Intel Tech Talks :: 13Nov07
Intel® Mash Maker is an extension to your existing web browser that allows you to easily augment the page that you are currently browsing with information from other websites. As you browse the web, the Mash Maker toolbar suggests Mashups that it can apply to the current page in order to make it more useful for you. For example: plot all items on a map, or display the leg room for all flights.
Intel® Mash Maker learns from the wisdom of the community. Any user can teach Mash Maker new mashups, using a simple copy and paste interface, and once one user has taught Mash Maker a mashup, this mashup will be automatically suggested to other users. Intel® Mash Maker also relies on the community to teach it about the structure and semantics of web pages, using a built in structure editor.
Robert Ennals is a researcher at the Intel Research lab in Berkeley, and is project lead for Intel Mash Maker. Go to the Intel Mashmaker website to find more and download the tool. You can find out more of what Robert is up to at his Blog.
