Summary
In recent years, tagging systems have become increasingly popular. These systemsenable users to add keywords (tags) to Internet resources (e.g. web pages, images,videos) without relying on a controlled vocabulary. Tagging systems have the poten-tial to improve search and personal organization while introducing new modalitiesof social communication and opportunities for data mining. This potential is largelydue to the social structure that underlies many of the current systems.This thesis analyzes these systems. Specifically, the work is organized in twomain parts: the first one involves a statistical analysis of tags to infer semantics of tag aggregations and the second one is experimental and devoted to discover somesemantic aggregation between resources and tags.
