Demonstrator online: Link Recommender for Wikis

2009-10-15 10:18

In companies wiki systems are increasingly used for knowledge management because they allow creating websites in the Internet and intranet fast and collaboratively. An important feature of wikis is that they allow authors to insert links to other pages to point to related pages or to indicate missing content. However, current wiki systems fail to support authors in creating these links, e.g., the author needs to know the title of the target page. As a result, the authors have to be familiar with the whole content of the wiki in order to create useful links to related pages. If they do not know the wiki then they are unable to provide useful links and the wiki is less benefitial as a knowledge management tool. Moreover, it may happen that authors create two pages on the same topic without knowing of each other.

In this project we develop extensions to existing wiki systems that ease the pain of creating links between wiki pages. As a basis, we follow a fully automatic and a semi-automatic approach being explained in the following.
