Why participate in fp7

Why participate in FP7?

  • no matter where you are, the majority of the smart people work elsewhere;

  • reuse resources developed elsewhere, make yourself known;

  • considerable amounts of funding available

Intelligent content semantics

Intelligent Content &Semantics

Make digital resources that embody creativity and semantics (”intelligence”) easier and more cost effective to produce, organize, search, personalise, distribute and use across the value chain.

media professionals, enterprise designers, talented amateurs:

  • enhanced productivity; more communicative & participative forms of content; ease of use

    organisations & communities:

  • automated collection & distribution of digital content and machine-tractable knowledge; sharing in collaborative environments


Topical foci

Topical foci

  • 3 axes:

    • boost creativity (better)

    • master content (easier, richer)

    • dig out « hidden » information (humans & machines)

  • 3 forms of content:

    • (social) media content

    • enterprise information

    • scientific data

      multimedia:

    • text, image, video, audio …


Overall approach

Overall approach

  • research for a purpose, problem & objective driven

  • centred around users, data & flows

    • a compelling “use case” is as important as the underlying research

  • meaningful demonstrator(s), field validation & assessment

  • active promotion & dissemination of results beyond scientific circles


Progress 1 st fp7 call

Progress, 1st FP7 call

  • broad effort

    • 3 WP Objectives centred around digital content:

      • Digital Libraries

      • Intelligent Content

      • Networked Media

    • approx 190 Meuro in total

    • c. 340 proposals received

  • selection completed

  • negotiation underway


Ic s stats

IC&S stats

  • inputs:

    • 148 proposals

    • 1210 participants from 50 countries

    • 473 Meuro requested, 51 Meuro available

  • outputs:

    • 15 top-ranked (retained) proposals

    • 128 participants

    • 55% academia & research centres

    • 45% business & public sector


Response

Response

  • video is very popular and so is 3D

  • web 2.0 approaches are well represented

    • alone or in combination with KE / semantic web

    • text alone or as an aid for multimedia annotation

    • speech is back, but proposals often lack sophistication

  • information extraction & text/multimedia mining addressed by several proposals

  • (semantic) search embedded within larger systems

  • reasoning & machine learning the subjectof ambitous endeavours

  • multilingual aspects are weak


Wp coverage

WP coverage

  • popular themes:

    • content creation & processing,both media (TV, film, games, advertising …) & other appls (eg surveillance)

    • several instances of personalisation & summarisation

    • knowledge management & decision support, range of business & public-interest (eg environment) domains

    • semantic foundations, including semantic web & data integration

  • gaps:

    • creative authoring (e.g. games, virtual worlds, industrial design) as well as immersive rendering & multimodal consumption

    • democratisation of editing/remixing/tagging/sharing tools

      • simple and yet powerful

      • low cost but high functionality


Top proposals

Top proposals

  • good coverage of the WP

    • research, development & field validation

  • balanced partnerships

    • consortia smaller than in FP6

    • well known players as well as newcomers

    • teams from 7 of the 12 « new » member states

  • multiple use cases

    • both private & public sectors

  • good balance between instruments

    • 4 big (IP, 26 M), 11 small (STR, 25 M)
