Los Angeles Smart Data Message Board › Onlikne workship Proposal - Build and adopt a universal Personal Knowledge M
|A former member||
I was thirsty for Semantic Web Knowledge -- then I joined the Meetup. Now where do I channel this overwhelming flood of knowledge?
How are you currently coping?
The Semantic Web practitioners, some of who are Meetup members, all need to acquire and access new knowledge at an ever increasing pace. We need to timely and efficiently acquire and utilize personal knowledge from conversations, publications, presentations, and the web. We need to utilize the best practices tools and processes to accomplish this thereby maximizing our personal utility value.
Semantic Web practitioners should become the developers and early adopters of this technology.
While each individual will acquire only small pieces of information from the cloud and utilize information in many different individual ways, the need for a universal process that includes the ability to share remains to be fulfilled. The required software and processes should include:
(a) An industry-wide standardized topic structure (vocabulary, ontology, topic outline)
(b) the universal means to distribute and acquire pre-categorized knowledge
(c) tools to markup knowledge that which is manually input
(d) a means to manage the knowledge lifecycle to keep the store fresh and relevant.
(e) development of a new type of process that provides the means to link the knowledge within the personal knowledge base to the user’s needs, abstracting from the knowledge store a meta-level description that alerts the user to its presence and instructs the user as to its personal relevance. This idea represents a separate future proposal, for which groundwork can be started.
As Meetup members, we meet to acquire new knowledge, but the utility of that knowledge fades within our memory quite quickly unless we store it in a highly usable way, which requires not only the storage of facts but additional information added to aid in their later retrieval.
This information should be semantically marked up and a general topic structure index acquired/developed/applied to aid in making the information more valuable. If a universal cataloging terminology is applied then the information can be easily shared among participants.
Anyone interested in collectively designing the workshop? We will probably want to utilize the existing wiki as a place to evolve the design proposal.
