Agrorama, Green Hackathon, Dec 16 2012 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. AgroramaHacking around Semantic Mediawiki for the agro-community Nikos Manolis Tasos Koutoumanos AgroKnow Technologies Green Hackathon Athens, Dec 14-16 2012
  • 2. The opportunity● Greeks feel the urge to become (real) farmers again!● They consider working with new plants and crops!● They do it all over the country, in big and small fields, on the mountains, by the sea, in the sea!● They want to integrate technology in their business!● They consider organic and sustainable methods!
  • 3. Some threats● Farmers are working disconnected from each other.● New farmers cannot draw on existing experience.● New methods and crops dont allow for big communities.● Knowledge related to farming is tacit by nature.
  • 4. The motivation An interesting site for farmers of “sea-berry” or “seabuckthor” or “hippophae” or AgroVoc-15770 :-) Very difficult to maintain, the manager of the site needs to collect descriptions, edit them and publish them one-by-one...
  • 5. An idea for hacking● Bring-in knowledge with a more efficient way● Make this information more meaningful● Allow for more links between information● Give semantics to these links! hack it easy! choose the route of least effort
  • 6. MediaWiki● Powering WIKIPEDIA ▪ Almost all of us have used it for viewing information ▪ Some have used it for providing or editing information● Open Source, very well supported● Easy to deploy, easy to use● Light on resources, especially on the client side – old browsers, mobile interfaces, etc.
  • 7. Semantic MediaWiki● Wikis - a great tool for collecting and sharing knowledge.● But, they are less useful for getting queried or aggregated information. As a simple example, consider the following question: ▪ «What are common problems for sea-berries farms by the sea, during October?»
  • 8. A short demo...
  • 9. Whats next - milestonesM1: Wiki is used mainly for collecting knowledge. The web manager then publishes it on the web siteM2:​ Connect to the LOD cloudM3: Wiki is also used for sharing knowledgeM4: Web services allow for interesting representations of dataM5: More social features for the community
