In the research Lab Knowledge Management of the DFKI the Open Source Framework www.gnowsis.org is developed. Current research projects, i.e. EPOS http://www.dfki.de/epos build on top of this framework.

The gnowsis framework is capable of representing all information a person has in a standardised data format, the Resource Description Framework, queryable and usable for many different applications. One feature of the Semantic Desktop is that annotations about text and other resources can be used in different applications.

There are different Systems to take notes in daily life. You can take audio notes with your cell phone or audio recorder. You can enter notes into palm systems using bad interface devices like SMS typing or graffiti - the PalmOs text recognition. But the real question is - how to annotate documents the best way? And going further - how can I write notes about an event, a meeting or a Rock Concert so that it is useful for me and the web community? Hardware platform will be tablet pc's or pen-pcs. You will use the standard Microsoft handwriting recognition software. Your task is to use the opportunities given by the Semantic Desktop to create better text and event annotation.
