Panel details: Semantic technology has recently emerged as a powerful accelerator for social technologies. The potential is clearest at the intersection of wikis and semantics. Traditional wikis are some of the most successful platforms in existence for knowledge management and at creating consensus. Adding semantic technologies can boost both the range of items that users can collaborate over, as well as the depth of this collaboration. Further, combining wikis with semantics promises capabilities that are not possible in traditional wikis, such as crowd-based authoring of structured knowledge and socially-driven mashups. In this session, the panelists will discuss their experiences with combining wikis and semantic technology. The session will include live examples of different wikis, drawn from neuroscience, open government data, knowledge management, and other areas.
