INTELLIGENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS:
A CONTRIBUTION TO THE NEXT GENERATION
NATIONAL HERITAGE INFRASTRUCTURE
Abstract. We present some basic concepts of the Intelligent Information Systems (IIS) and further discuss significant qualitative benefits that the approach may contribute to the national heritage infrastructure development. We focus our attention to one of the mechanisms that is crucial for the most of the foreseen benefits: the collaboration mechanisms for community building. This is due to the highly heterogeneous population of prospective users where diverse communities are expected to emerge over the same global information base. Inter- as well as intra-community collaboration, management, interaction, knowledge sharing and dissemination, heterogeneous information integration, and competence building are all addressed within the introduced Collaborative Semantic Web Portal umbrella paradigm. Also, we stress importance of the end-user development in such environments and discuss some supporting mechanisms. Personalization, authorization and context-sensitive configuration are tested on the developed prototype. Finally, based on the prototype, we identify high potential for applying the same approach to development of extremely robust, transparent distributed storage system based on peer-to-peer (P2P) semantic web.
