Abstract

This chapter is concerned with the evolution of terminological ontologies used for representing personal knowledge. It first argues that each member of the knowledge society will need a personal knowledge model representing his/her knowledge. Subsequently, it presents a method for implicitly and collaboratively evolving such personal knowledge models, improving by these means the knowledge transfer in the knowledge society over the Internet. The authors hope that an understanding of the importance of personal terminological ontologies, and especially of a low-bias approach to their implicit and collaborative evolution, will contribute to the transformation from the information to the knowledge society.
