Project Description and Purpose
The aim of the project was to create an innovative application for tourist in mobility able, automatically and in real time, to adapt an audio commentary based on his or her behavior in the space and in the time.
For this purpose, we developed a methodology for the composition of texts and the codification of single tracks. This codification allows a dynamic assembly of paragraphs in order to create a meaningful text.
Appropriate software modules have therefore been developed for the construction of text proposed to the tourist, based on the current position, the previous listening history and its expressed preferences.
The correlation between the position of user and text to be listened to, consistent with the places and monuments to be described, has led to the need to associate each piece with a geographical area of competence, expressed in georeferenced terms.
With the collaboration of experts in communication science and professionals from the world of culture, the project was completed with the digital editing, according to the methodology of original texts for a pilot area.
