A Peer-to-Peer System for Harvesting Community Knowledge

Time 01/30/02 04:00PM-04:40PM

Session Abstract

Within any organization there is often the need to have access to reliable opinions on a variety of topics. The problem lies in the identification of those who can expertly answer a given query. Current expert finding applications are unable to satisfy the goal of generating high quality user profiles while addressing their privacy concerns. We have developed a p2p system, Shock, which balances the tensions of private and public needs by automatically generating private user profiles through local analysis of data while leveraging the features enabled by peer-to-peer architectures. This talk will describe the Shock architecture and also discuss the incentive issues that need to be addressed in order to have wide participation in such a system.
