Bauer, Jared S., Jansen, Alex and Cirimele, Jesse (2011): MoodMusic: a method for cooperative, generative music playlist creation. In: Proceedings of the 2011 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2011. pp. 85-86.

Music is a major element of social gatherings. However, creating playlists that suit everyone's tastes and the mood of the group can require a large amount of manual effort. In this paper, we present MoodMusic, a method to dynamically generate contextually appropriate music playlists for groups of people. MoodMusic uses speaker pitch and intensity in the conversation to determine the current 'mood'. MoodMusic then queries the online music libraries of the speakers to choose songs appropriate for that mood. This allows groups to listen to music appropriate for their current mood without managing playlists. This work contributes a novel method for dynamically creating music playlists for groups based on their music preferences and current mood.

Bauer, Jared S., Blankenship, Liz A., Gingras, Leanna M. and Goetz, Mark A. (2009): WantKnot: connecting organizations to improve their waste management practices. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2009 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2009. pp. 2841-2846.

Commercial businesses represent a large portion of all waste generation; furthermore, their waste streams are large and consistent enough to provide a steady resource to other organizations that can use the waste as inputs for their own processes. However, businesses find it difficult to connect with other organizations, especially those in different industries. We conducted a user-centered design process in which we interviewed 17 local organizations, built an affinity diagram, and devised personas and scenarios. Using this information, we designed a social network, WantKnot, which allows businesses to find other local organizations interested in absorbing some of their waste streams. Based on a preliminary round of usability testing, we found that WantKnot connects businesses in valuable ways, and in doing so, reduces waste and transportation resources.
