IKS in a Nutshell


Interactive Knowledge
Stack”
(IKS) is an integr
ating project targeting small to medium Co
n-
ten
t Management Systems (CMS
)

providers in Europe providing technology platforms for
content and knowledge management to thousands of end user
organizations
. Current CMS
technology platforms lack the capability fo
r semantic web enabled, intelligent content, and
therefore lack the capacity for users
1

to interact with the content at the user’s knowledge le
v-
el. The objective of IKS therefore, is to bring semantic capabilities to current CMS fram
e-
works. IKS puts forwar
d the “Semantic CMS Technology Stack” which merges the advances
in semantic web infrastructure and services with CMS industry needs of coherent archite
c-
tures that fit into existing technology landscapes. IKS will provide the specifications and at
least one

Open Source Reference Implementation of the full IKS Stack. To validate the IKS
Stack prototype solutions for industrial use cases ranging from ambient intelligence infotai
n-
ment, project management and controlling to an online holiday booking system will
be deve
l-
oped.

Executive Summary

This document
reports the showcasing activities performed by the project partners during
2012, in light of
the
plan introduced in the early issue of this deliverable, namely the D8.8.1.


Demonstration activities have been c
arried out mainly during 2012, according to the initial
plan. The document provides an overall picture of the dissemination achievements by the
Consortium partners. Due to the involvement, in task 8.8, of both academic and industrial
companies, industrial
events have been included as well, as a cross
-
WP activity involving a
l-
so WP9 and related showcases.


The demonstrators prove
d

the significant potential of IKS technology for creating advanced
content and knowledge management solutions as well as the opport
unity to
provide added

value to
CMS

solutions adopting it.


According to the
presented plan

all the demonstration activities aim
ed
at
:



Let
ting

both
communities

and industry

discover
the
project’s
concepts and results, as
well as their business benefits
;



Ac
hiev
ing

communities


acceptance for the technologies behind IKS
;



Stimulat
ing

replication effects in the adoption of IKS technology
;



Mobili
sing

interest within the research communities

and the industry
;


The deliverable
structure
remains the same as was use
d for

the first issue of this

do
c
ument.

First, we
introduce

the
target groups
relevant
to the project and the industrial partners within
the Consortium
, t
hen

the

showcased

material
is listed,
including technologies

and
use ca
s
es
.


T
he implementation
achiev
ements

are

presented for each partner, including main o
b
jectives,
demonstra
tors’ overview, supporting material and join
t

events.

Finally, conclusions are drawn.

Introduction

Demonstration activities have been carried out mainly during 2012, according to

the initial
plan.

S
trateg
ies

and instruments used for demonstration a
ctivities about the “Semantic W
ave
E
u
rope”
have been included.


The main goal
in the previous period has been

to find
target
s related

to the knowledge and
main interests of the respectiv
e
partners

that could be suitable for activating what is defined
as the “Semantic Wave Europe”
. Due to the

large variety of potential applications and the
multitude of possible stakeholders and sectors that play a role

for
IKS

concepts, segment
a-
tion into d
ifferent levels of presenting results and content
has been made

necessary to e
n-
sure that the right contents
could

be presented to the right audience
.

Now
the goal

is to
provide a follow
-
up to this plan and present the actual achievements in terms of projec
t vis
i-
bility supporting the sustainability of IKS after the project end.

3

Target Groups

The main target groups
addressed are
:



Developer communities


IT
professionals/software
engineers
/software architects



Industrial communities



senior
-
level decision make
rs in companies
/

organis
a
tions



Scientific communities


Researchers/academia in the semantic
technologies and
knowledge management sector


Thes
e groups
have been
approached
via dissemination activities in international and high
quality events, media, conf
erences etc.


The

major responsibility of research is to communicate the results to the scientific public to
enlighten and to raise awareness of the significance of
the
project
outcome
. Targeting scie
n-
tific communities is thus very well related to Consorti
um partners whose expertise is within
the semantic knowledge management field

including standardisation bodies
.
According to
plans, the d
emonstrators focus
ed

on scientific achievements,
adoption o
f technology comp
o-
nents developed during the project,

possib
ly supported by papers and participation to co
n-
ferences and workshops.


Demonstrators are by definition the
final
result of
a
development effort which is in turn tigh
t
ly
bound to research activities. Developer communities
have been

approached by

project d
e-
velopers, engineers and technicians

presenting technological components produced in the
scope of IKS
,

thus Consortium partners that have been heavily involved in Open Source
pr
o-
jects
or prototyping

and sub
-
prototyping

phases
have been

the best candidates f
or addres
s-
ing this target group.


Nevertheless, t
he latter community is composed by people
within the organisational hiera
r-
chy that have a major say in the all strategic decisions. Such people may not have a strong
IT background
but t
hey are the most influ
ential group
for the sustainability of the project ma
r-
ket
-
wise
. They
have

be
en

reached through personal contacts, articles in the general press
and in the press for the particular industrial sector

and, of course, face to face during indu
s-
trial events
. The

project reach
es

them through

industrial partners joining

commercially or
i-
ented trade fairs or internal events

and this
is
addressed by WP9
, however reported here as
part of the dissemination activities in 2012
. The focus of the demonstra
tors, in this case
, is
to
highlight the added value provided by the integration of IKS in existing commercial products
or standalone
test beds
.

Early Adopter Validation

The early
-
adopters
can

val
idate the various versions of the IKS stack and especially the var
i-
ous components. Components
are made

available across the layers of the stack from the
persistence to the user interaction layer. Such components include for example a sema
n
tic
engine to man
age ontologies and knowledge models, a semantic editor and a semantic co
n-
tent e
n
richment engine.

Market validation of IKS and its components is a major task of the project. The major valid
a-
tion work is performed by the IKS industrial partners Nuxeo, Alkaco
n Software, Polymedia,
Pisano, Day Software and Nemein. They face the challenges of being the first to attempt e
n-
hancing CMS with IKS semantic features
; the following is the list

-

i-
date various IKS components.

