Knowledge sharing over P2P knowledge networks: A peer ontology and semantic overlay driven approach

By Syed Sibte Raza Abidi and Xiaolin Pang


Effective knowledge sharing between communities of knowledge workers impacts the productivity, innovation and competitiveness of organizations. The emergence of Peer-to-peer (P2P) technology has provided some solutions to knowledge sharing amongst peers. In this paper we present a sophisticated an Agent-based Semantic Knowledge network—ASKnet—that features a unique combination of mobile agents, semantic web and semantic overlay networks to realize an effective knowledge sharing environment. ASKnet enables the sharing of personalized knowledge repositories—typically documents thematically organized by a knowledge worker—of individual knowledge workers with the entire community. The premise here is that if we trust the intellectual ability of the knowledge worker then his/her personalized knowledge repository can be regarded as a source of best-quality, relevant and validated knowledge for that domain/organization.
