Research Area(s):

Project Description:
With the increase of digitalization and empowering of users, patients/citizens extensively use Internet for searching health information but they are often overwhelmed by the amount, complexity and questionable quality that a generic search engine often provides. The goal of this project is to develop a tailored meta search engine, FACILE, that allows a user to specify his/her information requirements in a simple way. It, then, retrieves tailored Web information by exploiting the Web structured data (schema.org) and provides the “right” amount of Web content that is trustworthy and simple to understand.
