VIP-ACCESS - Ubiquitous Web Access for Visually Impaired People


Description: Visually impaired people are info-excluded due to the overwhelming task they face to read information on the web. Indeed, unlike fully capacitated people, blind people can not read information by just scanning it quickly i.e. they can not read in the “diagonal”. As a consequence, they have to come through all sentences of web pages to understand if a document is interesting or not. This is obviously an overwhelming task which clearly excludes visually impaired people to quick access to information. Although a lot has been done for blind people to access information with braille screens, braille keyboards, braille PDAs andText-to-Speech interfaces, very little has been made to reduce the amount of information they have to deal with. For that purpose, we aim at proposing new human-computer interfaces that run on classical devices such as classical PCs, Pocket PCs or PDAs. As a consequence, blind people may have access to affordable technology. In particular, we aim at developing a wide range of technological solutions so that visually impaired people can take advantage of the new ubiquitous technologies that are fast growing in our every day lives.

Site-o-Matic: Web Automation and Adaptative Web


Description: The Web currently poses a number of interesting research problems. From the User’s point of view, the Web is becoming too large, too dynamic and increasingly unknown. From the Editor’s point of view, the Web is a constant demand for new information and timely updates. Moreover, the Editor should not only maintain the contents of the site, but also permanently choose the site’s navigational structure that best helps achieving the aims of the site’s Owner, User, or both. From the Owner’s point of view the need for such a constant labour intensive effort implies very high financial or personal costs. In this project we aim to develop a platform and a methodology for automating, as much as possible, the management activities of a Web site, taking into account the behaviour of the Users, and the aims of the Owner. One of the effects of automation is the reduction of the Editor’s effort, and consequently of the costs for the Owner. The other effect is that the site can more timely adapt to the behaviour of the User, improving the browsing experience and helping the user in achieving his/her own goals when these are in accordance to the goals of the Owner of the site.

FOUREYES – Intelligence, Interaction, Immersion and Innovation for Media Industries


Description: FourEyes aims to make critical and tangible advances in the digital media sector, the scientific community and in media‐related application areas or markets, by promoting the sharing of knowledge among researchers with different backgrounds. It will provide the means for scientific, creative and industrial communities to understand how new forms of multimedia content in a symbiotic relation with intelligent processing can improve our way of life and can be used to produce innovation. It is widely understood that interactive media plays an ever more important role not only in the cultural industry, but in almost all aspects of socioeconomic life, gaining each day through increased pervasiveness. Virtual and immersive environments with the ability to engage multiple senses are also emerging. FourEyes will investigate and develop a comprehensive set of methodologies and algorithms that will foster the creation of enhanced multimedia applications with realistic and dynamic immersion, interaction and participatory capabilities. Such applications can provide added value in different domains, notably those of culture, tourism, broadcasting and the content producing industry in general.
