  • Emme is our personal media management umbrella project, serving as a foundation for specific work like “Event Summarization”, “Composition” and “Storytelling”. Here:

    Event Summarization will take events and large no of associated media and produce a more succinct representation of the same.
    Event structures exist in the database. An event will have some no of subevents. Composition will automatically derive attributes for the root event from the subevents.
    Storytelling is a semi-automatic process, where stories are created out of this event and media collection, and additional human descriptions.

    We will use Asterix/Hyracks for two reasons: First, to store our data (events & media) on multiple machines. Second, for processing (parallel media processing), querying the distributed data collection.

    By personal media, the types of data we are looking at are: Personal Photos, Videos, Emails, Tweets, IM Logs.

    Currently, we have a prototype version running with Photo support only.
  • Lets show three classes in the world – with middle level containing most. The top has 1.5B people covering US, part of Europe, Australia, HongKong, Singapore, and a few percent in other countries. The middle has about 2.5B that is middle class – uses mobile and has corresponding purchasing and social power. The bottom is poor. We want to address the middle. The technology will slowly get to poor.

    We should show icons/photos in this chart corresponding to the above.

    We should have a chart that shows that Singapore is at the heart of World’s Middle class and has great leadership opportunity – economically-socially-politically.
  • We are excited by the 2 ideas ( of the web embracing real world happenings, and the next billion). We feel that we are uniquely positioned to contribute to various areas of its development.
  • Education networks
    parallel college network
    children learning network
    story sharing network
  • Not just a channel for communication and sharing – but a part of life.
