Title: EventWeb: The next disruptive evolutionary stage in WWW
Prof. Ramesh Jain, University of California, Irvine
Date & Time: August 18, 2008 15:30
Venue: SIC301, 'C' Block, 03rd floor, Kanwal Rekhi Building
The Web has changed the way we live, work, and socialize. The nodes in the current Web are documents and hence the current WWW is a Document Web. Advances in technology and requirements of emerging applications require formation of a parallel and closely connected Web of events, the EventWeb, in which each node is an event. EventWeb is essential for extending the reach of current WWW from only Cyberspace to the real physical world. Emerging applications of information systems increasingly contain vast amount of multimedia and sensory data and require more holistic pictures of evolving situations. In this presentation we explore growth of EventWeb as a natural next step in the evolution of the Web with rich multimodal sensory information. We will discuss the research challenges and exciting opportunities in this area.
