SemanticWeb - Putting Wikipedia to Work for the Semantic Web - 0 views

  • Semantic tags are in, free text tags are out.
  • August 4, 2009
  • ...33 more annotations...
  • Semantic tags will be a core building block of the next-generation web
  • leveraging the popular Wikipedia as a vast source of a universal controlled vocabulary
  • Wikipedia can serve as a great controlled vocabulary for tags
  • Every concept is unique, has a unique URI,
  • well-defined.
  • DBpedia did a very good job of extracting the structure or semi-structure
  • and expressing it in RDF
  • or a machine readable way.
  • Faviki helps users remove the ambiguity otherwise surrounding free text tags’ meaning.
  • You can use some concrete concepts as tags
  • yourself as the author as a tag
  • specific organizations or companies or people or specific ideas as tags
  • DBpedia’s linking between the various language versions of Wikipedia
  • users tag in 14 different languages
  • English as the universal reference
  • Common Tag
  • last month, Faviki added the ability for users to use their own keywords or tags in a freeform way
  • and map them to semantic tags
  • connecting tagging with searching to accomplish this.
  • the new release lets users create new tags outside of Wikipedia, using Google returns from the whole world of web pages
  • users collaborate on which URLs are the best candidates for new concepts.
    • Graham Perrin
       
      Smart.
  • URL tags are not so clear as dbpedia
  • a bit more messy
  • a bit more dynamic,
  • but the idea was to make it semi-automatic. People make them and disambiguate them while adding tags
  • some kind of compromise.
  • Next steps for Faviki are around connecting with other services such as del.i.cious, Twitter, and Facebook, to make it easier for users to try it out.
  • Some longer-term plans would be to publish data from Faviki in linked data, to connect to the rest of inked data,
  • making that data queryable to developers via SPARQL.
  • by opening the data, because that’s the idea of the semantic web, to make the data open and connect easily to various sources
  • as much a platform as an application
  • mappings between free tags’ association and some uniquely identified concepts will be very important
    • Graham Perrin
       
      I agree.
  • that kind of data will be interesting to developers.
  •  
    Recommended reading for anyone interested in tagging, semantic tagging or the semantic web.

New release: Faviki makes semantic tagging (almost) as easy as classic « Favi... - 0 views

  • custom names for tags
  • ...30 more annotations...
  • better control over tagging
  • OpenID
  • Save API
  • defining new tags
  • several new features
  • mainly to facilitate the use of common tags
  • overcome Wikipedia’s limitations as a controlled vocabulary for semantic tags
  • common, “semantic” tags are unique, well-defined concepts
  • Is it possible to make semantic tags as flexible as classic ones? Can humans accept and love the format intended for machines?
  • Enhanced tagging interface
  • added in free form, resembling classic tagging
  • possible to use custom names for tags
  • If Faviki doesn’t understand a tag provided by a user, it will ask her to disambiguate it. It will then remember her choice
  • Faviki “learns” about user’s name of the tag

    Faviki “learns” about user’s name of the tag

    • Graham Perrin
       
      Superb.
  • custom names for tags can also be modified explicitly on the Tag page.
  • Defining new tags

  • added the same way as Wikipedia tags. The difference is that, this time, Google search is not restricted to Wikipedia’s domain
  • only a few of the top results are allowed to be selected
  • users collaboratively create new tags
  • Users collaboratively decide the best URLs for a concept

    Users collaboratively decide the best URLs for a concept

    • Graham Perrin
       
      Title, URL, a little text and a thumbnail, with sources.

      Compare the two. Answer yes or no.

      Perfect!
  • Save/Edit API
  • a simple API that provides a way to save and edit bookmarks from other applications.
    • Graham Perrin
       
      Hurrah!

      I'd love to have this work with Diigo API for bookmarks…
  • OpenID support
  • uses RPX
  • Other features/improvements
  • Smarter autocomplete list
  • Converting tags
  • Spam control
  • Export/backup bookmarks
  • Tag description tooltip
  •  
    @ Diigo

    Let's make best use of the Faviki Save/Edit API.
  •  
    The bookmarklet for Faviki is compelling.

Faviki - Social bookmarking tool using smart semantic Wikipedia (DBpedia) tags - 0 views

  •  
    Left to right:

    * triangular switch to close (hide detail) or open
      — green switch for other user's bookmarks
      — amber switch for your own bookmarks

    * favicon of the bookmarked item

    * username of the most recent networker

    * title of the bookmarked item
      — font size a little greater than the norm

    * date or time of networking
      — font size a little less than the norm
    + save
    + spam?
      — these options appear when you curse over the date/time.

    When the bookmark is open, detail comprises:

    * highlight from the page

    * personal note

    * tags
      — Common Tag
      — as you curse over each one, its definition

    * popularity
      — the number of people who have networked the bookmarked item
    + overview
      — this option appears subtly when you curse over the number.

    Example Faviki overviews http://www.faviki.com/webpage/wave.google.com_28277 and
    http://www.faviki.com/webpage/esw.w3.org_12350 suggest that early adopters of Faviki may not make greatest use of highlights and notes, but that's a separate topic …

    Log in to Faviki to see recent bookmarks from all users at http://www.faviki.com/

    The UI is nice.
