Cambridge Semantic Web Monthly Meetup




Presenter:  Fuming Shih   20-30 min

The project that will be presented is called "SaveFace" which crawls all your facebook data (not including images) and save them as RDF in a triple store and ready for SPARQL query. This project used Joseki for the SPARQL endpoint.  


Group Discussion -- Suggestions for 2012

The Organizers would like to hear from the group ideas about topics for presentations, agenda items, etc., for 2012 and beyond. To get us started, here are just a few items to consider:

* Vendor panel (short presentations by a panel of 3-5 vendors, followed by discussion/Q&A

* Semantic Web and Big Data

* Semantic Web in <insert your favorite domain here>

(Ted will moderate)

    Good presentation, excellent discussion afterward. Many were interested and will benefit from the work we're doing in the W3C Provenance Working Group, so I link it here --

    No problem. I would also highly recommend setting up a few daily Google Alerts for NLP and whatever else you might be interested in. It's the next best thing to enterprise-class media monitoring, and can be very helpful.

    Hi Matt - I'm a big fan of
    This should more properly be called an aggregator, because the blog doesn't editorialize about its posts (just links them from other sources). Still, it's a great resource for on-the-minute research and business news.

    I'm also a big fan of Seth Grimes' blogs -

    He's a visionary reporter on the text analysis industry

    The presentation was a natural progression from the last two meetups.
    I really liked the brainstorming for future topics much to my surprise.

    Presenter was pretty good - I love the project, but there wasn't too much semantic-specific content.
    I like having people introduce themselves, to get a sense of what fields people are coming from. I also learned a lot from the post-talk discussion.
    The best part of the night, this time, was a phenomenal discussion afterwards at the bar about the conceptual underpinnings of all of this stuff - didn't leave until nearly 10pm!

    2012 topic planning is starting to sound like a conference description (+/-)?

  • Ted S.

    Fuming Shih is telling us about SaveFace.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
