Ncoic semantic wiki pilot proposal

NCOIC Semantic Wiki Pilot Proposal


The original wiki idea
The original WIKI* idea

  • “A web site where anybody can create/edit a web page”

  • Structure

    • is not pre-determined

    • invented & evolved by community

    • neither top down or bottom up

  • Quick collaborative writing

  • Non-linear hypertext

* Wiki is the short form for “wiki wiki web,” from the Hawaiian expression “wiki wiki” meaning fast or quick.


Wiki concepts
WIKI concepts

  • Authoring via web browser — Also, uploading of arbitrary (multimedia) content

  • Simplified wiki syntax — Very simple markup for authors

  • Collaborative editing — Any page can be immediately contributed to, extended, revised, corrected assuming you have the right privileges

  • Rollback mechanism — All changes are versioned, audited and transparent to the community

  • Strong linking — “Concepts” in text can immediately become active resources (pages/links)

  • Search — Typically, a full text search capability


Benefits of the wiki idea

Wiki way:

Distinct concepts or topics are built on the fly

Discourse forms around or in the context of a topic

Eliminates serialized document work flow

Team or community members can immediately see commentary in the context of a topic

Versus:

Each person edits a copy of the document

A poor soul merges the results

Expensive file shares

E-mailing bulky documents

“Versions” of opaque documents everywhere

“Organizing” documents in hierarchal file system

Benefits of the wiki idea


Semantics it s what we do every second

What?

Convert data into something we can comprehend…

By developing or applying concepts…

Quickly relating them to instances in the world…

Applying and revising our world models, and…

Sharing our thoughts with others

How?

Identification—concept encoding

Generalization—organizing concepts by kind

Aggregation—organizing complexes into simpler concepts

Common Properties— relationships (connecting properties), & attributes (flat properties)

Naming Conventions— terms / phrases; language

Semantics? It’s what we do every second.


Ncoic semantic wiki
Semantic Technologies:Represent meanings & knowledge about things so both computers and people can work with it


Ncoic semantic wiki
Model knowledge about infrastructure, information, behavior, & domain expertise separately from programs, data, & documents


Semantics we have experience encoding our thoughts and meanings
SemanticsWe have experience encoding our thoughts and meanings…

Semantic wiki concept of operation

Semantic Wiki Concept of Operation


The problem document centric work group processes
The ProblemDocument-Centric Work Group Processes

  • Inadequate process for reaching reasonable technical consensus

  • Costly & ineffective collaboration across work groups

  • Difficulty understanding & managing complex interrelationships across set of NCOIC products

  • Inefficient, error-prone, and time consuming process for aligning & harmonizing work products across work groups

  • Costly & ineffective process for managing changes and versions across NCOIC product set

  • Inability to support user needs to find all relevant NCOIC information and guidance in context

  • Lack comprehensive solution for compliance, export control, and jurisdictional viewing

Ncoic semantic wiki pilot results for ncoic
NCOIC Semantic Wiki PilotResults for NCOIC

  • Improve collaborative development, access to, and lifecycle management of NCOIC work products — including documents, knowledgebases, and underlying semantic models.

  • Establish an easily used social computing fabric for collaboration and consensus building across all concepts and work products that NCOIC is developing in its multiple working groups.

  • Pilot test a semantic wiki based concept of operations that provides work group collaboration; semantic email discussion; semantic search, query & navigation; content authoring, editing, and review; semantic modeling; harmonization of work products and models; automated change management & versioning; and semantic security, jurisdictional viewing & export control.

  • Enable creation, management and sharing of ontologies aligned with work products that all NCOIC members can share and use in multiple situations, especially to relate NCO problems, operational and technical requirements, force capabilities, architectural frameworks, architectural patterns, standards, and technology enablers.

  • Establish a semantic knowledge base that integrates NCOIC information and ontologies (semantic models) so that all concepts become visible and easily discoverable from a COI and user context perspective, consistent with jurisdictional viewing and export controls.

  • Create knowledge-based, executable NCO tools and collaborative applications that provide value to our stakeholders.



Semantic wiki concept of operation1
Semantic Wiki Concept of Operation

  • Set up a Work Group

  • Research & import information sources & models

  • Explore concepts in team room

  • Collaboratively author, edit work products

  • Build semantic models

  • Review, build consensus, approvals

  • Harmonize concepts across documents & work groups

  • Manage changes and versions

  • Apply security, jurisdictional viewing, export controls

  • Provide semantic search, query, and navigation

  • Automate knowledge extraction and reporting


Concept of operation 1 set up a work group
Concept of Operation—1Set up a Work Group

  • Form a work group in the semantic wiki — Can link to information in Kavi, if desired [ e.g., WG charter, members, work breakdown structure, schedule of meetings/events, schedule of deliverables].

  • Create separate WG semantic wiki environments; also cross-WG semantic wiki environments.

  • Send email invitations to join, email acceptances, establish member roles.


Concept of operation 2 research and import information sources models
Concept of Operation—2Research and import information sources & models

  • Upload WG resources— documents, models, work products, other sources.

