Incentives for Semantics (INSEMTIVES)
Start date: Apr 1, 2009, End date: Mar 31, 2012 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Description Bridging the gap between human and computational intelligenceBridging the gap between human and computational intelligenceThe objective of INSEMTIVES is to bridge the gap between human and computational intelligence in the current semantic content authoring research and development landscape. The project aims at producing methodologies, methods and tools that enable the massive creation and feasible management of semantic content in order to facilitate the world-wide uptake of semantic technologies.What?Bridging the gap between human and computational intelligence. Providing incentives for users to contribute to semantic content creation.Why?A critical mass of machine-understandable data is still missing and the natural limitations of automation in semantic content creation-related tasks are hampering the uptake of semantic technologies. Applications do not provide incentives and motivation for users to engage is manually creating this data.How?INSEMTIVES optimally combines research with development and applications. The foundations are methods and guidelines facilitating semantic content in an incentives driven manner. They underlie the INSEMTIVES platform (backend) and varioius end-user tools for semantic content creation (front end). These technology components are used in three real-world case studies.
