[German title: Webcast des Multimedia Knowledge Management Workshop 2007 (Translate text to: Deutsch)]
Multimedia Knowledge Management: Industry meets academia
This event took place on 8th January 2007 at 10:20am (10:20 GMT)
Berrill Lecture Theatre, The Open University, Walton Hall Campus, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom
The purpose of this workshop is to look at multimedia knowledge management from the perspectives of industry and academia in a rapidly changing digital world: communities create huge resources (wikiversity and -pedia, Flickr photo sharing); video is available in virtually unlimited quantity (youtube); broadcasters brace themselves for video-on-demand rather than linear channels; personalisation is on the rise not only at online-shop portals and iTune playlists but also in specific drugs for your genes; folksonomies replace taxonomies; thresholds of making web-services a business vanish as storage space and cpu-time become scalable commodities (the amazon cloud, web 2.0); people discover the long tail, where all is made available and the difficulty is “just” to find it. All these have an impact on the industries that are involved in any kind of multimedia knowledge management and the corresponding academic counterparts alike.
This workshop is designed to bring together people from industry and academia to share knowledge, explore possible interactions, understand different perspectives, and take first steps towards developing future collaborations.
