Ontopolis.net: Social-Semantic Web Application for Participative e-Democracy


  • Václav Belák, KIZI, VŠE Praha

We present a system for collaborative solving of political issues. In order to provide better aid for collaboration and self-organization in the political space, several knowledge technologies are used: the system is built on top of an RDF store; data are represented by a schema in OWL; descriptions of content are disambiguated using the WordNet thesaurus. Emerging politically engaged groups can establish themselves into local political initiatives, NGOs, or even new political parties. Therefore, the system may help people easily participate on solutions of issues which are influencing them.
