INKASS Sintesi della relazione

Project ID: IST-2001-33373
Finanziato nell'ambito di: FP5-IST

TWI knowledge marketplace

The proposed use of INKASS at TWI will be to enhance sharing of TWI’s information and knowledge among its global network of customers. Specifically, INKASS could be used to launch a new product for TWI, namely expert-mediated information packages.

This would comprise:
- Use of the INKASS ontology and CBR searching to match the right information to the user’s query specification.

- Use of the INKASS workflows to allow online interaction between the customer and relevant TWI expert(s), where the web content found during the search phase is analysed and interpreted in the context of the customer’s usage situation.

- The web content and the expert analysis is combined to produce a saleable exper-mediated information package and the INKASS transaction handling/contracting functionality would be used to effect the sale of the package.

Expert-mediated information packages are seen as more value-added and therefore attractive to customers than a straight sale of content on a pay-per-view basis.