Individual Dissemination Achievements


A
ll partners
i
nvolved
have been

aware

of and

committed to a proper communication of the
project results. It is the principle of all dissemination activities
, including the Road Show,
to
use research r
e
sults to create value within the targeted communities of the European

Union,
and for the

partners to promote and ensure a leading edge for themselves within the global
market place.

Following this vision

each partner has been requested to provide a plan

and then a report

for
the
CMS technology

Road Show, aiming at events th
at are perceived at the most interesting
one for the individual co
m
panies.


P
artners

from different WPs, including the industrial ones,

have been

encouraged to support
the demo sessions with any dissemination material that could help the session
itself
to

be
more effective. This include
d
creating
posters, screencasts, blog posts, flyers, papers, ded
i-
cated Web pages and, of course, online demonstrators.


This chapter provides report details about individual dissemination achievements.

5.1

Consiglio Nazionale de
lle Ricerche

5.1.1

Introduction

The main focus of CNR’s showcase activities will be on displaying the use, and usefulness,
of components such as OntoNet, Rule manager, Refactor engine, and how they interact with
other parts of the stack. We have proposed four ma
in demonstrations, which are then show
-
cased in a number of different settings. First, we describe the components that constitute the
three showcases, and subsequently the cases for demonstrating them, as well as the overall
results of IKS
.

5.1.2

Road
s
how Foregr
ound

Companies, i.e. early adopters of IKS, developed two of the demonstrators, while the third
one has been developed internally at CNR
.


WordLift

WordLift
41

is a plugin for the popular Wordpress blogging platform and CMS and it was d
e-
veloped by the Italia
n startup Web solution provider InsideOut10. The goal of WordLift is to
facilitate the creation of Microdata
-
annotated HTML, starting from simple text content.
Thanks to the support announced by major players in the Web search industry and the birth
of sch
e
ma.org, Microdata has gained immediate momentum that has led to literally billions of
ann
o
tated HTML pages in just one year.


The WordLift plugin parses a chunk of text submitted to Wordpress, extracts entities me
n-
tioned in the text and additionally finds

related entities, and converts the representation of the
discovered entities into semantic annotations that are inserted into the text itself. WordLift is
a search engine optimization
-
oriented tool, and therefore relies upon schema.org as the
source of Mi
crodata vocabularies
42
. The compliance of the resulting annotations to industrial



41

http://wordlift.insideout.io

42

http://schema.org/docs/schemas.html



requirements has been shown via a Google Rich Snippet
43

testing tool that was developed
earlier during the project.


Being a Wordpress plugin, WordLift interacts with Apache St
anbol via its RESTful API. Ent
i-
ties are extracted from the submitted text by passing it on to the Stanbol Enhancer, which in
turn relies upon a chain of natural language processing engines, including but not limited to
OpenNLP NER, Keyword Extraction, and
Zemanta. The vocabularies used for describing the
types and relations of extracted entities depend on each individual engine, therefore a s
e
c-
ond step is necessary for converting the annotations into schema.org
-
based annotations.
This step is performed by a

post
-
processing engine of the Enhancer chain, namely the R
e-
factor engine, which in turn relies upon the Stanbol Rule manager and language, as well as
an OntoNet scope serving as an "operating table" for knowledge processing. Multiple Refa
c-
tor engines can
be instantiated using different rule sets, and they can be configured to lookup
entities on the Stanbol EntityHub or on the Web. Along with the Wordpress application itself,
WordLift comes with its set of inference rules of varied complexity, for convertin
g multiple
controlled vocabularies into schema.org equivalents.


Fedora Commons D
ata
B
rowser

Fedora Commons is an extensible software platform for digital asset management, largely
employed in the digital library domain. The Stanbol early adopter Acuity Un
limited has deve
l-
oped an extension that enriches content metadata by adding entailments computed using
Stanbol. Acuity Unlimited is a consultancy and technology development company located in
London (UK) addressing mainly the Digital Libraries, Media and P
ublishing sectors across
the digital content chain, with particular focus on semantic techniques and technologies. The
Fedora Commons data browser project demonstrates the Stanbol Java API for ontology and
rule management.


The goal of this demo is to pres
ent a unified view on a Fedora data repository that can be
navigated and queried by end users, thus contributing to making Fedora a content manag
e-
ment platform out of the software framework that it originally is. This particular content r
e-
pos
i
tory is a col
lection of image catalogues and related metadata. The metadata of content
objects is initially limited to the Fedora vocabulary, and do not include factual information
such as the creators of each image. To make up for this limitation, metadata is enriched

by
linkage to the Getty United Lists of Artist Names (ULAN) repository. Thanks to the aforeme
n-
tioned unified view, it is then possible to browse the enriched set of relations that a content
object has with other content objects, or collections thereof. Th
e data browser currently
shows a comparison view, where content objects are on one hand shown as they are orig
i-
nally stored in Fedora, and on the other hand their representation after being processed by
Stanbol.


The implementation combines Stanbol plugins

that make use of the platform's Java API, a
Fedora extension that communicates with the Stanbol plugins via JMS messages, and the
front
-
end Web application for data browsing. User navigation from the Web application is
wrapped as SPARQL queries that are d
irectly run on the Stanbol SPARQL endpoint.


Stanbol OntoNet, along with its Clerezza
-
backed storage facility, serves as the hub where
the original Fedora metadata is linked with third
-
party knowledge in the form of Web ontol
o-
gies and Linked Data. This is
possible due to Fedora supporting RDF export of its native
metadata, and Acuity having provided a representation of the Getty ULAN thesaurus in
SKOS. The full application is able to scale across multiple ~100MiB SKOS thesauri. Metad
a-
ta enrichments from the

ULAN thesaurus are performed as simple entailments represented
in the Stanbol Rule language and executed using the Stanbol Rule manager.

Stanbol used with SKOSware and Liferay

SKOSware is a product provided by the early adopter company etcware. It suppor
ts the co
l-
laborative creation, publishing and management of SKOS thesauri. etcware has used this
tool in combination with Apache Solr and Liferay to provide a search engine for the Italian
Data Protection Authority, however there has been a need for an imp
roved search exper
i-
ence and functionalities such as automatic tagging of content. This gave rise to the particip
a-
tion of etcware in the IKS early adopters program, and resulted in a demonstrator showing a
new search system enhanced by Stanbol capabil
i
ties.



