1 EU research in Knowledge based systems: Progress & prospects Roberto Cencioni & Stefano Bertolo DG Information Society and Media Unit INFSO.E2 ISWC’05, Galway

2 Knowledge technologies in FP6: basic facts by Q projects, 260 M€ funding 443 participants, 638 participations: –52% public, education, … participants –48% private, commercial, … participants 32 countries; 58% from top 5 countries (DE, UK, FR, IT, ES)

3

4 Scope RTD&D – long term research (formal, theoretical) – technology / component research & development – applied, system-level research – demonstration Emphasis on –generic, enabling technologies –flexible, cross-sectoral application platforms

5 3 research lines 1.Cross-media Content (call 2): new forms of digital content: creativity, interactivity, user experience & control, cross-platform access & delivery… 2.Content & Knowledge (call 4): intelligent content objects: metadata generation / extraction, semantic indexing & retrieval, aggregation, personalisation, workflow... 3.Knowledge (calls 1 & 4): … next foil

6 Semantic Web’s and beyond 3.Knowledge: –intersection of Web, MM and KR&R –networked information & communities –web/multimedia " documents " : text + image, video, audio, shapes … –automation of knowledge lifecycle –from static to dynamic information, interaction, work flows … –data semantics as well as evolving processes & tasks Support for Semantic Web projects since 2002!

7 2 research foci Knowledge acquisition & modelling, capturing knowledge from raw information and multimedia content –multimedia content analysis, semantic annotation & categorisation –ontology evolution, knowledge extraction –content harvesting, web/multimedia mining –searching on distributed resources Knowledge sharing and use, exploiting semantically enriched information to provide actionable meaning –collaboration, knowledge sharing –user & context modelling, personalisation –semantic web services & business processes –interworking & legacy systems …

8 Outcome of Call submissions received 25 proposals retained, nearly 250 organisations 124 M€ total funding largest EU call ever in the information access / management domain –projects due to start Q1 2006

20 Towards FP7 New framework expected to start end 2006 Main proposals (FP, SPs, RfP) forwarded to Council & Parliament Significant budget increase … depending on EU financial perspectives after 2006 Traditional as well as new SPs (eg Space) Traditional collaborative research (Cooperation SP) as well as grants for individual teams (Ideas SP)

21 IST rebranded - now simply ICT, ~2 M€ / year still the largest thematic component within FP centred around 4 components: –Core Technologies (incl. Knowledge) –Integration Environments (eg personal, home) –Application Poles (incl. Content) –Future and Emerging Technologies Knowledge placed next to (human & artificial) Cognition Content (commercial, corporate) next to educational & cultural content by and large, the proposed structure does not follow current DG-INFSO organisational lines … See ICT research within FP7

22 Timeplan timeframe: –phase 1 (directions & priorities)March 2006 –phase 2 (strong justification!) March-May –phase 3 (workprogramme) June-July –phase 4 (focus of initial calls)July-Sept –phase 5 (spreading the word…)Oct-Dec elicit input from ALL relevant circles: –research topics continuity vs. new directions emerging challenges vs. gaps & failures in FP6 long term research vs. development & validation relationships vis-a-vis adjacent topical areas –instruments & shared infrastructures –stakeholders: S&T communities & disciplines –ICT industry, user industries

23 We need your input, asap! work ahead: –assess FP6 portfolio, identify gaps & duplications –screen vendors & integrators, market drivers & products –gather socio-economic justification, facts & figures –sounding board (virtual / physical meetings) –expert roundtables (Bxl / Lux / at major conferences) –open public consultation by web based for each candidate research topic: –why public intervention –why at EU level, rationale & added value –expected impact (scientific, technological, economic) –time-to-exploitation & (eventual) application space

24 Some issues Knowledge & Content the largest topical area in FP6, budget likely to remain constant in FP7, so –ongoing convergence of Knowledge & Content tracks –which research lines can be discontinued to make room for new research topics –how to share more widely and effectively precompetitive research results –how to enhance impact & promote up-take: more focused approach to application tasks & domains? –how to forster more ambitious endeavours –how to stimulate synergy with national & industrial initiatives –how to broaden the programme base more research centres, more companies, more high-tech users –how to consolidate foundations & middleware, how to progress towards flexible & scaleable reference architectures …
