SWeeT Web of Heritage

On Wednesday, July 2, at 1.30 p.m. in room P702, T B Dinesh from Janastu, a non-profit organisation providing free open source software, will present the SWeeT Web of Heritage.

Dinesh has a computer science background (Univ Iowa and CWI, NL) and is a founder member of Janastu and International Institute of Art Culture and Democracy in Bangalore, India. Janastu engages in technology research and support for other non-profit, issue based, organizations. IIACD engages in digital humanities, living heritage and community health. We network with pastoral communities developing frameworks for community-managed knowledge, supporting AIDS advocacy programs, post-tsunami rehabilitation, biodiversity and environmental groups, craft communities and open source support for non-profit organizations.

Abstract

Our journey into SWeeTs (“Semantic Web tweeTs”) started with the work on the Re-narration Web which attempts to bridge the gap in web accessibility discourses in addressing the needs of non-literate web users. Heritage Knowledge Bank is an application of this, that we will also discuss, that is being developed for the Indian Digital Heritage project.
