Semantic Wikis for Personal Knowledge Management

  title={Semantic Wikis for Personal Knowledge Management},
  author={Eyal Oren and Max V{\"o}lkel and John G. Breslin and S. Decker},
Wikis are becoming popular knowledge management tools. Analysing knowledge management requirements, we observe that wikis do not fully support structured search and knowledge reuse. We show how Semantic wikis address the requirements and present a general architecture. We introduce our SemperWiki prototype which offers advanced information access and knowledge reuse. 

On Integrating a Semantic Wiki in a Knowledge Management System

A semantic wiki editor is exploited to support document publishing by means of textual descriptions augmented by ontology-defined annotations, and documents that do not require any further activity to be profiled and included in a knowledge base as they are self-describing.

Hypertext Knowledge Workbench

Hypertext-based Knowledge Workbench offers a more powerful yet simple to use conceptual model and allows entering and using knowledge in different degrees of granularity and formality.

Personal and Shared Knowledge Building in P2P Semantic Wikis

The personal semantic annotation model is detail and its implementation in P2P semantic wikis is shown and it is shown that personal annotations demand less cognitive efforts than semantic data and are very useful to enrich the shared knowledge base.

This paper proposes the use of a Spatial Hypertext Wiki (ShyWiki) as a knowledge management wiki which allows users to interact in a distributed and collaborative way in order to generate ideas, and organize and structure knowledge.

Automatic Population and Updating of a Semantic Wiki-based Configuration Management Database

The presented solution uses technology for information gathering which is built-in or available for most current mainstream operating systems and uses Semantic Wiki technology, e.g., semantic queries and inference to handle configuration-management information.

Supporting Personal Semantic Annotations in P2P Semantic Wikis

The personal semantic annotation model is detail and its implementation in P2P semantic wikis is shown and it is shown that personal annotations demand less cognitive efforts than semantic data and are very useful to enrich the shared knowledge base.

Dynamic Queries in Semantic Wiki Systems

By enriching wiki syntax with dynamic queries semantic wikies can gather additional functionality in organizing knowledge by integrating the semantic web with fast and lightweight content management systems.

Managing requirements elicitation knowledge using a Spatial Hypertext Wiki

This chapter presents how a wiki tool called the Spatial Hypertext Wiki (ShyWiki) can be used for supporting collaborative requirements elicitation following the knowledge creation spiral of Nonaka.


An approach for automat ically generating tables for representing the seman tic data contained in wiki articles based on a simple heuristic which is th e number of properties that are shared between wiki articles.

Semantic Knowledge Management System to Support Software Engineers: Implementation and Static Evaluation through Interviews at Ericsson

In large-scale corporations in the software engineering context information overload problems occur as stakeholders continuously produce useful information on process life-cycle issues, so that decision-makers are aware of and able to act on information overload issues.



OntoWiki: community-driven ontology engineering and ontology usage based on Wikis

It is shown that standard Wiki technology can be used as an ontology development platform, reducing entry barriers for the participation of users in the creation and maintenance of ontologies, and the first OntoWiki prototype is described.

Annotation and Navigation in Semantic Wikis

An elaborate conceptual model for semantic annotations is presented, a unique and rich Wiki syntax is introduced for these annotations, and how to best formally represent the augmented Wiki content is discussed.

Towards a Wiki Interchange Format ( WIF ) Opening Semantic Wiki Content and Metadata

A wiki interchange format (WIF) that allows data exchange between wikis and related tools is defined and the linking from formal annotations to parts of a structured text is analysed and described.

Towards a Semantic Wiki Experience - Desktop Integration and Interactivity in WikSAR

WikSAR (Semantic Authoring and Retrieval within a Wiki), a prototype of a semantic Wiki, offers effortless semantic authoring and an enhancement of the Wiki interface to suggest appropriate semantic annotations to the user.

SemperWiki: a semantic personal Wiki

The application SemperWiki offers the usability of personal Wikis and the improved retrieval and querying of semantic Wikis, and provides intelligent navigation based on semantic annotations, and responds instantly to all changes.

Negotiating access within Wiki: a system to construct and maintain a taxonomy of access rules

A system automatically creates and maintains access rules in response to browsing and editing of the wiki hypertext that improves the targeting of documents in the hypertext, and identifies significant collections of documents and participants.

On cooperatively creating dynamic ontologies

The DynamOnt project has set out to develop a methodology for collaboratively creating group ontologies which evolve over time as well as in space and internal complexity and investigates the relationship between terminology and ontology.

The Wiki Way: Quick Collaboration on the Web

This book discusses the construction of Wiki, the purpose of the Wiki, and the future of Wiki as an open-source community.

Magnet: supporting navigation in semistructured data environments

A general-purpose tool is developed that offers users helpful navigation and refinement options for seeking information in semistructured repositories, and it is shown how a tool can be built without requiring domain-specific assumptions about the information being explored.
