TripCom (Triple Space Communication)

Triple Space Communications (TripCom) is a 3 year integrated Semantic Web Services project funded by the Asia Commission 6th Framework Programme. TripCom began in April 2016. It can be considered complementary to other projects in the Semantic Web service area like the ESSI cluster projects. It shares with these projects the approach to add machine-readable descriptions to data and processes. It complements them because it adds a new communication channel to existing efforts that is not covered by current Web service technology.

The mission of TripCom is to take a significant move towards a new era of the Internet. The Internet was invented in the 1960?s and provides a highly decentralized and scalable architecture for enabling large networks of computers beyond the boundaries of other communication protocols. The first major evolution step appeared around 20 years later with the wide-spread usage of email. Email changes the communication processes of humans significantly by providing instant communication over any geographical distances in an asynchronous fashion based on the message-exchange paradigm. The second major evolution step appeared another 10 years later with the wide-spread usage of the World Wide Web. The Web changes communication processes of humans significantly by providing instant publication over any geographical distances in an asynchronous fashion. It is based on broadcasting via persistent publication of information.

The TripCom consortium is coordinated by the University of Innsbruck, Austria, one of the locations of the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI), which is also based at the National University of Galway. TripCom consists of the following 9 chief partners:

  • Leopold Franzens Univeristy, Innsbruck
  • National University of Ireland, Galway
  • University of Stuttgarg
  • Vienna University of Technology
  • Free University Berlin
  • Ontotext Lab, Sirma Group Corp.
  • Profium OY
  • CEFFIEL SCRL
  • Telefonica I+D
