Abstract: We present a smart audio guide that adapts itself to the environment the user is navigating into. The system builds automatically a point of interest database exploiting Wikipedia and Google APIs as source. We rely on a computer vision system, to overcome the likely sensor limitations, and determine with high accuracy if the user is facing a certain landmark or if he is not facing any. Thanks to this the guide presents audio description at the most appropriate moment without any user intervention, using text-to-speech augmenting the experience.
Popularity: This indicator reflects the "current" impact/attention (the "hype") of an article in the research community at large, based on the
underlying citation network.
Influence: This indicator reflects the overall/total impact of an article in the research community at large, based on the
underlying citation network (diachronically).
Citation Count: This is an alternative to the "Influence" indicator, which also reflects the overall/total impact of an article in
the research community at large, based on the underlying citation network (diachronically).
Impulse: This indicator reflects the initial momentum of an article directly after its publication, based on the underlying citation
