Presentation Transcript

  1. Emerging Opportunities in Software Technology R&D:A Technology Forecast Walt Scacchi Institute for Software Research University of California, Irvine Irvine, CA 92697-3455 wscacchi@ics.uci.edu

  2. Some Opportunities Areas • Open Source Software • Networked Computer Games • Ubiquitous Wireless Networking

  3. Open Source Software • Changing world of software products, processes, and software development projects

  4. OSS Business Revenue Streams • Subscription support services • Providcs ongoing maintenance services 24/7 • Email or phone help desk • Provides indemnification • Access to Operations Network • Consulting and Migration services • On-site custom development and support • Training Services • Web-based how-to’s, tutorials (also retail books) • On-site customer training (Direct or via Certified Partners) • All services sold on a direct basis (e.g., in North America and Europe), and via Certified Partners (globally)

  5. FOSS Social Networking across projects

  6. Google Summer of Code 2006

  7. Networked Computer Games • Rapid rise in research interest in game culture and technology • Precipitating the Web 3.0

  8. UCI Game Lab Faculty • Studio Art: Robert Nideffer (Director), Antoinette LaFarge • Computer Science: Paul Dourish, Magda El Zarki, Dan Frost, Bonnie Nardi, Andre van der Hoek • Engineering: Tara Hutchinson, Falko Kuester, Joerg Meyer • Arts, Computation, Engineering: Beatriz de Costa, Simon Penny, Bill Tomlinson • Institute Software Research: Celia Pearce, Walt Scacchi (Research Director), • Others: Tom Boellstorf (Anthropology), Christopher Dobrian (Music), Peter Krappe (Humanities/Film Studies), Charlie Zender (Earth Systems Science)

  9. DOOM Wars, May 2006

  10. Game Culture and Technology • Games as immersive, experiential literary form -- game play as emergent narrative • Gaming as rapidly growing global industry • “Modding” and making games as practice-based learning and career development • Games as new media and cultural form • Game culture as social movement

  11. Games as a new medium

  12. New Game related R&D efforts • alternative game cultures and venues • “hot rod” game machines, LAN parties, and GameCon’s • visual and performing arts • Games as cultural media (www.selectparks.net) • humanities and social sciences • Games as graphic narratives for storytelling; machinima — game-based cinema • science learning and technology education • Games for informal education in science • Learning science/engineering domains and practices through immersive (role-playing) games

  13. Csports.net Game Players, May 2006

  14. Hot Rod PCs

  15. Ubiquitous Wireless Networking • Enabling open source software development and networked computer games via wireless networking

  16. Stadium Area Games
