It is possible to register only for thissession.Industry Sessions :See the call for paper : here 1Access to the subm ission Sy stem : here 2Panel :The paper speakers will be inv ited to par ticipate in a panel.Invited Talks :* Jean-Luc Dormoy – Yello Strom – Germany“Foreseeable trends in the development of a society of humans and agent”* François Pouilloux – Ixxo – France“Extracting named entities at web scale for competitive intelligence”Jean-Luc Dormoy“Foreseeable t rends in t he development of a societ y of humans and agent ”Dr. Jean-Luc Dor m oy is curr ently engaged in the cr eation of a new com pany deliv ering digital products andserv ices for personal use at hom e.Until recently , Jean-Luc Dorm oy was based in Yello Strom in Cologne, where hewas in charge for the EDF Gr oup of the European Pr ogram m e on Hom e Technology and Sm art Metering, or «Sm artGrid on the custom er side».. During his two y ears in this position, Jean-Luc Dorm oy has uncov ered the activ ities inFrance – EDF SA – the UK – EDF Energy – and Germ any – EnBW and Yello Strom . He was instrum ental in projectssuch as the Yello Sparzähler, which is a sm art m eter sold to custom ers, and inthe launch and funding of nation widesm art grid projects in France and the UK.Form erly , Dr Jean-Luc Dorm oy was in charge of Program m e Strategy forSoftware and Silicon Architectures at CEA-DRT, from 2 003 to 2 008. CEA-DRT is a technological research ensem blewith about 3 ,000 researchers and 4 ,000 staff with three units: LETI (m icr o and nano technology ), LIST (softwareintensiv e sy stem s), and LITEN (new energy technology ).There, Dr Dorm oy contributed to the creation and was am em ber of the Board of the ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking on Em bedded Sy stem s, a 2 .5 billion € PPP between theEuropean Com m ission, 2 0 EU states, and industry and research. Dr Dorm oy has been part at m anagem ent lev el ofm ajor industry and research initiativ es in France and in Europe: poles de com pétitiv ité MINALOGIC andSYSTEM@TIC, National Research Agency in France, ITEA2 Third Roadm ap on Softwar e-Intensiv e Sy stem s.Jean-Luc Dorm oy is a founder of the Kalray com pany , which is up to put on the m arket a m any core chip together with itsparallel program m ing env ironm ent. Form erly , Dr Dorm oy worked at EDF R&D as a research engineer, projectm anager, and adv isor for software technology . Dr Dorm oy was trained as a m athem atician at the Ecole Norm aleSupérieure de Saint Cloud, and has a PhD in Artificial Intelligence. He is the author of about 40 rev iewed scientificpapers.Abst ract : In this talk, we intend to giv e a social and hum an v ision of the future of IT from our experiencein innov ativ e industrial dev elopm ent and B2 B and B2 C m arkets. The starting point is to analy ze how theIT industry has been dev eloping since its inception, and how it has em bedded deeply into the hum an society . From
  2. 2. this, we can distinguish a num ber of patterns on its v arious facets: sociological, econom ical, technological. We’llshow in particular how serv ices tend to belong to three different kinds, Me, Group and Society . We shall show thatthis im pacts existing organizations and sy stem s, and push to rebuild them in a «bottom up» fashion, with theindiv idual user at its center. This user has to be helped by a num ber of Me serv ices. In turn, these serv ices, if theyare able to fulfill a num ber of conditions, participate on their own to the global society , both on the real and v ir tualsides. They can group in Group serv ices, which are defined by a num ber of rules of ownership and behav ior. Andthey can ev entually fulfill Society lev el serv ices, deliv ered on a par to all the – hum an – agents.We shall illustratein exam ples how this has started to happen in v arious applicativ e dom ains such as the electric v ehicle and m oregenerally transportation, or energy production, deliv ery and consum ption. We shall also focus on technologicalconditions that digital agents m ust fulfill to enable this ev olution, which can be grouped in 3 categories: autonom y ,content m anagem ent, and interaction with the phy sical world and hum ans. From this «m arket and industry totechnology » journey , it will be up to the audience to m ake the rev erse trip in the following discussion.François Pouilloux“Ext ract ing named ent it ies at web scale for compet it ive int elligence”François Pouilloux is currently the Chief Technology Officer and a cofounder of Ixxo, a French SME based near Ly on,prov iding web m ining and online com petitiv e intelligence solutions that quickly and efficiently turns web searchinto actionable business inform ation. Since the inception of Ixxo in 2 002 , François has been prov iding technologicalinsight for Ixxo products and serv ices, and is now focused on dev eloping and m anaging internal R&D projects andacadem ic collaborations. He is an activ e m em ber of the industr y group in the Web Intelligence Rhône-Alpes pr oject,an initiativ e launched by a consortium of Web Intelligence researchers from local academ ic institutions andsupported by public funding from the Region Rhône-Alpes, whose goal is to establish locally an integrated,m ultidisciplinary , and European leading research com m unity in the area of Web Intelligence. Form erly , Françoiswas a software architect and expert at Lotus Software and Unilog, where he acquired a 2 0 y ears gr ound experiencedeliv ering com plex sy stem s in v arious sectors with international team s. He was trained as an engineer at theGrenoble Institute of Technology , where he got a Master of Science in Industrial Process Design and MaterialsScience.Abst ract : Businesses of all sizes hav e now realized that the Web is an inv aluable resource for com petitiv eintelligence, and consequently business decision m aking. But m any hav e trouble collecting targeted & usefulinform ation, and are often further ov erwhelm ed by the tim e required for analy sis & m onitoring. On another hand,text m ining techniques hav e becom e widely used for inform ation analy sis in the scientific com m unity in general,and are now ubiquitous in m ost Web Intelligence fields. With the av ailability of serv ices such as Google PredictionAPI, or m ature open source software such as GATE, RapidMiner or NLTK, one can expect a m uch wider adoption oftext m ining and associated m achine learning techniques by expert dev elopers. But how can these techniques benefitto the daily life of a wider business audience? As com petitiv e intelligence is often focused on products, people,custom ers and com petitors, there is an added v alue for sy stem s prov iding analy tics on these entities, whoserecognition is fundam ental to text m ining and sem antic analy sis, and consequently is still under activ e scientificinv estigation. In this talk we will tour som e of the specific requirem ents and options for building an efficient Webbased com petitiv e intelligence sy stem with nam ed entity analy tics. We will see how som e sav v y sim plifications canhelp to ov ercom e com m on issues such as Web scale and Web content noise, and finally deliv er acceptable usabilityand v alue for non-specialists, business users.References 1. ^ here ( ) 2. ^ here ( )
