Welcome to Sri Lanka

The onset of the 21st century has ushered in an era in which the very nature of what it means to be human will be both enriched and challenged. In this context of rapid ­global development it is our duty to ensure that no country or citizen is left behind. We are proud to be associated with the World Summit Award (WSA), which since 2003, has been striving to do just that. The WSA has evolved as the international showcase for content industries that can inspire the information society worldwide. This new wired world has brought humanities together in unprecedented ways but at the same time it has the potential to distance nations by threatening their sovereignty. In the light of recent developments across the globe, the notion of cyber sovereignty is an increasingly salient issue and one that cannot be ignored. Sri Lanka, having successfully concluded the internal conflict, is currently engaged in multi-pronged socio-economic development with a hitherto unknown speed and degree of success. As Sri Lanka forges forward in this climate, it is my vision that every citizen will reap the benefits of the rapid technological changes taking place around us. In an endeavor to reach this vision, a project for making the benefits of ICT accrue to all,

especially the disadvantaged was formulated. Called the ‘eSri Lanka’ programme, the initiative succeeded in taking the dividends of ICT to every village and every citizen and re-engineering the way Government thinks and works. After successfully implementing the ‘e-Sri Lanka’ Development Programme, Sri Lanka is now journeying to the next level of the ICT Development agenda, ‘SMART Sri ­Lanka. I welcome you all to Sri Lanka and invite you to enjoy the warm hospitality of the o­ldest democracy in Asia. Mahinda Rajapaksa President of Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka

Fantastic Fruits: WSA13 Winners fascinate in their richness Prof. DDr. Peter A. Bruck, Chairman of the WSA Board of Directors

The tree of Internet bears rich fruit in e-content The Internet today is like the trunk of a tree, it is the backbone of the developing Information society. Through wire-line and wire-less connections and information it branches out anywhere in the world and into every aspect of modern life. Information technology provides people on all continents with millions of leaves in terms of devices and applications. The tree blooms when good e-content blossoms shine. And it bears rich fruit when these blossoms mature. Not all of the fruit are good ones, some are even poisonous. Thus, it is most important to get the orientation one needs, what is good, what is making us strong, what lets our communities thrive. The winners 2013 of the World Summit Award are exactly that. They are the richest and most nutritious fruits in the ever expanding digital tree of the Internet, they provide orientation in the unique crown of eContent products. This book is not a map, but a catalogue of 6

answers: Which product is worth your attention, and which trend can one see? What is being developed in other parts of the world, where are commonalities and differences? How do producers and publishers of new applications and websites navigate between user interests and technological innovation? Finding the best in e-Content: World Summit Award meets the challenge since 10 years within the UN World Summit of Information Society process The World Summit Award (WSA) and its partners thrive because of our network of high-level experts in 198 UN member states who provide the knowledge to distinguish between high- and low-quality e-Content. WSA contributes to the United Nations and its mandate for the Action Plan on the World Summit on Information Society 2003 and 2005. It is our aim to find and promote the world’s best products on an international level to bridge digital divides and close the content gap between countries, within markets and

regions. The winners of the World Summit Award 2013 amaze in many aspects, be it their innovativeness, their technical perfection, their design or their strategic value. Fast border crossers, curious robots and the environment of the Middle East Three winners of the WSA 2013 give a first insight into the richness and diversity present day e-Content has to offer and the huge variety of daily life aspects the winning products of 2013 address. The Sri Lankan Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) and Integrated Border Management System (IBMS) makes traveling to the island which hosts the WSA13 Global Congress incredibly easy. Getting a visa for the country with ETA is a matter of minutes and works efficiently and safely – even in rural areas. The data generated from the application helps to improve Sri Lanka’s tourism sector, one of the most important revenues of the island. And this is exactly what the WSA stands for: e-Content developed for local needs, but with a global perspective.


What counts: local relevance with global excellence These three products showcase the importance for locally relevant, high-quality ­e-Content. Developers understand that different target audiences have different ­requirements. For example, a small community in rural Ghana needs other services than the citizens of a major city in Central ­Europe. The people behind the winning ventures of the World Summit Award 2013 demonstrate this. They know that in order to make a product successful, it has to be technically advanced and well designed. The products also need to be tailored to the living circumstances: age, gender, education, social situation, and many more factors.

Today, content flourishes especially in countries where English is not dominantly spoken by parts of the population. A good example is the WSA Award-winning Indian project enajori.com which showcases the cultural richness of the state of Assam in a bilingual monthly magazine. In e-Health and e-Government winners demonstrate the potential of integrated services and multilingual operation. They show the direction for the next stages in development. WSA serves as a platform and promoter to this potential. WSA: Inclusive Information Society depends on best in e-Content The Austrian initiative World Summit Award was launched in 2003 in the occasion of the United Nations World Summit on the Information Society. The engine that drives the WSA is fuelled by the mission to contribute to an inclusive Information Society. Hence WSA partners with the key UN agencies in the framework of the UN Geneva Agenda and the Tunis Action Plan selecting and promoting the world’s best e-Content and innovative ICT applications. More than 160 countries from all over the world are actively involved in sharing the conviction that quality contents are essential for a true information society. WSA13 showcases 40 winners projects selected from 461 submissions on the basis of content depth and value added for their specific users. By doing so, reading the catalogue serves as an intensive journey through our eight contest categories: e-Government & Open Date, e-Health & Environment, eLearning & Science, e-Entertainment & Games, e-Culture & Tourism, e-Media & Journalism, e-Business & Commerce, and e-Inclusion & Empowerment. In each of these categories, five winners are presented. The tree of the Internet is rich

with fruit of the most diverse sorts: Nigeria, Egypt, Ghana, Austria, Estonia, Finland and Saudi Arabia show a strong development with two winning ventures each. The selection of the world’s best in e-Content has been made possible thanks to the expertise and dedication of the WSA13 Grand Jurors generously invited to Tallinn/ Estonia by The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications and hosted by the Estonian Information System’s Authority, the Association of Information Technology and Telecommunications, the Centre of Registers and Information Systems and the WSA eminent national expert of Estonia, Mrs. Katri Ristal. The WSA visit took place in the framework of the EU Structural Funds’ program „Raising public awareness about the information society“ and was funded by the European Regional Development Fund. WSA is specifically grateful to the Government of Sri Lanka and the Information and Communication Technology Agency under the leadership of Mr. Reshan Dewapura who are hosting the WSA13 winners at the Global Congress. He and his team directed by Mr. Athula Pushpakumara and the WSA eminent national expert of Sri Lanka, Mrs. Chitranganie Mubarak are providing a unique celebration and demonstration of the richness of the fruit of Internet and the best crop of e-content in 2013. Together with my fellow members of the WSA board of directors and the WSA team in Salzburg/Austria, I hope you enjoy the wonderful harvest of global e-Content. Peter A. Bruck Chairman of the WSA Board of Directors

Fantastic Fruits: WSA13 Winners fascinate in their richness

The same applies to Ludwig. This Austrian winner is a game which features a little robot with a lot of curiosity, and also some feelings. Ludwig wanders an abandoned earth in the search for the last resources and learns a lot about physics on his way – and with him, the child that plays the game. Ludwig is a project that encourages children to learn more about their surroundings in a playful and never boring way – something that surely not only the kids of Austria will love. Developing a product with the use of up-todate technology, but with a very clear target audience: this is the winning formula for the Kuwait Official Environmental Portal “www. Beatona.net”. Providing an Environmental Explorer and a Knowledge Database, Beatona.net offers a wide spectrum of precious environmental information using geographic maps, GIS layers and data time series. With this, air and water quality, biodiversity, waste management and many other parameters can be checked. An efficient solution for an urgent matter!


