UPDATE: As of 2015 the GiveAlink project has been archived and the website is no longer operational. Link analysis algorithms leverage hyperlinks created by authors as semantic endorsements between pages, while social bookmarks provide a way to leverage annotations by information consumers as a source of information about pages. This project explores a novel approach that is a synergy of the two: soliciting annotations from users about the content of pages, in a way that implicitly forms networks of relationships between and among resources and tags. These socially generated relationships are then aggregated to build bottom-up, global semantic similarity networks. Strategic collaborations to share data, accelerate evaluation, and maximize impact are under way with key groups in Europe through the TAGora Project and its partners at Rome Sapienza, Sony Paris, the ISI Foundation in Torino, and the BibSonomy group at Kassel University.

Mind iT - Intelligent Bookmarking GiveALink features a search engine which, given a URL, finds other Web pages that people bookmark together with it (i.e. similar Web pages). The search engine also supports keyword search and the results can be personalized based on the user's submitted bookmark files. In addition, users can view, organize, augment their bookmarks online, as well as download their bookmark files to several computers. All of the (anonymized) data at GiveALink is available online to other researchers and Internet users. GiveALink uses the existing hierarchical structure in bookmark files (folders and subfolders), as well as collaborative filtering techniques, to measure similarity between Web pages.

Visual Browser About the application Visual Browser is a Java application that can visualize the data in RDF scheme. The main principle of the visualization is that: the triple (resource, resource, resource) is represented by two nodes connected by an edge the triple (resource, resource, literal) is represented by a hint (small window appearing on mouse over the subject node) the triple (resource, resource, literal) can be represented by the length of the edge (between resource and resource) if the literal can be converted to a number Visual Browser uses the Jena framework to obtain the data, since the RDF scheme can be saved in different forms (a single XML file or a relational database). The visualization engine is derived from TouchGraph LLC. The graph is animated to create an impression of fixed points (nodes) and elastic connections (edges). The user interface allows the user to expand and hide nodes, switch the view of edges and display hints. Two-level visualization Examples of visualization Citeseer

Mind iT - Intelligent Bookmarking Introduction This short tutorial will guide you through the process of importing your exiting bookmarks into MindiT. Currently, only local bookmarks are supported, i.e. bookmarks from your browser, as opposed to online bookmak managers such Delicious or Diigo. While you are able to import any standard HTML bookmark file, the result of importing a file generated by one of these online bookmarking managers may be less than optimal. Please note that the import functionality is very much work in progress, so some glitches here and there may be expected. Submitting an HTML bookmark export file The first step is to create an HTML export of our bookmarks, this feature is supported by virtually all modern browsers, below are some examples on how to do this in Chrome and Firefox: Exporting bookmarks from Firefox Exporting bookmarks from Chrome Once you have your file ready, you will need to upload it to our server for processing here.

StumbleUpon - The One True Simple Way to Organize Your Online Reading Ever heard of StumbleUpon? It’s been around for quite some time (you can Google it if you are truly an information freak) and, according to my humble opinion, StumbleUpon’s value is underestimated by everyone. Also Read: StumbleUpon for Business: An Introduction The site defines itself as is the easiest way to find cool new websites, videos, photos and images from across the Web. Many consider StumbleUpon to be a “social network” and although I can understand why, I mean it does connect people and information, well, I’m still not so keen to jump on that grenade, even after taking into consideration the platform’s long term existence. What StumbleUpon basically offers is content discovery: in Layman’s terms, a place to “stumble” on information. You might want to try it out – it operates under the same fundamentals of a classic social network, such as Facebook, or rather, Pinterest, where you, instead of pinning pictures, are stumbling likes, pages and information.

9 lessons about the web and business from Pearltrees, the or Pearltrees is a French startup that wants to change the way we organise the web. Describing how it works would lead you to believe that it’s another social bookmarking site, which would do them injustice. Most of the social bookmarks are organized either alphabetically or chronologically, which doesn’t do much good when you try to retrieve stuff later. This idea of velocity is not what Pearltrees is about – on the contrary, it’s a tool that helps you keep an eye on context and history in the endless stream of blogs, tweets and Facebook posts. It sounds unspectacular, but there’s something quite pleasant about adding a “pearl” and knowing that you can find that one blog post about a media deal between CNN and BuzzFeed from a few months back with a few clicks. (I can hear you think that you “don’t like to click”, but that would be missing the point. So there’s the genius of Pearltrees: the not getting lost while searching for stuff on the internet. 1. 2. 3. But back to Pearltrees. 4. 5. 6.
