Event details

Dr Sepi Chakaveh will be the speaker at the seminar which will present how the project addresses the research topics of web observatory, dynamic media objects, crowd-sourced open data and Internet services. At the end of a talk a number of demos will be shown in the context of SoFWIReD’s Dynamic Media Object.

The information age as we know it has its roots in several enabling
technologies – most of all the World Wide Web – for the provision
of truly global connectivity. The emergence of a Web of Big Data in
terms of the publication and analysis of Open Data provides new
insights about the impact of the Web in our society.
The second most important technology in this regard has been the
emergence of streaming processes based on new and innovative
compression methods such as MP3 so that audio and video content
becomes accessible to everyone on the Web. The SoFWIReD team is
developing comprehensive, interoperable platforms for data and
knowledge driven processing of Open Data and will investigate aspects
of collective intelligence. Insights generated in the project will
form the basis for supporting companies through consulting,
organisational development, and software solutions so that they can
master the collective intelligence transition.
