SMART DIFFUSION OF GOVERNMENT CONTENTS

Elena Sánchez-Nielsen, Francisco Chávez-Gutiérrez

Abstract

Podcasting provides a new way for government agencies of any size to extend their reach and information delivery to citizens. Currently, this technology is being used as an effective and inexpensive tool to deliver audio and video content on mobile devices and personal computers. Their essence is focused on creating multimedia content for audiences that want to listen/view when they want, where they want and how they want. In this paper, we focus our vision on to distribute public hearings and sessions of parliaments in an efficient and effective way to citizens. In order to provide customized content subscriptions according to citizens’ preferences, we propose a semantic framework based on thesauri tools to describe the content of audiovisual information. In particular, we introduce three new components in traditional podcasting systems: (i) catalogue, (ii) fragmentation and (iii) customized delivery. Using these elements, we can establish how to present podcasting results according to customized user content features and how to reduce the size of multimedia segments to be downloaded and therefore, the quantity of information to be processed. This paper describes how this framework is being built on plenary sessions of the Parliament of the Canary Islands.
