Wikipedia and the Semantic Web The Missing Links ?

  title={Wikipedia and the Semantic Web The Missing Links ?},
  author={Markus Kr{\"o}tzsch and Denny Vrande{\vc}i{\'c} and Max V{\"o}lkel},
Wikipedia is the biggest collaboratively created source of encyclopaedic knowledge. Growing beyond the borders of any traditional encyclopaedia, it is facing new problems of knowledge management: The current excessive usage of article lists and categories witnesses the fact that 19th century content organization technologies like inter-article references and indices are no longer sufficient for today’s needs. Rather, it is necessary to allow knowledge processing in a computer assisted way, for…

Making More Wikipedians: Facilitating Semantics Reuse for Wikipedia Authoring

An integrated solution to make Wikipedia authoring easier based on RDF graph matching is proposed, expecting making more Wikipedians and enhancing the current Wikipedia to make it an even better Semantic Web data source.

Applying Wikipedia to Interactive Information Retrieval

Wikipedia can be applied effectively to open-domain information retrieval with minimal natural language processing or information extraction, and a large thesaurus-like structure can be obtained directly from Wikipedia, and accurate measures of semantic relatedness can be efficiently mined from it.

Semantic Wikipedia

This work provides an extension to be integrated in Wikipedia, that allows even casual users the typing of links between articles and the specification of typed data inside the articles, and gives direct access to the formalised knowledge.

Open semantic hyperwikis

An extensive model for a ‘open semantic hyperwiki’ system is specified, based around first-class links with support for transclusion and advanced functional link types, with defined semantics for the role of versioning and parametric nodes in the linked data world, while mindful to preserve the core simplicity that allows non-expert users to contribute.

Semantic Data Extraction from Infobox Wikipedia Template

The DBpedia project focus on creating semantically enriched structured information of Wikipedia is described and clarified and the output data is in RDF (Resource Description Framework) triple format which is the basic technology used for building the semantic web.

Mining Meaning from Wikipedia

A Model for Open Semantic Hyperwikis

A model for a system, which has been developed and is prototyped and is evaluating, which reintroduces ideas from the field of hypertext to help alleviate the burden of collaborative editing on wikis, and provides first-class links, transclusion, and generic links.

What Have Innsbruck and Leipzig in Common? Extracting Semantics from Wiki Content

This article presents a method for revealing structured content by extracting information from template instances, and suggests ways to efficiently query the vast amount of extracted information, leading to astonishing query answering possibilities.

Semantic Wikis in Knowledge Management: Evaluating the Gnowsis Approach

A user evaluation should show to what extent the collaboration of Gnowsis and Kaukolu can help the user to manage his personal information according to his very own desires and without further restrictions by any software.

SweetWiki: semantic web enabled technologies in Wiki

In SweetWiki, SweetWiki integrates a standard WYSIWYG editor that was extended to support semantic annotation following the "social tagging" and reused a web-based editor available in the underlying semantic web server to edit semantic web ontologies and annotations.



Semantic authoring and retrieval within a Wiki

A prototype web application - the SHAWN Wiki - helps the user in this task by facilitating semantically structured content creation in an effortless and usable manner.

Owl web ontology language guide

This document demonstrates the use of the OWL language to formalize a domain by defining classes and properties of those classes, define individuals and assert properties about them, and reason about these classes and individuals to the degree permitted by the formal semantics of theOWL language.

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.

Managing multiple and distributed ontologies on the Semantic Web

This article presents an integrated framework for managing multiple and distributed ontologies on the Semantic Web, based on the representation model for ontologies, trading off between expressivity and tractability.

ORAKEL: A Natural Language Interface to an F-Logic Knowledge Base

RAKEL is a natural language interface which translates wh-questions into logical queries and evaluates them with respect to a given knowledge base and makes use of a compositional approach in order to construct the semantics of a wh-question.

The Description Logic Handbook: Theory, Implementation, and Applications

This new edition of The Description Logic Handbook provides a thorough account of the subject, covering all aspects of research in this field, namely: theory, implementation, and applications.

Rdf vocabulary description language 1.0 : Rdf schema
