Harvesting Desktop Data for Semantic Blogging

SemanticDesktop.org
Abstract

A typical computer user’s desktop contains large amount of for- mal data, such as addresses, events or bibliopraphies. Especially within a corporate or organizational environment, it is often important to exchange this data between employees. However, state-of-the-art communication tech- nologies such as email or bulletin boards don’t allow to easily integrate desk- top data in the communication process, with the effect that the data remains locked within a user’s computer. In this paper, we propose that the recent phenomenon of blogging, combined with a tool to easily generate Semantic Web (SW) data from existing formal desktop data, can result in a form of semantic blogging which would help to overcome the aforementioned prob- lem. We discuss a number of preconditions which must be met in order to allow semantic blogging and encourage users to author a semantic blog, and we present a prototype of the semiBlog editor, which was created with the purpose of user-friendly semantic blogging in mind. We argue that such a semantic blog editor should integrate tightly with a user’s desktop environ- ment, as this would make integration of existing data into the blog as easy as possible.

IRIS: Integrate. Relate. Infer. Share.

SemanticDesktop.org
Abstract

In this paper we introduce a new semantic desktop system called IRIS, an application framework for enabling users to create a “personal map” across their office-related information objects. Built as part of the CALO Cognitive Assistant project, IRIS represents a step in our quest to construct the kinds of tools that will significantly augment the user’s ability to perform knowledge work. This paper explains our design decisions, progress, and shortcomings. The IRIS project has grown from the past work of others and offers opportunities to augment and otherwise collaborate with other current and future semantic desktop projects. This paper marks our entry into the ongoing conversation about semantic desktops, intelligent knowledge management, and systems for augmenting the performance of human teams.
