Mobile Meets Semantic Web

George Harrison, former VP Marketing for Nintendo and T-Mobile Carl Schwab, Executive Director of the Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium (NCOIC)

Robert Kruse, President of FacetApp, will be sharing his vision of a new class of Semantic Enterprise Applications with integrated mobile capabilities. FacetApp is seeking to partner with SURF members who are interested in applying the OntoApp Platform to the mobile and enterprise application markets.


For several years, Robert has been gathering together a consortium of companies and organizations who are dedicated to building various elements to support Tim Berners-Lee's vision for the future of the Semantic Web. A world where intelligent enterprise applications are semantically



FacetApp will be presenting an opportunity for programmers to learn specific problems and solutions for simplifying the effort to build a better and more “intelligent” Internet. Mr. Kruse will also share a number of significant opportunities for developers building specific widget components and applications as part of the FacetApp platform called OntoApp.


Programmers will be able to earn revenues for the widgets and applications they create using this cutting edge disruptive capability that centers on reusable objects for building more complex apps faster with lower maintenance costs. Semantic Web can solve some very large and extremely complex problems.


An example problem seeking support will be presented by Carl Schwab, Executive Director of the Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium (NCOIC). Mr. Schwab will explain how SURF Incubator members that build applications that are compatible with semantic web standards, like that offered by FacetApp, will be eligible to participate in one of our first target contracts for a Federal Agency that is offering 1.5 million dollars to address the problems of disaster management and

Emergency Response, before the next Global disaster strikes.


Your App could get visibility among the leading experts and Fortune 100 firms currently engaged in this effort, who may seek additional developer support. Be among the first to leverage the fast growing semantic Linked Data Sets at,, and into your enterprise and mobile applications. Bring a new level of power and data-driven insight into your business model.

Some of what you will learn

1) What is Semantic Web and why you need to know more
2) Working examples of Powerful Semantic Enterprise Applications
3) How the OntoApp platform and modules work together
4) How non-programmers can build powerful semantic enterprise apps within a week
5) Current targeted projects that range from Emergency Response, Insurance, Supply Chain, and Financial Services
6) How you can be part of the process

    First off, thanks to SURF for putting this on. It seemed like a marketing pitch aimed at management types. There was very little that was revealed about the developer API. If this project was Open Source, I might jump on it. As it stands, developers don't need another form of vendor lock-in.
