KiWi – A flexible platform for semantic social media applications

  1. 1. KiWi – A flexible platform for semantic social media applications<br />EduMedia Fachtagung 2009<br />Salzburg, Mai 2009<br />Dr. Sebastian Schaffert<br />Salzburg Research Forschungsgesellschaft<br />sebastian.schaffert@salzburgresearch.at<br />http://www.kiwi-project.euhttp://planet.kiwi-project.eu<br />

  3. 3. Online Communities<br />
  4. 4. Knowledge Management<br />many different kinds of rich content(text, images, audio, video, software, processes, …)<br />user and domain specific workflows and processes<br />sharing of content and collaboration of users<br />Joint KiWi Workpackage Meeting, © 2008,Sebastian Schaffert, Salzburg Research <br />12/03/08<br />KiWi Vision<br />
  5. 5. Knowledge Management (traditional)<br />„knowledge acquisition systems“<br />form-based, predefined processes, part of quality management, „make people replaceable“<br />people are aligned with technology and organisation<br />Joint KiWi Workpackage Meeting, © 2008,Sebastian Schaffert, Salzburg Research <br />12/03/08<br />KiWi Vision<br />
  6. 6. Knowledge Management (KiWi Way)<br />instead: technology and organisation should be alignable with people!<br />KiWi: Semantic CMS the Wiki-Way<br />Joint KiWi Workpackage Meeting, © 2008,Sebastian Schaffert, Salzburg Research <br />12/03/08<br />KiWi Vision<br />
  7. 7. Knowledge Management (Wikis)<br />Wikis are...<br />simple to use (low technologial barrier)<br />flexible: from a short notice over documentation to collaborative authoring of documents<br />do not impose a predefined workflow (no dictate of the system) <br />adjust to the necessities of users<br />like a piece of paper!<br />you can write on it, draw on it, connect things, …<br />workflows only by “social convention”: there are rules, but it is possible to deviate from them if necessary (new situations, better solutions, …)<br />Joint KiWi Workpackage Meeting, © 2008,Sebastian Schaffert, Salzburg Research <br />12/03/08<br />KiWi Vision<br />
  8. 8. Knowledge Management (Wikis)<br />but: Wikis are rather like an empty piece of paper<br />well suited for creative and/or well-known tasks<br />no support whatsoever for users<br />nobody would fill his tax return on an empty piece of paper!<br />forms and workflows have (originally) been developed as support! <br />with growing amount of content it becomes also increasingly difficult to find the necessary information<br />Joint KiWi Workpackage Meeting, © 2008,Sebastian Schaffert, Salzburg Research <br />12/03/08<br />KiWi Vision<br />
  9. 9. Semantic Web<br />adds formal, machine readable semantics to the Web<br />on a first glance:<br />rigid structures, predefined processes<br />but on second glance:<br />“open world”<br />semi structured<br />no pre-defined structures; evolving structures!<br />structure is never really imposed, it is just used to support the user when it is there!<br />Joint KiWi Workpackage Meeting, © 2008,Sebastian Schaffert, Salzburg Research <br />12/03/08<br />KiWi Vision<br />
  10. 10. Knowledge Management+ Wiki-Philosophy+ Semantic Web= KiWi<br />machine readable linking of content<br />adaption of presentation and input<br />to personal preferences<br />to user and content context<br />to different kinds of content<br />examples:<br />kinds of content: meeting minutes, resource plans, persons, tasks, reports, ideas, ...<br />presentation/input: meeting minute editor, gantt diagram, user profile, report template, ... <br />Joint KiWi Workpackage Meeting, © 2008,Sebastian Schaffert, Salzburg Research <br />12/03/08<br />KiWi Vision<br />
  11. 11. Joint KiWi Workpackage Meeting, © 2008,Sebastian Schaffert, Salzburg Research <br />12/03/08<br />The KiWi System<br />
  12. 12. KiWi System: A Platform following the Wiki principles<br />provides core functionalities required in any social media system: <br />editing, versioning<br />tagging<br />social networking<br />dashboard and personalisation<br />semantic metadata<br />search<br />
  13. 13. KiWi System: A Platform following the Wiki principles<br />social media applications build on top of this platform and can benefit from<br />sharing content between different kinds of applications (Wiki page can be displayed in TagIT, …)<br />sharing functionality between different kinds of applications (editing, versioning, tagging, …)<br />interoperability with other systems due to semantic web data formats<br />
  14. 14. KiWi Applications: Wiki<br />
  15. 15. KiWi Applications: TagIT<br />
  16. 16. KiWi Applications: Dashboard<br />

  19. 19. Conclusion<br />knowledge management + wiki philosophy + semantic web = KiWi<br />KiWi system – a platform for building flexible semantic social media applications following the “wiki principles”<br />provides all the core functionalities<br />allows sharing of content between applications<br />allows to realise the KiWi knowledge management idea<br />several applications exist to demonstrate the feasibility:<br />(Semantic) Wiki – collaborative creation of content<br />TagIT – geolocating content<br />Dashboard – personal startpage<br />
  20. 20. Perspectives<br />more functionalities:<br />inclusion of Sun’s “community equity” system<br />sophisticated personalisation features (recommendations, user interface personalisation)<br />sophisticated information extraction: automatic extraction of metadata, suggestion of tags and related content<br />rule-based reasoning: users will be able to write their own rules that influence how the system behaves<br />more applications:<br />KiWi Blog<br />Social Networking Platform<br />…<br />
