Ontologies-Based Platform for Sociocultural Knowledge Management

Abstract : In this paper, we present a sociocultural platform aiming at persevering and capitalizing sociocul-tural events in Senegal. This platform relies on Semantic Web technologies. First, we discuss the two ontologies we provided to support our platform: an upper-level sociocultural ontology (USCO) and a human time ontol-ogy (HuTO). To build our upper-level ontology we proposed a methodology based on the theory of Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky called "Vygotskian Framework". We also present how the upper-level ontology can be matched in the Linked Open Data (LOD) cloud. On the other hand, we present the Human Time Ontol-ogy (HuTO) of which major contributions are (i) the modeling of non-convex intervals (repetitive interval) like every Monday, (ii) representation deictic temporal expressions which form specific relations with time speech and (iii) qualitative temporal notions which are temporal notions relative to a culture or a geographical position. Finally, we discuss the platform designed on top of Semantic MediaWiki to apply our scientific contributions. indeed, the platform allows Senegalese communities to share and co-construct their sociocultural knowledge.
