Ethical Dimension in Knowledge Organization Systems and Applicable Architecture for Intercultural Interface Design

By Quoc-Tan Tran


International audienceThis paper looks into matters of cultural interoperability in knowledge organization, which can be briefly defined as “the degree to which knowledge and information is anchored to a unified model of meaning across cultures” (Vossen et al., 2011). It examines the potential for creating and monitoring globally accessible, ethically and culturally acceptable KOSs. A high-level and widely applicable architecture for intercultural interface design, which could serve as a model in local KOSs and emphasizes interoperability with global KOSs, will be specified. This is also needed to take into account the emergence of local KOSs’ adaptations and their connections to the linked open data. Thus this work focuses on two aspects: the development of conceptual and operational framework to tackle ethical dimension in KOS, and the implementation of intercultural interface design
