The increasing availability of (digital) cultural heritage artefacts offers great potential for increased access to art content, but also necessitates tools to help users deal with such abundance of information. User-adaptive art recommender systems aim to present their users with art content tailored to their interests. These systems try to adapt to the(More)

Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (short: GLAMs) around the globe are beginning to explore the potential of crowdsourcing, i. e. outsourcing specific activities to a community though an open call. In this paper, we propose a typology of these activities, based on an empirical study of a substantial amount of projects initiated by relevant cultural(More)

The paper describes an ontology-based approach for integrating interactive user modeling and learning content management to deal with typical adaptation problems, such as cold start and dynamics of the user’s knowledge, in the context of the Semantic Web. An integrated OntoAIMS system is presented and its viability discussed based on user studies. The work(More)
In this paper we discuss how ontology concepts can be beneficial for a flexible and semantic rich description of the authoring process and for the provision of authoring support of Intelligent Educational Systems (IES) with respect to three main authoring tasks: domain editing, course sequencing and resource management. We take a semantic perspective on the(More)
This article presents the CHIP demonstrator for providing personalized access to digital museum collections. It consists of three main components: Art Recommender, Tour Wizard, and Mobile Tour Guide. Based on the semantically-enriched Rijksmuseum Amsterdam collection, we show how Semantic Web technologies can be deployed to (partially) solve three important(More)
In this article we describe a Semantic Web application for semantic annotation and search in large virtual collections of cultural-heritage objects, indexed with multiple vocabularies. During the annotation phase we harvest, enrich and align collection metadata and vocabularies. The semantic-search facilities support keyword-based queries of the graph(More)
