Semantic SharePoint - Automatic Tagging - Better Search

  1. 1. Semantic SharePoint Technical Briefing Helmut Nagy, Semantic Web Company Tibor Gal-Bancsi, iQuest Thomas Wittig, iQuest Andreas Blumauer, Semantic Web Company
  2. 2. What is Semantic SP? 1. a joint venture between iQuest and Semantic Web Company, initiated in 2012 2. a bundle of web parts to make a SharePoint server ‘smarter’ 3. an architecture to link and mash content from SharePoint with content from other sources 4. ‘smartness’ is based on semantic technologies: – – – – – automatic text analytics automatic semantic annotation (‘PowerTagging’) semantic search automatic content linking & enrichment 360O views: knowledge through information integration
  3. 3. Why is Semantic SP important? 1. a ‘document’ is no longer the only source of knowledge in a typical intranet 2. to generate new knowledge, information from various sources has to be linked and integrated 3. smart content management has become an important issue in many knowledge-intensive industries 4. information retrieval systems have increasing demand for better precision and recall of search results 5. need for facilitated access to complex content through context information
  4. 4. Architecture (High-Level) SharePoint serves as content source and as presentation layer Presentation Layer Semantic Knowledge Base Power Tagging Taxonomy Import ...

  5. 5. Use Cases & example applications • Business dashboards: Integrated views over business objects • Dynamic Matchmaking: Find experts in a company based on content they have created • Q&A machines: Provide facilities to answer complex queries; combine information from documents with data from databases • …
  6. 6. PowerTagging - Overview The PowerTagging integration adds the following features: • Automatic and manual tagging of SharePoint list items and uploaded documents • Enrichment of the SharePoint search index based on the tagged content. The search index can be enriched by: • labels of tagged concepts • relations of tagged concepts and their labels (top concepts, broader concepts, related concepts)
  7. 7. PowerTagging - Configuration • Basic tagging configuration is done on Site Collection level • Configuration can be modified on Site level • Tagging can be configured per List/App for a SharePoint Site • Search Enrichment configuration is done on Site Collection level • Semantic meta-information to be added to the search index can be defined • Information can be written to more than one custom field
  8. 8. PowerTagging - Tagging • Tagging is done automatically when content is created • Tagging for content items can later be reviewed and manually refined • Additional tags can be added manually on demand
  9. 9. PowerTagging - Search Based on the search enrichment the following features are available: • Autocomplete • Additional search navigators based on thesaurus structure • Query expansion All features can be configured (e.g. number of results for autocomplete) in the search web part configuration.
  10. 10. Semantic Knowledge Base The Semantic Knowledge Base web part allows to browse a semantic knowledge graph or an enterprise vocabulary within SharePoint and offers the following features: • Search including autocomplete • Tree View • List View • Configurable Details View including • Map view • Images
  11. 11. Semantic Knowledge Base The Semantic Knowledge Base web part is highly configurable: • PoolParty Server & Knowledge graph to be used • Default language • Default search behaviour • Default view • Limit results • Properties to be displayed • Order of Properties • Display image • Display map
  12. 12. Taxonomy Import PoolParty knowledge graphs can be imported into the SharePoint Term Store to be used for SharePoint’s native tagging feature. In addition, also a thesaurus that can be used to expand search queries with synonyms can be imported
  13. 13. Taxonomy Import PoolParty supports the export of vocabularies and knowledge graphs in SharePoint format via Custom Reports. • • Managed metadata Import file format Create and deploy a thesaurus in SharePoint “PoolParty Custom Reports” is a generic feature of PoolParty Thesaurus Server which allows the creation of customized exports of data selected by SPARQL queries and formatted as needed by using templates.
