User Interfaces for Personal Knowledge Management with Semantic Technologies

  title={User Interfaces for Personal Knowledge Management with Semantic Technologies},
  author={H. Haller},
This thesis describes iMapping and QuiKey, two novel user interface concepts for dealing with structured information. iMapping is a visual knowledge mapping technique based on zooming, which combines the advantages of several existing approaches and scales up to very large maps. QuiKey is a text-based tool to interact with graph-structured knowledge bases with very high interaction efficiency. Both tools have been implemented and positively evaluated in user studies. 
Knowledge-based engineering in the context of railway design by integrating BIM, BPMN, DMN and the methodology for knowledge-based engineering applications (MOKA)
This paper proposes the use of Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) to automate routine design tasks by considering multiple knowledge sources and shows that time savings of up to 97.5% can be achieved in the execution of the KBE application. Expand

Designing a Knowledge Mapping Tool for Knowledge Workers
Main GUI principles of the iMapping knowledge mapping and interaction design are elaborate, allowing for user-friendly articulation, semantic annotation and interlinking of personal knowledge, as well as its gradual semantic enrichment. Expand
iMapping: a zooming user interface approach for personal and semantic knowledge management
First experimental evaluation of the iMapping user-interface approach indicates favorable user experience and functionality, compared with state-of-the-art Mind-Mapping software. Expand
iMapping Wikis - Towards a Graphical Environment for Semantic Knowledge Management
The iMapping approach in general is described, and briefly how it will be applied as a rich client front-end to the SemWiki engine is described. Expand
QuiKey - An Efficient Semantic Command Line
QuiKey is an interaction approach that offers interactive fine grained access to structured information sources in a light weight user interface. It is designed to be highly interaction efficient forExpand
A Graphical Workbench for Knowledge Workers
iMapping bridges the gap between unstructured content (like informal text notes) and semantic models by allowing to easily create on-the-fly annotations with the whole range of content links, from vague associations to formal relationships. Expand
Personal Knowledge Models with Semantic Technologies
Conceptual Data Structures (CDS) is a unified meta-model for representing knowledge cues in varying degrees of granularity, structuredness, and formality. CDS consists of: (1) A simple, expressiveExpand
Conceptual Data Structure Tools
This project deliverable presents the idea of Conceptual Data Structures (CDS), a unifying data model for end-user semantic personal knowledge management, and describes two main user interface prototypes based on the CDS framework and their evaluations. Expand
iMapping — a Graphical Approach to Semi-Structured Knowledge Modelling
iMapping is a technique for visually structuring information objects. It supports the full range from informal note taking over semi-structured personal information management to formal knowledgeExpand
Conceptual data structures for personal knowledge management
The unified data model (CDS) is capable of representing structures from various information tools, including documents, file systems, hypertext, tagging and mind maps, and can be a way to make PKM tools interoperable. Expand
