Stewart Nickolas, IBM

Wednesday, September 10, 8:30-10:00 @ Main Auditorium (A101)



In this session we'll discuss our experiences and lessons learned over the past couple years from developing and validating a technology called QEDWiki which is an application wiki (see video). We will also discuss our vision of the web beyond the technologies, uses and concepts attributed to Web 2.0. We'll discuss the importance of the ecosystem at the heart of the mashup/application wiki ecosystem,; specifically, opensource, commercial and community efforts. Looking forward, we'll explore ways to derive new value from web consumables such as text, video and audio using semantic analysis and the inspection and repurposing of huge amounts of data within "massive" mashups.
