Bringing Biodiversity into the Future Internet • Enabled biodiversity surveys with advanced ontologies • Analysis, quality assurance and dissemination of biodiversity data 1. Personal Information System for Air Pollutants, allergens and meteorological conditions • Enhance human to environment interaction • Atmospheric conditions and pollution in “the palm of your hand” 1. Collaborative Usage of Marine Data Assets • Assess needs of key marine user communities • Selection of representative marine use cases for further trial: leisure and tourism, ocean energy devices, aquaculture, oil spill alert Copyright © 2013 ENVIROFI Project Consortium 4

  13. 13. Information gained from using of the application… Copyright © 2013 Denis Havlik, AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH. 13 Biodiversity Personal environmental Information Which species are common in my area? What is my current and cumulative exposure? What species is this? Am I allergic to pollen? Sensitive to weather changes? Ozone? … Is it dangerous? Is any of the factors I’m sensitive to likely to occur tomorrow? Is it edible? Will it fall and ruin my car?
  14. 14. Support „learning while doing“ Copyright © 2013 Denis Havlik, AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH. 14 Objective Possible approach How to use the application? Tooltips or popup messages on first use (implemented) Training to recognise objects Scavenger hunt for known and tagged objects Learn to avoid misidentifications control questions & feedback A-posteriori feedback Notify user when more info on the object is available (implemented) Classify data & assess users knowledge Generalized re-capcha principle Other ideas?
  15. 15. “Generalized re-captcha“ example Photos from flickr.com. From left to right by Karl-Ludwig G. Poggemann, abby chicken & Marcy Reiford 15 Question: Which of these photos show maple leafs? (known, maple) (known, oak) (unknown) 1. System mixes known and unknown samples 2. User can choose yes/no/can‘t say for each photo 3. Correlate all answers to: (1) correlate known and unknown samples; and (2) determine users level of knowledge 4. Add feedback for training purposes Copyright © 2013 Denis Havlik, AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH.
  16. 16. 1. The ideas presented today were developed and partially realized as Mobile Data Acquisition System (MDAF) in the scope of the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under Grant Agreement Number 284898 (ENVIROFI) 2.
