We describe an example of PARC’s innovation services for corporate clients. The project was undertaken for Dai Nippon Printing Co. Ltd. (DNP), to assist them in developing a new opportunity beyond their traditional printing business. The Magitti solution*, developed at PARC in close collaboration with DNP personnel, was designed to be synergistic with DNP’s existing strengths in the publishing industry whilst incorporating the latest in context- and activity-aware computing techniques to recommend published content.

We also discuss ways in which new techniques and technologies were successfully transferred to DNP.
