BigGrid: Wikipedia experiment

As example of a knowledge creating system which is self-organized we look into WIKIPEDIA. In this study we will confront the way in which Wikipedia articles are linked with the way they are assigned to their categories.

Externally funded project

Knowledge Space Lab

The project “Knowledge Space Lab - mapping knowledge interactively” contributes to the new research area of mapping and modelling of science. The project addresses the difference between representing scholarly knowledge in (external) classification systems (such as thesauri, ontologies, bibliographic systems) and “internal” representations based on data- and user-tagging (such as network analysis, user annotations/tagging, folksonomies).
