    Semantics To The Bookmarks: A Review of Social Semantic Bookmarking Systems Semantics To The Bookmarks: A Review of Social Semantic Bookmarking Systems Presentation Transcript

    • Semantics to the Bookmarks: A Review of Social Semantic Bookmarking Systems Simone Braun, Claudiu Schora, Valentin Zacharias
    • This Presentation • Goal: An overview of the state of the art in Social Semantic Bookmarking • Part 1: Introducing Social Semantic Bookmarking • Part 2: Social Semantic Bookmarking Systems • Part 3: Some Important Differentiating Dimensions
    • Part 1: Introducing Social Semantic Bookmarking • Part 1.1: Social Bookmarking Systems • Part 1.2: Semantic Annotation Systems • Part 1.3: Social Semantic Bookmarking
    • Social Bookmarking, Definition • Bookmark: Manually created reference to (internet) content deemed interesting • (Linguistic) Tag: Arbitrary keyword assigned to an entity (e.g. bookmark) to aid in management and retrieval • Social Bookmarking Site: Website facilitating discovery of interesting content & persons through shared tags and bookmarks
    • Social Bookmarking – Advantages & Disadvantages • Advantages: Lightweight, easy to use, adaptable, no setup, proven – used by millions of users. • Disadvantages: – Lack of precision due to (Mis-)Spelling, Polysemy, Homonymy – Lack of recall due to Multilingualism, Synonymy, Basic Level Phenomena
    • Semantic Annotation, Definition • Annotation: An addition made to an entity to aid management, retrieval etc. • Semantic Annotation: OntoMat An annotation done using a term described with some background knowledge – (usually contained in an ontology) – e.g. its relation to other terms
    • Semantic Annotation – Advantages & Disadvantages • Advantages: – Better Retrieval due to explicitly represented concept relations  improving query and browse functionality – Better Use Of Annotation due to standardized languages and machine understandable annotations  allow for better interoperability between systems
    • Semantic Annotation – Advantages & Disadvantages • Disadvantages: – High Cost: Ontologies are usually created by highly paid knowledge engineers that also first need to learn about the domain – Low Appropriateness due to the technical, personal and temporal separation between creation and use of ontology heavyweight process large upfront investment high time lack between concept emergence and inclusion in ontology errors due to limited domain understanding of knowledge engineers
    • Social Bookmarking vs. Semantic Annotation • Social Bookmarking lacks semantic precision and recall • Semantic Annotation stumbles because of the separation between creation and use of the semantic model • Social Semantic Bookmarking combines the advantages of both while avoiding the problems
    • Social Semantic Bookmarking Combines these paradigms • by allowing lightweight and social organization of bookmarks • with tags extended by semantic definitions and descriptions • that also evolve (collaboratively) within the same system
    • Part 2: Social Semantic Bookmarking Systems • BibSonomy • ZigTag • SOBOLEO • Faviki • Fuzzzy • gnizr • GroupMe • Annotea • Twine
    • BibSonomy • System for the management of internet resources and publication entries, tailored towards academics • Created by the University Kassel • Extends the tag model with relations between tags Try it at: http://www.bibsonomy.org/ No Installation
    • SOBOLEO • SOBOLEO: SOcial BOokmarking and Lightweight Engineering of Ontologies • Social Semantic Bookmarking System created by FZI • Allows simple tags but also concepts with multiple labels, relations etc. • Supports a community of practice in the joint structuring of Try it at: a domain. http://tool.soboleo.com/ No Registration, No Installation
    • Fuzzzy • Manages bookmarks of internet resources, ISBN numbers, media files and geographic locations • Developed at the University of Oslo • Allows a large number of relations between tags • Unique in that it allows voting on all aspects of the semantic model to facilitate gardening Try it at: http://www.fuzzzy.com No Installation
    • GroupMe! • Bookmarking of web resources with ‘tag groups’ as additional structure • Created by the University of Hannover • Additional focus on making bookmarks of multimedia resources more easily accessible Try it at: http://groupme.org/ No Installation
    • Twine • Organizing and sharing of bookmarks of web pages, images, videos, products and books • Commercial product developed by Radar Networks • Main ordering principle “Twine” – kind of user interest group. Tags related through use in same Twine • Extensive use of automatic classification to reduce tagging effort Try it at: http://www.twine.com No Installation
    • ZigTag • Organizes bookmarks of internet resources • Commercially run by a small Canadian company • Allows the users to choose from a given list of tags (‘ZigTags’) with a specific meaning • Sets ‘ZigTags’ automatically into Try it at: relation http://www.zigtag.com No Installation
    • Faviki • Manages bookmarks of internet resources • Developed by Serbian Web designer Vuc Milicic • Unique in that it relies on Wikipedia articles as tags • Uses DBpedia to support multilinguality Try it at: http://www.faviki.com No Installation
    • Part 3: (Some) Important Differentiating Dimensions • Part 3.1: Tag Relations • Part 3.2: Semantic Consistency • Part 3.3: Use of Semantics • Part 3.4: Export & Interoperability
    • Tag Relations • All analyzed systems provide support for relations between tags • Only SOBOLEO, Fuzzzy and BibSonomy allow explicitly user created relations • For Twine and GroupMe! tag relations are indirectly affected by users creating collections
    • Semantic Consistency • Structure is local, i.e. only usable by the user that created it (BibSonomy) • Global structure is maintained collectively according to Wiki principle (SOBOLEO, Fuzzzy) • Global structure is only indirectly computed from user actions (GroupMe!, Twine) • Global structure is imported or only edited by administrators (ZigTag, Faviki)
    • Use of Semantics • Additional semantics is mainly used to support tag-based navigation • As far as we know, no inferencing engine is used • Integrating semantics into keyword based search is an area of current active development (e.g. Faviki, SOBOLEO, Twine)
    • Export & Interoperability • Data Exchange and Interoperability main promise of Semantic (Web) Technologies • All systems support some kind of export functionality, but varied and incompatible formats (BURST, SWRC, XTM, DCMI, SKOS, SCOT ..) • Promise of interoperability currently not realized, but active area with CommonTag as format that could make interoperability possible
    • Summary • Social Semantic Bookmarking Systems combine Social Bookmarking and Semantic Annotation – by allowing lightweight, flexible annotation – but also more complex and formal description of tags – wich evolve (collaboratively) within the same system
    • Summary • At least seven such systems are actively developed: BibSonomy, SOBOLEO, Fuzzzy, GroupMe!, Twine, ZigTag and Faviki • Import differentiating dimension and areas of current development are: – kind of relations – edit scopes – the use of the semantics – export formats
