"Interactive video is a powerful new tool that allows teachers and learners to enhance video they make themselves–as well as the videos they discover on the Web–with text, images, maps, links, and other media...It appears that a new subgenre of interactive video creation tools is emerging...if you want to be part of the conversation, if you believe that video can do more than talk at you, you’ll be a lover of these powerful interactive annotation tools for video."
This is an online interactive documentary about how to make an online interactive documentary. It is an initiative which has been borne out of my Masters Research undertaking at the Australian Film Television and Radio School titled: Documentary Producing and Interactive Platforms, Opportunities, Evolving Processes and the Changing Craft. My hopes for this site are that it is used as a resource for emerging filmmakers and generates conversation around transmedia & interactive multiplatforms for documentary and that it will act as a hub for collaborations and networking opportunities. It is a ‘work in progress’.
The website hosts a web series called ‘The Journey of Documentary’, with featured interviews from documentary filmmakers/radio, screen content producers, social media experts, games developers and innovators of documentary. The website also features a crowd sourced timeline which looks at the evolution of documentary and a Test Kinema which invites filmmakers to screen their teasers and trailers and receive feedback.
This post is by Atalanti Dionysus whose thesis can also be found on the website which highlights some of her findings and new innovations in interactive documentary, you can also connect through Facebook.
The increasing availability of big data from mobile phones and location-based apps has triggered a revolution in the understanding of human mobility patterns. This data shows the ebb and flow of the daily commute in and out of cities, the pattern of travel around the world and even how disease can spread through cities via their transport systems.
So there is considerable interest in looking more closely at human mobility patterns to see just how well it can be predicted and how these predictions might be used in everything from disease control and city planning to traffic forecasting and location-based advertising.
Today we get an insight into the kind of detailed that is possible thanks to the work of Zimo Yang at Microsoft research in Beijing and a few pals. These guys start with the hypothesis that people who live in a city have a pattern of mobility that is significantly different from those who are merely visiting. By dividing travellers into locals and non-locals, their ability to predict where people are likely to visit dramatically improves.
Distributed intelligence is an ability to solve problems and process information that is not localized inside a single person or computer, but that emerges from the coordinated interactions between a large number of people and their technological extensions. The Internet and in particular the World-Wide Web form a nearly ideal substrate for the emergence of a distributed intelligence that spans the planet, integrating the knowledge, skills and intuitions of billions of people supported by billions of information-processing devices. This intelligence becomes increasingly powerful through a process of self-organization in which people and devices selectively reinforce useful links, while rejecting useless ones. This process can be modeled mathematically and computationally by representing individuals and devices as agents, connected by a weighted directed network along which "challenges" propagate. Challenges represent problems, opportunities or questions that must be processed by the agents to extract benefits and avoid penalties. Link weights are increased whenever agents extract benefit from the challenges propagated along it. My research group is developing such a large-scale simulation environment in order to better understand how the web may boost our collective intelligence. The anticipated outcome of that process is a "global brain", i.e. a nervous system for the planet that would be able to tackle both global and personal problems.
