Multimedia knowledge management tools for culture and arts

The CULTOS project develops concepts, systems and tools for knowledge publishing.

It includes a knowledge model of intertextual studies, a standardised hypermedia document model and a prototype multimedia authoring tool for use in the publishing life-cycle.

In order to arrive at a “semantic web”, information technology needs to provide mechanisms that allow domain experts to express their knowledge, and combine that knowledge with medial presentations and illustrations.
