Living Knowledge supported the organization of the First International Workshop on Living Web: Making Web Diversity a true asset http://livingweb.disi.unitn.it/ collocated with the 8th International Semantic Web Conference. It has been held on the 26th of October in the Westfields Conference Centre, Washington DC., USA, and co-chaired by G. Boato (UNITN) and C. Niederee (L3S).
The goal of this workshop was to discuss and highlight the potentials that are inherent in diversity and that today are only marginally exploited, as well as the risk of biasing through the Web. Furthermore, it was discussed research ideas and results – especially in the area of semantics but also multimedia and linguistic technologies - that are relevant for enabling “Living Web” Technology, i.e., technology that more systematically looks into diversity, helps identifying bias and different viewpoints, and – in summary – leverages diversity for exploiting its full potential to the Web user.
The LK project is funded by the European Commission under Project No. 231126
