The DBin platform: A complete environment for Semantic Web Communities☆
DBin is a Semantic Web application that enables groups of users with a common interest to cooperatively create semantically structured knowledge bases. Such Semantic Web Communities are made possible by creating customized user environments called Brainlets. Brainlets provide user interfaces and domain specific tools (e.g., querying, viewing and editing facilities) that enable community participants to interact with the data of interest. Brainlets are directly created by domain experts using an XML description language. DBin clients communicate and exchange annotations using a P2P infrastructure. Access control and digital signatures, put by DBin inside the authored RDF, enable trust and information filtering.
