(a) EMichaelMaximilien / Nicolas Rouquette / Denise Bedford / Peter P. Yim - tagging the Ontolog (knowledge repository) content - plans for two technical discussions - see discussion thread:     (1E31)

    • Discussion:     (1E33A)
      • Mills / Conor: we'll keep the SWIM-WG people informed ... to explore collaboration     (1E33A1)
      • Roy: faceted-wikis and faceted-classification ... just trying to sync up     (1E33A2)
      • Denise: let's make sure we understand each other properly in definitions     (1E33A3)
      • Peter: we are just trying to plan out two meeting today ... not supposed to discuss content ... so, 2 minutes each.     (1E33A4)
      • Nicolas: want to know (a) what we want to tag, (b) how to classify (e.g. some architecture, UIMA, etc.), (c) what tools are available to help us do it, and (d) how to extract more knowledge from the tagged content     (1E33A5)
      • Max: already tagging ontolog contents - using (folksonomy creation Web site and service). Using the Firefox plugin this is relatively easy. Just click on the purple tags on the Wiki page for a section of the page that you want to tag and click on the Firefox button (tag like button next to the URL link). After you are logged in to (which is free) you will be prompted to enter comments and list of tags. Et voila! If we distribute the work and get enough support on this, we should converge fairly quickly with a bag of tags; and bring back the tags (with, say javascript) to our wiki page. We can do analysis on the content using the Web service API... etc. after that     (1E33A6)
      • Jack: work at SRI - federating cultures ... means to bring together folksonomies, ontologies, topic maps, ....     (1E33A7)
      • Conor: using the wiki to establish context; how do we attach that to existing ontologies?; doing that in an eco-system, ...     (1E33A8)
      • Rex: offer another wiki for experimentation - the HUMANML wiki ...     (1E33A9)
      • Denise: the World Bank is using commercial tools to capture meta-data (about 1.5 million doc't, different languages; done very quickly). Has tried folksonomy approaches and failed miserably. To read up more, google "denise bedford"     (1E33A10)
      • Ed: request Denise to give us more info on her wiki page     (1E33A11)
