Implementing an automated ventilation guideline using the semantic wiki KnowWE Lecture Notes in Computer Science English 2012 In this paper, we report on the experiences made during the implementation of a therapeutic process, i.e. a guideline, for automated mechanical ventilation of patients in intensive care units. The semantic wiki KnowWE was used as a collaborative development platform for domain specialists, knowledge and software engineers, and reviewers. We applied the graphical guideline language DiaFlux to represent medical expertise about mechanical ventilation in a flowchart-oriented manner. Finally, the computerized guideline was embedded seamlessly into a mechanical ventilator for autonomous execution. 0 0
Engineering intelligent systems on the knowledge formalization continuum Knowledge acquisition
Knowledge engineering
Semantic wiki
International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science English 2011 In spite of their industrial success, the development of intelligent systems is still a complex and risky task. When building intelligent systems, we see that domain knowledge is often present at different levels of formalization-ranging from text documents to explicit rules. In this paper, we describe the knowledge formalization continuum as a metaphor to help domain specialists during the knowledge acquisition phase. To make use of the knowledge formalization continuum, the agile use of knowledge representations within a knowledge engineering project is proposed, as well as transitions between the different representations, when required. We show that a semantic wiki is a flexible tool for engineering knowledge on the knowledge formalization continuum. Case studies are taken from one industrial and one academic project, and they illustrate the applicability and benefits of semantic wikis in combination with the knowledge formalization continuum. 0 0
A semantic wiki for the engineering of diagnostic guideline knowledge CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2010 This paper presents a wiki environment for the modelling of Computer Interpretable Guidelines (CIGs) using the graphical language DiaFlux. We describe a wiki-driven development process using a stepwise formalization and allowing for almost self-acquisition by the domain specialists. The applicability of the approach is demonstrated by a project developing a guideline for sepsis diagnosis and treatment by a collaboration of clinicians. 0 0
KnowWE: a Semantic Wiki for knowledge engineering English 2010 Recently, Semantic Wikis showed reasonable success as collaboration platforms in the context of social semantic applications. In this paper, we present a novel approach, that interprets the concept of Semantic Wikis as a knowledge engineering environment, that effectively help to build decision-support systems. We introduce the Semantic Wiki KnowWE, that provides the possibility to define and maintain ontologies together with strong problem-solving knowledge. Thus, the wiki can be used to collaboratively build decision-support systems. These enhancements require extensions of the standard Semantic Wiki architecture by a task ontology for problem-solving and an adapted reasoning process. We discuss these extensions in detail, and we describe a case study in the field of medical emergency systems. 0 0
Towards meta-engineering for semantic wikis CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2010 Building intelligent systems is a complex task. In many knowledge engineering projects the knowledge acquisition activities can significantly benefit from a tool, that is tailored to the specific project setting with respect to domain, contributors, and goals. Specifying and building a new tool from scratch is ambitious, tedious, and delaying. In this paper we introduce a wiki-based meta-engineering approach allowing for the smooth beginning of the knowledge acquisition activities going along with tool specification and tailored implementation. Meta-engineering proposes that in a wiki-based knowledge engineering project not only the content (the knowledge base) should be developed in evolutionary manner but also the tool itself. 0 0
Engineering on the knowledge formalization continuum CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2009 Usually, domain knowledge is available at different levels of formality, for example such as documents, data bases, and (business) rules. We argue, that today's systems limit the knowledge engineering process to a fixed level of formality and expressiveness, respectively, and that these limitations hinder effective knowledge acquisition and use. In consequence, we introduce the knowledge formalization continuum as a metaphor, that embraces the fact that knowledge is available in different formalities. We motivate that a semantic wiki is a suitable tool to work on the knowledge formalization continuum, and we introduce KnowWE as an example wiki implementation. 0 0
Wiki-enabled semantic data mining - Task design, evaluation and refinement CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2009 Complementing semantic data mining systems by wikis and especially semantic wikis yield a flexible knowledge-rich method. This paper describes a system architecture of a collaborative approach for semantic data mining. The goal is to enhance the design, evaluation and refinement of data mining tasks using semantic technology. Collaborative aspects are introduced by utilizing wiki technology. We present the components and describe their interaction and application in detail. 0 0
Ad-hoc knowledge engineering with semantic knowledge wikis CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2008 A couple of semantic wikis have been proposed to serve as collaborative knowledge engineering environments - however, the knowledge of almost all systems is currently based on the expressiveness of OWL (Lite/DL). In this paper we present the concept of a semantic knowledge wiki that extends the capabilities of semantic wikis by strong problem-solving methods. We show how problem-solving knowledge is connected with standard ontological knowledge using an upper ontology. Furthermore, we discuss different possibilities to formalize problemsolving knowledge, for example by semantic knowledge annotation, structured text and explicit markups. 0 0

K-CAP'07: Proceedings of the Fourth International Conference on Knowledge Capture English 2007 This paper presents a collaborative knowledge engineering approach based on the widespread wiki technique. The interface of a standard wiki system is extended to allow for the capture, the maintenance and the use of knowledge systems. 0 0

Markups for knowledge wikis CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2007 Knowledge wikis extend normal wikis by the representation of explicit knowledge. In contrast to semantic wikis the defined knowledge is mainly used for knowledge-intensive tasks like collaborative recommendation and classification. In this paper, we introduce a prototype implementation of a knowledge wiki, and we discuss appropriate markups for problem-solving knowledge to be used in knowledge wikis. The main aspect of the proposed markups is their simplicity and compactness, since it is aimed that these markups are used by normal wiki users. Case studies report on practical experiences we have made with the development of various knowledge wikis. 0 0
User-centered consultation by a society of agents Agents

Diagnosis
Distributed knowledge acquisition
Knowledge-based systems
Wiki-systems
Proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Knowledge Capture, K-CAP'05 English 2005 User-centered consultation systems can be viewed as systems with trust in the competence of the user, whereas conventional knowledge systems are often based on some mistrust. By offering a variety of formal and informal diagnostic services mediated by flexible agents, the user solves his or her problem by asking the agents for specific information complementary to his or her knowledge. The development process is flexible enough to build minimalist Wiki-like informal systems very quickly, which can be incrementally refined and formalized in a distributed manner. The approach is demonstrated with two case studies. Copyright 2005 ACM. 0 0
