Semantics & Blogs and Linked Data Technologies In The Enterprise

Short presentation

Exploring Semantic Web Data - Roberto García

Roberto will present the Rhizomer tool, intended for semantic data exploration. This tool automatically generates an user interface tailored to the dataset and uses Information Architecture components users are already used to. These components are enriched with some additional functionalities that allow profiting from highly structured data and build complex semantic queries without requiring any knowledge about the underlying technologies or the terms used in the dataset. Roberto is an associate professor at Universitat de Lleida (Spain) and currently visiting the Stanford HCI Group. see link for more info

Semantics & Blogs - Tim Musgrove

In this presentation Tim will present recent case studies that he has done, which are potentially of interest to everyone applying semantics to blogs.  Such as: why the need for semantics in advertising is greater for blogs than it is for other types of content sites. And: how semantics analysis can help you understand why certain blog posts are tweeted/shared/liked more than others (with some surprising findings).

Tim is Chief Scientist at Federated Media Publishing, Inc

Federated Media Publishing powers the Independent Web, and believes that the majority of meaningful engagements across digital media occur via high-quality independent sites and services. These sites leverage top digital talent to attract influential audiences who together create meaningful dialogue. Brands benefit from improved loyalty and increased sales when they become part of this authentic experience. Learn more at

Linked data technologies meet enterprises - with PoolParty - Florian Kondert

    Interested but too far to commute from south bay. Is there a possibility of recording and sharing later?

    August 2, 2012

    • Tim M.

      I don't think we'll have a video recording but at least some of the slides will be posted on Slideshare (or similar).

      August 7, 2012

  • Bharath P.

    Do the presentations begin at 6:30 PM or later? I hope there will be recording of the presentations. Commute at peak hours makes it tough to reach from south bay.

    Teaser: I'll show some stats about the correlations between the reading level (6th grade, 7th grade etc.) of blog posts and their level of amplification on Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.

  • Roger M.

    I regret I'll be out of town and unable to attend. Florian has some outstanding PoolParty semantic attributes to demonstrate.
