The main obstacle to the use of Topic Maps is the cost of the intellectual effort required to construct and maintain the topic map, and automation is the obvious solution to this. Applications of automated classification to Topic Maps and the natural language processing techniques that can be used are described and evaluated. Advice on comparison and selection of tools is given, together with some real-life examples of the use of automated classification to create topic maps.

As a former information scientist, I am fascinated since 1999 by the capabilities for building Topic Maps-based knowledge systems having the potential to augment human mind. One can model arbitrary knowledge organization systems, deal with semantic heterogeneity, collocate all facts about one subject in one logical place, and with TMQL have semantic retrieval on federated semantic networks. Therefore I expect bright prospects for business concepts building on the exchange of such knowledge snippets via semantic knowledge services.
