Abstract:

During the Phase I period, Lymba studied the feasibility of an automated system that exposes a folksonomys semantic structure. We developed a prototype system that implements our proposed design and exposes a folksonomys semantic structure by building an ontology of tags which can be improve various folksonomy-related applications, such as automatic generation of user, document, or tag recommendations or collaborative tagging across multiple social bookmarking applications in addition to a folksonomy visualization, browsing and search application.
