SCAN is a personal information retrieval framework, combining search, text analysis, tagging, and metadata functions for document collections management. SCAN is a component-based software using a number of plugins for specific features. The basic SCAN platform can be easily extended with plugins for different document formats and document location types.
Osprey is a peer-to-peer enabled content distribution system. It is a metadata management system for software and document collections which enables local and distributed searching of materials. Items are available for download directly via an URL or indirectly via the BitTorrent peer-to-peer protocol. Two components exist: the Osprey Web application and permaseed (permanent seed). The Web application includes metadata management for finding and exploring available content, as well as a BitTorrent tracker.
SHORE (Semantic Hypertext Object Repository) is a hypertext repository that stores data about documents and data described by documents. Access to this information is provided as hypertext. The repository stores objects that appear in documents, together with their relations in a semantic net. Hypertext navigation follows these relations in the semantic net. The SHORE server works as an HTTP server, and the client is a standard Web browser. The repository uses PROLOG as its query language and the XSB system as its query engine.
QML (Quantity Modeling Language) is a "thing"-based language for scientific and mathematical data modeling. Each "thing" is a quantity which may be associated with either a structure or physical phenomena. Quantities, in turn, may hold other Quantities or values (numbers or strings). Higher-level data models, which associate or define meanings to various quantities (such as velocity or position), can be built from QML quantities. The higher-level data model (XML) schema that inherits from QML may be understood, and its instance documents may be parsed into QML documents and objects by the QMLReader.
The KiWi core system is a flexible platform for building different kinds of semantic social software applications on top (currently the Semantic Wiki and the TagIT application). It provides all the core services required in such applications, like editing and tagging, the storage of content and associated meta-data, its own triple store, transactions and versioning over content and meta-data, a linked open data server, and many small features semantic social software developers will like (like convenience services for working with ontologies or SKOS thesauruses, etc.).
Kraken is an application for managing knowledge objects, which can be documents, remote or locally cached Web pages, personal information, todo list items, appointments, and so on. It is especially useful for researchers or students to manage their information. Users can annotate these knowledge objects with metadata, perform complex queries, and present the results as HTML pages. Kraken uses RDF as its native format, allowing its data to be easily read by external applications.
