1 EU research in Content & Knowledge technologies: Progress & prospects Roberto Cencioni & Stefano Bertolo DG Information Society and Media Unit INFSO.E2 EWIMT’05, London

2 Basic facts by Q1 2006: 58 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 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

4 3 project lines 1.Cross-media Content (call 2): new media paradigms, new forms of digital content creativity, interactivity, user experience & control, cross-platform delivery & presentation / adaptation… 2.Content & Knowledge (call 4): “ intelligent” content access & management (meta data generation / extraction, semantic indexing & contextual retrieval…), aggregation & personalisation, automated workflows... 3.Knowledge (calls 1 & 4): intersection of Web, MM and KR&R (SemWeb+) networked information & communities; automation of knowledge lifecycle; web / multimedia “documents” ; from static to dynamic information, interaction & evolving processes

5 Content: 2 research tracks content is King: everywhere in the IST programme! our approach: –long term vision, beyond today’s commercial imperatives –more compelling content, more effective creation & flexible (re-)use more digital-born content, better content, at a lower cost –commercial content, as opposed to scientific, medical, educational… content two intertwined tracks: –creation provide better user experience & control by pulling together & integrating ICT advances –access & management content analysis & categorisation (text + image, video, audio, n-D objects) (semantic / contextual) search & retrieval personalisation & reuse aggregation & work flows …

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

17 Creativity tools: Salero Integrated Project, 48M lowering cost of content creation, creation and management of intelligent content objects, adaptation across different platforms, knowledge based control of appearance, sound, behaviour, artists and creative media professionals

18 Intelligent content mgmt: Acemedia Integrated Project, 48M semantic multimedia analysis, semantic indexing/search, mpeg-7 descriptors, automated content collection, device adaptation, personalization, scalable video coding, content/metadata/intelligence layers

19 Networking & distribution: Medianet Integrated Project, 24M multimedia communications, AV distribution, residential services, supply chain architecture, cooperation, digital rights management, home networking

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) multinational collaborative research (Cooperation SP) as well as grants for individual teams (Ideas SP)

21 IST rebranded - now simply ICT, ~2 B€ / year still the largest thematic component within FP centred around 4 components: –Core Technologies (incl. Knowledge) –Integration of Technologies (eg personal, home) –Applications Research (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-Sep –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 and media industry, user industries

23 We need your input, now! 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 by web basedweb based for each candidate research topic: –why public intervention –why at EU level, rationale & added value –expected impact (scientific, technological, economic) –time-to-maturity/exploitation & (eventual) application space

24 Some issues Content & Knowledge the largest topical area in FP6, budget likely to remain ~ constant in FP7, so –ongoing convergence of Knowledge & mutimedia Content tracks –new and emerging research challenges –which research lines can be discontinued to make room for new research topics –how to share more widely & effectively precompetitive research results –how to enhance impact & promote uptake: more focused approach to application domains or research tasks? –how to foster 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