  • Extract concepts/relationships found in sources

  • Manage semantic concepts:

    • Concept identity

    • Definition

    • Higher-level classes

    • Lower-level (more detailed) classes

    • Associations (see also)

    • Relationships


Concept of operation 3 explore concepts in team room
Concept of Operation—3Explore concepts in Team Room

  • Engineers from one or more WGs form a “team room” in the semantic wiki to explore concepts, issues, and recommend resolution.

  • Discuss topics, author and post material in wiki, edit content of topic, identify concepts of interest.

  • Conduct threaded discussions in the semantic wiki as well as through email. Email threads include concept references; replies go directly to members as well as post to wiki organized by concept discussion.

  • Semantic wiki captures team room discussion and organizes it by concept.


Concept of operation 4 collaboratively author edit work products
Concept of Operation—4Collaboratively author, edit work products

  • E.g. -- Create an outline for a work product, extract concepts, & assign authoring responsibilities.

  • Author & edit concepts in draft.

    • Import text, graphics, & pictures.

    • Author new text, revisions to text

    • Update concepts, terms, etc.

  • Build document ontology (I.e., concepts & relationships) while authoring and reviewing.


Concept of operation 5 build semantic models
Concept of Operation—5Build semantic models

  • Identify and extract concepts & relationships of interest in a document as OWL instances.

  • Import RDF/OWL models from external source; also, import schemas of databases and XML documents, and expose them semantically.

  • Author, edit semantic models -- add classes, properties, relationships to named models. Most common semantic models are lists, taxonomies (hierarchies), thesauri, concept models, and ontologies.

  • Associate concept instances with classes in the semantic model.

  • Resulting knowledgebase can be semantically searched, queried, navigated & reported.


Concept of operation 6 review revise build consensus gain approval
Concept of Operation—6Review, revise, build consensus, & gain approval

  • Establish a collaborative review process that encourages socialization of concepts and consensus building.

  • Also, a WG can link the work product to a review process setting forth steps, agreements needed, and evidence required for approval.

  • Invite reviewers to read, discuss, comment upon, and revise a WG work product in the wiki.

  • Discuss and comment in the semantic wiki or by semantic email thread that links to concepts in the work product, links to comments from different reviewers, links comments to original text, and makes all contributions visible to all reviewers in real-time.

  • Governance process may culminate with voting, or other annealing process to arrive at consensus.


Concept of operation 7 harmonize concepts across documents work groups
Concept of Operation—7Harmonize concepts across documents & work groups

  • WGs agree on criteria and collaborative process for cross-product harmonization using the semantic wiki.

  • Edit/review cross-product terminology use, consistency, mapping of concepts, alignment of semantic models for gaps, overlaps, conflicts, differences in architectural perspective.

  • Take appropriate actions to resolve issues. Discuss via semantic email threads and posts to semantic wiki. Document resulting harmonization.


Concept of operation 7 harmonize concepts across documents work groups cont
Concept of Operation—7Harmonize concepts across documents & work groups (cont.)

  • As an outcome of harmonization activities:

  • Create and maintain a NCOIC harmonized integrated ontology

  • Create and maintain NCOIC domain ontology specific to WGs:

    • SCOPE Ontology

    • CR Workbook Ontology

    • NCAT Content Ontology

    • NIF Architectural Pattern Ontology

    • Standards Ontology

    • VKR Liaison


Concept of operation 8 manage changes and versions
Concept of Operation—8Manage changes and versions

  • Use the semantic wiki to help automate management of changes, upgrades, and version of NCOIC work group products.

  • Query how proposed changes in content/ concept/ & semantic model affect NCOIC work products. Query result identifies issues and their ownership & suggests resolutions to traceability, conflicts, misalignments, etc..

  • WGs examine issues. Discussions in semantic wiki or via semantic email threads.

  • Document proposed revisions, resolutions.

  • Collaboratively review, consensus building, and governance process leads to approval and version release.


Concept of operation 9 provide semantic search query and navigation
Concept of Operation—9Provide semantic search, query, and navigation

  • Provide semantic search, query, and navigation that makes all NCOIC information visible and discoverable from a community of interest (COI) and end-user context perspective.

  • Provide semantic search, query, and navigation capabilities that deliver more relevant information, more easily than using conventional text, key word, or web-based information retrieval.


Concept of operation 10 apply security jurisdictional viewing export controls
Concept of Operation—10Apply security, jurisdictional viewing, & export controls

  • Implement granular/flexible security, role access, governance, jurisdictional viewing, & export controls in the semantic wiki.

  • Set-up a “policy wiki”. Import authorizing regulations, policies, and guidance documents.

  • Identify & extract governance concepts and incorporate these into semantic security models that govern who can do what, and under what circumstances.

  • “Wire” these concepts into semantic wiki behaviors.

  • Simulate & test to ensure full traceability and accountability from policy document, to model,to system behavior.


Concept of operation 11 automate knowledge extraction reporting
Concept of Operation—11Automate knowledge extraction & reporting

  • Incorporate natural language processing into the semantic wiki

  • Automate knowledge extraction

  • Automate question answering and reporting
