Abstract

Social network channels are used to organise public goals, but unstructured conversation presents a challenge for identifying groups focusing on similar issues. To address the problem, we implemented a web system for creating goals from public issues and for discovery of similar goals. We designed SOCIA ontology to structure information as hierarchical goal structure. Potential collaborators can use the hierarchical information in consensus building. We proposed a method to calculate similarity between public goals on the basis of the hierarchical structure. To apply our proposed method to real-life situation, we designed and implemented an easy-to-use user interface to structure public goals by citizens. We are arranging workshops to use the system in real-life setting for gathering local issues from citizens of Ogaki city to formulate public goals to solve them. We will use the experiences gained from the workshops to improve the system for deployment for open use by communities to utilise open innovation in decision making and for facilitating collaboration between governmental agents and citizens.
