Exploring Semantic Web Data - Roberto García (http://rhizomik.net/~roberto/)
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 http://rhizomik.net/rhizomer/
Semantics & Blogs - Tim Musgrove (http://about.me/tmusgrove)
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).
