Lora Aroyo is an associate professor at the Web and Media group, at the Department of Computer Science, VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Her research work is focussed in several projects dealing with semantic web technologies for modeling user interests and context, recommendation systems and personalized access of online multimedia collections, e.g. cultural heritage collections, multimedia archives and interactive TV. Currently she is scientific coordinator of the EU Integrated Project NoTube dealing with the integration of Web and TV data with the help of semantics, a project leader of VU INTERTAIN Experimental Research Lab initiative. She has been co-chair of numerous workshops on interactive television, social web and cultural heritage. Lora is actively involved in the Semantic Web community as a program chair for the European and the International Semantic Web Conferences in 2009 and 2011, and as conference chair for the ESWC2010 Conference. She is also actively involved in the Personalization and User modeling community as vice-president of the User Modeling Inc.Homepage: http://www.cs.vu.nl/~laroyo/Twitter: @laroyoSlideshare: http://www.slideshare.net/laroyo/About NoTubeNoTube is an EU funded project based on use cases around TV personalization, the Web, and social networking, and consisting of an international consortium. The project aims to demonstrate how Semantic Web technologies can be used as a tool to connect TV content and the Web through Linked Open Data, as part of the wider trend of TV and Web convergence. By specifying protocols and APIs to support a variety of realistic user scenarios for experiencing future TV, NoTube offers a novel contribution to the TV media world.Semantic technologies are a field of standards and technologies which allow a machine-understandable and machine-processable representation of the meaning of digital content, which can be used to create more intelligent, responsive and personalised applications. In NoTube we apply these technologies for two main purposes: (1) Semantic annotation: in the media and television area semantic annotations can enable new types of application which know what users want, and what programmes describe, so that we can build more intelligent services; and (2) User interests from the Social Web: knowledge extractable from a person's TV viewing activity and Social Web presence (on Twitter, Facebook etc.) can enable a semantic application to implicitly determine their interests, and match them to TV programmes. See related research topics.The work in the project is steered by three use cases: (1) Personalised semantic news, (2) Personalised TV guide with adaptive advertising and (3) TV and the Social Web.When we started working on NoTube its vision of bringing Web and TV closer together via shared data models and content across multiple devices was ambitious and visionary. Now it is noteworthy how much of the TV industry has caught up with this vision, at least in individual and closed new technologies and products. Yet the NoTube results are now more relevant than ever: TV platforms are proprietary, cross-device communication non-standardized. NoTube services could form the backbone for personalized TV applications where the user still controls their data.
