  • Summary:The DiY SE project will enable people to direct their everyday environment into a highly personalized eaningful communication/interaction experience that can span the home and city domains. The project ims to create a sustainable marketplace for user-generated application (components) in which nontechnically- killed people can participate. The proposed Do-it-Yourself approach in which nonprofessional
    users get the tools and the support to create and share their own smart events is supported nd motivated by visions on an Open Society (Karl Popper) in which citizens are empowered to form and hare their own view of reality. The project aims to contribute substantially to the open Internet-of-Things world and the transition to Web 3.0

    STARlab contribution:Community-based Ontology Creation methodology, Ontology-based Matching and Searching, Ontology modeling, Semantic Decision Making
