  3. 3. How ICTs could really change the world • Peer-to-peer or device-to-device networks • Precise local spatial data embedded in every device and application • Sensor fusion – integration of devices that measure temperature, movement, pressure, acceleration, flow, electrical use, radioactivity, chemical composition • Unique identity systems Source: Gage, 2002 -3 Recent Developments in Information Management, IMC Meeting, 20 October 2005, Paris
  4. 4. “What we find changes who we become” -4 Recent Developments in Information Management, IMC Meeting, 20 October 2005, Paris
  5. 5. Morville on ICTs By integrating a mobile phone and Palm Powered organizer with wireless email, text messaging, and web browsing, the Treo connects me with global communication and information networks. I can make a phone call, send email, check the weather, buy a book, learn about Newport, and find a restaurant for lunch. The whole world is accessible and addressable through this 21st Century looking glass in the palm of my hands.” (p. 1) -5 Recent Developments in Information Management, IMC Meeting, 20 October 2005, Paris
  6. 6. Morville on ICTs (cont’d) We’re creating all sorts of new interfaces and devices to access information, and we’re simultaneously importing tremendous volumes of information about people, places, products, and possessions into our ubiquitous digital networks. (p. 2) -6 Recent Developments in Information Management, IMC Meeting, 20 October 2005, Paris
  7. 7. Morville on ICTs (cont’d) • There’s a company called Ambient Devices that embeds information representation into everyday objects: lights, pens, watches, walls, and wearables.

  9. 9. Morville on ICTs (cont’d) • Delicious Library’s social software turns an iMac and FireWire digital video camera into a multimedia cataloging system.

This sexy, location-aware, peer- to-peer, personal lending library lets you share your collection with friends and neighbors. (p. 3) -9 Recent Developments in Information Management, IMC Meeting, 20 October 2005, Paris
  10. 10. Morville on ICTs (cont’d) • You can buy a watch from Wherify Wireless with an integrated global positioning system (GPS) that locks onto your kid’s wrist, so you can pinpoint his location at any time. A nifty “breadcrumb” feature shows where your child has wandered over the course of several hours. Similar devices are available in amusement parks such as Denmark’s Legoland, so parents can quickly find their lost children. (p. 3) - 10 Recent Developments in Information Management, IMC Meeting, 20 October 2005, Paris
  11. 11. Morville on ICTs (cont’d) • Manufacturers such as Procter & Gamble have already begun inserting radio- frequency identification tags (RFIDs) into products so they can reduce theft and restock shelves more efficiently. These tags continue to function long after products leave the store and enter the home or business. (p. 4) - 11 Recent Developments in Information Management, IMC Meeting, 20 October 2005, Paris
  12. 12. Morville on ICTs (cont’d) • At the Baja Beach Club in Barcelona, patrons can buy drinks and open doors with a wave of their hand, compliments of a syringe-injected, RFID microchip implant. The system knows who you are, where you are, and your exact credit balance. Getting “chipped” is considered a luxury service, available for VIP members only.

  44. 44. Why is it important to increase research impact? 1.5 billion lost annually in potential return on British science • The UK is losing around £1.5 The UK is losing billion (or $2.7 billion) around £1.5 billion annually in the annually in the potential potential impact of its scientific impact of its scientific research expenditure, research expenditure according to one of the key figures in because of the limitations of the global open access publishing movement. Professor the current academic Stevan Harnad, Moderator of the American Scientist Open Access Forum publishing environment. and Professor of Cognitive Science at the University of Southampton's School (Stevan Harnad) of Electronics and Computer Science, has calculated the potential return on the investment in scientific research findings that are being lost to the UK each year through the limitations of the current academic publishing environment.

  70. 70. What can be done? • Watch the developments in ICTs • Provide ubiquitous access to information within RTO (read NATO) through personal, local, regional and international networks using wired/wireless devices, GSMs, laptops, etc. • Create and maintain RTO-wide portal(s) • Provide personalized access to information services through portals • Pay attention to Information Architecture (read usability) issues: “available” does not necessarily mean readily “accessible” • Create effective search mechanisms - 70 Recent Developments in Information Management, IMC Meeting, 20 October 2005, Paris
  71. 71. What can be done? (cont’d) • Increase the “awareness” of OA within the RTO community • Make publicly-funded research results and documentation available to public free of charge • Create “crosswalks” between different metadata schemes used within RTO to improve interoperability and metadata harvesting • Create an RTO-wide institutional repository for unclassified documents and make it harvestable by search engines such as OAIster and Google Scholar • Make OA a mandatory requirement to fund panel activities (if applicable) • Increase the research impact of RTO publications through OA and make them easily “findable” and accessible • And remember: “What we find changes who we become.” - 71 Recent Developments in Information Management, IMC Meeting, 20 October 2005, Paris
