CroKnow: tructured Crowd Knowledge Creation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeConference contributionScientificpeer-review


This demo presents the CrowdKnowledge Curator (CroKnow), a novel web-based platform that streamlines the processes required to enrich existing knowledge bases (e.g. Wikis) by tapping on the latent knowledge of expert contributors in online platforms. The platform integrates a number of tools aimed at supporting the identification of missing data from existing structured resources, the specification of strategies to identify and invite candidate experts from open communities, and the visualisation of the knowledge creation process status. CroKnow will be demonstrated through a case study focusing on the enrichment of the Rijksmuseum Amsterdams digital collection.
