Department / Institute:

This project focuses on the research of social software, social and semantic networks, knowledge management systems, Web 2.0 applications such as collaborative tagging and skill management. An intelligent social software system called skillMap is being developed which helps to visualize organizational knowledge by displaying social networks of experts and semantic relations between different fields of expertise. Its intelligent matching algorithms recommend individuals to each other based on their skill profile. In March 2006, skillMap was on displayed at the German Ministry of Education and Research´s CeBIT booth. Originally a subproject of InterVal, skillMap has evolved into a proper project structure on the brink of becoming a start-up. In the future, Findings and experiences will be applied to the development of a universal internet framework for collaborative tagging and semantic network construction.
