Reuse of Ontologies - Advanced Ontology Rating with Protege
The project is jointly performed by Universität Karlsruhe (TH) and Stanford University, CA, US. The basic idea of Open Rating Systems is to have a democratic approach to rating where anyone can review pieces of content. The real power of this approach lies in the concept of metarating: users can rate not only the content itself but also reviews of the content provided by others. Many people are now familiar with “Was this review helpful to you button on many rating sites. This concept has proven highly successful and is currently employed at Epinions , Slashdot , Amazon (in the user review section), iTunes (to review music), and other sites. The real benefit would lie in the integration into an ontology editor itself directly, because that is the place people will start looking for ontologies to reuse. The goal of the project is to enable reuse of ontologies by implementing an advanced open rating system as part of the well-known ontology editor Protege.
