Abstract

In this work we describe Semantic Turkey, a Semantic Extension for the popular web browser Mozilla Firefox. Semantic Turkey can be used to keep track of relevant information from visited web sites and organize collected content according to a personally defined ontology. In this sense, Semantic Turkey can be seen both as an advanced semantic bookmarking system as well as an ontology editing assistant, which allows domain experts and ontology developers to build ontologies starting from the very raw source of information which they find on the web. The open architecture of Semantic Turkey and the specific three-layered approach of its design also allows for scaling the basic personal desktop application embodied by this tool up to a distributed framework for collaborative semantic annotation and ontology editing. This paper describes the architecture and the functionalities of the Semantic Turkey extension for Firefox, and describe possible evolutions for future improvement of the tool.
