STEER: Cross-breeding social networks and networked media for enhanced storytelling and live event broadcasting
Social media already influence social relationships thus changing social structure enabled by technological advances. These advances transform the environments we are surrounded by, as they introduce new kinds of interactions between humans and objects. It is therefore natural for users within this emerging social cyberspace to demand the kind of media experiences they are accustomed to in their daily lives with the community type of communications being at the central stage. To this end, there is a compelling need to address this community-centric digitally-based ecosystem.
In this workshop we will present and discuss results from the STEER project, on how this cross-breeding of social networks and networked media can support the explosion of user generated content, ubiquitous access to everything, as well as embrace emerging community-centric media services. During the workshop, presentations will be mixed with hands-on demonstrations and a discussion on lessons learned from real-world experiments.