Sri Lanka, the Wonder of Asia! Set in the Indian Ocean in South Asia, the tropical island nation of Sri Lanka is a place where nature’s beauty remains abundant and unspoilt. Sri Lanka packs into 65,610 square kilometers 1,330 kilometres of coastline – much of it pristine beach, 15 national parks showcasing an abundance of wildlife, 500,000 acres of lush tea estates, 250 acres of botanical gardens, 350 waterfalls, 25,000 water bodies and more. Few places have as many UNESCO World Heritage Sites (eight) packed into such a small area. Its 2500-plus years of culture can be discovered at ancient sites filled with mystery. Legendary temples boast beautiful details crafted by artisans through the centuries. ‘Endless beaches, timeless ruins, welcoming people, oodles of elephants, killer surf, fun trains, famous tea, flavourful food’- Lonely Planet Guide, 2013

And then there is more …. Dazzlingly white beaches ring the island so that no matter where you go, you will not be too far from a sandy gem. If you want a change of scenery, away from the tropical climate of the coast, visit the central hills beckon with its verdant tea plantations, rain forested peaks and alluring waterfalls.

That’s not all … Sri Lanka continues to lead the world in high – value niches, including fast fashion and ethical apparel in the clothing industry, solid tires and surgical gloves in the rubber industry, single origin teas in the tea sector and activated carbon in the coconut sector. Since colonial times, the country has ­excelled in education quality and enjoys a

literacy rate of 93%, highest in the region. ­Current level of IT literacy is estimated to be 35% and the Government aims to increase it to 75% by 2015. Sri Lanka’s competitive advantage also lies in the soft skills of its people who have been born on a small island with a cultural melting pot history. Sri Lanka is today capitalizing on a firm foundation of peace and stability to achieve rapid economic growth. Colombo, the commercial of hub of the country is a competitive and dynamic city reflecting the country’s aspirations of becoming an upper middle income economy and global hub. This is an island of magical proportions, once known as Serendib, Taprobane, the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, and Ceylon. Discover refreshing Sri Lanka!

Youth are a great source of creativity and innovation. If equipped with the needed skills, technology and investment to turn their ideas into successful businesses they can become drivers of economic growth and job creation in their societies. The past years have been marked by the events of the Arab Spring which are believed to be, inter alia, the result of unequal access to economic opportunities and high unemployment rates among young graduates. Young people demand to be actors of the socio-economic development of their societies. We should work towards an enabling environment to unleash the productive potential of young women and men. This will require the joint efforts of the international community, governments and the private sector. Together we can support youth worldwide to fulfill their aspirations and turn their innovative ideas into action. Information and communication technology is a key tool for development. It contributes to increased productivity and helps stimulating a competitive knowledge-based economy. Through ICT we can fast track sustainable growth and employment opportunities, particularly for the youth.

We at ICTA are proud and honored to host the 6th edition of the World Summit Award Winners Events here in Sri Lanka. Capitalizing on the firm foundation of peace and stability made possible by the vision and direction of His Excellency Mahinda Rajapaksha, Sri Lanka is today on a path of rapid economic growth. The ICT Policy of the Government of Sri Lanka has been both ambitious and successful. The e-Sri Lanka Initiative, the flag ship programme of the ICTA has contributed to creating a more effective, citizen centered government while paving the way for accelerated growth and increased employment by making the country a favored IT/ BPO destination and empowering communities through affordable access and relevant digital content. It is in this environ-

ment that Sri Lanka is today hosting this very prestigious and significant international event. We are living in an era where the pace of technological change is getting faster and faster, unaffected by any man made or natural catastrophe the world has had to face. It is important that all nations draw on these developments to improve their economies and empower society. The World Summit Award makes this possible by bringing 150 countries to one common platform to share experiences, exchange ideas and above all to recognize the innovative skills of a multitude of developers from all corners of the world. We are proud that in our short association with the WSA, Sri Lanka has had seven products that stood tall among the hundreds of nominations that came in from countries across the globe. The WSA winners’ events and the WSA Global Congress will constitute the highlight of the Country’s ICT Week. It is an unparalleled opportunity to share expertise and experience and planning for the future. I would like to extend a very warm welcome to everyone to our beautiful country – Sri Lanka.

Irina Bokova Director-General UNESCO

Ahmad Alhendawi United Nations Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth

The World Summit on the Information ­Society (WSIS) is bringing UN organizations and programmes together around a common goal: to channel the great potential of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to everybody. Partnering with governments, private sector and civil society in over 160 UN Member States, the World Summit Award supports the implementation of the UN agendas for Information Society and Development of the Information Society, and the Millennium Development Goals of ending poverty, hun-

ger and disease, providing education for all, saving the environment, and giving a fair share to women through the use of ICTs. Responding to rapid changes in the information society, the World Summit Award initiative emphasizes cultural diversity and identity, the creation of varied information content, and the digitalization of educational, scientific and cultural heritage. It aims to make the benefits of the new information society accessible and meaningful for all. Unfortunately I am not able to be with you in person, but I did visit Sri Lanka earlier this year and am very happy for those of you who have the chance to see this beautiful country and participate in the World Summit Award Global Congress. Therefore, from a distance this time, I am particularly happy to congratulate the 2013 winners and I wish you great success with the forthcoming congress in Sri Lanka!

I wish to congratulate each of the developers who have taken part in the WSA 2013. Each of you is a winner – a winner for inclusion and innovation, a winner for building stronger knowledge societies. We need precisely these kinds of initiatives, to harness the power of new information and communication technologies for more sustainable and just development. UNESCO’s position is clear – we must move forward together, by giving everyone an unhindered voice through new technologies and media, by respecting cultural and linguistic diversity, by promoting the rights, dignity and capacities of every woman and man.

Walda Roseman Chief Operating Officer, Internet Society

It’s exciting to see the energy, the ideas, and the increased richness of the Internet that is unleashed through the creativity of Internet citizens from across the globe. The Internet Society believes the Internet is for everyone, and we applaud the World Summit Awards and its initiatives to showcase the power of local content and diversity on global issues.

Today more than ever, information and communication technologies (ICT) have the potential to provide new solutions to the many challenges faced by modernizing societies around the world. The innovations seen here at World Summit Award 2013 provide new tools in the fight against poverty, inequality, and heightened vulnerabilities arising from climate change. As the global community shapes the post2015 development agenda, it is imperative that we harness the power of ICT as a critical component of innovative and sustainable development solutions that enhance our ­resilience to future risks. I thank all participants for their pioneering contributions towards this end. In particular, I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to the winners of the World Summit Award.

I warmly congratulate the winners and all the participants in the 2013 World Summit Awards. ICTs are an integral part of UNC­­

“At ICANN, we are helping to bring the next billion Internet users online. Thanks to the New generic Top-Level Domain Program, we will soon see the deployment of more than 1,000 new domain extensions. What is exciting about this program is that many of these

new gTLDs are in scripts other than English —they are in Chinese, Arabic and Cyrillic among others and they surely will change the linguistic character of the Internet. The young talent and entrepreneurial spirit highlighted by WSA is exactly what will be needed to harness the opportunities that will open as the Internet expands, develops, and transforms. These young talents will change the quality of local Internet content – in both English and non-English scripts – and this will have global impact. This is why ICANN is a proud supporter of WSA.”

