ABSTRACT ABSTRACT Ontologies and ,tagging ,systems ,are two ,different ways ,to organize,the knowledge ,present in Web. ,The first one ,has a formal,fundamental ,that derives ,from ,descriptive logic and artificial intelligence. The other one is simpler ,and it integrates heterogeneous contents, and it is based on the collaboration of users in the Web 2.0. In this paper we propose a method to model tagging,systems ,like folksonomies ,using ontologies. In our proposal, structured information (ontologies) can be extracted from,knowledge ,built in a ,simple ,and ,collaborative ,way (folksonomies). Furthermore, we provide an analytical expression to evaluate the system requirements to store the derived ontology.

    ABSTRACT: Folksonomies are a widely used tool of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize Internet resources (Web 2.0). The process of annotation and tag management by users of social networks is extremely easy and simple; however, it involves serious problems of navigation and search unlike what happens with taxonomies, thesauri and ontologies. The use of fuzzy similarity measures allows the correct identification of syntactic variations when tag lengths are greater or equal than five symbols, been inadequate for smaller length tags. This article presents a method that combines both fuzzy similarity and cosine measures in order to provide a proper classification of tags even with smaller tag lengths. This method allows the proper classification of the 95% of the syntactic variations of tags analyzed in the experiments.

    ABSTRACT: "Skills and Expertise" is a data-driven feature on LinkedIn, the world's largest professional online social network, which allows members to tag themselves with topics representing their areas of expertise. In this work, we present our experiences developing this large-scale topic extraction pipeline, which includes constructing a folksonomy of skills and expertise and implementing an inference and recommender system for skills. We also discuss a consequent set of applications, such as Endorsements, which allows members to tag themselves with topics representing their areas of expertise and for their connections to provide social proof, via an "endorse" action, of that member's competence in that topic.

    ABSTRACT: An exponentially growing amount of music and sound re-sources are being shared by communities of users on the Internet. Social media content can be found with different levels of structuring, and the contributing users might be experts or non-experts of the domain. Har-vesting and structuring this information semantically would be very use-ful in context-aware Music Information Retrieval (MIR). Until now, scant research in this field has taken advantage of the use of formal knowledge representations in the process of structuring information. We propose a methodology that combines Social Media Mining, Knowledge Extrac-tion and Natural Language Processing techniques, to extract meaningful context information from social data. By using the extracted informa-tion we aim to improve retrieval, discovery and annotation of music and sound resources. We define three different scenarios to test and develop our methodology.
