AIM 08/09 Start-Up Meeting
Last Thursday, David, Lisha, Teresa and me went to Devonport Hotel at Greenwich to attend the AIM 08/09 Start-Up meeting, which is the first time of meeting with our program manager, Chris, after the eCert project kicked off. There are nine projects funded by the Access and Identity Management 08/09 Call, and our team is the first one who made the presentation in the meeting (probably due to the alphabetic order of the project name). Please see a couple of “unclear” pictures from my iPhone.
One of the projects that really interests me is Identity & Access Management using Social Networking Technologies, in which they are going to use semantic web technologies (RDF, FOAF) and traditional security technologies (e.g. public key, SSL) to help identity and access management. Based on my previous experience, I do not think using semantic web technologies will make a huge progress for the identity management. Probably, defining a general model for people and their relationship will provide a clear representation of underlying data, which is an application of the Linked Data idea. But is that all? I will keep an eye on this project and any new update on FOAF+SSL.
Another good thing is the nice lunch buffet, especially in the condition that I had an early breakfast in the morning Walking in the Greenwich park after a full eating lets me think about an sentence which I do not know who said: Happy life is always same……
