  • 1- They are both consolidate, in the massive use of 3D digital resources, and emerging. 2- They face a huge amount of available 3D data (think for instance of CAT data for computer aided diagnostics and acquisitions of archaeological artefacts). 3- Their use is not only related to visual aspects and rendering processes, they require complete knowledge representations to exploit and preserve both the expertise used for their creation and the information content carried 4- They are willing to learn new approaches to engage with the 3D data deluge they are experiencing and to speed up the achievements of new results

  • FO ster the C omprehension and US e of K nowledge intensive technologies for coding and sharing 3D media content Coordinator: Bianca Falcidieno CNR IMATI Genova Italy FP7-ICT-2007-1 Contract n° 214993 Coordination Action in the area of semantic coding of 3D media content 8 Partners Starting date: 1° March 2008 Duration: 2 years
  • Team
    • Increasing impact of 3D content
    • Fast evolution of 3D technologies
    • Growing number and typology of content providers/users
      • media professionals
      • enterprise designers
      • publishers/dealers
      • scientists
      • talented amateurs
    • Growing interest of EU (FP6 projects: AIM@SHAPE, SALERO, 3DTV, and FP7 new projects: i3Dpost,…)
    Motivations
  • Application fields Medicine & Bioinformatics CAD/CAE & Virtual Product Modelling Gaming & Simulation Archaeology & Cultural Heritage
  • FOCUS K3D goals
    • Requirements of the user communities
      • how and why they create and process 3D content
      • how they deal with 3D content knowledge
    • Current practices and analysis of the needs for advanced 3D content modelling and processing
      • building up on previous FP6 R&D, evaluate how usable/useful semantics-oriented techniques can be in the different applied domains
      • what kind of services users need to handle the 3D knowledge workflow pipeline
    • Research roadmaps
      • which research problems are still open in 3D content and knowledge modelling and processing
      • how to personalise solutions in the application domains
    • Openness to a larger audience
    • Methodological Working Group (MWG)
      • To set up ad hoc strategies for a profitable collaboration
      • with the different communities
    • Application Working Groups (AWGs)
      • User’s communities, one for each application area
      • To better organise and customise the dissemination activities according to the needs of the specific fields
    Strategy
  • 4 Application Working Groups
    • AWG Archaeology and Cultural Heritage headed by CERETETH
    • AWG Medicine and Bioinformatics headed by INRIA
    • AWG CAD/CAE & Virtual Product Modelling headed by Fraunhofer IGD
    • AWG Gaming and Simulation Motivation headed by University Utrecht
  • AWG Archaeology and Cultural Heritage
    • The Archaeology and Cultural Heritage domain is characterized by an increasing volume of 3D digital content
    • 3D models and virtual spaces have huge potential for enhancing the way people interact with museum collections and structured e-learning environments.
    • However, 3D content is often hard to access and is kept in multiple internal systems with non-standard schemas and descriptions.
  • Benefits of 3D Semantic Modelling
    • interactions with precious artifacts without risk of damage
    • provide documentation in case of loss or damage
    • can be efficiently employed for educational purposes, such as virtual museums/exhibits, virtual tourism and 3D visualization of city buildings and monuments.
    AWG Archaelogy and CH - AWG Medicine and Bioinformatics - AWG CAD/CAE - AWG Gaming and Simulation
  • Digital lifecycle benefits (I)
    • Considering all the steps of the digital lifecycle that a resource could undergo, a domain expert can be guided in the se phases and supported by a technological platform for performing the single steps of :
      • data acquisition (3D scanning, registration, and merging)
      • archiving & retrieval (classification of data, storage of 3D content and metadata, and retrieval of data from a repository)
    AWG Archaelogy and CH - AWG Medicine and Bioinformatics - AWG CAD/CAE - AWG Gaming and Simulation
  • Digital lifecycle benefits (II)
      • virtual presentation (level-of-detail-driven simplification, association of material properties, texturing and viewing) ;
      • virtual reconstruction & restoration (composition/ assembly of parts, data conversion, modification/deformation of models and morphing between two different objects);
      • prototyping & replication (fairing, generation of a uniform polygonal mesh);
      • deformation monitoring (comparison of geometric deviation of artefacts or buildings over time).
    AWG Archaelogy and CH - AWG Medicine and Bioinformatics - AWG CAD/CAE - AWG Gaming and Simulation
  • Open problems (I)
    • A large part of the European cultural heritage exists in digital collections (e.g. virtual museums, digital libraries, scientific repositories) , which are becoming more and more demanding in terms of management, preservation and delivery mechanisms.
    AWG Archaelogy and CH - AWG Medicine and Bioinformatics - AWG CAD/CAE - AWG Gaming and Simulation
  • Open problems (II)
    • Three -dimensional (3D) content is expected to become predominant (e.g., digitised statues, historical buildings, archaeological items etc) , however,
      • is still in its infancy
      • stakeholders are making little use of it.
    • The unavoidable manual annotation of explicit semantics cannot be considered a practical approach, especially when the number of resources is expected to grow fast.
    AWG Archaelogy and CH - AWG Medicine and Bioinformatics - AWG CAD/CAE - AWG Gaming and Simulation
  • Open problems (III)
    • Users would like to perform content- and context-based (semantic) queries to retrieve 3D models or other detailed documentation, using as query text, 3D objects, ontology classifications or the combination of the above.
    AWG Archaelogy and CH - AWG Medicine and Bioinformatics - AWG CAD/CAE - AWG Gaming and Simulation
  • Open problems (IV)
    • Other needs of the community can be summarized as follows:
      • to maintain an up-to-date overview of the already existing resources (i.e., what has been already done in terms of models, tools, benchmarks);
      • to use/share in a simple way the scientific heritage;
      • partial matching and reconstruction of missing pieces
    AWG Archaelogy and CH - AWG Medicine and Bioinformatics - AWG CAD/CAE - AWG Gaming and Simulation
  • Identification of requirements (I)
    • The Archeology/Cultural Heritage domain is in need of very easy to use and understand tools that will allow them to:
      • Digitize objects of cultural/archeological interest
      • Measure deterioration of monuments
      • Digital reconstruct the monuments and objects with less effort
      • Present the digital monuments and objects to public easily and efficiently by using the principles of museology and human-machine interactivity.
      • Mine rapidly and efficiently 3D shapes from large databases.
    AWG Archaelogy and CH - AWG Medicine and Bioinformatics - AWG CAD/CAE - AWG Gaming and Simulation
  • Identification of requirements (II)
      • Retrieve and compare methodologies for using equipment correctly (3D scanners, cameras, scanners, etc.)
      • Find examples of good and bad digitization to compare the results
      • Find, download, test and finally use methods and tools for automatically constructing 3D objects using as input the results of methods like X-rays etc
      • Find evaluation reports for every tool and shape in the repository
      • Use advanced shape recognition tools for characterizing 3D objects and extrude metadata automatically
      • Assemble suggested workflows by using natural language to describe the job that is to be done.
