  • SAPERE: Self‐aware Pervasive  Service Ecosystems Franco Zambonelli Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia STREP – 3 years www.sapere‐ www sapere‐project eu AWARE Meeting ‐ December 14, 2010 1
  • The Consortium The Consortium• Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia – Franco Zambonelli & Marco Mamei Franco Zambonelli & Marco Mamei• Birkbeck College University of London – Giovanna Di Marzo Serugendo Giovanna Di Marzo• Alma Mater Studiorum – Università di Bologna – Mirko Viroli & Andrea Omicini• St. Andrews University – Simon Dobson• Johannes Kepler Universitaet Linz p – Alois Ferscha AWARE Meeting ‐ December 14, 2010 2
  • The Scenario The Scenario• Pervasive computing – Sensor rich and always connected smart phones  – Sensor networks and information tags – Localization and activity recognition – Internet of things and the real‐time Web Internet of things and the real time Web• Innovative pervasive services arising – Situation‐aware adaptation Situation aware adaptation  – Interactive reality  – Pervasive collective intelligence and pervasive participation• Open co‐production scenario, very dynamic, diverse  needs and diverse services, continuously evolving AWARE Meeting ‐ December 14, 2010 3
  • The Overall Objective The Overall Objective• Develop and demonstrate a highly‐innovative  theoretical and practical framework for pervasive  service ecosystems service ecosystems – Adaptivity and self‐management as inherent properties of  the ecosystem y – Systemic self‐awareness as an observable property of the  overall system – Long lasting (eternal) adaptivity Long‐lasting (eternal) adaptivity – Bio‐chemical inspiration• Foundational re‐thinking of Foundational re thinking of – Service architectures and associated middleware – Self‐* algorithms and contextual knowledge management AWARE Meeting ‐ December 14, 2010 4
  • The Architectural Approach The Architectural Approach• Open production model• Smooth data/services  distinction – LSA  live semantic  annotations• Interactions Interactions   – Sorts of bio‐chemical reactions  among components – In a spatial substrate In a spatial substrate• Eco‐laws  – Rule all interactions – Discovery + orchestration + orchestration  seamlessly merged• Built over a pervasive network  world AWARE Meeting ‐ December 14, 2010 5
  • Specific Objectives Specific Objectives• Both of a scientific and technological nature• Around which the various WPs are organized AWARE Meeting ‐ December 14, 2010 6
  • Model, Structures, and Knowledge Model Structures and Knowledge• M d l & M th d l Model & Methodology – Innovative chemical‐inspired semantic model for interactions among  components and their dynamic composition/aggregation – S Semantic (LSA) description and semantic pattern‐ mathing ti (LSA) d i ti d ti tt thi – Uniform traitment of data and services – Methodological guidelines associated• Structures & Space – Model distributed self‐* algorithms via the chemical LSA framework – Innovative flexible means for aggregation and composition gg g p – Define decentralized means to control the behaviour of the ecosystem• Knowledge & Time – Distributed knowledge management algorithms via the LSA framework Distributed knowledge management algorithms via the LSA framework – Define new means to perform distributed recognition of current situations – As well as to enable recognition of future situations AWARE Meeting ‐ December 14, 2010 7
  • Key Challenges y g for model, structure and knowledge• C Can our chemically‐inspired computation model and the  h i ll i i d t ti d l d th eco‐laws? – Be flexible and general‐purpose enough? g p p g – Effectively deal with the complexity and diversity of modern pervasive scenarios? – Be effectively implementable? Be effectively• And, for structure and knowledge – Can it accommodate all needed distributed aggregation and  self‐composition algorthims lf iti l thi – Can it express all needed forms of knowledge management?• Or should we rather go for application‐specific (or location‐ Or should go for application specific (or location specific) eco‐laws? AWARE Meeting ‐ December 14, 2010 8
  • Infrastructure and Applications Infrastructure and Applications• I f t t Infrastructure – A very lightweight infrastructure – Ruling all interactions (from discovery to data exchange and  synchronization) by embedding the concept of eco‐laws h i ti ) b b ddi th t f l – To most extent, acting as a recommendation and planning engine – Possibly inspired by tuple space coordination models – Yet made it more “fluid” and suitable for a pervasive computing  continuum substrate  not a network but a continuum of tuple spaces• Applications – The “Ecosystem of Display” as a general and impactful testbed – To put at work and demonstrate the SAPERE findings p g – Active and dynamic information sharing in urban scenarios – Active participation of citizens to the working of the urban infrastructure AWARE Meeting ‐ December 14, 2010 9
  • Key Tangible Results y g (hopefully)• A novel model and methodology to support the development  of complex service systems in open and dynamic pervasive  scenarios• A uniform set of: – Self‐* algorithms for service/data composition and aggregation (in  the form of libraries) th f f lib i ) – Algorithms and tools for distributed management of contextual‐ knowledge, to enforce present‐ and future‐awareness in the  ecosystem• A novel middleware for pervasive computing scenarios (Open  Source) ) – Integrating the stated algorithms in the form of libraries• A set of released innovative application showcased on the  Ecosystem of Displays testbed  E t f Di l t tb d AWARE Meeting ‐ December 14, 2010 10
