Shepard: Research project, maybe comparable to OpenCalais
Shepard: "The main objective of WeKnowIt is to develop novel techniques for exploiting multiple layers of intelligence from user-contributed content, which together constitute Collective Intelligence, a form of intelligence that emerges from the collaboration and competition among many individuals, and that seemingly has a mind of its own."
Shepard: "To this end, input from various sources is analysed and combined: from digital content items and contextual information (Media Intelligence), massive user feedback (Mass Intelligence), and users social interaction (Social Intelligence) so as to benefit end-users (Personal Intelligence) and organisations (Organisational Intelligence)."
Shepard: E.g. providing tourists with relevant information about the places they're travelling through their phone, combining user reviews and information from travelling agencies. Or quickly gathering information about emergencies.
karlUshi: They will explore RDFa as a possible replacement, not decided yet.
