ACM CSCW 2000 - MusicFX

MUSICFX is a group preference arbitration system that allows the members of a fitness center to influence, but not directly control,one of these shared factors: the selection of music in the fitness center. The system includes a databse of member preferences, a badge reader to track who is in the fitness center, and a group preference arbitration algorithm that sorts the 91 genres of music (avaliable via satellite) according to the preferences of the current members. This video illustrates the impact of MUSICFX in a series of vignettes and describes how the system allocates influence among the inhabitants of the fitness center environment.
