A Complete Life-Cycle for the Semantic Enrichment of Folksonomies

Abstract : Tags freely provided by users of social tagging services are not explicitly semantically linked, and this significantly hinders the possibilities for browsing and exploring these data. On the other hand, folksonomies provide great opportunities to bootstrap the construction of thesauri. We propose an approach to semantic enrichment of folksonomies that integrates both automatic processing and user input, while formally supporting multiple points of view. We take into account the social structure of our target communities to integrate the folksonomy enrichment process into everyday tasks. Our system allows individual users to navigate more efficiently within folksonomies, and also to maintain their own structure of tags while benefiting from others contributions. Our approach brings also solutions to the bottleneck problem of knowledge acquisition by helping communities to build thesauri by integrating the manifold contributions of all their members, thus providing for a truly socio-semantic solution to folksonomy enrichment and thesauri construction.
