Enabling Semantic Web communities with DBin: an overview
In this paper we give an overview of the DBin Semantic Web information manager. Then we describe how it enables users to create and experience the Semantic Web by exchanging RDF knowledge in P2P "topic" channels. Once sufficient information has been collected locally, rich and fast browsing of the Semantic Web becomes possible without generating external traffic or computational load. In this way each client builds and populates a 'personal semantic space' on which user defined rules, trust metrics and filtering can be freely applied. We also discuss issues such as end user interaction and the social aggregation model induced by this novel application.
