Augmented Reality Lounge

Augmented Reality is an emerging technology and the Semantic Web is an ideal candidate to become the fabric for Augmented Reality applications. The global availability of the web and the flexibility of RDF, make it a perfect match for distributed, heterogeneous and networked applications that can help to enable emergent Augmented Reality services.

In this informal session we will introduce some of the key concepts and discuss how the Augmented Reality conversation can immediately benefit from Semantic Web technologies and concepts. The key Semantic Web technologies are now in place and can finally start to deliver real benefits. After all the goal is to realize and bring the web to it's full potential. As this will also be our Web 2.0 Expo pre-panel session get-together this year you might have the opportunity to meet the following people at the event


  • Robert Rice: CEO of Neogence, Chairman of the Augmented Reality Consortium
  • Ori Inbar: Co-founder and CEO of Ogmento
  • Jack Mason: Global Business Services, Strategic Programs and Social Media at IBM
  • Lynne d Johnson: SVP Social Media at the Advertising Research Foundation and host of the NYC Android Developer's Meetup
  • Erik Manley: Manager, Digital Media at GE
  • Michael Eisenreich: Technology Leader for GE's company-wide Internet presence
  • Marco Neumann: CEO and Founder of KONA, Lead Organizer for New York and San Francisco Semantic Web Meetup
  • