Thinking about interlinking data contexts

Time to remind the project statement. To build a semantic profiling framework to support the connection of researchers. The main use case and application that the framework has to support is illustrated by what could be called: “the conference case”. Scientists and researchers are interested in very specific topics, this is best verified by the conferences they are attending. Another trend is that they all blog and tweet about these events. This creates huge opportunities for profiling. The attendees tweet about what they notice, what they remark as interesting for their own projects. What if we could connect these users using this information? We could call an application that does just that “Scientific Profiling“. This approach comes from the concept that the data produced in social networks can have true value if properly annotated and interlinked. A second requirement is to create a suitable context in which this information can get meaning. This is very important to identify which ontologies should be used. Read more of this post

Towards semantically-interlinked online communities

In this article Breslin et al. presented different types of online communities and tools that were at that time used to build and support online communities. As I discovered and stated in previous posts, those communities are islands that are not interlinked. The authors als presented the SIOC ontology. The goal of SIOC (Semantically-Interlinked Online Communities) is to interconnect these online communities. Community sites can include many discussion primitives, such as bulletin boards, weblogs and mailing lists, which are grouped under the concept of forum.

Interlinking the social web with semantics

In this project, I will analyze the semantics in twitter feeds and the profile of a user. To gain more insight in the relation between the current semantic web and social web, I searched for some relevant articles. In this post I write a summary of the article by Bojars et al. titled “Interlinking the social web with semantics”.
