Engineering a controlled natural language into semantic MediaWiki

Engineering a controlled natural language into semantic MediaWiki is a 2012 conference paper written in English by Dantuluri P., Davis B., Ludwick P., Handschuh S. and published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (including subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics).

[edit] Abstract

The Semantic Web is yet to gain mainstream recognition. In part this is caused by the relative complexity of the various semantic web formalisms, which act as a major barrier of entry to naive web users. In addition, in order for the Semantic Web to become a reality, we need semantic metadata. While controlled natural language research has sought to address these challenges, in the context of user friendly ontology authoring for domain experts, there has been little focus on how to adapt controlled languages for novice social web users. The paper describes an approach to using controlled languages for fact creation and management as opposed to ontology authoring, focusing on the domain of meeting minutes. For demonstration purposes, we developed a plug-in to the Semantic MediaWiki, which adds a controlled language editor extension. This editor aids the user while authoring or annotating in a controlled language in a user friendly manner. Controlled content is sent to a parsing service which generates semantic metadata from the sentences which are subsequently displayed and stored in the Semantic MediaWiki. The semantic metadata generated by the parser is grounded against a project documents ontology. The controlled language modeled covers a wide variety of sentences and topics used in the context of a meeting minute. Finally this paper provides a architectural overview of the annotation system.
