Abstract

Within this work, we introduce a digital sticky note tool to be used by analysts for a brainstorming session within a cognitive and immersive system (CAIS). This tool was setup to mimic and enhance the traditionally pen-and-paper process. By utilizing a digital interface, we allow for more feature-rich note taking including pictures and hyperlinks in addition to just text, as well as an increased amount of captured metadata about each created note. To achieve parity with the non-digital process, our interface allows for both individual usage via personal devices (e.g. tablets, laptops) as well as for coming together as a group and collaborating via a multi-modal interface, supporting commands through a mixture of voice and gestures.
