Victoria is a Star!Enrico Motta, Monday 30 October 2006 | Annotate
Last week a plenary meeting of the X-media consortium was held in Orbassano, near Turin, at Centro Ricerche Fiat (CRF). X-Media is a 13M Euros EC-sponsored Integrated Project, which focuses on developing methods and tools for effectively acquiring, integrating, and managing information extracted from different media. KMi plays a key role in the project, contributing to the formulation of the X-Media approach to knowledge sharing and also to other areas, such as Knowledge Fusion. At the Orbassano meeting, KMi’s Victoria Uren was awarded the “Star of the Meeting” Award for her impressive work in co-ordinating the Vision Demonstrator (VD) for Area 1, Knowledge Sharing. The Area 1 VD will focus on two main use cases, CRF’s Competitor Analysis and Rolls-Royce’s Problem Resolution. Indeed the Area 1 VD was so well received that the other areas have decided to adapt their own VDs and base them on the one presented by Area 1.
Victoria was presented with the award by the two project technical directors, Prof. Fabio Ciravegna and Prof. Steffen Staab.
