How Controlled English can Improve Semantic Wikis


Kuhn, T (2009). How Controlled English can Improve Semantic Wikis. In: Fourth Workshop on Semantic Wikis (SemWiki2009), Heraklion, Greece, 1 June 2009 - 1 June 2009.

Abstract

The motivation of semantic wikis is to make acquisition, maintenance, and mining of formal knowledge simpler, faster, and more flexible. However, most existing semantic wikis have a very technical interface and are restricted to a relatively low level of expressivity. In this paper, we explain how AceWiki uses controlled English - concretely Attempto Controlled English (ACE) - to provide a natural and intuitive interface while supporting a high degree of expressivity. We introduce recent improvements of the AceWiki system and user studies that indicate that AceWiki is usable and useful.
