Knowledge Formalization and Management in KMS

Abstract

Organization and availability of contents in Knowledge Management System (KMS) basically depend on two factors: one is that KMS have effective tools for information indexing and retrieval; the other is how the tools are actually understood and used by users. This work proposes a new approach for formalization and management of knowledge, in this case a group of audio recordings in a corpus and linguistic information added to that corpus with annotations. The formalization level of this approach allows for effective text retrievals through a metadata schema and easy, quick corpus interrogations, by formalizing linguistic annotation as a structured metadata schema. The proposed approach was experimented upon and validated during a project that aimed to create the Analytical Sound Archive of Sardinia. The archive has an electronic corpus of spoken texts, linguistically annotated at various levels.
