  • ••• Internet Science FIRE conference Ghent 15 December 2010 "The views expressed in this presentation are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of the European Commission" (georgios.tselentis, fabrizio.sestini) @ ec.europa.eu New Paradigms and Experimental Facilities European Commission DG Information Society and Media
  • Internet Science: what is it?
    • Disclaimer:
    • I am not an expert in Internet Science!
  • (Internet) Science: what is it?
    • Science - scientist
    • from scientia (latin knowledge)
    • Επιστήμη ( epistími)
    • from ( επί- ἵσταμαι ) = over - stand
  • (Internet) Science: what is it?
    • « …Thus the master craftsmen are superior in wisdom, not because they can do things, but because they possess a theory and know the causes. »
    • « In general the sign of knowledge (or ignorance) is the ability to teach, and for this reason we hold that art* rather than experience is scientific knowledge; for the artists can teach, but the others cannot. »
    • (Aristotle, Metaphysics)
    • *Art = τέχνη ( techni) technology
  • Internet Science and Technology
    • Throughout human history technology often evolved far earlier than the scientific knowledge on which it is based:
    • e.g. We passed from stone/bronze/iron age
    • far in advance before we knew anything about material science
    • But we have also the opposite examples:
    • e.g. atomic bomb
  • Internet Science: what is it?
    • So Internet Science is all about Internet knowledge…(or art!)
    • But what do we really know about Internet?
    • Economic transformation
      • Productivity gains in standard businesses
      • New businesses/SMEs, new advertisement paradigms, energy grids
      • New economic models (skype, google, apple, cloud, …)
    ••• Internet is not just about technology...
  • ••• Internet is not just about technology...
    • Social expansion
      • Ubiquitous access to information (copyrighted or free: wikipedias, googlemaps, ...)
      • Online social networking (Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, ...)
      • Personal expression (Youtube, Flickr, …)
  • ••• Internet is not just about technology...
    • Psychological (and physical !*) change
      • Internet time (affecting workstyles and lifestyles)
      • Globalisation, multilinguality, AR
      • Online Trust
      • *The Shallows. What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains by Nicholas Carr ISBN 978-0393072228
    • the present Internet: was it …
    ••• Two questions…
    • the future Internet: what will it look like?
      • planned?
    or just serendipitous?
  • ••• people/society Individuals/business distributed c entrally controlled Future Internet scenarios (Oxford Internet Institute Study on Technological, Social and Economic aspects of FI) Big Brother : commercial services entertainment (e.g. IPTV) DRM-heavy apolitical Universal Wiki: (user-gen. knowledge) P2P, free content blogs social nets e-democracy
  • Technological and Policy choices have Social and Economic impacts Findings from the MIT workshop Universal Wiki Big Brother Internet infrastructure Current architecture ad hoc/mesh, user driven Vertically integrated specialized nets Technological developments Interoperability Distributed control Generalized wiki NGN or "clean slate“ for streaming Walled gardens Security and Privacy Privacy / identity more than security Online Reputation Strong Security, proprietary Policy Light / no IPR protection Transparency Strong IPR protection Standards Open or Open source standards Multi-cultural supp ort Competing closed standards may prevail National customisation Network Neutrality Key, to enforce Just a burden
  • ••• open standards proprietary systems privacy identity security environmental monitoring sensors/IoT customer control trust/reputation P2P IPR distributed mesh/multi-hop centralised control, clouds People / society Individuals / business end-to-end principle NGN Understanding links between technological issues and socio-economic impacts
    • Why multidisciplinarity?:
      • to understand socio-economic impacts of technology
      • to design networks capable of sustaining positive social developments
    Multidisciplinary approach
    • Towards an “ Internet Science ”
      • An holistic approach based on scientific and humanistic disciplines
        • networking, computing, telecommunications, complex systems, security, trust and identity, privacy, sociology, psychology, energy, user interfaces, law, anthropology, economics, knowledge management, …
      • creating an “ internet scientist ” profile
        • The “ architects ” of the future internet
    Multidisciplinary approach
  • Architecture… ?
  • What competences does an architect need tecnology / infrastructures sociology art policy / economy Life and Social Sciences

    Internet Science - first step
    • NoE = Core of Excellent partners!
    • Effectively involving human sciences
      • Also in the “driving seats” of the multidisciplinary governing/advisory board
      • Not only as researchers but also as institutions
    • Define target application areas
      • e-democracy, energy, environment, modelling, etc.
    towards an NoE in Internet Science - open issues
    • Ensure discipline and EU coverage
      • networking, computing, telecommunications
      • complex systems, game theory, physics
      • software, services, security
      • sociology, ethnology, anthropology, philosophy, ethics
      • trust, privacy, laws, economics, governance
      • psychology, perception, user interfaces, art
      • knowledge management, semantics
    towards an NoE in Internet Science - open issues
    • Types of activities to be supported:
      • Multidisciplinary workshops / publications
      • Schools (in thematic multidisciplinary areas)
      • Researcher exchanges (between different disciplines and sites)
      • Contests / open calls on specific topics
      • Roadmapping, definition of multidisciplinary areas
      • Creation/recognition of new Curricula / Scientist profiles
      • Your ideas …
    towards an NoE in Internet Science
  • Do not forget experimentation! “ An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump” 1768 oil-on-canvas painting by Joseph Wright of Derby
  • Do not forget the experimental dimension!
    • Boyle’s law: pV=k
    • p=pressure
    • V=volume
    • K = constant
    • Robert Boyle 1627-1691