The resulting demonstrator, named Etcware4Stanbol uses the content hub in Stanbol and a
custom enhancement engine for providing a massive enrichment of the documents in the r
e-
pository It also provides automatic linking of keywords, and links to DBPedia
and Geonames,
which will in the future be presented to the user as "additional suggestions of related co
n-
tent".


Aemoo

Aemoo is a Web application supporting exploratory search over the Semantic Web, deve
l-
oped internally at CNR. Through a simple keyword
-
ba
sed search interface, users can query
Aemoo for information about any entity, which is then collected by aggregating knowledge
from diverse sources such as Linked Data, Wikipedia, Twitter, and Google News. Aemoo
provides users with an effective summary of
knowledge about an entity, including explan
a-
tions that clarify the relevance of a certain piece of information, and presents it through a u
s-
er
-
friendly interface that supports exploration of further knowledge.


Aemoo presents and allows browsing of informa
tion based on encyclopaedic knowledge pa
t-
terns (EKPs), which exploits Semantic Web techniques and the structure of Web links for
both filtering and enriching query results with relevant related knowledge coming from d
i-
verse Web sources. Aemoo filters the r
etrieved knowledge, to show a reasonable and rel
e-
vant set to the user, including the motivation of why a certain piece of information is included.


Aemoo is released as a Web application composed by a server
-
side component based on a
REST Web service in Ja
va, and a client
-
side component based on HTML and JavaScript.
The client interacts with third
-
party components via REST interfaces through AJAX. Apache
Stanbol is used for performing identity resolution on user queries, as well as in the text of the
tweets
, and news items.


The Apache Stanbol Enhancer component is used for getting suggestions of possible entity
annotations found in the content of Wikipedia pages, tweets or news items. Identity resol
u-
tion in Aemoo is performed using the Stanbol Entity Hub, w
hich associates URIs in Linked
Data, namely DBPedia, to any recognized entity. The Apache Stanbol Enhancer component
is thus used to recognize entities from Wikipedia pages, tweets or news, which contain nat
u-
ral language text. The entities recognized are d
ynamically added to the graph map of Aemoo
and the textual context around the entities is used for explaining relations between entities
.

5.1.3

Dissemination Achievements

CNR
, being a research organization,

has

mainly target scientific conferences and events
whe
re academia meets industry, for our showcase activities. However, the above demonstr
a-
tors
have been

available to any IKS partner for demonstration at other events as well, hence,
below we only describe the events where CNR
has participated in

a showcase
ac
tivity
, while
the actual demonstrators may
have
be
en

used in other contexts as well
.



Scientific conferences

During 2012 four main conferences have been targeted:



ESWC

(

-
conferences.org/
)
-

May 2012, Heraklion (Greece).

ISWC

(

)


Novemb
er 2012, Boston (USA)
.


While ESWC, EKAW and ISWC are mainly targeting the scientific community, I
-
Semantics
attracts attention from a mix of industry and academic actors. EKAW targets

r
e
searchers in
the field of knowledge engineering and knowledge management, i.e. without a specific focus
on the Web, while ESWC and ISWC targets all areas of semantic technologies, but in this
case with a clear Web focus. Members of the CNR involved in I
KS attended all these confe
r-
ences, either as organizers or participants, which gave several opportunities for showcasing
also outside the conference schedule. Events related to IKS research, arranged by CNR
members, included for example the Workshop on Ont
ology Patterns, held at ISWC2012
(chairs were Aldo Gangemi and Eva Blomqvist).


IKS
-
related scientific papers have been submitted to all these conferences, and the following
conference presentations have been made:


"

In addition to scientific talks, representatives of IKS presented a showcase and a poster (e
n-
t
i
tled "Interactive Knowledge Stack
: Enhancing the Semantic Capabilities of Content Ma
n-
agement Systems
") at the EU project and networking tra
ck at ESWC2012an IKS and Stanbol
tutorial, where several partners contributed, was held at EKAW 2012. The tutorial introduced

-
tools/fred



IKS and its software packages, and presented how semantics can help improve a CMS sy
s-
tem in general. Furthermore, all the Stanbol
components and their functionalities were
demonstra
t
ed, together with the VIE project components. The overview of IKS technologies
was co
n
cluded by demonstrating the Stanbol development environment and showing how
components can be customized and configure
s, including a hands
-
on session where the pa
r-
ticipants explored these opportunities first
-
hand. The tutorial then proceeded with two f
o-
cused demonstration tasks, where the participants got more hands
-
on experience while at
the same time demonstrating the c
apabil
i
ties of the components. The first task focused on
configuring the Entity Hub with custom vocabularies and datasets, while the second focused
on using the complete Stanbol to create a kind of "Hello World" applic
a
tion using several of
the components.

The tutorial was not held solely by CNR, but included participation from
several IKS partners, such as Nuxeo, DFKI and Salzburg r
e
search
.

Teaching events

and invited talks

In addition to the conferences and tutorials mentioned previously, IKS showcases ha
ve been
presented within university courses and summer schools. CNR has used the IKS tutorial m
a-
terial already available, in combination with the demonstrators (as described above), and
hands
-
on tasks, to teach semantic technologies to students. In particu
lar we have participa
t-
ed in:



SSSW2012 summer school

(
http://sssw.org/2012/
)
-

July 2012,
Cercedilla

(Spain).



Semantic Technologies in Practice

-

PhD course at Linköping University, Sweden
-

IKS and Stanbol seminar held

on October 30th and November 1st 2012.


IKS showcases have also been presented in the context of several invited talks, such as:



"
Making sense of Web content with Knowledge Patterns
" part of the Seminar on S
e-
mantic Technologies series, occasion on Octobe
r 30th in Linköping, Sweden. The
seminar presentation included an overview of IKS and a demonstration of the Aemoo
showcase.



"
Semantic Applications for Open Data
"
, Doctoral lecture at University of Bologna,
Faculty of Law, Bologna, (March, 2012).



"
A Road
map for LOD in the PA
"
, Keynote Lecture at the OnToContent Workshop,
Ro
me
,
(
2012
).



