Mauri Kaipainen (FI) - Multi-perspective media

Prague - March 1, 2012

Mauri Kaipainen presents his current research agenda focuses on the concept of explorable multi-perspective media, based on ontospaces, spatially defined ontologies.

Mauri Kaipainen, a professor of media technology at Södertörn University in Sweden presents his current research area of explorable multi-perspective media. As he says, with multi-perspective media you get the space and you can take a look from different angles instead of getting some particular presentation of issue. Then he explains the concept of ontospaces and ontospace conceptualization, which has a range of applications in media art, community and collaborative media applications, generative narrative systems and learning environments with collaborative knowledge building and so on.

What I call ontospaces is behind the media. It means that instead of tags, there are coordinates, there is a space defined by meta data dimensions and each content element is tagged by the coordinates.

At the conclusion, he mentions SparX project, which is closely related to this research.
