Verinote internet growth


Published on

We may have 3.4 billion users but creating meaningful points of engagement and maintaining relationships between users and content will be critical. The real challenge is 'relevancy' of content and how that is best achieved and realised by users through personal search agents, linked data and the injection of 'meaning' into content.

There are many barriers to learning but technology should not be one of them and the 'original' vision of the WWW was as a collaborative enviornment where you could read and write.

We need to re-focus effort on automation of processes which provide knowledge that can be discovered and searched. This will empower organisations and indivuduals; creating points of engagement through Applications which engage and retain users by enabling learning from distributed knowledge.

Verinote internet growth

  1. 1. The Internet: growthSince the mid-1990s theinternet has had adramatic impact onculture, commerce andsociety.Brings many benefits toorganisations andindividuals.
  2. 2. Cisco ProjectsInsane Growthin Web-Usersand DataTraffic•1. An Increasing Number of Devices:To quote the report, ”The proliferation of tablets, mobilephones, connected appliances and other smart machinesis driving up the demand for connectivity.By 2015, there will be nearly 15 billion networkconnections via devices — including machine-to-machine — and more than two connections for eachperson on earth.”•2. More Internet users:“By 2015, there will be nearly 3 billion Internet users —more than 40 percent of the world’s projectedpopulation.”•3. Faster broadband speed:“The average fixed broadband speed is expected toincrease four-fold, from 7 megabits per second in 2010 to28 Mbps in 2015.The average broadband speed has already doubledwithin the past year from 3.5 Mbps to 7 Mbps.”•4. More video:“By 2015, 1 million video minutes — the equivalent of674 days — will traverse the Internet every second.”The Internet

  4. 4. The Internet3.4 billion people online by 2016, with nearly 19 billion network-connected devices.Faster broadband speeds that will support greater consumption ofcontent; and much more video content driving demand.How big will the internet be?

  6. 6. Is this evolution or revolution?The internet appears to have no fixed boundaries and isgetting bigger and being used in many different ways.Development of mobile and tablet devices changespatterns of use and expectations of services.Increasing access across diverse applications requiresflexibility and adaptability of content.
  7. 7. Verinote is engaged in R&D with internationalprojects associated with the Apache foundation,to provide tools and services for consumptionand delivery of Linked Data providing semanticenhancement of content, intelligent search andcontent ‘discovery’.We work with a range of partners to develop usefuland relevant use cases for the application ofsemantic enhancements and contentenrichment.Research and Development
  8. 8. Our R&D work directly benefits clients as we identify areasfor innovation and business opportunities.We want to reduce the barriers to accessing knowledge andto support communication through the application oftechnology with OpenSource solutions.Our interest is in the development of Linked Data andPersonal Search Agents as this equips organisationswith the ability to use the internet for rich learning andcollaboration within communities of shared interest.And it is a more efficient use of resources.Why we do it?
  9. 9. • Data management and representation; Design and buildof intelligent-systems driven by Semantic Webtechnologies to create and use Linked Open Data• Content creation, development and publishing viainternet-based services for video, audio, images andother content• Inclusion of legacy data - structured and unstructured• Tools and services for the management and distributionof Linked Data• Distributed learning and knowledge sharing• Automating business processes and intelligence• There are many others…..and considerable scope for collaboration.This creates opportunities
