A semantic-based knowledge flow system for the European home textiles industry

Objective

The overall aim of AsIsKnown is to develop a showcase for an integrated knowledge and content flow system between customer, trade facilities and producers through semantically-enabled Knowledge Technologies. This showcase will be exemplified by the home textiles industry. Therefore AsIsKnown will create a common knowledge base for the European home textiles industry that allows knowledge to be shared and (re)used across multimedia applications by developing semantic-based collaboration services: the Smart Profiler and the Trend Analyser. These semantic-based collaboration services will enable trend-related industries like the home textiles industry to bring jointly harmonised trend lines on the market by providing a base for a joint decision support and collaborative use of trusted knowledge between different organisations. The main scientific and technological objectives of the semantic-based knowledge flow system for the European home textiles industry are to: ** develop a prototype of the Smart Profiler which integrates data(bases) across organisations of the home textiles industry to create semantically unified style directions resp. online-catalogues of heterogeneous suppliers and vendors within a collaborative working environment; ** develop a prototype of the Trend Analyser which builds upon existing standards as well as on prototype knowledge content models developed for semantic annotation of multimedia content and for trading knowledge units; ** develop a web-based Virtual Interior Design tool as front-end application for the semantic "back-office" services Smart Profiler and Trend Analyser; ** define a common-sense ontology and a multimedia ontology to build up a shared knowledge base for the European home textiles industry as key enablers for the semantic web services Smart Profiler and Trend Analyser; and ** build a decision support-system for inferencing and reasoning across organisations of the European home textiles industry.
