Cambridge Semantic Web Monthly Meetup




Tom Plasterer, AstraZeneca: The Path to Linked Data in BioPharma. “Driven by market pressures the Biopharmaceutical industry can no longer sustain the current business model focused on blockbuster drugs encumbered by monolithic supply chains and poor collaboration.  As this model changes to incorporate nimble networks of suppliers, collaborators, partners and regulators the industry can use linked data principles to better interoperate in this dynamic environment allowing it to focus on its core business of delivering valuable pharmaceuticals in a timely manner.”

Evren Sirin, Clark & Parsia: Stardog 1.0.  “This talk will describe Stardog, an RDF database that is fast, zero config, lightweight, and feature-rich. We will talk about the features of Stardog 1.0 such as very fast query answering, free text search, transactions, OWL 2 reasoning, and Integrity Constraint validation. The differences between commercial Stardog Enterprise and free Stardog Community versions will be explained.”

    Tom says he'll try to get his slides up on slideshare in the next few weeks. In the mean time, he passed along these links/references. (Hopefully wont mangle them too badly.)

    Meanwhile, his links/references are here:

    Good presentations, but I always like to see specific examples or demos.

    Another good one. Not everyone's interested in the same things, but these were both good for me. Evrin should have given more cool technical details, though!

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.
