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: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