As part of our future plans t
here will be a Semantic Web Summer School
arranged
in Br
a
zil
next
year in
May, where Stanbol technolo
gies

will be showcased
.

Meeting industry

An opportunity for academia to meet industry is given through the so
-
called
meetups
45
. A
Semantic Web meetup
46

group already exists in Rome (Italy), where CNR hosted a meeting
on May 17th 2012. The meetup in Rome featured presentations of Aemoo, WordLift, an
d
SKOSware (as previously introduced). In addition we intend to arrange a meetup in Paris
(France), to present the overall picture of Stanbol as well as our showcases, but this is still a
future plan
.

5.1.4

Considerations

The dissemination activities of CNR hav
e focused on three main target groups; the scientific
community, students (and others wanting to learn new technologies), and industry. The sc
i-
entific

community can benefit from IKS results by building on them in future work and new
EU
-
funded projects. Stu
dents and other developers that learn about IKS technology in
courses, tutorials or seminars can bring the technologies out to their institutions and future
workplaces (potentially also in industry). Finally, discussing and showcasing technologies d
i-
rectly

to industry will increase the concrete uptake of project results by current CMS provi
d-
ers, and other enterprises. What we have presented in the report above are the activities of
2012, since this is the year when most of the dissemination has taken place,

however also
during 2011 some similar courses, tutorials, and not to mention paper presentations were
held.


Although CNR has mostly focused on the ontology management, rules and reasoning co
m-
ponents during the project development, several of our showcas
es (c.f. WordLift and SKO
S-
ware) also utilize other parts of the IKS stack, in particular the enhancers and the entity hub
of Stanbol. This means that our showcases have also acted as a way to show the integration
of components from several stack layers, an
d showcased how they can be combined, and
work together to solve several real
-
world use cases of early adopter companies.




In addition to all the above described events, CNR has been an active participant in creating
blog posts and news reports on variou
s mailing
-
lists, to keep industry and the general co
m-
munity up
-
to
-
date on IKS results. In summary, this has contributed to that IKS is today a well
-
known project both in the scientific community and in industry, with a considerable uptake of
its technologi
es and a vital development community that will carry on improving Stanbol and
other technologies also in the future.

Ltd.

5.2.1

Introduction

SRDC is a spin
-
off company of the Middle East Technical University, Sof
tware Research and

Development Center. It is established in February, 2007 in METU’s techno park by Prof. Dr.
Asuman Dogac. SRDC enjoys strong backing from METU for transferring the RTD efforts of
the university to
the industry and the government.



SRDC's

expertise areas include: Interoperability and Conformance Testing, Semantic Web
(Ontologies, Reasoner, Semantic Web Services), Semantic Interoperability, eBusiness and
eHealth, Security and Privacy Infrastructures.


SRDC has the responsibility of the per
sistence layer of the Interactive Knowledge Stack
(IKS) and based on this, it has developed two main components:




Contenthub: Provides features for semantic indexing and search.



CMS Adapter: Provides features for integration with existing content managemen
t
systems.


So, the main purpose of SRDC during the dissemination activities was to highlight prominent
features of these components.




These components have been promoted in various conferences, workshops and seminars.
As a result several dissemination ma
terials have come out including papers, videos, prese
n-
tations, blog posts, online demonstr
a
tions, etc.

5.2.2

RoadShow Foreground

SRDC has mainly featured the two main components i.e the Contenthub and CMS Adapter
during the dissemination activities. There are t
wo main settings in which these components
are used; "Semantic Content Management" and "Sling
-
stanbol" respectively.

Semantic Content Management

This is a three step setting of various components of Apache Stanbol.


In the first step, content items are su
bmitted to Contenthub and they are enhanced using E
n-
hancement engines, and semantic properties are indexed along with the content items. D
e-
fault index of Contenthub identifies a number of “semantic” fields of found entities (such as a
work institution of a

pe
r
son).


Afterwards, in the search process Contenthub is able to find documents for a given query
term even if that query term is not included in the actual content of the content item.


In the second step of this setting ,LDPath integration of Contenthu
b is exploited. Content
items are submitted to a certain Solr core which is previously created based on an LDPath
program and managed by the Contenthub. During the enhancement process, a referenced
site is used to produce enhancements, including semantic p
roperties which can indexed by
the same Solr core (i
n
dex) identified by its name.


In the third step of the setting, a domain specific ontol
o
gy to create a referenced site that will
be used to look up for
enhancements are

created is used. This ontology wil
l also be used to
suggest related keywords for the user's query term.


This demonstration includes components from Apache Stanbol:



Contenthub



CMS Adapter



Enhancer



Entityhub


We have deployed an online demonstration for this setting of the Stanbol component
s. As
the specific domain, we have chosen the "ehealth" domain. Based on this choice, we have
created an health domain specific index, also the source CMS i.e CRX has been populated
with health realted documents and those doc
u
ments are conveyed to the Stan
bol framework
to be enhanced and indexed in the domain specific index semant
i
cally.


An introduction to the online demonstration can be found in
47
. The server onto which the
Stanbol instance has been deployed is deployed at
48
. Lastly, the content managemen
t which
was used as the source CMS is at
49
.

Slingstanbol

Slingstanbol is an integration of Apache Sling, Apache Stanbol, annotateJS and VIE comp
o-
nents. Sling provides a JCR compliant repository which has a WebDav entry point. So, users
can populate the und
erlying JCR repository by creating folders and files in the file system
folder dedicated to the WebDav server.


When a file is pushed to Sling, it is automatically enhanced by the Enhancement Engines of
Stanbol. In the meantime, CMS Adapter retrieves the n
ewly submitted file and submits it to
the Contenthub. After populating this way, Contenthub is used to perform keyword search
and faceted search over the submitted files.


This demo is prepared by the Adobe Team and it integrates:



Apache Sling



Enhancer



Con
te
n
thub



CMS Adapter



VIE and annotateJS


Adobe team has published two blogs for the Sling
-
stanbol framework which are:

ing and search.


