1 Simon Buckingham Shum (Open) David De Roure (Soton) Marc Eisenstadt (Open) Nigel Shadbolt (Soton) Austin Tate (Edin) AKT Review, Sept AKT I ntegrated F easibility D emonstrator

2 CoAKTinG partners (AKT subset)

3 Overview Component approaches Edinburgh / Open U. / Southampton Integration >> advances that would never have happened without this project << Conceptual Technical Key contributions and future work

4 Beyond video conferencing… collective sensemaking / discussion capture following through decisions/ coordinating activities synthesising artifacts recovering information from meetings awareness of agent status / sense of presence virtual meetings …integrating multiple modes of collaboration

5 Presence semantics … as an aggregated view of an (object)s dynamically changing attributes ( Chakraborty, 2001) Availability (Im logged on for a videoconference) Preference (Only my boss can interrupt me now) Capability (My device can accept video calls) Location (Im in Munich… urgent calls only) awareness of agent status / sense of presence

6 Presence visualization Beyond buddy lists Geographic and conceptual maps Other instant messaging features make it the most downloaded Jabber client

7 Compendium I see what youre saying Connecting ideas: visually, by sets, metadata, and hypertextually Real time visual mapping of issues, ideas, arguments and decisions in meetings Multimedia webs of resources and discussions Incremental formalization with shared ownership Free-form and template driven discussions collective sensemaking / discussion capture

8 Scenario Building: Mapping arguments and decision rationale

9 Compendium: structured template

10 Compendium: meeting template

11 I-X Process Panels I-X environment: handling issues, performing activities, placing constraints, adding annotations Based on a synthesis-task ontology Role in CoAKTinG: networked To Do lists for issue handling and activity tracking following through decisions/ coordinating activities synthesising artifacts

12 I-X meeting action items Process Panel

13 HyStream Continuous metadata Metadata annotation of continuous media e.g. Hystream project application of open hypermedia to streamed, temporal media continuous link flows: link generation, storage, synchronised transmission, delivery and resolution

14 Interim Results

15 Integration work Conceptual Extending the AKT Reference Ontology Mapping and cross-fertilisation between two issue-management ontologies Technical Off-the-shelf Jabber-based integration 3 tools freely available for download Intelligent team rosta management Integration between Compendium, I-X, BuddySpace, Meeting replay tool Key Contributions Support variable levels of formality in communication Real time semantic annotation of discussions Events ontology for e-Science collaboration Context-driven collaboration tools

16 Conceptual integration: Extending the Reference Ontology Extensions to support: generation of multimedia presentations (e.g. millisecond representations of time) meetings distributed across several (physical and virtual) locations exhibition of information objects as events (e.g. slides; videos; documents) meeting-specific (compound) information bearing objects (versions of resources used in meetings) annotation events (e.g. verbal comments, creation of Compendium nodes)

17 Conceptual integration: Issue-based ontologies IBIS: Issue-Based Information System (optimised for synchronous discussion and mapping in Compendium) Issues, Positions, Arguments, Decisions, Reference Nodes (optimised for asynchronous coordination of activities in I-X Process Panels) Issues, Nodes, Constraints, Annotations Where appropriate, one brings in a Compendium template (e.g. I-X Plans) to support structured work IBIS-inspired extensions to Deontic questions - What should we do? Instrumental questions - How should we do it? Criterial questions - What are the criteria? Meaning or conceptual questions - What does X mean? Factual questions - What is X? or Is X true? Background questions - What is the background to this project? Stakeholder questions - Who are the stakeholders of this project?

18 Technical integration: Jabber interoperability BuddySpace Compendium I-X Process panels Meeting Replay BuddySpace Compendium I-X Process panels Jabber Server

19 Technical integration: Compendium I-X Plan

20 virtual meetings Semantic replay/browsing of meetings… Video stream … Speech event stream … Jabber event stream … Slide event stream … Compendium event stream … How to integrate into a coherent meeting replay user interface? recovering information from meetings Application event stream …

21 mapping real time discussions/ group sensemaking following through decisions/ coordinating activities synthesising artifacts recovering information from meetings awareness of colleagues availability/ sense of presence virtual meetings Testbed: Scientific project management (AKT PI NetMeeting, March 2003) recovering information from meetings NetMeeting BuddySpace Compendium I-X Process panels

22 Meeting replay by time, speaker, contribution to discussion, and decision

23 Future work The CSCW graveyard… …users will consider any required adaptation a cost …services need to justify themselves Semantics Co-existence and merging of issue ontologies Dynamic context for agents, processes and products Meeting replay/navigation As the corpus grows, need for dynamic generation of views across meetings and themes user interface and engineering challenges – poss. Equator collaboration Towards hybrid semantic annotation human sensemaking + analysis/IE on the RDF repository Domain testbeds Scientific project management (AKT) Work with Comb-e-Chem e-Science project Dynamic e-Response emergency relief scenario
