V8 Storming: How Far Should Two Ideas Be?


All innovative ideas are said to be pairings of existing ideas. In collaborative ideation, various methods are used to suggest words for stimulating ideation based on the theory that suggesting strongly related words to the ideation topic will activate and enhance the ideation. However, the relationship between the words suggested by the system and the words that users associate remains unclear. Solving this issue will help selecting words suggestion in computer-supported ideation systems, in which the information flow is fluid and, therefore, users have strictly limited time for interaction. To address this issue, we studied the relationship between pairs of words suggested by computer and the quantity of associated ideas by users. We also conducted a user study on practical applications.