Battle of the Maps: The 2014 Ad Game Changer

Gary Schwartz, President and CEO of Impact Mobile, gives some insight into the world of online map applications...

12

Battle of the Maps

Of all the widgets and long-forgotten apps on your phone the one with most mobile mindshare is your map app. We have become a mobile society, and in the 2010s, map apps personify our wanderlust. When we open our mobile map, we have intent, direction and purpose. It is vitamin “M”: the ultimate upper and highly addictive. And map real estate is hot: Apple buys Locationary, Embark and HopStop; Google buys Waze; Bing is rumored to be in talks with FourSquare; Zillow, the map real estate tycoon, buys EasyStreet, and indoor mapping app company Aisle411 raises a hefty seed round in the valley. As OEMs beef up their services, we are entering a new phase of map building. Location has always been a data grab. Now, the industry is starting to focus on monetising subway stops, street corners and highways across the world. The principal challenge is that maps are a new and unique advertising paradigm, and the incumbent search business models, mostly designed for the web’s previous era as a stationary, desktop experience may need to be adjusted.

Maps and Metadata Google+ Local launched in 2012, allowing users to post reviews and images into pages hosted by third party sites. This year maps are becoming more customized, providing location-specific information on points-ofinterest. While Google has maintained a focus on road navigation with its 2013 acquisition of the crowd sourcing road-warrior Waze software, the operative term on the new Google map is “explore.” Explore photos, recommendations, and restaurants. Google announced local advertising. Google Maps now allows short sections of advertisements to be placed directly onto the map itself. Local advertising is one of Google’s core businesses and Google Maps ad purchases are made through the same Google AdWords auction that buyers are already very familiar with. For Google this is simply a terrestrial version of browser-based search. When a consumer enters “Starbucks” in her browser, she finds links to buy “Starbucks Instant Coffee Bundle” on Amazon.com. When a consumer


Don’t forget the Big Apple Apple recognized the value of maps and knew that they had a Trojan Horse lurking in their mobile operating system in Google Maps. Google’s map app had become the dominant phone top service with the most unique visitors of any app in-market. When Apple launched and preloaded its own proprietary map app in August 2012, Google’s traffic dropped making Facebook the winning app for unique impressions as well as time spend. (After a few geographical faux pas) Apple started to establish its own relationship with the map consumer. But Google Mappers are loyal. When Google launched its new map app for iOS 6 in December there was a 30 percent rush of Apple folk upgrading to the new operating system (MoPub.com). Affinity to a map app had influenced these consumers’ mobile behaviour. Quite remarkable. However, Apple is committed to build a map following. While the company no longer needed to pay licensing to Google, which was good, the key reason for ousting Google Maps was that maps had become a data pillar. By replacing Google, Apple had direct access to a wealth of consumer data and potential advertising revenue. Yahoo! Maps, Bing Maps, Nokia Maps, and MapQuest all use the NAVTEQ electronic map feed (best known for its automotive navigation services), and like Apple now, they own their own consumer data layer, which is crucial for generating advertising and marketing revenue on maps. Bing is the major map contender. In September, the company added 13 million square kilometers (316TB) of aircraft and satellite

photography to its service. Microsoft’s large investment in Facebook in 2007 ($240 million) led to the 2013 decision to adopt Bing as Facebook’s mapping and search provider. To do this effectively, and compete with the market-leader, Google, Bing needs to beef up and differentiate its map offerings. Bing has already rolled out “Local Scout” which helps consumers find food and fun across all its screens. Rumors of a FourSquare acquisition (or possibly financing) may be part of this grand strategy. With the proliferation of WiFi networks in retail, vendors such as Cisco drive mobile mapping solutions for shoppers that join the free network. The maps allow for hyper-local, custom mapping that includes restroom as well as promotional information on retail stores. All of these digital map offerings are entering the mainstream at a time when advertisers are questioning consumer engagement on mobile, and trying to understand how best to follow their consumer in a contextual and relevant manner. Brands and retailers are reevaluating the way we sell and, more importantly, engage across multiple screens. Their assumptions on path-to-purchase, built during the era of the desktop web, are no longer fully valid and reliable. The classic consumer narrative of home-to-store has changed and retailers and brands can no longer simply hire a Director of Shopper Insights and hope for the best. Advertising and marketing is about providing a consistent message at aisle, and checkout, wherever the shopper finds the retailer. If the advertisers wants to get back in the game, possibly the most exciting place to be right now is on the map. When the consumers and shopper opens their map app when they have the intent to meet someone, go somewhere or buy something. All this drives commerce. Maps provide unadulterated path-to-purchase.

Narrative: Going beyond advertising So what is the new advertising paradigm for maps? Maps have layered functionality: terrain, roads, satellite, traffic, public transport

and images. Then there is the exploration layer: recommendations and general pointsof-interest. And now Google has provided an additional local advertising layer. However, adding an advertising layer may not prove to be effective in a map environment. There is more value to the exploration layer. Yes, maps help us move in a utilitarian fashion from Point-A to Point-B and that is why Waze and other transit acquisitions have been so important. But maps also have a very non-utilitarian function. Maps help the consumer to simply “explore” and this is what will ultimately connect map users to brands and content owners. Maps tell stories because precisely they have a beginning and an end, and are defined by intent and clear purpose. Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook already situate the user’s photos and comments at a latitude and longitude: a country, a city, a bar. However, these social graphs are not map applications and location is an important but secondary metatag. The opportunity is to build a new bespoke map layer for brands and content owners. Think map first. Startups such as Findery and CityMaps have map based UGC (user-generated content) engines. Where is the content input engine for brands? How can brands visualize content and actively map this data across all their customers’ screens? One company called Mapiary, based out of Singapore, is developing the tools to allow brands and retailers to layer rich navigation onto the map. How can Unilever’s Becel margarine be more relevant to power walkers globally? Or how can Heineken weave narrative into a city pub crawl? Diageo can map a DJ tour for Smirnoff. The NYTimes can map their 36-Hour travel series in a rich contextual manner. This is new digital cartouche and as important as the underlying map. Where is the new vision of brand advertising? After all the innovation that Lars Rasmussen (Google Maps) and John Hanke (Google Earth) brought to maps we surely need to go beyond paid search models and allow owned content to become a rich and valuable layer in the 2014 map.

enters Starbucks in Google Maps, she finds local Starbucks to get the real deal (or if Tim Hortons is bidding, an ad for a competitively located Timmy’s coffee store). Both these use cases involve path to purchase. One is virtual, the other is proximal. Google hopes Map-based ads will follow the same digital success that Google has had with its search-based ads. Instead of auctioning AdWords at point-of-search, Google auctions ads at point-of-navigation.


Trends, Facts, Insights In the year of 2013, it has become a challenge to develop high-quality e-Content that stands out on the market: the competition is huge. Five high-ranking WSA experts speak about the chances and trends in the ever-growing business.

