Nowadays we are bombarded with information throughout the day. We have the need to be connected and up-to-date at all times while feeling overwhelmed with the amount of information. Prioritising and filtering the information while making sure that we “don’t miss out” has become increasingly difficult. To stay connected we shuffle between devices. However, once we are at work some of these devices become redundant or distracting.
Focus is a service concept that allows prioritising the information from multiple feeds while enhancing focus time during work hours. Using an algorithm the service would determine which information is relevant throughout different times of the day. It is connected to the user’s agenda and contacts and it gathers input through both usage as well as explicit user feedback in order to improve the selection of information.
