TRIDS designed and implemented a solution able
to gather, collate and analyse in real time a large
number of live data streams, linking the live data to
static information sources in order to foster
understanding of unfolding events. Our approach is based
on modelling collective intelligence, i.e. the
combination of personal intelligence (what the single
individuals communicate, e.g. tweets), mass intelligence
(e.g. trends in media), social intelligence (e.g.
group/community opinions) and organisational
intelligence (e.g. official and professional bodies’
(Strategic Investment in Low Carbon Engine
Technology), was a £90m TSB-funded project which is
expected to deliver a substantial improvement in CO2
emissions of jet engines and hence engine fuel economy.
Our group was fully funded by Rolls-Royce to work on
knowledge and information capture during meetings.
IP project started in March 2006. X-Media was
coordinated by the OAK group. With a budget topping
€13m, it is one of the largest projects funded in the
area of IST knowledge and content technologies within
Framework 6 of the European Union. The aim of X-Media
was to create cutting-edge large-scale knowledge
