EXPWAY launches enhanced FastEPG™ v1.5 for IP networks

EXPWAY of France has launched FastEPG™ v1.5, an enhanced multi-media Electronic Program Guide (EPG). It is an application that can be used with digital video recorders, set-top boxes, and the latest TV sets. Viewers can use EPG to find, book, view and review content; it will also be an essential differentiator element for operators, helping them to strengthen their brand. EXPWAY will be showcasing its technology at the IBC trade show in Amsterdam in early September 2005.

As the main

Universal software, universal appeal

The vision of global applications is a step closer with the development of tools to create software that can work on any device.

The DEGAS project initially defined the key elements of a software program that are common to all devices, like security, and then separated those device-specific functions.

“Essentially, we wanted to address the problem caused by heterogeneous networks, because currently content and software cannot be used on any device or operating system,”

Computer program learns language rules and composes sentences, all without outside help

Cornell University and Tel Aviv University researchers have developed a method for enabling a computer program to scan text in any of a number of languages, including English and Chinese, and autonomously and without previous information infer the underlying rules of grammar. The rules can then be used to generate new and meaningful sentences. The method also works for such data as sheet music or protein sequences.

The development — which has a patent pending — has implications for

Supersizing the supercomputers: What’s next?

Supercomputers excel at highly calculation-intensive tasks, such as molecular modeling and large-scale simulations, and have enabled significant scientific breakthroughs.

Yet supercomputers themselves are subject to technological advancements and redesigns that allow them to keep pace with the science they support.

The current vision of future supercomputers calls for them to be very heterogeneous–for example, rather than a central processing unit (CPU) with memory, disk

EXPWAY launches turnkey FastESG™solution for mobile TV

EXPWAY of France has designed and launched FastESG™, a unique end-to end Electronic Service Guide solution over mobile and broadcast networks (GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, DVB-H), from server to terminal. FastESG™ is an XML-based software solution, built on rich metadata language such as DVB-CBMS, which guarantees an enhanced end-user experience (particularly in the field of TV viewing and multimedia entertainment). The company will be showcasing its technology at the IFA trade show in Berlin from 2 t

Developing the case for digital legal security

Bringing technology to the judiciary, European researchers are developing pilot applications that could speed up, clarify and provide secure access to legal procedures and a start-up company to promote the results.

With partners such as SAP, Thales and Unisys, the eJustice project aims to modernise the representation of legal procedures within countries, and between authorities of EU states.

Several pilot applications are being developed and evaluated.
