English abstract

Technological advances dramatically changed the approaches in information representation and retrieval. There are two broad approaches to the knowledge representation; one is informal, dynamic, free, user-dependent and the other is formal, more stable, solid, static and system-dependant: Folksonomies a breed of the Web 2.0 and ontologies the backbone of semantic web (web 3.0) are two examples of those approaches. In this paper, we try to present two sub-models of an integrated system in which each technology has the opportunity to reduce its current limits, by exploiting the power provided by the other one. In order to develop sub-models, we present a simple ontology of folksonomy to show how different elements act in such a dynamic space, and how implicit relations emerge from implicit complex networks within the folksonomies.