ApacheCon Europe 2012



November 2012
,
Sinsheim
(Germany)

ApacheCons are community events, organized by the developers involved in the Apache
Software Foundation, for all the developers out there building on

top of ASF software.


In beginning of November 2012, an Apache Con was held in Sinsheim, Germany. Together
with the SRFG and UPB teams, SRDC team was also there to introduce new features of
Apache Stanbol components. There was a great interest to this con
ference and we were
able to reach a very important audience which was formed by developers who are already
very active in the Semantic Web or Linked Data fields. From this perspective, this event can
be a fruitful dissemination activ
i
ty.


There was a
LinkedData track

in the coference which was dominated by the prese
n
tations of
Apache Stanbol. In our presentation, we have mainly introduced the new developments in
the semantic indexing and searc
h infrastructure of the Contenthub component of Apache
Stanbol.


We have put the presentation online and also disseminated it through the social media cha
n-
nels. The presentation can be found
at

.


Plans on the usage of IKS technologies:


Using Apache Stanbol in BIVEE Project

We also plan to use Apache Stanbol within a newly starting FP7 project. The name of the
project is BIVE
E: Business Innovation and Virtual Enterprise Environment (www.bivee.eu).

stanbol



BIVEE will be developing IT systems to help people design and test pr
o
cess improvement
and innovation especially in complex manufacturing systems involving many enterprises (Vi
r-
tual
Enterprises). One of the software tools which will be addressed by BIVEE is going to
manage the innovation activities within a company. Innovation management includes idea
management. This can be thought as a Content Management System, in which content is
mostly new ideas, comments, ratings in free text and multimedia data such as pictures,
graphics and diagrams. On the other hand, BIVEE is going to develop generic ontologies for
innovation management within virtual enterprises in a
d
dition to domain specifi
c ontologies for
the business sectors of project's end
-
user organ
i
zations.


Design and implementation activities have not started yet for BIVEE. However, as SRDC, we
proposed to use some components of Apache Stanbol for idea manag
e
ment activities within
BI
VEE. Contenthub, Enhancer and Entityhub components are good candidates to perform
idea management while people are sharing ideas by submitting free
-
text content. With the
support of horizontal and domain ontologies, entity identification can be restric
t
ed
by defining
new referenced sites. For example, a user may post a new idea to BIVEE idea management
software (this will be a special purpose CMS) and several entities can be extracted from the
text and the idea can automatically be categorized by the help o
f Enhancer.


The ideas can be kept in Contenthub with several semantic indexing facilities. Hence, other
users can easily search over the posted ideas, comments etc. Moreover, the system can a
s-
sociate different ideas and comments with each other as the ent
ities describe the content.

5.2.4

Considerations

The dissemination
activities of SRDC have

been mainly carried out during the year 2012.
These dissemination activities include community workshop, academic conferences, sem
i-
nars. As a result of these events, vario
us types of dissemination materials such as academic
papers, presentations, videos have come out.


Aside from the community events, SRDC has also published various blog posts and online
demonstrations. Such
kind of activities has

also been disseminated thr
ough the social m
e
dia
networks.


SRDC has mainly focused on the persistence layer components of Apache Stanbol fram
e-
work which are the Contenthub and CMS Adapter. As a result, the dissemination activities
mainly featured these components and various integr
ations of them with other Stanbol co
m-
ponents.


Another important point apart from the individual dissemination activities is the Apache Sof
t-
ware Foundation (ASF) in which the Stanbol project has been developed. The ASF itself is a
very popular organization

among developers that it provides disseminating of the work done
as soon as the new implementation or developments are published to the code base. Fu
r-
thermore, people can follow issues or mailing lists about what is going on about the Stanbol
project.


Co
nsidering all these factors, the dissemination of persistence components as well as the
IKS itself is quite successful. IKS and Apache Stanbol project is already a worldwide
-
known
project and many people interested in the project appear continuously.

NUXEO

5.3.1

Introduction

Nuxeo is Open Source Enterprise Content Management vendor (
http://nuxeo.com
).

Nuxeo develops a document management platform and sells support subscriptions and ser
-
vices to system integrators or end user orga
nizations. As such, we develop a set of
exte
n-
sions

for the platform to make it semantically smarter by leveraging the results of the
deve
l-
opments

of IKS.
.

5.3.2

Road Show Foreground

The current integration is mostly focused on Stanbol Enhancement Engines, the En
tity Hub,
the Reasoners and soon the Content Hub.


For technological reason we already have a legacy Ajax stack that is used to build the UI in
Nuxeo and that is a bit redundant with the VIE.js related components. We are investigating
with making our UI st
ack less monolithic and that would help make it possible to reuse IKS
javascript tools but this will likely not happen before next year since it involves a lot of
refa
c-
toring

on the platform.


This integration allowed us to start a partnership with Temis (
a French text analytics software
vendor) to make it possible to combine Nuxeo and Temis using Stanbol services as
config
u-
rable

integration middle
-
ware.


A demo
nstrator

is publicly available here:
http://temi
s.demo.nuxeo.com/nuxeo

: demo /
demo.


This demonstrator will target a common customer: the AFP news agency.


Furthermore our sales team reported that various prospective customers are interested in
Semantic Technologies and we hope think that the IKS pro
ject will help answer their needs
.

5.3.3

Dissemination Achievements

Nuxeo demonstrated the capabilities of the Stanbol services at the following conferences:


SemWebPro

(
http://www.semweb.pro/
)
-

May 2012, Paris (France)


SemWebPro is a yearly conference organized in Paris and attracts an audience mostly from
the content management industry focusing on applications of Semantic Web and linked data.
We gave a presentation of the Apache Stanbol architecture and features and ga
ve a live
demo of the Stanbol feature and
sample

integration with the Nuxeo platform.


IKS Community Workshop
-

12
-
13 June, Salzburg (Austria)


We presented the architecture of Apache Stanbol and a demo of its integration with the
Nuxeo Document Management

platform with a focus on the Enhancement engines and their
integration with the EntityHub the to an audience of IKS Early Adopters and other IKS co
m-
munity members.


We also presented a special session on how to train a topic model for automated documen
t
classification.




