Several instances of ALOE
are used in different scenarios and
projects, among others:
- ALOE-public is an ALOE
instance that is publicly available since 2008. It is used in real scenarios
(e.g., by the Institut Henri Tudor), but
also as a simple playground.
- Mindpool is DFKI's internal social media suite for all DFKI employees (in Berlin, Bremen, Kaiserslautern and Saarbrücken). Mindpool consists of two components: mindpool hints is a microblogging tool based on the Open Source microblogging service status.net, and mindpool treasures is a social resource sharing platform based on ALOE.
- The objective of the European
Project MACE (Metadata for
Architectural Contents in Europe) is to create a common infrastructure for
enriching and retrieving educational contents about architecture in
Europe. It was co-funded by the EU eContentPlus program from 09/2006 until
10/2009. All community features in MACE are realised using ALOE as
a social backbone.
- Within the Cluster of
Excellency "Center for Mathematical
and Computational Modelling" (CMCM), ALOE will be used as a basis
for the Web of Models. CMCM started in 2008 and is funded by the Government of Rhineland-Palatinate.
- The aim of C-LINK (Conference
Link) was the development of a web based tool to support conference
attendees. With C-LINK, users can share papers and presentations, generate
individual conference schedules, get personalized recommendations to find
interesting events and attendees, etc. C-LINK is based on ALOE and was used
during the KI 2008 (the Annual German Conference on Artificial Intelligence)
in Kaiserslautern and the ICDAR 2009 (the International Conference on
Document Analysis and Recognition) in Barcelona.
- The goal of iGreen is to realize a
distributed network of location-based services and knowledge sources
relevant for the domain of agriculture. Within iGreen, the planned expert
network will be based on ALOE. iGreen is sponsored by the German
Federal Ministry of Education and Research BMBF from 2009 to 2012.
- The aim of the project RADAR
(Resource Annotation and Delivery for Mobile Augmented Reality Services) is
the development of an ALOE-based infrastructure to contribute, organize and annotate multimedia resources that can be used within mobile augmented reality
services. Besides adapters for existing services like Layar or Wikitude, a new personalized and location-based mobile augmented reality service will also be developed. RADAR is sponsored by the Stiftung Rheinland-Pfalz für Innovation from 03/2010 until 02/2011.
