Broadway*Tools is a toolbox used to facilitate the creation of adaptive recommendation systems for information retrieval on the Web or in a Internet/intranet information system. This toolbox offers different servers, including a server that calculates recommendations based on the observation of the user sessions and on the re-use of user groups' former sessions. A recommender system created with Broadway*tools observes navigations of various users and gather the evaluations and annotations of those users to draw up a list of relevant recommendations (Web documents, keywords, etc).
Different recommender systems have been developed:
for supporting Web browsing with Broadway-Web,
for supporting browsing inside a Web-based information system with educaid (France Telecom Lannion - Inria contract), e-behaviour (Color Action, use of the mouse and eye-tracking events),
for supporting query formulation with Be-CBKB (XRCE-Inria contract), etc.
Broadway*Tools concerned our two current contracts: EPIA (cf. section 7.1.1 and MobiVip (cf. section 7.1.2 ).
