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

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

      KiWi Vision
    • 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
    • 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

      12/03/08
      KiWi Vision
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • KiWi Applications: Wiki
    • KiWi Applications: TagIT
    • KiWi Applications: Dashboard
    • Demo!

      Conclusion & Perspectives
    • 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
    • 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:
