Semantic Hack is a day-long coding event that asks "What could you build if the entire web was your database?" -- and then challenges participants to do it!
Semantic Hack brings together developers and designers to work with advanced web-page extraction technologies, RDF, OWL, SPARQL, linked data, sentiment analysis, newly available datasets, and other semantic technologies that help make the web more readable, accessible and dynamic for humans and more interpretable by machines. PLUS, you don't have to know anything about semantics to attend. If you do, great! But if not, this will be a great way to get started exploring.
Teams will compete to create the most intriguing and innovative apps atop these technologies, driving to win prizes and -- who knows? -- even help to usher in the next phase of the web.
