Social Software Unit

Social software allows people to connect, communicate or collaborate by use of a computer network resulting in shared, interactive spaces creating new methods for connecting people and the information that they have created. Common examples of social software systems include discussion forums, blogs, wikis and online social networks. By utilising Semantic Web technologies in social software systems, we can create new methods for connecting people to other people and also to the information that they have created. This work programme builds on the existing achievements from Líon I (SIOC project, social network analysis collaboration with IBM and the semantic tagging work with Seoul National University) and extends this work to the application domains of eGovernment, eHealth, telecommunications and eBusiness in collaboration with the domain-specific units.

Wikis,the Semantic Web heads to the streets

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology using wikis and the Semantic Web look to change the way people map and navigate their cities.

The Wiki City project, run by MIT's SENSEable City Laboratory , aims to apply wiki technology to the mapmaking process. The project's ultimate product will permit anyone to upload content to a map and utilize Semantic Web principles to cross search multiple layers of information.
