WHO CONSIDERS INTERNET AS THE 2 BEST INSTRUMENT?PORN INDUSTRY ON-LINE GAMES MASS MEDIA
3Are the universities, business andgovernment able to come up withorder forDevelopment of the internet asan instrument for building theinnovation ecosystem?
& 4• Have you ever surfed not less than 10 links in order to get an answer to any question about innovations?• Have you ever wanted to make this search more effective?• If it is so annoying… Is it possible to make Internet better for searching information about innovation ecosystem?• Are we really interested in using the Internet for innovation ecosystem development?
We tried to answer these questions in Tomsk region – 5 one of the 10 innovation regions in Russia 6 universities in Tomsk, every 5th citizen is a student 500 000 people live in Tomsk 36% of Tomsk population is people with higher education 1st regional law about innovation activity in Russia (1998) 1st regional innovation strategy in Russia (2002) 14-year experience of Innovation Forum organizing36 web-sites, developed from 2002 till 2010, contain information about innovations,30 of them were funded by the regional government. Each site is managed bydepartment with its own organisational culture, business processes and policy criteria.
THE AIM OF PRESENTATION 6To get feedback about the taskrecognition on using the Internetas an effective instrument forinnovation ecosystemdevelopment
CONTENT 7• Task and project discussion with the regional government• Monitoring and analysis results of web services and web portals about innovations worldwide. Defining pros and cons• Ideas about the technologies, which can help solve the task
8 The project« Creating the web infrastructure of regionalinnovation ecosystem »

Monitoring of web services and web portals about 10innovations worldwide 171
ANALYSIS RESULTS: TYPES OF WEB SERVICES AND WEB PORTALS ABOUT INNOVATIONS WORLDWIDE (PROS) 11 INFORMATION PORTALS RESOURCE PORTALS (TECHNOLOGY INFORMATION PORTALS SUPPORT & LABORATORY SERVICES)Description and links to services, interactive Services necessary to do order the materials,world partners map, searching for partners, equipment, different analysis, services to sciencecompanies map, documents, calendar institutes, trainings how to work on special«Dresden-concept», «Bio-M» – Germany; «Innovation equipment, calculations, plotting, technicalNorway»; Sophia Antipolis – France; «A-STAR» – controlSingapore; Biotech portal – Hong Kong; Innopolis Resource portal, Biopolis Shared Facilities, ComputationalDaedeok; Innovation district – Boston; Kansai Science City, recourse center – Singapore; Hong Kong Science parkYokosuka Research Park – Japan; Z-park – China;MATIMOP – Israel TALENT PLATFORM STARTUPS AND INVESTORS NETWORKSAttracting the best scientists and developers, data Data base of applications in finding the funding,base of professionals who solve the company’s expertise, data base of venture investors, socialproblems in science and technology, national data network, blogbase of researchers (scientists’ profiles), plan of «Innovation Israel.

ANALYSIS RESULTS: CONS 12- Search for necessary information about innovation ecosystem still takes much time- Information about innovation ecosystem is fragmented from a user perspective- Users still don’t know which of the web sites they can trust and which they can’t- Web sites and services are fragmented and not integrated into a single Web Infrastructure

SOME EXAMPLES OF SEMANTIC WEB PROJECTS 15 FinnONTO (National Semantic Web Ontology Project of FINLAND) 2003-2012 which aims to «lay a foundation for a national metadata, ontology, and ontology service framework in Finland, and demonstrate its usefulness in practical applications. In our vision, a conceptual semantic infrastructure is needed for the semantic web in the same way as roads are needed for traffic and transportation, power plants and electrical networks are needed for energy supply, or GSM standards and networks are needed for mobile phones and wireless communication». Semantic Computing Research Group (SeCo) Theseus (GERMAN government project) 2007-2012 which aims to utilise «new, internet-based methods of acquiring, seeking and processing knowledge» to «improve the competitive position of Germany and of Europe as a whole, with a view to ultimately becoming one of the world’s leading locations for information and communication technology». Siemens, SAP, Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications Semantic Transformations (AUSTRALIA) 2005-2010 This research sought to gain an in-depth understanding of the development and utilisation of «semantic technologies» and their long history of research and development. It gave us insights into the impact of semantic technologies on the creation and consumption of digitally published «documents» and information across the world wide web. ARC Linkage Grant in partnership with Fuji Xerox Australia and RMIT University
+ SEMANTIC WEB TECHNOLOGIES… 16…are based on building Ontology and Knowledge Graph.If they are built correctly:- information is analyzed, classified- information from different web sources is integrated- connection between different types of data is established«Shooting the target» (quick access to theinformation, that is really useful for a user)
A PART OF KNOWLEDGE GRAPH OF TOMSK REGION INNOVATION ECOSYSTEM 17
CONCLUSIONS 18- The goal of using the Internet as an effective instrument of innovation ecosystem was recognized by the regional government.- Web sites devoted to innovations worldwide have been developed in different areas. They have both pros and cons and are not effective enough for web infrastructure development.- Semantic technologies are used in the world, they are effective and help create common vision of the industry, services sector, etc. They are used in eHealth, eCulture, etc., but they are not used in innovation ecosystem development.- Knowledge Graph is supposed to be jointly built by universities, business and government as essential stage in the Web infrastructure development. The question is: How can we attract universities and innovative businesses to this project?