Nuxeo World 2012

(
http://nuxeoworld.com
)


October 25
-
26, Paris (France)


We introduced the concepts of automated semantic enhancements of text document and
cross
-
lingual indexing with concepts from

a knowledge base to an audience of Nuxeo cu
s-
tomers and integration partners.


The presentation featured a live demo of Nuxeo and Apache Stanbol on text document from
the Agence France Press + text automatically extracted from the audio tracks of video new
s
reports from the AFP in English, French and Arabic.


EKAW

(
http://ekaw2012.ekaw.org/
)


October 2012, Galway City (Ireland)


Andrea Nuzzolese (CNR) and Olivier Grisel (Nuxeo) gave a full day tutorial on Apache St
a
n-
bol. In the morning we gave a presentation of the concepts of automated text annotation,
semantic linking, indexing, refactoring and reasoning and how they are implemented in the
Apache Stanbol architecture along with demonstrations.


The afternoon was d
edicated
to set hands
-
on exercises
. We (Nuxeo) particular we demo
n-
strated to load domain specific entities to the Entity Hub (book description along with their
ISBN codes), how to configure existing Enhancement Engines to leverage this new data and
how to
write a new Enhancement engine in Java to detect valid yet unknown ISBN codes in
free text.


The source material for those exercises is available on github:
http://github.com/ogrisel/stanbol
-
isbn


The
material for the presentations is available on the IKS wiki page for the event:
http://wiki.iks
-
project.eu/index.php/EKAW_2012_IKS_Tutorial


The audience was composed of Java devel
opers with prior experience with the Semantic
Web technology stack.

5.3.4

Considerations

Nuxeo further plan to improve the existing integration in 2013, in particular improving some
Enhancement engines to better support the French language using Open Source mode
ls as
requested by prospective customers.


We further plan to improve the Nuxeo / Stanbol integration with new features such as a trai
n-
able topic classifiers with iterative refinement of the model based on accumulated user fee
d-
back.

P
olymedia

SpA

5.4.1

Introduct
ion

Polymedia, industrial partner, is a

leading company active in the European market as sof
t-
ware vendor and integrator, specialized in Media & Channel Integration, with more than 10
years track record of successful business with Media and Telco leaders. P
olymedia is a fully
owned subsidiary of KIT digital INC. group, headquartered in Milan.

Core of the offering is
KIT Ko
s
mos

(the Polymedia CMS)
, a complete content management software suite allowing
to ma
n
age the whole life
-
cycle of rich contents and video.




The

customer base includes large broadcasters
,

telecom operators, editorial and publishing
groups, advertising agencies and directories.

5.4.2

R
oad Show Foreground

Provided the company’s core business and products the demonstrators
have been
sho
w-
cased

as part
of WP9 activities (Task 9.3 “
Showcasing vertical application of the Interactive
Knowledge Stack
”) during 2012.


This section

provides a

report on
the show cases
achievements
in light of the

plan reported
in D8.8.1 and the related

technology components adop
ted. They’re all

related to a
Content
Management System empowered by semantic c
a
pabilities
provided

by

IKS
.

The integration plan led us to design t
hree demonstrators, leveraging on different techno
l
ogy
component
s

provided by IKS
. Such

integration is perfor
med for
both the
Polymedia CMS
open source version and KIT
C
osmos (Polymedia’s CMS commercial version).


More details
are provided below
.

Polymedia CMS Content Enr
i
chment

The idea is to provide the publisher running Polymedia CMS Editor with the possibilit
y to cr
e-
ate a textual article. IKS will bring the
capability

to enrich
the entered

text following two di
f-
ferent
approaches
:



T
he first one is based on automatic concepts extraction. Such concepts are presen
t-
ed to the user grouped in categories. The publish
er is enabled to click on a concept
and retrieve related images and DBPedia pages

basing on a syntactic link
;



T
he second one is similar to the previous

method

but the
presented

concepts
are the
result of a semantic processing aimed at presenting only the l
ist of concepts related
to the article’s context.


This use case leverages
the following

components

developed in IKS
:



The Enhancement Engines
;



The Ontology Manager (dealing with Linked Open Data)
.

Polymedia CMS
Editor

Annotation

This use case is again base
d on the Polymedia CMS Editor, This time the product’s editor is
replaced with a different one developed in IKS, allowing the publisher to semantically tag the
entered text.

When done, both the textual content and the generated metadata are saved within th
e
Polymedia CMS database opening up a wide range of possibilities.
These include

exploiting
the semantically annotated text within the product by implementing additional functionalities
or adopt

components provided by IKS for further processing or
metadata

querying.


This use case leverage

on the following components developed in IKS:



Hallo Editor
;



VIE and annotateJS
.

Video Semantic Annotation in Polymedia CMS

The previously described demonstrators, although still part of dissemination bag, are som
e-
what out
dated with respect to the business profile of the Polymedia holding, KIT digital, mai
n-


ly focu
s
ing on multimedia and end
-
to
-
end video production. For this reason particular focus
has been put during 2012 on the multimedia demonstrator, described below.


The

Video Semantic Annotation

demo

(or “Polymedia Multimedia Demo”)

focuses on mult
i-
media contents,
and has been
implemented

supporting

i
n
itially

WP4, Task 4.3 “Vertical Use
Case”

(more details in D4.3)

and then WP9, Task 9.3 “
Sho
w
casing vertical application
of the
Interactive Knowledge Stack
”, aiming at improving the raw prototype to produce a more a
p-
pealing demo for the 2012 roadshow
.


The
use case
workflow foresees two actors:



T
he publisher, using the Polymedia Video Editor in order to prepare the chosen vi
deo
by adding tags (e.g.: the name of the actor appearing at a certain time, in the video
stream)
;



T
he user, consuming the considered video thanks to a semantic player capable of r
e-
producing the multimedia content while interpreting the tags in real
-
time.
The comb
i-
nation of both these features will be used to present
pictures or articles linked to the
current scene. Of course the user is enabled to pause the video and navigate through
the stream.


