Join the NEPOMUK Social Semantic Desktop Summer School 1.0

Application deadline: June 9th, 2008 The NEPOMUK Social Semantic Desktop develops a comprehensive solution for extending the personal desktop into a collaboration environment which supports both the personal information management and the sharing and exchange across social and organizational relations. The summer school will provide a very good opportunity for postgraduate students to refine their knowledge in a variety of topics such as Semantic Web, Personal Information Management, P2P, HCI or Social Networking, all in the context of the Social Semantic Destkop.

First Nepomuk Doctoral Colloquium

I was supported in this effort by Mehdi Jazayeri, professor of computer science at University of Lugano, Switzerland, and Yngve Sundblad, professor of computer science at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.The event was quite a learning experience not only for the doctorands (at least, I hope so!)… I am involved in supervising doctorands for quite a while now, but I rarely get the opportunity to see if my opinion / my view on how PhD research should be done is valid …PhD research is communicated in the project via the Nepomuk-internal wiki.

Doctoral colloquium at next Nepomuk General Assembly

Yesterday, at the Steering Committee (STC) meeting in Athens, Greece, I suggested to hold a doctoral colloquium where PhD students can report on their research work and discuss about achievements, problems, and goals…. As the STC supports this idea the doctoral colloquium will be part of the next General Assembly end of February next year in Paris.

Nepomuk, an Operating System?

In discussions over the last couple of days—during a project meeting in Paris and in particular with Cédric Mesnage—it became clear to me that „the Nepomuk system“ is more of a kind of operating system than an application. The Nepomuk system provides a bundle of services that deal and help to deal with semantical information.

NEPOMUK presentation @ MIT

Already more than two weeks ago I was there, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, having a meeting with Tim Berners-Lee, the founder of the World Wide Web, and two of his senior researchers at MIT CSAIL / W3C, Ralph Swick and Dan Connolly.In the 2.5 hours meeting, we briefly discussed some of my previous work in the MedCIRCLE project, which also was Semantic Web related and provided metadata on health information websites…. For us in the NEPOMUK project, based on his talk, I can confirm that our approach of the Semantic Desktop is fully compatible with his vision.During the meeting we touched only some technical bits of the current gnowsis implementation, i.e., the Personal Information Model PIMO and the Miquire sidebar.

Presenting Nepomuk @ MIT

Attending AAAI-06 in Boston and visiting this city are in itself things I am looking forward to very much and for a long time now. But it still gets better: I am going to visit MIT and the founder of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee.

Why you’ll love a Nepomuk(ed) system!

Thilo Deussen–a student of Philosophy and Computer Science at University of Ulm and currently working at SAP Research, Karlsruhe–got me thinking when he pointed me to the Get a Mac ads…. Imagine an Information Retrieval based Google Desktop Search talking to a Nepomuk-enabled system, discussing, or better, describing the benefits of the latter system. Weiterlesen

Schreibpraxis: Kreative Räume

Mit den drei Werkzeugen Whiteboard, Magnetleisten und Moderationstafel erzeuge ich mir eine kreative Blase, die mir Eckpunkte meines aktuellen Romans immer vor Augen hält. Details sind immer direkt greifbar. Wichtige Rechercheergebnisse brauche ich nicht erst irgendwo herauszukramen. Wenn meine Augen durch das Büro wandern, finden sie immer etwas, das zum Romanprojekt gehören. Alle anderen To-Do-Listen und Erinnerungen habe ich aus meinem unmittelbaren Blickfeld verbannt. Und wenn ich gewisse Aspekte im Roman verarbeitet habe, räume ich das Material einen vorbereiteten Karton. So verändert sich mein kreativer Raum mit der Zeit und bleibt dabei immer aktuell.

Schreibpraxis: Integrierte Schreibumgebung Scrivener

Vor ein paar Jahren bin ich auf die integrierte Schreibumgebung Scrivener gestoßen. Scrivener unterstützt sowohl das Schreiben kurzer als auch langer Texte. Wichtig für mich ist die Möglichkeit, den Romantext vom Recherchematerial getrennt zu halten, aber doch im selben System zu pflegen. Jedes Dokument hat einen Status (z. B. „To Do“ oder „Draft“). Bei jeder Szene, weiß ich damit sofort, ob sie abgeschlossen ist. Mit einem farbigen Label markiere ich, aus wessen Sicht die entsprechende Szene erzählt wird. Die Karteikartenansicht hilft mir, den Überblick zu behalten. Weiterlesen

Sunny Social Semantic Desktop Summer School Successful

The students were eager to learn—something one would like to see at university in one’s own courses a bit more from time to time. … A highlight for me were the mini-projects where students worked in groups on topics they had chosen to their liking. Weiterlesen
