iFanzy is a personalized TV guide application aiming at offering users television content in a personalized and context-sensitive way. It consists of a client-server system with multiple clients and devices such that the user can ubiquitously use TV set-top box, mobile phone and Web-based applications to select and receive personalised TV content. TV content and background data from various heterogeneous sources is integrated to provide a transparent knowledge structure, which allows the user to navigate and browse the vast content sets nowadays available. Semantic Web techniques are applied for enriching and aligning Web data and (live) broadcast content. The resulting RDF/OWL knowledge structure is the basis for iFanzy’s main functionality, like semantic search of the broadcast content and execution of context-sensitive recommendations.
