First International Workshop on Knowledge Diversity on the Web, Hyderabad 2011
The overall aim of this workshop is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss their ideas related to the challenges posed by diversity on the Web. We aim to address a wide array of interdisciplinary questions, which need to be tackled in order to preserve the fragile balance between a world that is continually converging and growing together, the rich diversity of the global society, and the dangers of fragmentation and splintering. This includes but is not limited to questions such as “How to model diversity?”, “How to discover bias and opinion in blog posts, tweets, forum items, wiki edits, etc.?”, “How to rank, aggregate, summarize, and exploit information in a diversity-aware manner?”, “What are the applications of diversity-rich information sources?”, “How can we use diversity as an asset instead of regarding it as a barrier?”.
