In effect, the proposal provides the foundation for work on a brand new global communications medium for information access and interaction and aims to ensure that Europe is in the best possible position to benefit from this new medium. The project is highly innovative because no such pervasive display networks exist today and their emergence would represent a radical transformation in the way we think about information dissemination in public spaces. ~ fact sheet ~ fact sheet ~ documents & reports ~ web site

PHOCUS aims to design and implement a photonics realization of a liquid state machine (LSM), with the potential for versatile and fast signal handling. It targets to achieve high computational performance with only a small number of photonics components, using dynamical systems with time delay to realize the required high dimensionality for the LSM. While numerical implementations of this concept exist, technical implementations are lacking. The consortium has identified delay-coupled optical systems as ideal substrates for LSMs. They allow achieving complex dynamics and thus the required mapping with only few elements. Moreover, photonic systems have proven to be robust and well-controllable, offering high processing speed and low power consumption. In order to succeed, the consortium intends to realise two different photonic systems to implement the LSM. The photonic implementation will be supported by modelling and theory, and complemented by studies on versatile electronic systems. ~ fact sheet ~ documents & reports ~ web site

QUEVADIS proposal aims to study quantum computation and information processing in a model where information processing is achieved by dissipation or decoherence. The starting point of the proposal is a recent result showing that if system-environment interaction is engineered in a certain very specific way, then universal quantum computation can be achieved simply by letting the system decohere. Using decoherence to compute, rather than being a problem of degradation, is a novel idea, and the proposal promises significant progress beyond state-of-the-art. ~ fact sheet ~ documents & reports ~ web site

ROOTHZ addresses the bottleneck of Terahertz Science and Technology, where the fabrication of room temperature, continuous wave, compact, tunable and powerful sources (at low cost, if possible) is the prime challenge. For this sake, the proposal suggests to exploit THz Gunn oscillations in novel (narrow and wide bandgap) semiconductor nano-devices, which have been predicted by simulations but not experimentally confirmed yet. It aims at the fabrication of solid state emitters and detectors at THz frequencies by exploiting the properties of both wide and narrow bandgap semiconductors and the advantages provided by the use of novel device architectures such as slot-diodes and rectifying nano diodes (nano-channels with broken symmetry so called selfswitching diodes, SSDs). The fabrication of THz detectors will complement this objective and allow the demonstration of a simple THz detection/emission subsystem at the conclusion of the proposal. ~ fact sheet ~ documents & reports ~ web site

SCENIC aims to develop a comprehensive set of methods and analysis tools to enable acoustic systems to model their own characteristics as well as the geometry of the environment in which they operate. This would enable advanced space-time processing solutions based on the system’s characteristics and the environment’s acoustic response. The consortium would develop a general theory that combines acoustic computational geometry with acoustic channel identification in a comprehensive and elegant fashion. It will seek to demonstrate that such modeling can be exploited to push the current boundaries on audio and acoustic processing beyond what is currently possible today. ~ fact sheet ~ documents & reports ~ web site

SEMSEG aims to research a segmentation method for unsteady flow that has the elegance and specificity of (steady) vector field topology, but which provides correct results for unsteady flows as well. Similar to the case of steady flow, where these topological techniques have proven useful for many years, it is expected that the new approach will have an important role in the analysis and discussion of time-dependent flow scenarios. As part of a successful proposed project, concrete algorithms to extract and visualize the topological structures are derived from the new mechanism. Implementations of concrete algorithms to extract and visualize time-varying topological structures will be used to study real-life flow data from different areas of application. ~ fact sheet ~ documents & reports ~ web site

SIEMPRE aims at developing new theoretical frameworks, computational methods and algorithms for the analysis of creative social behavior within small groups of people. Social interaction is one of the fundamental components of human life, widely studied in psychology and receiving a growing interest from ICT scientific communities. The proposal is concerned with synchronization and in particular with emotional synchronization, which is likely to be an important driver of collaborative processes. The research activities will be focused on ensemble musical performance. Experimental scenarios will highlight the subtle and complex social interaction taking place between expert quartet musicians during live musical performance, and during listening to this music by nonexpert audiences. Concrete objectives are models, techniques and algorithms for the extraction of social features based on the analysis of synchronization processes underlying expressive movements, audio and biometric signals during interpersonal creative communication. Objectives will be achieved through real-time, synchronized multi-modal processing, and machine-learning techniques. ~ fact sheet ~ documents & reports ~ web site

TANGO aims to develop an exact mathematical theory of emotional communicative behavior. Many everyday actions take place in a social context and affective information forms an important channel of social communication. TANGO aims to take these two familiar ideas one step further by focusing on the essential interactive nature of social communication, in the domain of non verbal communication based entirely on body language and communicative prosody. The research plan involves the investigation of interactions in real life contexts, showing agents in daily life situations such as communication or navigation. ~ fact sheet ~ documents & reports ~ web site
