CI-KNOW is a suite of Java-based software tools that leverages automated data collection and social network theories, analysis techniques and algorithms.

 

The CI-KNOW system mines the knowledge network associated with research communitiesí use of cyberinfrastructure tools, using provenance information and relational metadata from a metadata store through Tupelo 2 to create context-specific recommendations for CyberCollaboratory users. A network navigation portlet allows users to locate colleagues, documents, data or analytic tools in the knowledge network visually and to explore their networks. An internal auditing portlet offers administrators diagnostics for assessing the growth and health of the entire knowledge network.

 

Another example of this capability is the Recommender System built into the CyberIntegrator which:

  • Uses provenance information from the metadata repository (i.e., which tools previous users have most frequently employed for that type of dataset)
  • Recommends tools that could be used with a selected dataset
