Semantically Enriching Folksonomies Using FLOR
This event took place on Wednesday 28 May 2008 at 11:30
While the increasing popularity of folksonomies has lead to a vast quantity of tagged data, resource retrieval in folksonomies is limited by being agnostic to the meaning (i.e., semantics) of tags. Our goal is to automatically enrich folksonomy tags (and implicitly the related resources) with formal semantics by associating them to relevant concepts defined in online ontologies. We introduce FLOR, a method that performs automatic folksonomy enrichment by combining knowledge from WordNet and online available ontologies.

We are also inviting top experts in AI and Knowledge Technologies to discuss major socio-technological topics with an audience that comprises both members of the Knowledge Media Institute, as well as the wider staff at The Open University. Differently from our seminar series, these events follow a Q&A format.
