Cloud4all is an EC-funded project from the 7th Framework Programme. Cloud4all aims to develop a complete new paradigm in accessibility by augmenting adaptation of individual products and services for a person (2nd generation) with automatic personalization of any mainstream product or service a user encounters using cloud technologies to activate and augment any natural (built-in) accessibility or installed access features the product or service has (3rd generation), based on the user's needs and preferences. This presentation provides an overview of the different technical components that comprise the overall Cloud4all / GPII architecture.

Cloud4all technical overview

  1. 1. Cloud platforms Lead to Open and Universal access for people with Disabilities and for All www.cloud4all.info Cloud4all Technical Overview Gregg Vanderheiden Ph.D. Raising the Floor – International
  2. 2. Cloud4all Objectives 1. To test the concept of Auto-Personalization from Preferences • Does it work – for users – and across technologies • Can it be built in a scalable fashion 1. To build the first draft of essential GPII components • • • • • The Overall Architecture and run time components The Semantic components (Ontologies, et al) The Basic Data Sets required ( Registries and Databases ) The Data Maintenance and User Tools The Standards 1. To create demonstration/test implementations • Across technologies (Windows, Linux, Android etc) • Across Application domains (PCs, Mobile, Web, Closed, Appliances, etc) 2
