AAAI-2010 Workshop on Collaboratively-built Knowledge Sources
and Artificial Intelligence
Atlanta, Georgia
July 11th or 12th 2010

*** Submission deadline: March 29th 2010 ***


In recent years, collaborative efforts facilitated by the Internet seem
to have the answer for the knowledge acquisition bottleneck. More and more
resources and collaborative endeavours have started to be incorporated and
exploited as knowledge repositories for various tasks. Wikipedia with its
many facets and knowledge bearing structuring, the tags associated with
images in Flickr, question-answer collections in Yahoo! Answers are a few
examples of such information sources. Amazon's Mechanical Turk gives
researchers access to "human computation" power, and is being used more
and more as a solution to the difficult problems of large scale
evaluations and data annotation, both crucial for the continuous
development of the AI and NLP fields.

AI and NLP have the potential to both exploit and dig deeper in the mines
of collective knowledge, and to help build them, by providing tools for
helping generate more, better and consistent content. As with the previous
events, we believe work in this area should be encouraged, followed and
popularized, to promote the synergy between repositories of
user-contributed knowledge and research in Artificial Intelligence.

The workshop is intended to be highly interdisciplinary. We encourage
participation of researchers from different perspectives, including (but
not limited to) machine learning, computational linguistics, information
retrieval, information extraction, question answering, knowledge
representation, human computer interaction and others. We also encourage
participation of researchers from other areas who might benefit from the
use of large bodies of machine-readable knowledge.

An upcoming special issue of the Artificial Intelligence Journal
will be devoted to the topic of "Artificial Intelligence, Wikipedia,
and Semi-Structured Resources".


Topics covered by this workshop include, but are not limited to:

* Using user-contributed knowledge as a source of training data
for AI tasks (both supervised and unsupervised)
* Automatic methods for improving the quality of user contributions
* Modeling tasks for human computation
* Integrating different resources (e.g. Wikipedia and WN/Cyc/other
* Extracting annotated data from user contributions
* Enriching user contributions with new types of structural information
* User-contributed knowledge and the Semantic Web/Web 2.0
* Automatic extraction and use of cross-lingual information
* Computerized use of satellite Wiki projects such as Wiktionary,
Wikibooks or Wikispecies
* Human computation like Amazon Mechanical Turk to help AI tasks
* Data mining on collaboratively-contributed resources
* Innovative graph algorithms exploiting collaborative resources
* Word Sense Disambiguation with Wikipedia, Wiktionary, etc.