This
demonstrator

leverages on the following components deve
loped in IKS:



Semantic Video Annotation Services (Editor + Player)



VIE Image widget (Player)


It’s interesting to note that the initial
two demo

prototypes

are
based on

the Polymedia CMS
E
d
itor,
open source version. This is the standalone implementation of

the bigger commercial
product
namely
KIT
C
osmos, providing only a subset of the
full

product’s functionalities

(namely the Editor)
.

In Polymedia we

often

use this environment as a testbed for evaluating the technical impact
of new fe
a
tures
on the commerc
ial product. It’s also used to speed up the implementation of
demonstrators, proof of concepts and showca
s
es
.

The latter demo (Video Semantic Annotation), on the other side,
being more mature thanks
to the experience gathered during the early developments,

is

actually integrated in KIT
C
o
s-
mos, the full
-
featured CMS solutions from Polymedia
/KIT digital

(please have a look at the
Annex
I

for more details about the multimedia demo).


In this way the benefits are two folds: in first place we can evaluate the te
chnical impact of
integrating IKS components while maintaining a flexible demonstrator in terms of u
p-
dates/additional features/refinements. Then we can also evaluate the robustness of the
commercial solution, including the deployment environment, combined
with additional fe
a-
tures coming from the integration of IKS
, showing the results to prospects and industrial a
u-
dience
. Concerning Video Semantic Annotation, the latter is exactly what we plan
ned

to do.
Of course here the drawback is that we’re dealing with

a commercial product thus flexibility is
somewhat
restricted by company’s business goals.

Nevertheless this didn’t prevent us from
implementing the desired features within our product.

5.4.3

Additional Dissemination Material

During 2012 a number of live demo ha
ve been performed with prospects or, in general, the
audience attending industrial events that Polymedia joined. However, to enlarge the public
exposure of the IKS multimedia demonstrator and to support the sustainability after the pr
o-


ject contractual end,

as part of the activities carried out in WP9, Task 9.3,
a dedicated Web
site
60

has been created to host such a demonstrator.

5.4.4

Dissemination Achievements

Industrial events cover industrial workshops and general industrial trade fairs. Bot
h form
ats
are envisaged for industrial demos
by Polymedia. The former are usually organized for a s
e-
lected limited audience pertaining to a limited number of industrial sectors, on a local basis or
in a road show format. Provided past experiences they are usuall
y highly effective, because
of their short duration and focused contents. The audience is usually invited on a one to one
basis thus guaranteeing a high level of participation in terms of quality and interest. As indu
s-
trial workshops are usually planned in

shorter terms,
at the time of reporting
Polymedia will
parti
c
ipate and spread the project ideas

in the following events. Just please consider that this
list may be updated during 2012.

Considerations

The dissemination activities performed by Polymedia ha
ve

been carried out mainly in the
scope of the vertical industrial showcase field.

A
s an industrial partner and in light of the r
e-
cent acquisition from KIT digital, Polymedia focused on demonstrating its core product,
namely the Polymedia Video CMS part of the KIT Cloud suite, empowered by IKS technol
o-
gies related to semantic video annota
tion and content enrichment.


This in turn
led
to integrate
semantic
annotation capabilities firstly within our open
-
source
testbed version of the Polymedia CMS, exploring textual annotation, and finally in the co
m-
mercial version of the product, introducin
g semantic video annotation. As part of the prot
o-
type for the industrial showcase planned for 2012, an additional component, namely the
Semantic Video Player, has been developed from scratch integrating both open source and
standard tec
h
nologies like HTML5

+ javascript

as well as

semantic enrichment

provided by
IKS through the

VIE
component
. Initially
the
player module

has been
released

as a raw pr
o-
totype to present the whole scenario workflow to the community
and the Commission, to
r
e-
ceive fee
d
back
,

and su
bsequently as an improved version of the same component, aiming at
introducing

additional features and an overall higher level of maturity and appeal. The latter
activity has been recognized as required for the effectiveness of the dissemination events
sch
eduled du
r
ing the last year of the project and beyond.


Such activities have been conducted during the whole year and not only focusing on the last
6 months.

A dedicated Web page supporting public showcasing has been set up with related
screencasts and fly
ers. Both the Video Editor and the Semantic Player
demonstrators
are
available online

and will be maintained after the contractual end of the project.


Prospects and, more in general, the audience of the performed demonstrations have been
industrial compan
ies with knowledge and experience
with
in the end
-
to
-
end multimedia chain,
interested in understanding the potential of semantics
applied to

current and future products
and the level of maturity achieved so far by the technologies developed in such a field.

Considerations

All the positive feedback from our customers tells

us that the new features, based on sema
n-
tic technologies, are important for the future of our product
packagemaster
.


W
ithin the IKS Project we improved our knowledge and experiences of semantic technol
o-
gies. That was very important to u
nderstand the new
possibilities
of semantic features.

Integration of all the new options in an “easy to use” way for our customers is the ob
jective
for the next few months and a continuous process in the product development.

Conclusions

Considering the timetable of the project, the dissemination road

show took place in the last
year. F
or some partners (mainly the industrial ones) it started already from the beginning of
2012, for other it focused in the last 6 months of project in order to show advancements as
much mature as possible. The variety of demonstrators, screencasts, articles,

blog

posts,
presentations, etc. performed witnessed the high level of commitment the Consortium par
t-
ners produced towards the sustainability of the project after its contractual end.


Industrial partners, on their side, spread the
message about
semantics

in many national and
international events
raising

interest
.

T
he respective field experts

assisted to a number of
demonstrations
showing the added value introduced by IKS in prototypes derived
from

mai
n-
stream products
.


Academic dissemination, also
trigger
ed an overall positive feedback from the scientific co
m-
munities. The spent effort culminated in the graduation of Apache Stanbol as a top
-
level
Apache project and this has been achieved wit
h
in the lifetime of IKS itself.

Polymedia Multimeda Show
case


Pu
b-
lic Document

7.1.1

Overview

During 2011 Polymedia has been acquired by KIT digital and, while maintaining the same r
e-
source and products asset, the core business shifted more towards the multimedia side. For
this reason and in order to
re
-
align

the syn
ergies with IKS in terms of expertise and business
validation a new demonstrator has been designed and developed: the multimedia vertical
use case, supporting the roadshow activities planned during 2012.
The use case workflow
foresees two actors
: t
he publi
sher, using the Polymedia
/KIT Cloud

Video Editor in order to
pr
e
pare the chosen video by adding tags (e.g.: the name of the actor appearing at a certain
time, in the video stream)

and the

user, consuming the considered video thanks to a sema
n-
tic player cap
able of re
-
producing the multimedia content while interpreting the tags in real
-
time. The combination of both these features will be used to present pictures or articles
linked to the current scene.

This demonstrator currently leverages on the following co
mp
o-
nents developed in IKS:



Semantic Video Annotation Services (Editor + Player)



VIE Image widget (Player)

D
uring 2012

Polymedia
work
ed
on a brand new UI for the Semantic Player

to be
used

during
the

planned industrial events. The player improved in many ar
eas providing a more robust
appeal for showcasing activities.

7.1.2

MultiMedia Use Case

The idea behind the demonstrator is to enable
the

semantic video annotations through
the
Polymedia CMS Video Editor (included in
the
KIT Cosmos

commercial suite
) and
the

vid
eo
playback harnessing the annotated video to provide
an enriched consumption experience
(i.e.: through VIE widget) for the end
-
user.

The scenario is
centered

on t
he editorial office of a website dealing with cinema, using a vi
d-
eo annotation software
to
ad
d semantic tags to the various stages of the considered movie
(for example the location where the scene was shot or the actors that are present on stage)
saving and thus storing the generated semantic meta
data in an internal repository.
The jou
r-
nalist who
will review an annotated movie

or the end
-
user

will have the chance to see, using
a compatible player, the set of additional information retrieved starting from the semantic
metadata linked to the movie; for example he/she can see some pictures of an actor

present
into a scene or the details about the location where the scene was shot.

As already mentioned t
he Polymedia CMS Video Editor is part of the KIT cosmos suite of
products and allows the content producer (e.g.: the journalist) to choose a video conte
nt and
edit it before publishing, moving the timeline at the desired point, adding start/end markings,
cutting and pasting video segments with single
-
frame precision, etc.





Figure
10



Defining a video segment within the Polymed
ia CMS Video Editor

It has been extended
permit
ting

to add semantic tags to a specific video
segment
: basically
the
publisher

can add semantic information about the scene, f
or example the name of an a
c-
tor, linking it to a specific plug
-
in from the list of
the available one. Every plug
-
in allows ente
r-
ing specific metadata, as part of the annotation. Think about a plug
-
in as a software
component responsible of handling the annotation on the player side thus triggered by the
player, during the playback phase.




Figure
11



Annotate a video segment, linking it to a player’s plug
-
in and entering annotation
details for it



Once
the annotation phase is completed
, all the resulting metadata can be saved in a sto
r-
age system simply through a
Web Service call to the

IKS

Sem
antic Video Annotation Se
r-
vices. These services allow
handling

the metadata into a format compatible with the type of
data to be stored, in this case semantic data. This “metadata conversion” function
ality is
transparently pr
ovided.
After an evaluation phase considering different metadata formats
(Media Fragments
73
, Event Ontology
74
, Ontology for Media Resources
75
), including a propri
e-
tary one (by Polymedia), we decided to adopt the open source implementation of the
po
p-
corn.js
76

p
roject
. First of all it shares similarities with features envisaged as requirements by
the considered scenario,

moreover it is already supported by OSS player components and
related plug
-
ins
.

Concerning the Semantic Player, Polymedia

initially
developed a

HTML5
-
based video player
prototype
capable of playing back the video content published and annotated by the
Polymedia/KIT cosmos video editor.

Such video player is compliant with the popcorn.js
metadata format
mentioned above
thus, interfacing video annota
tion services provided by
IKS, retrieves both the video reference and the metadata associated with it
.



Figure
12



Semantic Player early prototype

For demonstration purposes we’ve decided to leverage on the annotated semantic ta
gs by
showing enriched contents in real
-
time, exploiting the concept of “plug
-
ins” provided by the
popcorn.js

metadata format. In particular we focused on displaying pictures related to the
annotated scene, retrieving them in two different ways:

1.

Via an exi
sting plug
-
in running on top of
Flickr

APIs, the popular social network about
photography
-

Such images are retrieved basing on a syntactic search by keywords.

2.

Via a custom plug
-
in, developed by
Polymedia
,
encapsulating the invocation of

the
VIE Widget
77

de
veloped in
the scope of project,

that retrieves images starting from
keywords and semantic tags. Such images are the result of a semantic processing
operated by IKS technologies by providing keywords/semantic tags as input param
e-
ters


The early prototype l
ooked quite poor in terms of graphical impact and user interaction. For
this reason this component has been further enhanced and prepared to be shown at the i

Semantic Player for Industrial Road Show

As you can see from the above picture the video is now played back in full screen, the tim
e-
line is located on the bottom of the frame, in overlay with semi
-
transparent prope
rties, and
could be navigated in real
-
time by simply dragging the cursor from left to right. The user is
enabled to play/pause the video by pressing the related button on the timeline bar.


On the left side of the frame, again in overlay, a semi
-
transparen
t grey box lists the widgets
(plug
-
ins) associated with the current video. The user can get rid of them, if not interested, by
simply clicking on the red “X” icon. Among those you can see the VIE ones, integrated in o
r-
der to compare results with a pure syn
tactic search like the one provided by Flickr through
the exposed APIs.


During the playback these widgets are triggered with respect to the semantic annotation. The
“trigger” is unobtrusive so the activated widget simply blinks for notification. By click
ing on it a
box sharing the same color of the blinking object is rendered presenting the widget’s output.

The picture below witnesses the semantic connection between the annotated video, the pi
c-
tures retrieved by the VIE Picture widget and the entities beh
ind it.






Figure

Person entity example, linked to the annotated video

The user could also decide to hide/unhide the widget box by clicking on the arrow in the bo
t-
tom right. This could be useful to watch the video avoiding di
stractions.


A landing page has been added too in order to provide the user with the list of the published
videos as well as the possibility to browse them by category. Clicking on a video will result in
playing it back with the Semantic Player.
