Project: Avoiding Overload in Multiuser Online Applications

One way to strengthen the bond between popular applications and their online user communities is to integrate the applications with their communities, so users are able to observe and communicate with one other. The result of this integration is a Multiuser Online Application (MOA). The problem this project studies is that MOA users and systems will be overloaded with information generated by large communities and complex applications. The solution investigated is to introduce filtering to reduce the amount of information exchanged by users while still preserving the benefits of dwelling in a MOA environment.
