Keynote - Jack Park talks about
"Topic Mapping: A View of the Road Ahead"
This talk offers one view, among many possible views, of the road ahead
for topic mapping. We will propose that the indexical and relational
properties of topic maps offer opportunities well beyond the
organization and presentation of information resources. Tenets of
evolutionary epistemology suggest a particular area of inspiration, the
potential marriage of topic maps with other knowledge technologies. The
talk is intended to inspire further discussion and research in this
area, and will animate the discussion with a sketch of a candiate
composition between topic maps and conceptual graphs.
October 6th, 9.00 a.m.
Jack Park is currently employed as a research software developer at SRI
International, in Menlo Park, California, where he is a member of a team
developing software that will serve to assist people performing
knowledge-related tasks by reducing cognitive overload associated with
collecting, organizing, and interpreting large bodies of existing
information coupled with inflows of new information. Park edited,
produced, and co-authored the book XML Topic Maps: Creating and Using
Topic Maps for the Web, published in 2002 by Addison-Wesley. He spends
much of his free time developing topic maps for the web, and watching
his two children study their way through college.
