INSEMTIVES plans to collaborate with a number of projects during its lifetime. With that respect, we are currently discussing different collaboration possibilities with the European project KIWI which is set out to realize novel means to support knowledge management using Web2.0 and semantic technologies.
Last week I had the pleasure to introduce our project in the KIWI plenary meeting in Prague and in the same sense to get some insights about current work from the KIWI partners. It was quite interesting to see their work and especially their use cases. The most interesting use case from my point of view is the Sun use case which has some interesting people and technologies in it. One very interesting part of their use case is current work by Henry Story on FOAF+SSL and by Peter Reiser and his group on the Community Equity (CE) approach. The goal of CE is to implement a system which determines the social value of people’s contribution with respect to contributed content, skills, or participation. CE is definitely interesting with respect to our incentive research in INSEMTIVES and we will for sure monitor what is going on there.
Furthermore it was nice to see the KIWI platform in action while getting an in-depth introduction to it.
So thanks again to Sebastian for inviting me to their meeting and I am looking forward to welcome him next week in our plenary meeting in Innsbruck!
