S4 – Social Networking and Web 2.0

More efforts are needed nowadays to solve the problem of how to automate the production of the large quantity of resources required and, at the same time, of how to ensure the necessary quality to get acceptable results in industrial environments.

This session aims at discovering what social networking and Web 2.0 techniques can offer for the future of language resources and, in particular, how can language resources profit from social networking / Web 2.0 techniques, for instance from collaboratively constructed semantic resources (game-based, etc.), or, the other way round, how to exploit existing collaboratively constructed resources (such as Wikipedia, Wiktionary, folksonomies, Mechanical Turk) in order to derive linguistic knowledge to build new language resources or increase already existing ones (e.g. using special features of collaboratively constructed resources to create novel resource types or mining content from collaboratively constructed resources).
