Combining Public and Proprietary Data, NLP and What do we need in "RDF 2.0"?

  • February 4, 2010 · 6:30 PM
  • New York's Hotel Pennsylvania

Please be advised that the doors open at 6pm but the speakers will more than likely not begin their presentation before 6.45pm.

1. Short introduction to NLP and Semantic Web agenda (10 min) - Breck Baldwin (alias-i)

2. Combining public and proprietary data to add value to both (Bob DuCharme)

Some semantic web applications convert all data to RDF triples, store them in a triplestore database, and then build applications around that stored data. Many tools are available, though, that let you treat data from diverse sources such as spreadsheets, relational databases, and Wikipedia as triples, and once you do, you can easily mix and match them to create new value from the combinations. Bob will demonstrate how to do this with both open source tools and those of his company, TopQuadrant, using dummy data about analyst recommendations for stock picks.

3. Requirements for a possible "RDF 2.0" discussion- Moderator: Chris Welty (IBM Research)

    I think there has to be a better targeting of presentations to experience levels. Much of Bob's presentation was a pitch for the Semantic Web and an introduction for bare bones beginners - things that advanced and even intermediate users already know. The application was interesting, but describing it was only about 20% of the talk. I think it would have been better to spend more time on the application and how to extend it.

    Good topics, showing the wide range of content and technology embodied by the Semantic Web.

    Bob DuCharme's presentation was very good -- SPARQL examples highlighted his comments on combining data. Covered lots of material in a short time.

    This was a very interesting and informative session. The presentation by Bob DuCharme was clear and convincing about the ease of use of tools exploiting RDF data, and the discussion led by Chris Welty about the future of RDF was enlightening. Thanks to the speakers and the organizers.

    Great, really enjoyed myself. Exactly what I was looking for/hoped it would be. Glad I finally made it & I look forward to the next one.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
