RoSE, or Research-oriented Social Environment, is a new social network aimed at tracking the academic world in a timeless manner that would organize ever-expanding profiles of authors such as Shakespeare, Wordsworth and Robert Frost, as well as current academics and their work.
The focus of the social network is to allow researchers the opportunity to learn more about an idea or author through their influences and relationships with other authors and ideas on a social-document graph. The graph would include research by current academics, and is based on the notion that even Shakespeare’s profile would still be changing due to continuous research. An author of such new research would then also be linked to Shakepeare’s profile.
Research-oriented Social Environment is a project of the University of California.
