Networked environment for personal ontology-based management of unified knowledge

Objective

Faced with an ever-increasing information flood in a complex and interconnected world, individual knowledge workers are in dire need for support in structuring their personal information space and maintaining fruitful communication and exchange within social networks across organizational boundaries. NEPOMUK develops technical support and stipulates and mobilizes community efforts to realize the Social Semantic Desktop.

This paradigm comprises a set of technical and methodological solutions for:
- supporting the knowledge life cycle via personal knowledge articulation support, embedding in personal work processes, and sharing, exchange and alignment across social networks
- cross-media and cross-application linking and browsing of information items based on standard semantic web data structures, together with un-intrusive metadata support
- knowledge communication within social networks and distributed search and storage to build, maintain, and employ inter-workspace relations in large scale distributed scenarios.

NEPOMUK realizes an open-source framework which allows integration of third-party components via pluggable adaptors and actively promotes this basic technology in open development communities. Industrial and community case studies apply, adapt and test the solution in knowledge work scenarios in different scales of distribution, organizational complexity, and application domains. The project delivers a freely available open-source framework for social semantic desktops, a rich set of standardized interfaces and reference implementations, and generic and domain-specific business opportunities based on the application experiences.
