based user interface for non-desktop metaphor of managing users task & activities; context-aware engine with plugin model to include more context sources – used Base4.Net as context DB; few more prototypes of context-aware platform to fulfill the need in context-aware applications.
