WikiNEXT: A wiki for exploiting the web of data Knowledge management

Wiki
Proceedings of the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing English 2014 This paper presents WikiNEXT, a semantic application wiki. WikiNEXT lies on the border between application wikis and modern web based IDEs (Integrated Development Environments) like jsbin.com, jsfiddle.net, cloud9ide.com, etc. It has been initially created for writing documents that integrate data from external data sources of the web of data, such as DBPedia.org or FreeBase.com, or for writing interactive tutorials (e.g. an HTML5 tutorial, a semantic web programming tutorial) that mix text and interactive examples in the same page. The system combines some powerful aspects from (i) wikis, such as ease of use, collaboration and openness, (ii) semantic web/wikis such as making information processable by machines and (iii) web-based IDEs such as instant development and code testing in a web browser. WikiNEXT is for writing documents/pages as well as for writing web applications that manipulate semantic data, either locally or coming from the web of data. These applications can be created, edited or cloned in the browser and can be used for integrating data visualizations in wiki pages, for annotating content with metadata, or for any kind of processing. WikiNEXT is particularly suited for teaching web technologies or for writing documents that integrate data from the web of data. Copyright 2014 ACM. 0 0
ISICIL: Semantics and social networks for business intelligence Business intelligence
Folksonomies
Semantic wiki
Social network
Social network analysis
Social semantic web
Lecture Notes in Computer Science English 2013 The ISICIL initiative (Information Semantic Integration through Communities of Intelligence onLine) mixes viral new web applications with formal semantic web representations and processes to integrate them into corporate practices for technological watch, business intelligence and scientific monitoring. The resulting open source platform proposes three functionalities: (1) a semantic social bookmarking platform monitored by semantic social network analysis tools, (2) a system for semantically enriching folksonomies and linking them to corporate terminologies and (3) semantically augmented user interfaces, activity monitoring and reporting tools for business intelligence. 0 0
WikiNext, a JavaScript wiki with semantic features HTML5

Semantic web

Wiki
WikiSym 2012 English 2012 WikiNext, is a semantic wiki prototype written in JavaScript, from database to server and client code. It is not in competition with wikis like Semantic Media Wiki, but more a test bed for new ideas. Every wiki page is an application that keeps a Web Socket open with the server, enabling incremental saves or collaborative editions using Google wave like algorithms. Using JavaScript on the whole chain of operations avoids data transformation from/to different formats like in traditional approaches (Objects, JSON/XML, and SQL). WikiNext uses JavaScript distributed objects and includes an IDE to write JS applications within wiki pages. 0 0

CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2007 In this paper, we present a new wiki engine: SweetWiki, offering the capabilities of a wiki together with some knowledge management features. And we give preliminary results of its use by some Palette CoPs. 0 0
SweetWiki : Semantic WEb enabled technologies in wiki CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2006 Wikis are social web sites enabling a potentially large number of participants to modify any page or create a new page using their web browser. As they grow, wikis suffer from a number of problems (anarchical structure, large number of pages, aging navigation paths, etc.). We believe that semantic wikis can improve navigation and search. In SweetWiki we investigate the use of semantic web technologies to support and ease the lifecycle of the wiki. The very model of wikis was declaratively described: an OWL schema captures concepts such as WikiWord, wiki page, forward and backward link, author, etc. This ontology is then exploited by an embedded semantic search engine (Corese). In addition, SweetWiki integrates a standard WYSIWYG editor (Kupu) that we extended to support semantic annotation following the "social tagging" approach made popular by web sites such as flickr.com. When editing a page, the user can freely enter some keywords in an AJAX-powered textfield and an auto-completion mechanism proposes existing keywords by issuing SPARQL queries to identify existing concepts with compatible labels. Thus tagging is both easy (keyword-like) and motivating (real time display of the number of related pages) and concepts are collected as in folksonomies. To maintain and reengineer the folksonomy, we reused a web-based editor available in the underlying semantic web server to edit semantic web ontologies and annotations. Unlike in other wikis, pages are stored directly in XHTML ready to be served and semantic annotations are embedded in the pages themselves using RDF/A. If someone sends or copy a page, the annotations follow it, and if an application crawls the wiki site it can extract the metadata and reuse them. 0 0
