Mature - a dynamic perspective on ontologies

  1. 1. MATURE: a dynamic perspective on ontologies Simone Braun FZI Research Center for Information Technologies http://mature-ip.eu OntoContent-QSI Workshop 2008 November 10, 2008
  2. 2. FP7 EU Integrated Project (04/08 – 03/12) Coordinator Application Partners Research & Technology Partners MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 2
  3. 3. Motivation Agility of enterprises as a key success factor requires • Leveraging the employees‘ creativity and hands-on experience • Improving the sharing of knowledge within and across company borders • Support with a new form of organizational guidance Instead of top-down approaches we need a balance of top-down and bottom-up developments for learning support • Bring together the efficiency of organizations and the engagement and user empowerment MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 3
  4. 4. Knowledge Maturing Process Model MATURE - Continuous Social Based on Knowledge Networks and [Maier & Schmidt, 2007] Learning in [Schmidt, 2005] 4
  5. 5. Knowledge Maturing Process Model New ideas are developed by individuals From personal experiences or in highly informal discussions MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 5
  6. 6. Knowledge Maturing Process Model Exchange of ideas & personal experiences Development of common terminology; e.g. in discussion forum entries or wikis MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 6
  7. 7. Knowledge Maturing Process Model Purpose-driven structured documents are created e.g. project reports or process models MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 7
  8. 8. Knowledge Maturing Process Model Pedagogical preparation of the material for broader dissemination e.g. service instructions or manuals MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 8
  9. 9. Knowledge Maturing Process Model Individual learning objects are put together to cover broader subject area Subject area becomes teachable to novices MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 9
  10. 10. Different Types of Knowledge process maturing MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 10
  11. 11. Approach More participation! • Knowledge maturing is an active & collaborative process • Reduce motivational, conceptual & technical barriers Management & guidance as • „providing the environment & framework“ • „gardening“ MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 11
  12. 12. Example: Competence Ontology Development Employees annotate each other with any topic tag new topic ideas emerge; e.g. describing recent/specific ones MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 12
  13. 13. Example: Competence Ontology Development A common topic terminology evolves through the collaborative (re-)usage of the topic tags Topic tags are defined and refined, useless or incorrect ones are rejected MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 13
  14. 14. Example: Competence Ontology Development Special community members begin to organize the topic terminology into competencies Introduction of relations between topic tags o OO-Programming <is superconcept of> Java-Programming o Java-Programming <is related to> C#-Programming 14
  15. 15. Example: Competence Ontology Development Adding axioms for exploiting relationships for reasoning especially precise generalisation & composition relationships o Java Programming <is a> OO Programming o {Java Programming Expert, AJAX Programming Beginner} <is part of> GWT- Programming Intermediate 15
  16. 16. SOBOLEO MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 16
  17. 17. Tools Personal learning environments • Bundling of loosely coupled tools & services into flexible tool boxes that support individual learning • Integration following the mashup paradigm • „personal“ and „social“ Organizational learning environments • Role of gardening • Analysis & visualization • Intervention MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 17
  18. 18. The MATURE Vision
  19. 19. Objectives an analysis of real-world maturing practices knowledge maturing & development of a reference model the methodical conception of tools supporting learning development of reusable technical services the accompanying, early formative evaluation of approaches (concepts, design studies, prototypes) with endusers MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks 19
