Abstract [en]

For people working in knowledge intensive organisations, information about specific projects, documents, etc. are important for performing an ordinary workday. Different kinds of problems, large or small, complex or simple, continually arise and need to be dealt with. Finding information or people with specific knowledge to solve the problem may be of crucial importance. Today, a number of technologies exist facilitating this, but they are either not sophisticated enough, i.e., not providing results detailed enough, or too complicated to prepare for, e.g., tagging large amounts of information. As an alternative, we propose using ontologies to facilitate free-text searches. From an ontology, a menu-like interface can be automatically generated. Such a menu can replace searching with navigation. To demonstrate our ideas, we present Context Browser. a tool providing ontology based navigation in structured and unstructured information spaces.
