Cisco go Social Semantic

February 22, 2011 Comments off

An announcement today[1/2]* of a cash injection to DERI from Cisco in respect of developing Cisco Quad[3] with a Semantic angle (SIOC no doubt) and Data Integration/Recommendation/Social-Network-Analysis with the proposed ADVANSSE project.[4,5]

 

Quad boasts standards like JSR-168, JSR-286, OpenSocial integration, XMPP, CMIS[6], but seems proprietary[7], and perhaps stuck with MS Exchange. Could this be a move to open it up for variegated enterprise, ECM and Web 3.0 [8]?

Google Fund Social Network Semantic Research at DERI

December 16, 2010 Comments off

An announcement today [1] that Google will fund a team led by Dr Alexandre Passant [2] on mobile social network applications. I wonder how much it will be like my own SkyTwenty platform [3] – far from being a social networking or blogging system but a mobile location service, with anonymity, access control and data shrouding. The DERI work is apparently going to build on some Google tech – “PubSubHubbub”[4] – and DERIs own hub based mobile blogging service – SMOB[5] – v2 of which was released in Jan 2010, integrates with Sindice. Distributed storage, Git like ? What about anonymity, provenance, trust, security, and scalabilty ?
