CRC Seminar

Many of the challenges of ubiquitous computing (including location and context awareness) and those of the semantic web align along some very interesting axes. This talk will discuss how emerging semantic technologies such as OWL, Pellet, and increased volumes of metadata can help provide solutions to the LOCA (location and context awareness) problem in pervasive computing. Methods of synthesizing a solution between these two domains will be discussed. Some possible use cases involving a Semantically Powered Adaptive Computing Environment (SPACE) will be described as well.

Bill McDaniel is a Sr. Scientist at Adobe Systems and spends most of his time researching the implications of having large amounts of metadata available in both local and enterprise level environments. Portions of this talk are based on his recent efforts defining a vision of future publishing for Adobe. He has co-authored several books on technology and the future, including Critical Mass: A Primer for Living with the Future.
