AceWiki is a semantic wiki that is powerful and at the same time easy to use. Making use of the controlled natural language ACE, the formal statements of the wiki are shown in a way that looks like natural English. In order to help the users to write correct ACE sentences, AceWiki provides a predictive editor.
Wandora is a general purpose data extraction, management, and publishing application based on Topic Maps and Java. Wandora has a graphical user interface, layered presentation of knowledge, several data storage options, rich data extraction, import and export capabilities, and an embedded HTTP server that enables dynamic publication of Topic Maps. Wandora is well suited for rapid ontology construction and knowledge mashups.
OpenEphyra is a question answering (QA) system. It retrieves answers to natural language questions from the Web and other sources. OpenEphyra comes with implementations of algorithms that proved effective in Carnegie Mellon's Ephyra system, which participated in the TREC evaluations. It is platform independent and can be set up in just a few minutes. The goal of this project is to give researchers the opportunity to develop new QA techniques without worrying about the end-to-end system.
Jigsaw is an embedded data-store designed for the development of data-warehouse, analytical, and machine learning applications. Jigsaw can perform over one million operations a second, and scale to store tera-bytes of data. The object library contains classes for representing ordered and unordered mappings, highly compressed bit vectors with a range of set theoretic operators, and directly integrates a high performance sort system.
SenseClusters is a natural language processing package that allows you to cluster similar contexts or to identify clusters of related words. It supports its own native methods based on first and second order representations of context, and also supports Latent Semantic Analysis. It is fully unsupervised, and can automatically discover the optimal number of clusters in your text. SenseClusters is a complete system that takes users from preprocessing of raw text to providing clustered output.
IkeWiki is a new kind of Wiki (a so-called "Semantic Wiki") developed by Salzburg Research that allows users to collaboratively annotate pages and links between pages with semantic annotations. Such annotations are useful because they give machines a certain amount of "understanding" of the content that goes beyond merely displaying the page. This information can then, for example, be used for context-specific presentation of pages, advanced querying, consistency verification, or drawing conclusions.
Isobel is a framework to build complex information retrieval and analysis systems. Isobel can be functionally divided in two subsytems, Isobel Gatherer (the crawling and filtering subsystem) and Isobel Analyzer (the analysis subsystem). The two subsytems can also be used separately. Isobel Gatherer offers ready-to-use services like content fetching, scheduling, document format conversion, Hyperlink graph storage and analysis, content storage and indexing. A programmer may easily add new services. Isobel Analyzer uses the IBM UIMA architecture to reuse the analysis components developed for this architecture.
Red-Piranha is a search system that can actually learn what you are looking for. It can be used as a Web page, command line, or XML-WebService, so it will work with most languages, including Java, Perl, C#/.NET, and PHP. It includes learning abilities for the Desktop/Internet search functionality. All feedback from the user is stored in (editable) XML and RDF, and is used by the system to improve the quality of searches.
OntoWiki is a semantic collaboration platform for the development of Semantic Web knowledge bases. OntoWiki enables large distributed communities to collaborate on a semantic level, by allowing users to contribute small structured knowledge pieces, which stitched together may result in comprehensive knowlegde bases. Powl is Web-based ontology authoring and management solution for the Semantic Web. Both expose an extensive API for PHP programmers.
