Practical Tools to Build the Context Web

[Practical Tools to Build the Context Web]

Perspectives provides the conceptual building blocks for co-operation, laying the groundwork for a federated, fully distributed infrastructure that supports endless varieties of co-operation. The declarative Perspectives Language allows a model to translate instantly in an application that supports multiple users to contribute to a shared process, each with her own unique perspective. The project will extend the existing Alpha version of the reference implementation into a solid Beta, with useful models/apps, aspiring to community adoption to further the growth of applications for citizen end users. Furthermore, necessary services such as a model repository will be provided. This will bring Perspectives out of the lab, and into the field. For users, it will provide support in well-known IDE's for the modelling language, providing syntax colouring, go-to definition and autocomplete.

Real life is an endless affair of interlocking activities. Likewise, Perspectives models of services can overlap and build on common concepts, thus forming a federated conceptual space that allows users to move from one service to another as the need arises in a most natural way. Such an infrastructure functions as a map, promoting discovery, decreasing dependency on explicit search. However, rather than being an on-line information source to be searched, such the traditional Yellow Pages, Perspectives models allow their users (individuals and organisations alike) to interact and deal with each other on-line. Supply-demand matching in specific domains (e.g. local transport) integrates readily with such an infrastructure. Other patterns of integrating search with co-operation support form a promising area for further research.
