AWAKE - Networked Awareness for Knowledge Discovery

Link:

http://awake.imk.fhg.de

Description:

The aim of the project Awake is to explore how implicit knowledge structures in different communities of experts can be discovered, visualised and employed for semantic navigation of information spaces and construction of new knowledge.

The developed methods combine semantic text analysis with Machine Learning and interfaces for visualising relationships and creating new knowledge structures. Application scenarios include automatic generation of personalised knowledge portals, collaborative semantic exploration of complex information spaces and construction of shared ontology networks for the SemanticWeb.

The real-world testbed and context of development is the Internet platform netzspannung.org that aims at establishing a knowledge portal connecting digital art, culture and information technology.
