Knowledge Sharing and Reuse across Media

X-Media is a 4 year long ISP project financed under the European Commission's 6th Framework Programme. The project addresses the issue of knowledge management in complex distributed environments. It will study, develop and implement large scale methodologies and techniques for knowledge management able to support sharing and reuse of knowledge that is distributed in different media (images, documents and data) and repositories (data bases, knowledge bases, document repositories, etc.) or that is inaccessible for current systems, which cannot capture the knowledge implicit across media.

X-Media will study, design and develop:


<li>Effective and efficient new paradigms for knowledge retrieval, sharing and reuse which enable users to define and parameterize views on the available knowledge according to their needs.</li>

<li>Novel and cutting-edge knowledge fusion methods to support knowledge workers in making decisions when confronted with, possibly contradicting, knowledge derived from different resources.</li>

<li>Techniques able to represent and manage (i) uncertainty, (ii) trust and provenance as well as (iii) dynamic aspects of knowledge.</li>

<li>Robust and scalable knowledge acquisition and data analysis tools operating across media boundaries (text, images and data) to automatically cross-relate and annotate text and images with metadata.</li>

<li>A methodology and a technical infrastructure able to deliver knowledge from across media to knowledge workers.</li>

<li>A generic and flexible architecture allowing end users to easily customize it and integrate it with their KM practices.</li></ol>
