  • 1. How the Social Web Will Impact on Web Search
    • Susanne Koch, Oslo, Norway
    • IPTS Workshop:
    • Socio-Economic Challenges of Search
    • Seville Sept 29-30 2008
    • www.pandia.com
  • 2. How the Social Web Will Impact on Web Search
    • The Social Web is changing web search and the search engine business
    • This change poses challenges and brings opportunities
    • The challenges are the theme for other presentations, I will present the changes and the opportunities they bring
  • 3. User-generated content will influence existing search products
    • Delivering large amounts of user-generated content (of both good and not so good quality)
    • Use of data from Social Web services like bookmarking in identifying and ranking search results
    • The steady stream of tagged or user-generated content can be used for trend analysis
  • 4. Content from the Social Web facilitates online advertising
    • Contextual ads are the bread and butter of the search engine business
    • User-generated content provides space for ads
    • Folksonomies tag and organize user-generated content and thus provide clues for contextual advertising
  • 5. New technologies change the Social Web and search (1)
      • Mobile technologies
        • Growing user base (globally)
        • Increased use by existing users (e.g. iPhone)
        • New capabilities like GPS, geo-tagging and mobile marketing
  • 6. New technologies change the Social Web and search (2)
    • Face and object recognition in image and video search (e.g. Flickr and YouTube)
    • Spoken word recognition in audio search (podcast search, GAudi)
  • 7. New technologies change the way we surf the Web
    • Advanced visual presentation, possible due to standardisation, APIs, broad band and high processing power, will inspire further product innovation and make the social Web easier to use
    • Microformats are tearing down the silos between applications
  • 8. Social Web and personalized search
    • Search results influenced by your RSS subscriptions, your bookmarks and more
    • Cloud computing strengthens this trend
  • 9. Solutions, industry
    • To conquer the global market, relevant language and culture skills must be developed
      • European languages can win local markets, English is the key to global success
      • Including arts, humanities and social sciences in technology development
      • Standards for interoperability between networks (EU initiative?)
    • VC funding for startups and spinoffs
  • 10. Solutions, policy level
    • Innovation policy measures (CIP)
    • Development of relevant ICT clusters
    • Strengthen cultural diversity
    • Focus on data security and consumer privacy to engender trust in the public
    • Revision of the definition of fair use of copyrighted material
  • 11. R&D (Framework Program)
    • Market pull initiaties (especially new services in the area where Web 2.0 and search overlaps)
    • Technology push initiatives (developing a knowledge base for future industry initiatives, Theseus, research based education)
  • 12. Thank you for your attention! Susanne Koch, Pandia.com, [email_address]
