Aloha and the art of semantic web content

To bring CMS editing to the next level, the IKS project is working on a semantic HTML5 editor. This week we had a hackathon in Helsinki focusing on implementing our ideas with the Aloha Editor. In addition to enjoying the hot summer weather here, we accomplished quite a bit and in the end were able to present the whole pipeline of:

  • Loading content from Midgard CMS to Aloha Editor
  • Annotating our content with Google-compatible Person RDFa elements
  • Saving the content back to Midgard
  • ...and finally analysing the content with FISE to find more semantic information

The hackathon participants included developers from Nemein, Gentics, Infigo, Salzburg Research and the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence. Some screenshots:
