Problems of ontological analysis use for knowledge representation in Wiki-resources

J.V. Rogushina


The main direction of the Wiki-technologies use for development of information resources of large volume and complex structure, focused on functioning in the  open Web environment is analyzed. We substantiate the demand for intellectualization of the Wiki technology and compare various approaches for its semantic expansion. Such evaluation   shows the expediency of the Semantic MediaWiki use to obtain the necessary expressive power to represent the semantics of the main elements of a Wiki resource, their properties and the relations between them. The relations between the representation of knowledge in the Semantic MediaWiki and the standards of the Semantic Web, which are used for integration of  the Web-oriented intelligent software and knowledge bases are considered. The examples deal with the online version of the Big Ukrainian Encyclopedia (e-VUE) demonstrate the feasibility of us of ontological analysis and development of ontological model for the formal and unambiguous representatio of the structure and content of the knowledge base of the complex Wiki-resource. Methods and means of application of this ontological model for development of e-VUE content and more efficient retrieval and navigation in this information resource are proposed.
