Irish Future Internet Forum Zed Sabeur

  1. 1. The Environmental Observation Web and its Service Applications within the Future Internet Irish Future Internet Forum Conference 2011 Dr Z. A. Sabeur, University of Southampton IT Innovation Centre Kilkenny, Ireland. June 1st 2011 “ENVIROfying” the Future Internet
  2. 2. 2 Contents 1. FI-PPP “The European and global dimensions” 2. FI-PPP programme architecture 3. ENVIROFI project vision 4. ENVIROFI work programme 5. ENVIROFI Consortium 6. ENVIROFI Scenarios 7. The FI stakeholder communities 2
  3. 3. 3 FI-PPP “The European and Global Dimensions” 3 • International Council for Science (ICSU) • Grand Challenges of Global Sustainable Research • The delivery of knowledge and information which are necessary for the world to assess and adapt to global changes in the 21st Century • World climate, finance, economies, societal changes ….. • Europe 2020 Strategy • Smart and sustainable socio-economic growth • Innovation Union of Member States to implement cross-border FI service space • FI Generic and Specific domain enablers • A catalyst of a multi-dimensional growth of Europe’s Digital Economies See ICSU World Data System Conference, Kyoto, 3-6 September 2011 .
  4. 4. 4 FI-PPP Programme architecture (2010-2015) 4
  5. 5. 5 Project Vision(1) 5 • Information and Communication Technology has progressed very fast in the last decade • Environmental sensing is now affordable and has become Web Enabled • Internet, media and social networking are globally used by people • Model-based technologies are successfully addressing systems interoperability • The management of the generated large volume of observation data and information from heterogeneous sources across diverse geographic scales and contexts has now become very challenging. • All of this information should be managed intelligently to make sense to large communities (scientists, the public, industries, research organizations….) • These communities also want to participate and be part in the “FI Living labs for environment”
  6. 6. 6 Project Vision (2) 6 ENVIROFI • Deployment of FI specific enablers in the environmental usage area • The enablers can be deployed on demand for multiple specific environmental applications • The environmental enablers will meet the scalability and resilience challenges • The enablers will be deployed for systems validation in three environmental sectors (Terrestrial, Atmospheric and Marine)
  7. 7. 7 Project Vision (3) 7
  8. 8. 8 Project Vision (4) 1. Heterogeneous sources/large volumes of data handling • Intelligent context-aware information retrieval • Structured generic data fusion and modelling 2. Services interoperability and standards • Multi-Style Service Oriented Architecture • SWE standards for sensor capabilities description 3. Future internet for environment • Internet of things, services, content and people 4. Individualized experimentations • Enabled biodiversity surveys with advanced ontologies • Atmospheric conditions and pollution in “the palm of your hand” • Sustainable Marine Assets in the Future Internet 8
  9. 9. 9 Project work programme 9
  10. 10. 10 Consortium of partners 10
  11. 11. 11 Scenario 1 Bringing Biodiversity into the Future Internet • Biodiversity surveying • Use mobile devises for data entry of Biodiversity occurances • Prototype for: • Scientists • Amateurs/volunteers 11 Future Internet
  12. 12. 12 Scenario 2 Personal Atmospheric Information System 12 • The Information System will provide data directly to the individual via Smartphones • Data will be tailored to the specific user’s need • User tracks the components most relevant to them • Data will be Geo-specific by using the actual coordinates of the user • The user can set threshold alerts when relevant data is over a certain limit • Typical atmospheric components are: • Pollen • UV • PM10 • Temperature • Humidity • Air pressure • NO2 Weather Alert! Quick changes in air pressure can cause headaches.
  13. 13. 13 • Harvest data from heterogeneous sources to develop decision support tools for marine stakeholder communities Scenario 3 Collaborative Usage of Marine Data Assets
  14. 14. 14 FI Stakeholder communities 1. Envirofi encourages the dialogue and consultations with the stakeholder communities from industries, non-governmental organizations, agencies, government authorities and other public organizations. 2. Strong dialogue platform is available in the project and also the overall programme of the FI-PPP 3. ENVIROFI project has an ambitious geographic scaling across Europe and beyond in the years to come 4. 2nd phase trials will be largely participative for the FI usage areas. 5. Large business opportunities for industries in multiple segments of the market sectors. 14
