Community building around encyclopaedic knowledge
Abstract This paper gives a brief overview of curreThis paper gives a brief overview of current technologies in systems handling encyclopaedic knowledge. Since most of the electronic encyclopaedias currently available are rather static and inflexible, greatly enhanced func- tionality is introduced that enables users to work more effectively and collaboratively. Users have the ability, for instance, to add annotations to every kind of object and can have private and shared workspaces. The techniques described employ user profiles in order to adapt to users and involve statistical analysis to improve search results. Moreover, a tracking and navigation mechanism based on trails is presented. The second part of the paper details community building around encyclopaedic knowledge with the aim to involve “plain� users and experts in environments with largely editorial content. The foundations for building a user community are specified along with significant facets such as retaining the high quality of content, rating mech- anisms and social aspects. A system that implements large portions of the community-related concepts in a heterogeneous environment of several largely indepen- dent data sources is proposed. Apart from online and {DVD-based} encyclopaedias, potential application areas are {e-Learning}, corporate documentation and knowledge management systems.entation and knowledge management systems.

Conclusion This paper introduced several demands thatThis paper introduced several demands that future systems dealing with encyclopaedias knowledge should meet. Annotations should be omnipresent, and documents should be really active documents. Furthermore, users must have the opportunity to store the information encountered and their comments in a private workspace—and they have to be able to share it with other users in the system. User profiles with the aim of adaptation individual users, statistical analysis and navigation and tracking technologies based on trails will provide more accurate and more detailed search results.accurate and more detailed search results.

Since most of the electronic encyclopaedias currently available are rather static and inflexible, greatly enhanced functionality is introduced that enables users to work more effectively and collaboratively. Users have the ability, for instance, to add annotations to every kind of object and can have private and shared workspaces. The techniques described employ user profiles in order to adapt to different users and involve statistical analysis to improve search results. Moreover, a tracking and navigation mechanism based on trails is presented. The second part of the paper details community building around encyclopaedic knowledge with the aim to involve “plain” users and experts in environments with largely editorial content. The foundations for building a user community are specified along with significant facets such as retaining the high quality of content, rating mechanisms and social aspects.
