KIM is now continuing under the banner of SWAN.
SWAN is an experiment in scaling up automated metadata extraction for industrial strength Semantic Web applications development. The SWAN project leverages language technology to advance a number of existing DERI cluster elements covering both basic research and applications demonstrators. Gartner recently reported that for at least the next decade more than 95% of human-to-computer information input will involve textual language. They also report that by 2012 taxonomic and hierachical knowledge mapping and indexing will be prevalent in almost all information-rich applications. The web revolution has been based largely on human language materials, and in making the shift to the next generation knowledge-based web, human language will remain key.
