IKS project, months 4 to 6: a community is born!



For me the major IKS project event this quarter is without a doubt the Workshop in Salzburg at the end of May that I blogged about before.

Talk is cheap and implementation is another story – we now have to implement the ideas discussed there, in my case mostly the search engine and user stories. We’ve got started on those, but most of the work is still ahead of us.

We have also received the first benchmark requirements, where we’ll have to evaluate our product’s semantic search abilities, and create some prototype extensions that allow us to better cover this area.

With so many CMS luminaries at the Salzburg workshop, we have started to create an IKS community – at least when it comes to agreeing on what IKS should be, and that’s great already. Now’s the time to move to the next level and actually start creating useful software for and with this community.

    Bertrand,

    Reading this blog entry, I am wondering, are you familiar with this stuff:
    http://www.aduna-software.com/home/overview.view

    These guys are working on semantics and searching for years now…

    Dear Bertrand and Sandor,

    Our colleague Andrea Mulrenin is coordinating STERNA
    http://www.sterna-net.eu/ (the theme is roughly: semantic content syndication for museums)
    In STERNA technology provider trezorix is using aduna using the Reference Network Architecture (RNA) approach developed at the Free University Amsterdam.

    STERNA will have their review meeting in Salzburg, this October and we have already arranged to meet up with them, for an exchange of ideas.

    regards, Wernher
