@GeeknRolla: iGlue lets you build your own Wikipedia over the Web

iGlue is a knowledge organisation service which creates an additional information layer over web pages. In other words it can understand a web page’s content and start building a database of knowledge. No, it’s not another Google, but when applied to a web page, iGlue recognizes names of relevant entities, such as people, geographical locations, institutions etc. and on the spot displays related data, images, videos, events in a timeline.

iGlue analyses page content in real time, utilising “various natural language processing and machine learning techniques”. The user community can also add their own entries and data, potentially turning any website into a Wiki-like, multimedia-rich resource.

CEO Péter Vaskó told the second GeeknRolla start-up panel of the day that he wants to “wikify the web”, meaning to analyse the web and give semantic, language-based filtering of online content. The iGlue algorithm – which can be embedded into browsers via a widget – can give users more detailed information on individual people, places or just about anything.

But like Wikipedia, the real strength is in the audience’s contributions: “Everybody can annotate web pages, any time, anywhere in real time and everyone can see it,” as Vaskó puts it.
