Ambient Ocean is a next-generation web search engine that enables mobile clients to discover relevant web resources based on their unique and evolving context. Unlike conventional web search engines, which typically only support textual queries, Ocean supports queries based on arbitrary contextual data, such as location, biometric details, telemetry data, situational cues, sensor information, and many others. Ocean uses a combination of personalization techniques, passive crowd-sourcing and context-enhanced query expansion to continually optimize search results over time. The project includes a context-aware web crawler and a custom application development environment, called OceanStudio, which enables developers to create, test and debug context-aware web mashups using a visual scenario designer, simulation tools, and an embedded mobile device emulator framework.
