Wikyoto Knowledge Editor

The Wikyoto Knowledge Editor is the Web-based wiki platform where domain experts and knowledge engineers can collaboratively browse, refine and enrich the linguistic and semantic resources of KYOTO referred to as the KYOTO Multilingual Knolwdge Base: it constitutes the semantic ground for all the information processed by KYOTO.

Thus richer the Multilingual Knowledge Base is, more effective and deeper KYOTO semantic analysis of data can be.

As we can see from the following picture the Knowledge Editor allows navigating and extending the KYOTO Multilingual Knolwedge Base. It is composed by seven WordNets encoding language specific lexical patterns for each of the seven European and Asian languages involved in KYOTO: English, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Basque, Simplified Mandarin Chinese and Japanese. In order to support cross-linguism in KYOTO information extraction and mining tasks all the language-specific patterns of the WordNet are mapped to the language-independent entities of the KYOTO Central Ontology. Wikyoto users can create and colllaboratively enrich domain extensions of the each WordNet of a specific language as well as map it to the KYOTO Central Ontology.

In order to provide Wikyoto users with useful suggestions to enrich the KYOTO Multilingual Knowledge Base, the Wikyoto Knolwedge Editor allows browsing and importing proper knowledge representation structures from different kinds of external resources:

  • KYOTO Terminology: a set of multilingual terminological collections extracted by the KYOTO system by mining the set of processed documents. Each terminological collection is mainly constituted by a set of terms hierarchically organized with eventual proposed mappings to WordNet.
  • SKOS Thesauri: a set of thesauri external to the KYOTO system, organized as collections of concepts with labels in different languages, interlinked by narrower, broader and relatedTo relations. Currently by accessing the online version of the Wikyoto Knowledge Editor, there are four different knowledge base represented as SKOS Thesauri: the General Multilingual Environmental Thesaurus (GEMET), Species 2000, the Habitat types from EUNIS Biodiversity Database and the WWF Ecoregions Database. Wikyoto incorporates a rich interface to easily browse these thesauri so as to get useful suggestions to structure Domain WordNets.
  • Other Knowledge Resources: DBpedia, the Semantic Web structured version of Wikipedia contents, is accessed by the Knolwedge Editor in order to get usefull suggestion on how to formalize knowledge.

The Wikyoto Knowledge Editor and the KYOTO System


Knowledge Editor Online access

The Wikyoto Knowledge Editor has been developed by the Institute of Informatics and Telematics of the CNR of Pisa as a Rich Web Application, accessible through a common Web browser. It exploits a wide range of Web 2.0 tecniques and interaction patterns.

The client-side logic and interface has been relized exploiting object-oriented Javascript techinques in order to interact with the different distributed knowledge repoitories involved:

  • the KYOTO Multilingual Knowledge Base, hosted at the Vrije University of Amsterdam;
  • the KYOTO Terminology, hosted at the Vrije University of Amsterdam;
  • the environmental SKOS Thesauri, hosted on a RDF triplestore at the Masaryk University of Brno;
  • DBpedia, hosted at the Freje Universitat of Berlin.
