1 Tree of Knowledge Team LOST

2 The Problem  Unclear texts  Usually a text will be unclear when there is a difference between the author’s meaning and the reader’s interpretation which presents itself in vague words and ideas, difficulties and contradictions, and many questions that arise from the text.  When given an unclear text the mission is to get as close as you can to the meanings of the author.

3 The Problem (cont.)  The more the text is vague the more information gathers around it. This information comes to solve the difficulties that arise from the text.  Controlling this information is the key to understanding the text.

4 The Problem (cont.)  This mission is very difficult considering the amount and nature of the information surrounding the document.  The information is scattered around the globe, written by different authors (with different credibility), relating to different aspects of the text.  It is necessary to go over the information, to distinct the important points and to organize them.  A single person cannot complete this task in a reasonable time.

5 The Solution  Tree of knowledge (ToK) is a data management system.  Tok’s main purpose is to help the user in understanding unclear texts  When given an unclear text the mission is to get as close as you can to the meanings of the author.  Given a main text and different information sources regarding this text ToK enables the user to gather, organize and connect information between the sources and the main text.  Tok allows the user to easily browse the gathered information.

6 Terms  Root – the text the user wishes to understand.  Source – a text that is brought in order to shed light on unclear parts of the Root.

7 Terms (cont.)  Discussion – a topic from the root on which the user wishes to concentrate  Quote – a selected fragment of text from a source.  Opinion – a group of quotes that share a common idea. A group of opinions construct a discussion.

8 Terms (cont.)  Relation – a connection made between opinions and quotes.  Link – a connection between a discussion and its roots.  Tree of Knowledge – a collection of sources and discussions that include opinions and quotes. These all relate to the root(s).
