  • 3. Online Communities
  • 4. Knowledge Management
    many different kinds of rich content(text, images, audio, video, software, processes, …)
    user and domain specific workflows and processes
    sharing of content and collaboration of users

    KiWi Vision
  • 5. Knowledge Management (traditional)
    „knowledge acquisition systems“
    form-based, predefined processes, part of quality management, „make people replaceable“
    people are aligned with technology and organisation

  • 6. Knowledge Management (KiWi Way)
    instead: technology and organisation should be alignable with people!

  • 7. Knowledge Management (Wikis)
    Wikis are...
    simple to use (low technologial barrier)
    flexible: from a short notice over documentation to collaborative authoring of documents
    do not impose a predefined workflow (no dictate of the system)
    adjust to the necessities of users
    like a piece of paper!
    you can write on it, draw on it, connect things, …
    workflows only by “social convention”: there are rules, but it is possible to deviate from them if necessary (new situations, better solutions, …)

    KiWi Vision
  • 8. Knowledge Management (Wikis)
    but: Wikis are rather like an empty piece of paper
    well suited for creative and/or well-known tasks
    no support whatsoever for users
    nobody would fill his tax return on an empty piece of paper!
    forms and workflows have (originally) been developed as support!
    with growing amount of content it becomes also increasingly difficult to find the necessary information

    KiWi Vision
  • 9. Semantic Web
    adds formal, machine readable semantics to the Web
    on a first glance:
    rigid structures, predefined processes
    but on second glance:
    “open world”
    semi structured
    no pre-defined structures; evolving structures!
    structure is never really imposed, it is just used to support the user when it is there!

    KiWi Vision
  • 10. Knowledge Management+ Wiki-Philosophy+ Semantic Web= KiWi
    machine readable linking of content
    adaption of presentation and input
    to personal preferences
    to user and content context
    to different kinds of content
    examples:
    kinds of content: meeting minutes, resource plans, persons, tasks, reports, ideas, ...
    presentation/input: meeting minute editor, gantt diagram, user profile, report template, ...

    The KiWi System
  • 12. KiWi System: A Platform following the Wiki principles
    provides core functionalities required in any social media system:
    editing, versioning
    tagging
    social networking
    dashboard and personalisation
    semantic metadata
    search
  • 13. KiWi System: A Platform following the Wiki principles
    social media applications build on top of this platform and can benefit from
    sharing content between different kinds of applications (Wiki page can be displayed in TagIT, …)
    sharing functionality between different kinds of applications (editing, versioning, tagging, …)
    interoperability with other systems due to semantic web data formats
  • 14. KiWi Applications: Wiki
  • 15. KiWi Applications: TagIT
  • 16. KiWi Applications: Dashboard
  • 17. Demo!

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