People do not use social media like they should. Chitranganie Mubarak, Senior Programme Head of ICTA Sri Lanka Broadband connection countrywide, e-content developed for very specific local needs and the appropriate handling of social media: Chitranganie Mubarak speaks about the latest developments in her countries e-content sector.

The next big thing in e-content Mobile is coming up really big in Sri Lanka. We have a mobile penetration rate of well over 100 percent, and there are a lot of initiatives promoting mobile phone apps now. New social media apps, means of accessing, government online services and e-commerce programs are getting developed all the time. You can buy smartphones for less than 100 Dollar in Sri Lanka nowadays

Content, designed for a Sri Lankan audience A lot of the mobile operators try to be the driver of innovation. They are actively searching for progressive e-content, and they engage a lot of people in developing it. Another big factor is the creation of content which is designed for the Sri Lankan audience only. No one else in the world speaks our language, so it is still hard to find content which is relevant for us and is not written in English. Developing this local e-content is important: it makes people feel comfort-

able using something which they can relate to easily.

Open data: a true challenge We need to have more government services and open data online – this is what the people need. Especially the governmental institutions on a local level frequently ask for help in their IT work; it gives them a lot of prestige to be progressive in this point. This is a true challenge.

The many opportunities of social media People do not use social media like they should. It’s all about socializing, but there are so many more opportunities. You can use social media for marketing, business and commerce, especially in small time ventures. Like, bake your own cakes at home and promote them via social marketing. Besides that, what people still do not understand: do not tell people something via Facebook which you would not tell them in real life!


WSA friends share their views about high-quality e-Content of tomorrow

For example, with certain apps, you can hold your smartphone to a box of medication and you will get the information where, when and by whom this medication was produced, and much more. With products like this, e-health will dominate the industry in the next 10, maybe 15 years.

Nowadays, small countries find solutions for the whole world, like Estonia, where Skype was invented. In e-content, everyone can fulfill his creative idea from his home garage. But, it is the duty of the governments to identify ideas which have a high potential, and to promote them. And this is something which does not always work in developed countries like it should. The smaller and more centralized a country is, the easier the implementation gets. But, even if you live in a small country, you still need the will and the means to establish an innovative idea. The society needs the courage to change something in order to recognize what can be gained by innovative online solutions.

e-Government: a sector in its infancy Machine-to-machine communication is getting more important; for example in the automobile industry. E-Government is another important field; however, this sector is still in its infancy. We will have to see if e-Government products will be able to assert themselves on the market, since up till now, the big business players tend to not recognize eGovernment as a real opportunity. But, ever since we started to publicize certain data, the number of apps which use this data in one way or the other started to explode.

The demands of your target group If you think that you have a good idea, you always have to ask yourself: is this innovation of mine desired by a number of consumers, and if that is true, by whom and where? The Estonians, for example, do it right: There

are firms here that produce e-content for consumers in Tanzania because their product works exactly for the regional wishes and requests of these people. If you choose to do something like this, you have to inform yourself very well about the demands of your target group, and about the legislative situation in this specific regional area.

Huge potential in developing countries Since a lot of e-content is not yet implemented in developing countries, the potential in these regions is huge, and by that, also the creative potential. Still, the quality of econtent in the developed countries is usually very high, but nowadays, I can acquire these high quality standards in developing countries as well and be flexible. Also, in developing countries, startups often get better promoted than elsewhere. What we all have to learn is the ability to make mistakes: try something new, see if it works or if it doesn’t. If we don’t do that, we will be conservative and not creative.

WSA friends share their views about high-quality e-Content of tomorrow Young producers set the standards. Dorothy Gordon, Director General of the Ghana India Kofi A ­ nnan Center for Excellence in ICT A lot of opportunities, many challenges: Dorothy Gordon shares her views about the development of e-content in an emerging market.

Content for special local needs

Active communities

In Ghana, we see that adaption to global norms is more and more common when it comes to digital product design. On the other hand, more and more content gets developed for special local needs.

Young producers are on the cutting edge – they set the standards. It is the young people who have the ideas, not some old grey-headed guys. Young people have active communities across the continents. No problem for a young producer from Estonia to do some business with his friend over in Argentina!

Combinations of old and new media The digital divide is a critical issue in­ Ghana, when you think about the differences in bandwidth connection speed. This also affects the content gap. On the other hand, this reality results in some interesting combinations of old and new media, where for example Radio, TV and Apps work together to reach different market segments. This leads to the creation of some really innovative products.

Trends, Facts, Insights

The drive is coming from women The special task for us is to bring more women online with content that meets the women’s personal needs. And this has to be content which uses our first language, not English – the internet is still too western orientated. The women have to learn to not only use, but also to actively create content for their own needs. The drive is indeed coming

from women themselves, and a lot of genderrelated initiatives are on their way.

A rapidly moving field I am pretty impressed with the technological skills we have here in Ghana; our social marketing is very advanced. But our young producers have to learn how to talk to investors, to go where real business gets done. The ICT industry is a rapidly moving field. Building up a stable business in this field means that you have to acquire some commercial skills. Try to focus on the distinctive features of certain markets, understand your audience, and find a way to keep your business initiative sustainable.


WSA friends share their views about high-quality e-Content of tomorrow Emerging markets developing cool stuff: an important trend indeed.

Colloquial contextual relevance The secret of stars like Madonna and Lady Gaga is that they really know how to reach their audience. Take Lady Gaga, for example. She has more than 40 million followers on Twitter, which is massive. And she has these 40 million followers because she knows how to connect with her audience. Colloquial contextual relevance is the key. When Lady Gaga sings a song in the Estonian language, everybody in Estonia will start to like her; the people feel a link to her. You have to find a contextual relevance, like talking to your audience in their native language.

Connect with your audience Young ICT entrepreneurs can use this colloquial contextual relevance in exactly the same way: connect with your audience, create some entertainment input. For example, when you do a project in Ghana, get a prominent Ghanaian footballer to tell the people how to use this product. They will listen.

The role of the emerging markets An important trend indeed: emerging markets developing cool stuff. Did you know that mobile money was invented in Kenia? You could buy a Coke with your smartphone seven years ago there, now you can do it in the United States.

Everyone is a “Screenager” Multiscreen construction and implementation is one of the most important topics. Every single one of us is a “Acreenager”, we look at the screen of our mobiles 150 times a day, and we look at several screens at the same time. What do you do about multiscreen implementation, and how does that tie in with other areas? Important questions. Other trends are mobile money, mobile health, and mobile energy.

Cities as IT-incubators If you want to be creative, the local surroundings you live in are the first important factor. There are five things a city must have in order to become a major IT-incubator: people with software skills, large open spaces to work with, like empty fabrics or warehouses, low rents in these places, easy immigration for foreign IT-talents, and a strong electronic dance music scene and DJ culture. Electronic Dance Music is the pulse upon which incubation cities and innovation groups thrive... and get their musical and creative inspiration that helps them go on and create great software and coding. You need to have a community, and you need to get funding.. Do something which eases the daily life, but do it with a worldly view. The trend is to do something for free first. Believe me: if people like what you create, they will pay eventually. As they say: give the people a razor for free, but let them buy the blades.

WSA friends share their views about high-quality e-Content of tomorrow Self-education is the key. Manar Al Hashash, Secretary General of the Kuwait eAward

Promote cultural heritage What I noticed globally in the field of content development as well as in general is standardization. In the younger generation, everybody tends to dress the same, eat the same, and have the same habits. And this is quite sad, because if we lose the cultural differences, we lose everything. I think that something can be done against this trend by the means of locally relevant e-content which promotes local cultural heritage, ways of living and traditions.

The role of the smartphone The Kuwaitis are willing to give up everything before they will give up their smartphone! It’s amazing to see what the younger generation can do with a smartphone – and it is an opportunity to boost creativity.

Women in ICT We have more than 60 percent women in our graduation classes. But, after school a lot of

women decide to marry and have children early, and it is very difficult for them not to lose the connection when they try to come back to the ICT industry after a baby break. This industry is so fast moving; if you are gone for just a short time, there is always a new system, a new App to work with. And this is a problem which affects not only the women of Kuwait, but from everywhere. You will find societies all over the world where women are passive for one reason or another, and this has nothing to do with religion. In poorer countries, maybe they marry too soon, work too early in their lives and miss a proper education. If you don’t get education, you’ll lose your future.

Keep up with the business Self-education is the key in this situation. You have to keep up with the developments in the business. Empowering women means giving them access to knowledge and improve their wellbeing, and this is incredibly

easy with e-content. Take the example of a working mom who does not have any time to go back to school. She can gain knowledge with her smartphone, for example about some handcrafting. Now, if she uses her smartphone in order to also learn something about marketing, she can work on her products, put them online and sell them on the net while she is at home and takes care of her kids. By doing so, she will earn money which will provide her with a better lifestyle, and it will be easier for her to gain more knowledge and thereby expand her little business. Easy!

Be interactive Today, everything is about connecting and interactive content. You have to connect with others, and you have to be interactive. Everything that is not interactive will fail.

Jury Comment

The Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) and Integrated Border Management System (IBMS) is a web-based system providing 24/7 service, including speedy state of the art issuing of online visas or new passports. Produced by the Sri Lankan Department of Immigration and Emigration, the modular program manages the complete life cycle of border control, as well as of travel document issuance. As the only border management system in South Asia connected to the databases of Interpol, designed to track the online movement of internationally wanted persons using lost/stolen passports, IBS has increased the efficiency of visa authorities and streamlined the online application and issuance procedure. From a cumbersome process taking months, the Decentralized Travel Document module enables the issuing of passports through DI&E Branches in hours, island wide, thus facilitating those in rural areas seeking employment overseas. In addition to the many benefits, the data generated from these applications helps tourism entities to adapt the tourism strategy for visitors to Sri Lanka.

With the Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) and Integrated Border Management System (IBMS), the Department of Immigration and Emigration of Sri Lanka has further raised the level of safeguarding the borders of the country by implementing a state of the art solution to issue online visas and reducing the threat to national security.

Jury Comment

Crossing the Estonian border from Russia, an external EU border was once a time-consuming, unsure wrangle lasting days and resulting in bribery, illegal sale of spots in the queue, pollution, traffic safety issues and losses for freight carriers. Since implementation of the GoSwift project, shorter waiting times and the elimination of physical lineups have resulted in an end to the illegal sale of places in line, better security and less waste problems at the border. By allocating a specific time and date for the applicant to cross the border online, GoSwift has created minimum waiting, cleaner surroundings near border crossing points and considerably more movement of cars and trucks due to online efficiency. Using the GoSwift system, trucks and cars can now drive to the border just before the registered border crossing time. Drivers can wait at designated waiting areas where toilets, showers, dining areas, and free WIFI are available, proceeding as scheduled to cross the border easily and on time. As a Private Public Partnership project, the system saves Estonian transport companies four million Euros a year.

Once this system was implemented, waiting times became shorter, physical waiting lines ended to exist as well as illegal sale of places in the queue, garbage pollution, traffic safety issues and loss of profit for owners of the goods and carriers.

Producers Comment The GoSwift service is becoming an irreplaceable tool for road transport companies, border patrols, as well as customs. By now the system has evolved into an important component in the planning process in all countries that are using the service.

Jury Comment

Transparent Nigeria is a movement to hold the Nigerian government accountable for its actions. By publicizing the amount and use of Nigeria’s public funds, the Transparent Nigeria online database aims to change widespread corruption rampant in the country and to offer people an alternative to frustration. Using data from the Ministry of Finance, Transparent Nigeria addresses an audience of 150,000 and growing daily, bringing the generally known discrepancies to public awareness in a more structured way. Users may find out how public servants in federal and state governments are spending the public’s money; what infrastructural projects they have promised to build and how much these projects will cost; how many jobs are purported to be created. Transparent Nigeria also takes note of the compensation public servants receive and aims to hold government and business leaders to accountability, thus bringing about change towards a fairer and less corrupt country.

The jury noted and commends this initiative for helping the citizens of Nigeria and hopefully starting a change which will result in a country with less corruption and more equality for the people.

Producers Comment Being based on the web, we serve as a permanent and easily accessible record, unlike the transient publication of financial figures that may occur in daily newspapers. Transparent Nigeria brings more than just data and numbers. Our combination of news editorials allows our users to not only have access to information but also to understand from what lens they should view and interpret the data available.

Jury Comment

LobbyPlag is an example of successful e-governance, using a combination of open data and citizen initiative to track policymaking and lobbying in democratic governments, especially relevant in the context of European Union regulation proposals. A discovery and mapping tool to track lobbyists intervening with lawmakers, the lobbyplag.eu platform uses a crowd sourced process, mapping change proposals made by lobbying groups to actual changes in the texts of upcoming legislation. At the same time, lawmakers are made aware of the consequences of changes. The site shows alert citizens how to use digital tools to hold elected policymakers to transparency and thereby to accountability. Site designers present materials in a visually appealing manner, juxtaposing lobby documents and policy texts in one screen and highlighting similar paragraphs for comparison. This project offers responsible citizen discovery via crowdsourcing as an antidote to the plague of special interest lobbying, by helping to avoid bad choices that might otherwise be permanently written into the law.

This site has already had a string of successes; for instance, a case of detected plagiarism led to the resignation of a minister of defence. LobbyPlag has received praise from international media, and the WSA jurors are pleased to add their stamp of approval and merit to this project.

Jury Comment

True-Kare is an effective service to simplify the life of elderly people needing care, enabling a person or institution to provide remote care for another person. The service is based upon communication between two central interfaces: a self-care web portal accessed by the caregiver and a mobile phone designed for the care recipient built into an SOS Watch and a SOS Keychain. The service allows easy monitoring of key health indicators through a Blood Pressure/ Glucose Meter via a Bluetooth interface and provides support for daily activities, such as the taking of medication, as well as emergency assistance via GPS and geofencing. While telecare technologies are not uncommon in many European countries, most of these are based on commercial institutions with emergency call centres for elderly people at home or on GPS trackers. True-Kare offers distinctive advantages. All features are available both at home and outside. The device itself is both attractive and easy to use, enabling professional, as well as informal care. The service is integrated in the biggest telecare platforms in the EU and in France. True-Kare currently serves 800.000 elderly people in fourteen European Countries.

Today we live in a world where rising life expectancy and declining birth rates are leading to an aging population. This trend, initially seen in developed countries, is now evident in less economically ­developed countries as well. In fact it is said that in the entirety of recorded human history, the world has never seen as aged a population as that which currently exists globally. True-Kare is an effec-

Jury Evaluation Report

Uepaa(!) is a mobile app that goes far beyond the boundaries of today’s network coverage, pioneering the next level of outdoor safety. Developed in close collaboration with REGA, Swisscom, Mammut and other partners, Uepaa(!) turns the smartphone of more than 25 million outdoor users into an alpine tracking, alerting and rescue device. Its key feature is based on a disruptive wireless phone to phone (mesh-) communication technology developed by ETH Zürich. Launched in summer 2013, the app has already proven its usage for outdoor sport-lovers, out-of-range hikers and travellers in remote locations and terrains, as well as for professionals needing to supply staff with a tracking and rescue capability, irrespective of sufficient or effective mobile coverage. The three key product values include: Accident detection, Comrade Aid and Remote Tracking. Uepaa(!) also allows your location to be automatically shared with other users within range, so that your position is relayed even in the remotest areas. By bringing individuals and groups, whether professionals or travellers in the field, their own 24/7 emergency line, Uepaa(!) sets the standard for future outdoor/alpine safety and rescue tracking.

The app is determining the future of outdoor and alpine safety and rescue tracking and has already won a number of awards for originality of technology and utility.

Producers Comment This event is an exciting opportunity for us to promote our revolutionary technology on a global stage, educating people about the new possibilities our integration of peer2peer technology into smartphones offers. Whilst the “mesh” technology is currently used mainly in alpine areas, it has the potential to be helpful in cases including (but not limited to) disaster relief, kidnapping, sexual abuse and building of infrastructure in remote areas. In any situation where time matters or any place where a network is not available, our technology will be used.

Description

Jury Comment

The MoTeCH project uses mobile technology to improve maternal and child health in rural Ghana. The Mobile-Midwife application delivers vital health information and educational messages that are timed to the stages of pregnancy. Couples can access MoTeCH messages via SMS (text) or voice in the local dialect or in English. When a client misses a call, she can “flash” the system to request her messages at a convenient time. The Nurse Application simplifies patient registration and the collection of clinical information. The midwife enters client encounters on a simple mobile phone and electronically records the care given. This enables easy identification of both mothers and infants, and saves time in collating information for the generation of monthly reports, alerts and reminders. The Client Data Application enables rural health facility nurses to upload client data using “mforms” on their mobile phones. With over 30,000 women already benefitting, the messages continue through the first year of life to coordinate vaccination schedules and reinforce positive childcare practices.

Using the mobile in an easily understandable way, this application improves health, delivers important health information to the women in need in their local language and strengthens the general wellbeing of child and mother.

Description

Jury Comment

I-MOVE to Learn is a training game designed for children aged 4 to 12 with developmental disabilities causing motoric delay and coordination problems. Such children need intensive physiotherapy at special child care centres. Repetitive exercises are not only expensive, but are often resisted by young children as tedious and boring. I-MOVE to Learn tackles this problem in an innovative way using a game-based virtual reality multi-purpose motor training programme. With 5 minigames, each focusing on one of the five motor domains, ­I-MOVE to Learn motivates children to do exercises by playing interactive games. The Kinect for Windows sensor detects body movement. Players use their bodies as a control to move up to the next level. Colourful, attractive graphics and a point-scoring method keep the child engaged and motivated. I-MOVE to Learn is an aid for physiotherapists and can also be used by teachers and parents. Importantly, the training platform offers an assessment report for therapists, teachers and parents to track the child’s training progress.

Some children suffer from a delay in motor development and problems of motor clumsiness. They need intensive training and physical exercises which can be both expensive for the parents as they are boring for the child. I-Move to Learn has come up with a unique, playful solution to this problem.

winner_ e-Health & Environment

Producers Comment Based on research and interviews, the current training method for children with motor delay and coordination problems is boring. This project is aimed to provide an aid to physiotherapists and parents to enhance their children’s training. Besides the regular exercises in sport centers, children can use this game to increase their training time, no matter if they are at the school or at home. As the application is designed by a senior physiotherapist and a game development company, it can provide a standard training method to the teachers and parents, and children can have fun while doing the training.

Jury Comment

Ludwig is a new type of learning game which not only conveys knowledge about renewable energy, but is also really fun! Aimed at children eleven years and up, the game seamlessly integrates learning content into more than eight hours of stimulating gameplay arching over four unique environments. The storyline involves the departure of humankind from Earth and life in space colonies. Ludwig, a research robot from a faraway civilisation and his spaceship are looking for forms of new energy. After an accidental crash damages Ludwig´s spaceship badly enough for him to lose control of it and crash land on planet Earth, it´s a race against time to get his spaceship going again. Solving the puzzles in the game, children effortlessly discover physical phenomena and the laws of physics related to combustion, water power, wind and solar energy. They also gain a detailed understanding of energy production and renewable energy sources. Ludwig was developed with physics teachers, pupils and educators, and comes along with a set of didactical materials for work in class. As a result of playing the game, children end up developing real interest and an impressive concept map of knowledge.

Ludwig is a serious game which has been designed to be fun to play. The learning content (based on the curriculum and developed together with physic didactics, teachers and students) is integrated into the gameplay. By playing the game, the child constantly stays engaged with the embedded content while solving the games puzzles and challenges.

Description

Jury Comment

As part of its strategic mandate to meet the educational needs of students, the government of Osun State in Nigeria commissioned a technology-based learning system. The Opon Imo software has been installed on a total of 150,000 android tablets distributed to all the pupils of senior secondary schools in the state. Opon Imo Technology Enhanced Learning Systems (OTELS) is a stand-alone system consisting of a compelling self-paced series of off-line courses, conducted in a highly interactive computer- based learning environment and synchronized to a library of relevant e-books and a testing section. The tablets are robust enough for the rugged weather and harsh conditions of remote areas in Nigeria. What makes the project and the use of tablets attractive is archival access to exam questions of the last ten years prepared for senior secondary students in all three grades. Making the search for physical text books obsolete, the tablet is enriched with multimedia content including video, images, text and referential material and test questions for practice.

Easy to use, durable even under harsh conditions, rich in multimedia content: this tablet could change the way Nigerian students do their daily learning.

Making music through movement on an interactive digital platform, interactive dance / INaxyz heralds the creation of a new dance form where the power and grace of the human body translates into innovative musical composition. The simplicity of the electronic devices, equivalent to five sensors, opens up the possibility of creating solo, as well as highly interactive works, whether by professional or amateur choreographers. The product takes communication between dancers to a new level as they respond to each other through both sound and movement. The possibility of assigning different tones and levels of intensity to different dancers is the exciting dimension that introduces new levels of compositional control. It will be exciting to see how the various traditions of dance incorporate these new technologies into their repertoire and so extend their reach to new audiences. For the younger generation, interactive dance / INaxyz helps enchant kids with dance and build their skill levels beyond interactive video gaming dance applications.

Description

Jury Comment

Today with the advent of countless screen-based games, many young children lose interest in conventional stories told in conventional ways. Kinetic Stories is a series of storybooks that combine traditional storytelling with the latest developments in motion tracking and speech recognition technology. Through this unique combination, a Kinetic Story allows any child – or playful adult – to literally step into the role of their favourite storybook character, becoming an active part of the storytelling experience. For a child, storytelling involves doing what comes most naturally – telling a story through their own movements and voice. While doing so, the child de­velops their mental and physical capabilities. A key aspect in the concept of K ­ inetic Stories is the continuation of the story beyond the digital realm in the printed book. Thus the printed book continues to play a role in the story telling, so that the child is also inspired to read in the traditional sense.

Kids love a good story - and actually, so do adults. A unique feature of Kinetic Stories is that interactive content can be updated and hidden content can be uncovered by showing certain pages of the printed book to the sensor device at key points in the story.

44

winner_ e-Entertainment & Games

Producers Comment Even though Kinetic Stories is foremost about entertainment, it is bound to offer elements that could be seen as supportive of the child’s physical and mental development. For example, the interaction could include singing, dancing, saying hello, jumping or even just sitting down. Similarly the child could be asked simple questions like ”Who is this?” or ”Which one of these is a hedgehog?”, to which the child could either answer by speech or by pointing out the right answer from the screen.

Jury Comment

TransferWise is a disruptive revolutionary solution allowing users to transfer money across different currencies without being charged exorbitant fees, as is currently the case with existing bank transfers. Using peer-to-peer technology that cuts out traditional banking altogether, TransferWise allows regular people to access the real, mid-market exchange rate, paying only a tiny, fully transparent service charge. The system is easy to use and simple, yet powerful. TransferWise has resolved the ‘trust’ issue by obtaining certification from the FSA. The use of local accounts makes it convenient for u ­ sers to deposit their local currencies. Customers can also send money ­directly from their debit card without having to visit their internet bank, making the transfer almost instant. The growing adoption of TransferWise impacts the way that banks make profits on international currency exchanges. TransferWise hopes to upend the entire sector, in the same way as Skype transformed the making of international phone calls.

TransferWise is a true demonstration of the Internet’s potential to empower individuals. The Jury believes that TransferWise will spark a digital revolution in the financial services industry.

Producers Comment In contrast to the banks, TransferWise wants international money transfer to be as cheap and transparent as possible. Rather than asking “how much can we charge?” we want to ask “how little can we charge and still be able to build a global sustainable business?”. The fees the business does charge are laid out clearly from the outset never hidden within an exchange rate. We hope this will fully transform the way in which people pursue international money transfers.

Jury Comment

Conekta is a platform that allows businesses in Mexico to process online payments using both online and offline methods. With Conekta’s technology, any business can start a transaction in minutes, revolutionizing the way payments are made in Latin America. Using tools which automate the payment process and are more efficient than currently used methods, Conekta provides accessible channels to the majority of the market in countries like Mexico, including offline channels that were previously disregarded by dominant payment systems such as Brantree or Paypal. The solution is also very simple: the store owner can integrate Conekta into his or her e-Commerce store with only 3 lines of code, the customer can print a bar code and go to one of 10,000 stores to pay. With Conekta, customers create the payment experience they need, handling the entire transaction process from security issues to recurring payments themselves. Conekta is designed for any kind of transaction, whether charging for a service, selling physical products, taking donations, making e-Commerce offers, or enabling marketplaces for third parties. The solution is accessible to any size of business and provides professional tools to customers regardless of the transaction volume.

Given the small number of e-Commerce transactions in Mexico, ­omnipresent fraud and the general problem of “trust”, the jury found this platform to be an excellent tool to overcome the e-Commerce gap. There are many e-payment processors and tools on the market, but Conekta addresses the problem for Mexicans in a very intelligent manner. The jury recommends this solution as a good example of a problem-solving, practical and convenient payment solution.

Producers Comment Conekta is building a new online payment system that provides ­ erchants and marketplaces with an easy way to start accepting m payments on a website. It is a full stack solution and is designed to be simple to integrate and frictionless in terms of getting started. Conekta works very transparent, is low priced and provides fraud detection as a core component.

SEEcult.org is a portal for south-eastern European culture, established in Belgrade in 2003 as a developmental and educational documentary presentation online platform for culture and art in Serbia and the region. Its aim is to inform, present and incite development of an open cultural and artistic scene, as well as to help cultural institutions, artists and artistic organizations to present their creative work, and to participate more actively on the regional, European and world scene. SEEcult.org encourages the exchange of ideas, the development of critical standpoints and the overcoming of stereotypes. Besides daily news about events, cultural policies, open calls, debates and various projects, SEEcult.org portal has an Events Calendar, Photo Galleries, Artists’ Gallery, Blog, as well as profile presentations of artists and cultural institutions, providing myriad opportunities for the creation and distribution of content on the most popular social n ­ etworks. SEEcult.org also enables users to become interactive via comments, content-sharing, and individual blogs. The fact that SEEcult.org is often republished by various print/electronic and online media across the region is the best indicator of its high quality.

The SEEcult.org portal brings a refreshing change within the context of nationalistic Serbian narratives which have been instrumentalized by state-supported cultural and art institutions. SEEcult.org widens the public space for other voices in culture and art, while boosting critical discussion, too. Bearing in mind the aspirations of countries in the region to join the European Union and the need to enter a common cultural space exemplifying European values of tolerance, participation, intercultural dialogue and inclusion, SEEcult.org is an

Gorilla Highlands is an interactive electronic book about south-western Uganda developed by Studio Edirisa using Apple’s free iBooks Author software and offering more than mere tourist attractions. The landscape and people’s traditional knowledge and heritage are presented through text, videos, an extensive audio phrasebook in two local languages, interactive illustrations, photo galleries and maps. Unique in its comprehensiveness, the material collected has become an essential reference source for the Ugandan public. For the visitor, the book provides unparalleled and regularly updated travel information that opens up seldom visited places. The ebook is part of a Studio Edirisa initiative that aims at an economic and cultural transformation of south-western Uganda through cultural tourism, multimedia products, branding and promotion. Gorilla Highlands is the work of grassroots-level expert volunteers all around the world and a small dedicated local Ugandan team with limited resources. The publisher, Studio Edirisa, a multimedia social enterprise, believes that Ugandans have to appreciate their own culture and history for the country to truly prosper.

Stunning, colourful, localised, a visual feast, interactive, in-depth, are some of the ways to describe the Gorilla Highlands iPad magazine or dedicated book that lets the world know about the cultural and rich habitat of a region of Uganda. Gorilla Highlands is a perfect example of e-Content and creativity in the framework of WSIS, encouraging digital inclusion and connecting global audiences to local content.

The project has collected a treasure trove of cultural and historical data and gives special attention to cultural/community tourism. It provides unparalleled information that is regularly updated and gives the tourism industry an opportunity to showcase their services free of charge. G ­ orilla Highlands is superior to other travel guide books due to its focus, detail and the knowledge that comes from Ugandans, Uganda-based expats and expert volunteers from around the world.

Jury Comment

JUMIEGES 3D is a brand new way of visiting the Jumièges Abbey in Normandy, France. Today, the nicest ruin in France, as Victor Hugo once described it, is open to the public, but it is quite difficult to imagine its original greatness and the impressive size of a site where 1,000 monks resided, before its destruction during the French revolution. The app takes visitors back in time to show how beautiful Jumièges Abbey once was. The JUMIEGES 3D experience proposes a spectacular new way of visiting the ruins: by superimposing the Abbey as it was in five different periods of construction, thanks to augmented reality and the iPad, JUMIEGES 3D lets users meander through the ages. With mobile augmented reality, whether one is actually walking about at the site or visiting virtually thanks to a free app available on both mobiles and tablets, JUMIEGES 3D whisks the visitor into the glorious past of the Abbey from the 9th to the 18th Century, on four different points of interest. The third reconstitution is linked to more classical audio and video cultural content. This application has been downloaded thousands of time since 2012 and enjoys unprecedented success.

JUMIEGES 3D is a great application that allows people to see the J­ umièges Abbey in a way never seen before. It is an inspiration to all those who love to combine history with technology, seeing historic sites that are now in ruins in the days of their might and glory, and hearing stories that inspired the adventurers who built such monumental sites.

WHATCHADO was initiated by former classmates in Vienna, Austria, more than twenty long-time friends originating from thirteen different countries, who love to probe people about their lives. Motivated by the personal experience of great misery when stuck in a career that does not match one’s passions, WHATCHADO was created to deliver career information that matters. Many young people or career changers do not know where to begin when entering the work world for the first time or looking for new options. This is where WHATCHADO helps: in brief interviews, interested users get an insider view of the individual careers of various people from sales clerk to federal president. WHATCHADO not only explains what training you need to exercise the given job, but also what the disadvantages of such a profession may be. As an online multilingual job fair and a growing archive organized by business journalists in video format, WHATCHADO offers many advantages to companies as well. WHATCHADO was appointed European Youth Ambassador for life in 2013, giving users a real chance to find their calling.

This guide filled with life stories deals with the problems of the w­orking world in a unique way. WHATCHADO’s authentic format can be easily accessed online, making it especially attractive to young people

The Rural Visual Journalism Network, RVJN, is an innovative initiative from the Drik Picture Library Ltd. in Bangladesh which trains local correspondents to use Apple i-Pod touch technology in the production of multimedia stories from rural Bangladesh. The main goal of RVJN is to create a network of rural visual journalists who are professional photographers, NGO workers and citizen journalists trained and equipped to produce multimedia stories on governance, human rights and other related issues. The correspondents’ multimedia stories focus on addressing specific problems faced by media and rural citizens of Bangladesh. Women reporters have shown that they have a unique way of telling their stories to the world and RVJN nurtures this capacity. RVJN stories are unfiltered views on the issues that matter. To date, the programmer has trained over forty rural journalists from twenty-five districts, with over four hundred stories produced and over two hundred of these stories published on www.driknews.com and Bangla rights (www.banglarights.net) websites.

Description

Jury Comment

BlindSquare is an augmented reality GPS application for the blind and visually impaired. It builds on information about the surrounding environment obtained from the social media service Foursquare and also from Open Street Maps and transformed into an augmented reality GPS application for the blind. BlindSquare’s algorithms determine which information is most relevant and present it in voice form, using high quality speech synthesis. Apple iOS provides VoiceOver support, which enables blind people to use smart phones as long as they carry the phone in their hands all the time. However, with the use of a text-to-speech engine, BlindSquare enables speech access even if the phone is in a handbag or pocket. People with vision can also use Foursquare to assist others if needed. Most importantly, however, BlindSquare enables blind people to travel independently without help from others.

BlindSquare stands out in the use of GPS, speech technology, open data, as well as user-friendliness. The use of crowdsourced information opens new opportunities for applications in e-Inclusion and Empowerment.

Description

Jury Comment

New Urban Mechanics (NUM) is a multi-city civic innovation incubator and R&D network dedicated to improving the lives of city residents. NUM fulfils two key functions: 1. to serve as a front door for civic innovators, both inside and outside of government, who are trying to connect with local government to deliver innovative solutions to local challenges, and 2. to work as a risk aggregator by creating a safe place for government officials and their community collaborators to experiment. Each of the cities in the New Urban Mechanics Network develops a pipeline of projects that address issues relevant to their city. In Boston, the focus has been on civic engagement, while in 足Philadelphia, the focus has been on supporting civic entrepreneurs and sharing ideas. An outreach section appeals to activists interested in opening a new office in their own city.

The NUM movement takes citizen participation into the field of innovation and city services. It creates cutting-edge, peer-produced ventures bringing together diverse groups of people who improve the way cities work. This is an effective and sustainable example of civic innovation, reinventing public-private partnership for small scale projects and humane living.

Jury Comment

Internet addiction and Internet abuse is a growing concern in many countries. The OVCE.sk project (Sheeplive in English) was initiated by the civic association eSlovensko to create a prevention tool and to propagate safer Internet, mobile phone and new technologies usage. Sheeplive.eu targets the most vulnerable, namely, children and young people. For younger children, Sheeplive.eu is implemented with prevention in mind, for youth, Sheeplive.eu wittily sets a mirror to inappropriate behaviour on the Internet, while adult audiences are given the opportunity to learn. The project has two parts: a cartoon series and an Internet portal. Audio commentary for the visually-impaired and sign language for hearing-impaired children strengthen e-­Inclusion, while both Web presence, and private and public TV programs reinforce key messages. The design is user-friendly and accessible on alternative display devices, building relationships via social media. An independent survey shows: “Almost every nine year-old in Slovakia (92%) knows the Sheeplive.eu cartoon series“. A key effect: children can easily recognize messages from the stories and recall and use them in critical situations. Sheeplive.eu is available in twenty-four languages.

The Jury believes Sheeplive.eu is an extremely meaningful project, with high interactivity and social media components making it attractive to target audiences, above all, to children. The site has been visited by 5.5 million people, a demonstration of its wide acceptance and proof of its influence on the safe use of the Internet.

Producers Comment The project aims to provide all the essential information for children, teachers, parents, crime preventers and public in general about the risks the internet and new mobile technologies bring and advises them how to face and prevent them.

WSA in Sri Lanka


WSA in Sri Lanka GLOBAL CONFERENCE | Kingsbury Hotel Colombo Local Content with Global Relevance The WSA Global Congress is dedicated to innovation and the creative use of ICTs. The conference highlights that sustainable ­ ­development has to be driven by the creative use of quality content. Creativity is neither bound to being rich in terms of material goods, nor to infrastructure or existing networks. It is a “natural resource” of the human mind and it exists everywhere in the world. Bridging the digital divide is therefore also a matter of content. International and local speakers present the latest trends in e-Content and the WSA Winners 2013 showcase their awarded ­ ­solutions.

Arab e-Content Award 2013 Winners

About Arab e-Content Award: The Arab e-Content Awards (AEA) are the special selection of the best of entries in the World Summit Award from the Arab speaking countries. The awards are based on the evaluation of these entries by the Grand Jury of the WSA and a special ranking done by the special Grand Jury Panel. The Arab e-Content Awards of 2013 were supported by the United Kingdom of 足Bahrain and its e-Government Authority as part of its efforts to encourage e-Content creativity in Bahrain and Arab countries within the international initiatives to bridge the digital divide among UN member states.

It is local content, offered in the mothertongues of the people and in an easily accessible way, that makes a real difference, that brings about change and development. Apps and websites addressing local demands in a way fitting the culture and language of the place are - and will be - the most successful in the market. Social Networks connect people worldwide, made possible by shared languages. They are the tool to connect across borders and oceans. However, Social Media can also root people with their local community and help them to stay in touch with

their family and friends, even when being away from home. The goals of the AEA are to strengthen cooperation among producers from Arab speaking countries that share in the same culture and address similar markets whilst also helping innovative electronic products from this language region to achieve global recognition through qualification for the WSA.
