Reflecting Knowledge Diversity

Project description

Intelligent information management United in diversity RENDER engages with the World Wide Web and its amazing diversity of information, opinions, viewpoints, mind sets and news. RENDER addresses the challenges of purposeful access, processing and management of these sheer amounts of data, whilst leveraging the diversity inherently unfolding through world wide-scale contribution and collaboration on the Web.
Diversity will be leveraged as a crucial source of innovation and creativity, whilst providing enhanced support for feasibly managing data at very large scale, and for designing novel algorithms that reflect diversity in the ways information is selected, ranked, aggregated, presented and used. RENDER’s information management solution shall scale to large amounts of data and hundreds of thousands of users, while reflecting on the plurality of points of views and opinions. This is demonstrated by high-profile case studies under the lead of Wikimedia Germany, Google Ireland and Telefonica I&D applying RENDER over real news, blog and data streams that produce millions of data items per day.
RENDER realizes a world in which information is acquired and shared in a fundamentally different manner than the consensual approach promoted by movements such as Web 2.0, and where communication and collaboration across the borders of social, cultural or professional communities are truly enabled via advanced Web technology, supporting one of the credos of European society: “United in diversity”.
