The stream of reports produced by organizations is ever increasing. A wealth of knowledge, but not easy to manage. The promise of the Semantic Web is to make this knowledge more accessible as long as it is published in a machine-readable format. After a decade, the portion of semantic content is still marginal. Natural language processing can help bridging the gap between documents and knowledge, but existing platforms typically operate on static (snapshots of) document sets.
The CoDAK platform is both a knowledge base and a document manager. The knowledge base is developed semi-automatically, and in parallel with the evolving document collection. CoDAK keeps the documents and knowledge in sync by propagating changes in either direction.
