Business models for content industry

Pascal Jacques, Head of the Interactive Electronic Publishing sector of DG Information Society has forwarded an announcement concerning a special session at the IST 2002 conference entitled: "Next Generation of Business Models for the content industry". Billed as a networking session, the draft agenda will be based on the market monitoring of e-content industry carried-out by the ACTeN Project, with the issue of new business models being discussed on the basis of case study presentations from various European Markets. As explained in the rationale for the workshop on the IST2002 Conference web site:

"The downturn in the telecom and internet markets and the failure to develop strong pay for content strategies has put the producers and creative community into a tough economic situation. Rapid transformations of markets based on new platforms, software, devices and forms of usage put additional pressure on practitioners to invest and keep up-to-date and come up with the right business strategies. Much of the technological developments can be planned, but the business side and the actual economically successful implementation represent presently the critical challenges. The rationale of the workshop is to provide IST participants with well-structured views from experts".

Peter Bruck of ICCM New Media is acting as the coordinator of the event. Details of how to take part are published on the IST 2002 Conference web site (see link below), though the exact date and location have yet to be published.

The IST 2002: "Partnerships for the Future" Conference aims to to help build the European Research Area for the Information Society within the EU’s 6th Framework Programme for Research and Development (FP6), which is to be launched at the end of 2002. Held at the Bella Center, Copenhagen on 4-6 November, IST 2002 will broaden its scope to everyone with a strategic interest in Information Society research, whether at European, national or regional level - or even entirely within the private sector.

Ontology-based information exchange

OntoWeb: Ontology-based information exchange for knowledge management and electronic commerce is a European Commission funded project being run under the IST (Information Society Technologies) part of the 5th Framework Programme. The goal of the OntoWeb Network is to bring together researchers and industrial users/developers promoting interdisciplinary work and strengthening the European influence on Semantic Web standardisation efforts such as those based on RDF and XML. Specifically, the network's goals are to:

• stimulate and support the transfer of research on the Semantic Web from academia to industry;
• stimulate the translation from industrial needs to technical and scientific problems;
• represent and co-ordinate ontology-related research being carried out in different research areas, such as: web markup languages, knowledge acquisition, knowledge engineering, knowledge representation, information systems and database integration, information retrieval, language engineering, digital libraries, software Agents, and machine learning;
• disseminate information, research and application results about ontologies and related fields;
• represent the European ontology community world wide and co-operating with related initiatives like DAML in the US;
• enhance the training in ontology-related technologies at the European level;
• distribute results and stimulate applications in all areas, with special emphasis on web-based applications, electronic commerce, and information integration;
• cooperate with content standardisation committees to promote the development of ontology-based standards and the harmonisation/interoperability across different standards (with special emphasis on standards being developed for electronic commerce in the B2B area);
• cooperate with language standardisation committees as the W3C to promote the development of standard languages for meta data (future versions of RDF and RDFS).

The project's web site provides details of the proposed work programme including the establishment of a number of Special Interest groups (SIGs) to which interested parties can join, these include:

SIG1 on Content Standards

Knowledge Media Institute

Knowledge Media encompasses a broad programme of research into new learner-centred technologies, including Internet-enhanced collaboration media, multimedia environments for disabled learners, intelligent agents, organisational memories, digital documents, scientific visualisation and simulation tools, informal and formal representations of knowledge - in short, innovative approaches to sharing, accessing, and understanding knowledge. The UKs Knowledge Media Institute (KMi) is a purpose-built showcase lab housing 60 researchers, technologists and designers. KMi creates and studies near-term future technologies for the ultimate benefit of Open University students, staff, industrial sponsors, and a mixture of local and global learning communities. KMi's research addresses fundamental questions at the core of learning and knowledge:

"What do people know? How do they know it? How can learners best create their own multimedia content to provide a motivating and memorable experience? How can they share that experience with fellow learners, regardless of physical location or disability? How can technology facilitate knowledge creation and sharing in an organization? How best to model problem solving knowledge to facilitate its reuse in different contexts? How can we identify hitherto unrecognised nuggets hidden within vast institutional data banks?"

The questions posed above are indicative of the themes that motivate the research programmes currently underway in KMi. The KMi is keen for researchers to join them and accept comments on their research and the web site, which provides a news and an information service on the subject.

The SCULPTEUR R&D Project

SCULPTEUR (Semantic and content-based multimedia exploitation for European benefit) is a three-year European project co-funded by the European Commission under the the 5th Framework of the Information Society Technologies (IST) programme that started in May 2002. SCULPTEUR plans to "develop both the technology and the expertise to help create, manage and present cultural archives of 3D models and associated multimedia objects, exploiting the semantic web technology, and make available cultural heritage to European people and the world".

Digital cash report

The OECD held a "Forum for the Future" conference in July 2001 which looked at the "Future of Money" ("L'avenir de l'argent"). They have now published a booklet containing six papers presented at the conference which explore the interrelationships between new forms of money (digital cash) and the potential economic and social changes that it's introduction could bring.

Conclusions vary greatly between the authors - though there is a general tenet throughout the various papers that the introduction of digital money will bring with it some fundamental challenges to society. The report is available as a free download in both French and English from the OECD's web site (search for: "The Future of Money").

Secure on-line shopping report

"Building security and consumer trust in Internet payments - the potential of 'soft' measures" is the title of a report published by the Electronic Payment Systems Observatory (IPTS/ePSO). Described as a background paper, it discusses the importance of human factors ("soft" or non-technology based measures) for increasing security and consumer trust in Internet payments and preventing fraud.

Coverage includes: consumer awareness and education; limitation of consumer liabilities in the case of fraud and the provision of redress mechanisms; the use of merchant trust marks. The paper can be downloaded free of charge via the link below.

The ePSO project is part of the European efforts to leverage payment systems innovation in the move towards promoting e-commerce in Europe. Its objectives are:

to monitor and analyze the strategic views of market players and experts
• to strengthen communication across groups of actors, sectors, channels and countries, with a view to assist standardization and regulatory bodies to keep pace with the evolution of technology.

The ePSO project is co-financed by the European Commission DG Enterprise ISIS Programme and the IPTS. It is supported by the European Parliament and European Commission Services involved in payments.

FP6 - support of foresight research

The European Commission's Research DG has issued a guide which considers the potential opportunities offered by the 6th Framework Programme for supporting cooperation in the field of identifying promising trends in science and technology in Europe (so-called, "foresight activities").

In addition the guide attempts to outline the research priorities relevant to foresight activities and the funding instruments that may be used. The authors of the report believe that development of a strong European knowledge society must involve organisations active in identifying future technology problems and potential solutions.

SMS spam receives attention

Back in October (El.pub Topic News, 25th October 2001) we reported on the potential for growth in the practice of "text-spamming" to mobile handsets via SMS-based services. Since that time, Connection Software, the company mentioned in the article, and active in the area of SMS-based marketing, reports that preventing abuse of SMS remains a key priority within the industry.

Anna Wood of Connection Software has written to us pointing out that they enforce an "acceptable use policy" which states that SMS, "should only be sent to recipients who have previously given consent to receiving such messages." If the policy is breached, Connection assure us that they would withdraw their service. In addition, Anna confirms that "The Wireless Marketing Association (WMA) has been formed to monitor how companies are using SMS and to prevent SMS Spam".
