  • - The Social Semantic Web, has the potential to create a network of interlinked and semantically enriched user-generated knowledge-base, bringing together applications and social features of the Social Web with knowledge representation languages and formats from the Semantic Web. - Various vocabularies, or ontology languages, can be used to interlink and aggregate Social Web content, e.g. SIOC and FOAF.
  • To “semantically-interlink online communities”.To fully describe the content and structure of community sites.To create new connections between online posts, items and forums.To enable the integration of online community information.To browse connected Social Web items in interesting and innovative ways
  • Exploring the ways in which Semantic Web technologies and ontologies, such as SIOC and FOAF, in conjunction with news representation standards, such as rNews, could assist in the process of interlinking online user communities and the UGC for news gathering and verification. - Considers extending/customising SIOC for its utilisation in journalism and the news industry. - This work would take into consideration the existing work on the use of the Social Web in the media industry (such as Storyful and NewsWhip) and also the standardisation work such as rNews.- This work does not intend to re-invent the wheel, but to use best practice in the realm of the Semantic and Social Web in conjunction with journalism, news and the media industry for achieving a more coherent way for newsgathering and verification.

  • Traditional JournalismDigital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ie Enabling Networked Knowledge
  • Everything is getting SocialDigital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ie  User Generated Content is changing the way news stories are produced. Enabling Networked Knowledge
  • Journalism TodayDigital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ie  The audience - citizen journalists - are now a readily available source of news.  The UGC comes from variety of Social Web sources, e.g. Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Flickr, YouTube, blogs, etc.  Vast amount of the UGC could be produced in the event of a breaking news. Enabling Networked Knowledge
  • UGCDigital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ie  The UGC is even more important when broadcasters have to rely mostly on the Social Web as journalists are restricted to work in certain countries or where there is a danger for them.  The UGC producers would have to spend a considerable amount of time searching, compiling and verifying the material received on  Speed is a killer when the Social Web. there is a breaking news! Enabling Networked Knowledge
  • Sources to be processedDigital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ie Enabling Networked Knowledge
  • ChallengesDigital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ie  Navigation of data: platforms are not connected and communities are often disparate.  The manual process of checking through UGC is overwhelming and inadequate.  This information lacks exchangeable semantics and thus is not as usable as it can be for creating trustworthy news stories.  Vetting process. Enabling Networked Knowledge
  • Digital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ie The Social Semantic web Enabling Networked Knowledge
  • We need a way to connect these islandsDigital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ie Semantic Web Enabling Networked Knowledge
  • Semantic WebDigital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ie  The WEB is a network of interlinked Documents accessed via the Internet.  Hyperlinks connect these documents  The SEMANTIC WEB is an extension of the current Web, which is about interlinking THINGS. Current Web vs. Semantic Web Unstructured Data Structured Data Web of Documents Web of Data Enabling Networked Knowledge
  • Aims of the Semantic WebDigital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ie  Bridging the gap between a Web of Documents to a Web of Data, with typed objects and typed relationships.  Adding machine-readable metadata to existing content, so that information can be parsed, queried and reused.  Defining shared semantics for this metadata to allow interoperability between applications.  Enabling machine-readable knowledge at Web scale, making information more easy to find and process. Enabling Networked Knowledge
  • Social Semantic WebDigital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ie Bringing the Social web to its full potential Enabling Networked Knowledge
  • Semantic Interlinking OfDigital Enterprise Research Institute Online Community Sites www.deri.ie  An effort from DERI to discover how we can create and establish ontologies on the Semantic Web  Goal of the SIOC ontology is to address interoperability issues on the (Social) Web  Just won the 7-year impact award at Extended Semantic Web Conference 2012.  http://sioc-project.org Enabling Networked Knowledge

  • Future ResearchDigital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ie  Literature review on the current utilisation of the Social Web within the news industry.  Literature review on the ways in which Semantic Web technologies have been implemented within the news industry.  Evaluating existing relevant ontologies and data standards within a journalistic context.  Determining what existing Semantic Web tools can be integrated into this project.  Defining a set of contextual factors for assessing trust levels.  Proposing a standard for integration and display of semantically enriched social media content.  Integration with Schema.org Enabling Networked Knowledge
