We present a novel architecture for the integration of Natural Language Processing (NLP) capabilities into wiki systems. The vision is that of a new generation of wikis that can help developing their own primary content and organize their structure by using state-of-the-art technologies from the NLP and Semantic Computing domains. The motivation for this integration is to enable wiki users – novice or expert – to benefit from modern text mining techniques directly within their wiki environment. We implemented these ideas based on MediaWiki and present a number of real-world application case studies that illustrate the practicability and effectiveness of this approach.
