Modern software systems provide us with several possibilities, though it is the information technology engineers who should ensure the necessary software backgrounds for those users who are not specialists of information technology but another fields of science (e.g.: masters of liberal arts, mechanical engineers, architects, medical doctors, university teachers). The systems that are developed for these professionals might make their everyday work easier.
For instance, the experts of art studies who would like to record their notes (grammatical explanations, historical relationships etc.) into a computer system may face the problem that the user and the software do not use the same language as the system expects concrete values and logical links while the users phrase their thoughts into compound sentences.
In my thesis, I have planned and developed a special software-system which is suitable both for taking notes for critical essays in a user-friendly way and the extraction of knowledge from annotations. The system supports taking in inputs with so-called con-trolled natural language thereby it creates a common communication platform between human and machine.
