People have their behavioral patterns, through which they determine how to seek and use information. People also exhibit established mobility pattern in their everyday lives. Meanwhile, the modern technologies such as smartphones, wearable devices, and eye trackers have allowed researchers to collect personal, contextual, and cognitive information of users, and create behavioral models from different perspectives.
Considering the analogy between information exploration and geographical exploration, we are aiming to identify the interconnections between these behaviors and predict individuals’ search behavior using personal and contextual signals.
