Combining Structure and Semantics for Ontology-Based Corporate Wikis

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing book series (LNBIP,volume 7)

Abstract

While wikis offer new means to collaboratively build, organize and share knowledge in organizations, such knowledge cannot be easily understood by computers in a query answering or reusability process. This paper details the features and architecture of a wiki-farm system that combines structure and semantics in order to collaboratively produce ontology-based data and immediately reuse it in wiki pages to enrich browsing and querying capabilities of the system.
