Intelligent Knowledge and Usage Mining driven Self-restructuring platform

Objective

The I-KnowUMine project aims to develop a novel and innovative generic platform for semi-automated re-engineering of on-line services based on Content, Knowledge and Web Site Metrics. I-KnowUMine will provide the opportunity for development of numerous on-line services ranging from electronic information services and electronic publishing to e-commerce and customer relations management applications. It will incorporate and integrate already tested technologies and research results on Content Management, Knowledge Management and Web Usage Mining in order to semi-automatically re-construct underlying information structure reflecting the needs of end-users or user groups for targeted information and affecting and improving overall performance, usability and user retention.

Objectives:
The proposed project aims to develop a novel and innovative generic platform for automated site re-engineering of on-line services based on Content, Knowledge and Web Site Metrics. I-KnowUMine will provide the basis for development of numerous on-line services ranging from electronic information services and electronic publishing to e-commerce and on-line collaborative applications. It will evaluate, customise and integrate cutting-edge technologies and incorporate research results on Content Management, Knowledge Management and Web Usage Mining in order to semi-automatically re-construct underlying information structure. So, the revised site structure will reflect the needs of end-users or user groups for targeted information while affecting and improving overall performance, usability and user retention. The platform will be validated by 2 European company users.

Work description:
The estimated duration of the project is 2 years. The work concerning the implementation of the project objectives will mainly be carried out in the following stages:
