Passed Paddy and Simon in corridor! 02 Dec 2008

Also, met Paddy and Simon in the corridor and asked them to take a look at my idea for my PhD Transfer Symposium Talk, they seemed to think it’s a workable idea, and I need to work it up into a presentation.

I mentioned that I would have liked to have read more around the subject, and I will do, but Paddy said that its more important that I show what I have read, for example, alot about context aware systems, that fits into this idea – as it is context-aware routing.

Also showed paddy my ideas for short term research projects, and he thinks the WaveLAN one might be interesting.

We talked about a number of things, and whilst we didn’t have conclusions, we came up with some thing to think about:

  • Mobile / Lighweight
  • Multiple Distribution protocols / modules
  • Multiple inferencing modules
  • Justification for te RDF models we use
  • Construct Need and end goal
  • It needs an Application Showcase to show off to potential users / developers
