Welcome to 'Information Access, Filtering, Analysis and Handling (IAF)'

Knowledge Technologies 2002-2006

Knowledge Technologies in IST-FP6

Knowledge Technologies (KT) is part of the 3,600 Meuros Information Society Technologies thematic priority in the EU's sixth Framework Programme 2002-2006. IST addresses the vision of ambient intelligence, in which "people will be surrounded by intelligent and intuitive interfaces embedded in everyday objects around us and an environment recognising and responding to the presence of individuals in an invisible way..........


Thematic Networks and Accompanying Measures

The overall objective of IAF as set out in the IST Specific Programme is to develop:
"… advanced technologies for the management of information content to empower the user to select, receive and manipulate (in a manner that respects the user’s right to privacy) only the information required when faced with an ever increasing range of heterogeneous sources."

This includes:
"... improvements in the key functionalities of large-scale multimedia asset management systems (including the evolution of the World Wide Web ) to support the cost effective delivery of information services and their usage."

IAF is pursuing these objectives along the following Action Lines:
