ExpeShare partners develop technology for capturing and sharing experiences

30.10.2007
European research partners in Finland, France, Spain and Italy have started a project, ExpeShare, that develops concepts and technologies for capturing and sharing experiences securely, legally and in a simple way.

You are having the time of your life: skiing, visiting a picturesque village or attending an interesting conference or concert. It's so great that you would like your friends to know how it feels. Not to mention you'd like to relive it later. How to convey this experience to others? Why is it so difficult to capture the moment and pass it on for others to enjoy?

The challenge of the ExpeShare project (2007 - 2009) is to make sharing of the experience easy and secure, right where and when it happens. Therefore novel concepts and networking technologies will be created in the project to facilitate sharing of information between mobile devices such as mobile phones, MP3s, DVD players, memory sticks and digital cameras. The project goes beyond web-based sharing of digital multimedia content such as pictures, videos, music and games. It will achieve its goals by innovative mobile peer-to-peer networking solutions, multimedia content and community management facilities as well as interaction solutions that utilise a variety of devices.

Experience is a complex phenomenon that goes beyond the picture or video clip that can easily be captured. The project will attempt to define this concept of experience and develop intuitive tools for capturing, managing, sharing and replaying experiences. Selecting the peer(s) or community with whom to share is another issue requiring innovative interactive solutions.

Peer-to-peer networks suffer from an image of illegality. They are, however, efficient means for distributing information. The ExpeShape project will take the peer-to-peer networking paradigm to the mobile world, while also suggesting ways to secure the legality of the exchanged content. Special attention will be given to the management of content rights and understanding the associated value chains.

The project will set up real-world pilots to evaluate the developed concepts. The pilot environments may be e.g. tourist areas, sports centres, public spaces and events or professional meetings.

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
