[edit] Abstract

Semantic Web, Social Web, and new economic challenges are causing major shifts in the pervasive fabric that the internet has become, in particular for the business world. The internet's new role as participatory medium and its ubiquity lead to dense tri-sortal communities of humans and businesses mixed with computer systems, and semantically interoperating in a well-defined sense. Many of the challenges and ongoing (r)evolutions appear to produce as yet seemingly contradictory requirements and thus produce potentially very interesting research areas. We argue that linguistics, community-based real world "social" semantics and pragmatics, scalability, the trisortal nature of the communities involved, the balance between usability and reusability, and the methodological requirements for non-disruptive adoption by enterprises of the new technologies provide vectors for fundamental computer science research, for interesting new artefacts, and for new valorizations of enterprise interoperability. We posit that one such development will likely result in hybrid ontologies and their supporting social implementation environments -such as semantic wikis-that accommodate the duality and co-existence of formal reasoning requirements inside systems on the one hand and of declarative knowledge manipulation underlying human communication and agreement on the other hand.
