Gi2MO Ontology is a schema for Idea Management System metadata that we maintain as an implementation of the interchangeable data model proposed by the Gi2MO Project. Along the road we have shown a number of uses of the ontology for: distributed data visualisation, semantic search, data integration etc.
As a followup to our paper on idea similarity presented in October during the CollaborateCom conference, we introduce an update to the Gi2MO Ontology by adding an extended hierarchy of idea relationships: Gi2MO Links.
During our studies with various idea datasets like Ubuntu Brainstorm or Dell IdeaStorm we noticed that there is quite a lot more connections between ideas than just the currently collected duplicate information. Therefore, Gi2MO Links lists and names those missing relationship types, as well as puts them into a hierarchy that enables a variety of knowledge management opportunities.
In our case study, we analysed the usage of Gi2MO Links for idea clustering and information summarisation. The results were quite impressive giving us a 95% increase in the amount of detected relationships in comparison to duplicate detection. For more details see the paper, poster and presentation slides from the talk during CollaborateCom.
The hierarchy and a brief explanation of its usage can be seen under the modelling section. Additionally, all new relationships have been incorporated into the new version of the Gi2MO Ontology – Gi2MO v0.6.
