Say Hello / ICT-FLAME 🔗
Say Hello is the result of DIGI-HI (Digital Companion for Localised Interactions) a project within ICT-FLAME. It is an application for festival attendees for creating and locally sharing mix-media stories using the FLAME infrastructure. Say Hello brings forward a closer integration of location and time, two components that we think are essential for social interaction and community building. In this context, we have tested out our ideas about ephemeral and local social networks and gathered valuable feedback for providing a minimum viable product in this area. What made this project very special was that the entire SayHello app was exclusively deployed in a distributed fashion on the edge network, right on the street, thus having a number of advantages over a more classical cloud-based app. We consider the deployment of 5G technologies as an enabler for such kind of social networks and a unique opportunity that will divert the attention from global centralised platforms to open, private, local, ad-hoc communities.
EMMA - Content Management and Storytelling for the Social World 🔗
The new EMMA innovation platform, partially funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, creates new opportunities to redefine interactive storytelling and content marketing to better connect and engage with audiences through more compelling content and experiences. The EMMA platform allows touristic destinations and event organisers in Europe to seize the opportunities offered by the latest solutions in ICT content technologies, social media and information management.
IN2 coordinates the EMMA project and works closely with Fondazione Sistema Toscana, who are managing the online tourism area for the popular region of Tuscany, and with the Frankfurter Buchmesse, the biggest trade fair of the international publishing industry.
StoM - Semantic Technology at your service 🔗
In StoM we develop EventPlace, the solution on top of semantic technology services that allows event and destination managers who want to organise their event content (e.g. presentations, video recordings, video promotions, documents) and combine it with user-generated content (for example photos and videos from participants, sharing impressions of the surroundings) for an engaging experience for everyone.
