Semantics is the future of Search. And Search is the future of Semantics with Stephen Buxton

The BBC introduced the notion of Dynamic Semantic Publishing with its Sports web site platform - an award-winning platform that served rich, dynamic, personalized web pages during the World Cup 2010, and then broke records with its reporting of the 2012 Olympics. At the heart of this platform are two databases - one for managing documents and statistics (MarkLogic), the other for managing facts and relationships. What if those two databases were one? What new applications - impossible or impractical today - could you build? MarkLogic is well known as a document-based NoSQL database, with an integrated search engine for very fast Big Data-scale search and facets. In this talk we'll look at what happens when you add Semantic Technologies - RDF and SPARQL - to MarkLogic. We'll explore some interesting combinations of traditional and semantic search, and we’ll talk about the rich applications that you can build when you have access to documents, values, and facts (triples) in a single seamless platform.

Stephen Buxton is Director of Product Management for Search and Semantics at MarkLogic, where he’s part of the team that builds the world’s only enterprise-grade NoSQL database . Stephen is co-author (with Jim Melton) of the authoritative book "Querying XML", and a contributor to "Database Design", a book in Morgan Kaufman's "Know It All" series. Before joining MarkLogic, Stephen was Director of Product Management for Text and XML at Oracle Corporation.

    I don't know if they make sense on their own - I'll put a video/voiceover together at some point.
    My e-mail address is on the last slide.

    Hello, Marco asked me to say hi. Just so happens I'm in New York next week and Marco has kindly allowed me to join the the lotico event for one meet, which is both lucky for me and seems relevant as the BBC semantic publishing model being referenced in the Marklogic talk was the strategy I developed when I was Chief Architect at BBC news and sport. Looking forward to joining you all at the event.

    Hopefully I can add some extra context to the discussion around how to make semantic technology work and what I think semantic publishing means as a pattern for the future.
