This refers to sharing concepts on a digital collaboration environment to encourage and facilitate new and innovative "brainstorming" processes. In here new concepts may emerge due to the contributions of individuals, professional or otherwise who are able to share their ideas, as it is not limited to professionals, but rather the general public who wishes to become involved through this collaboration and social dissemination fashion which is only possible using the web.
The focus is to understand the nature and behaviour of dynamic media objects, their life cycle, and related privacy and trust issues through mobile access to- and collective interaction on Web-based platforms.
This aims at developing advanced, secure and trustworthy services that can help companies to improve the flow of information as well as to adjust their structure and organisation to remain competitive in a mobile and dynamic Web environment.
SoFWIReD – A joint venture to shape the future of the Web
University of Southampton in the UK and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in Germany work together in a collaborative venture in Web and Internet Science.
The SoFWIReD project is developing innovative solutions for data and knowledge driven processing of open data and investigates aspects of collective intelligence. The insights generated in the project will form the basis for supporting companies in the collective intelligence transition by consulting, organisational development and software engineering.
