    The SIOC Project The SIOC Project Presentation Transcript

    • The SIOC Project: Semantically-Interlinked Online Communities John Breslin, Uldis Bojars
    • What is SIOC?
      • An effort to discover how we can create and establish ontologies on the Semantic Web
      • Aim of the SIOC ontology is to address interoperability issues on the (Social) Web
      • Adopted in a framework of 50 applications or modules deployed on over 400 sites
    • Enabling SSIS
    • Motivation
      • Need to understand how to create and establish ontologies on the Web:
        • Social engineering is required
      • Disconnected sites on the Social Web require ontologies for interoperation:
        • Lots of social data, inherent semantics (chicken and egg)
        • Potential for high impact
      • In parallel, lack of integration between social software and other systems in enterprise intranets
    •  
    •  
    • The SIOC solution
      • Develop an ontology of terms for representing rich data from the Social Web
      • Create a food chain for producing, collecting and consuming SIOC data
      • As well dissemination via papers about SIOC, provide docs and examples at sioc-project.org
      • SIOC aims to enrich the Web infrastructure:
        • During the next upgrade cycle, gigabytes of community data become available!
    • 1. The SIOC ontology
      • The main classes and properties are:
    • Interlinking with FOAF and SKOS
    • Challenges that had to be overcome
      • Earlier efforts failed to generate the momentum required to achieve successful deployment
      • If you build it, they won’t necessarily come
      • We needed some “social engineering” to facilitate the adoption of a de-facto standard ontology:
        • Model
        • Agree
        • Deploy
        • Re-model
    • 2. The SIOC food chain
    • Producing SIOC data
      • Over 20 a pplications for p roducing SIOC d ata :
        • Many are f ree and o pen s ource
        • Blogs and forums: WordPress, phpBB, Drupal, b2evolution
        • “ Legacy” applications: m ailing lists, IRC
        • New media: Twitter, Jaiku , Facebook, Flickr
      • APIs for those who may wish to make their own producers:
        • PHP, Perl, Java, Ruby on Rails
    • Using SIOC and FOAF to represent portable data
    • Collect SIOC from various sources
    • Consuming SIOC via a Sindice API
    • Consuming SIOC via Exhibit
    • 3. Dissemination
    • Publications and other outputs
      • ~25 SIOC-related publications from DERI, including the Journal of Web Semantics, IEEE Intelligent Systems, IEEE Internet Computing, European Semantic Web Conference (2)…
          • 139 papers from Google Scholar matching “sioc semantic”
      • SIOC-related tutorials at WWW2006, WWW2008, SemTech 2008 (next week); workshop at ISWC2008
      • W3C Member Submission of the SIOC ontology:
          • http://www.w3.org/Submission/2007/02/
      • Media interviews about SIOC for PC World / WashingtonPost.com, SiIicon Republic, IEEE Computer, SemanticWeb.com, etc.
    •  
    • Quotes about SIOC
      • “ I […] think the concept is HOT” – Robert Douglass, Drupal Developer
      • “ It just dawned on me that the burgeoning SIOC-o-sphere (online communities exporting and exposing content via SIOC Ontology) is actually: Blogosphere 2.0” – Kingsley Idehen, Founder and CEO of OpenLink Software
      • “ SIOC has the potential to become one of the foundational vocabularies that make Semantic Web applications useful” – Ivan Herman, W3C / ERCIM
      • “ A project that started back in 2000 called Friend-of-a-Friend (FOAF) represents relationships between people, as well as basic contact details. SIOC does this for groups: it extends the FOAF idea to being able to talk about whole groups of people. I am excited about SIOC because you can use that information to determine trust, to let people in.” – Tim Berners-Lee, Creator of the World Wide Web
    • SIOC metrics
      • SIOC documents at PTSW:
        • 107759 (SIOC)
        • 96540 (SIOC Types)
      • 42911 hits in Swoogle
      • Sites producing SIOC data:
        • 373 listed in PTSW pings
      • SIOC ontology is ranked 4 th and SIOC Types module 5 th in 500 ontologies at PTSW
      • SIOC developer mailing list:
        • 200 members
        • 900 posts
    • BSCW and BC
    • OpenLink DataSpaces
      • ODS provides access to SIOC instance data from a range of ODS application instances including blogs, wikis, aggregated feeds, shared bookmarks, discussions, photo galleries, briefcases, etc.
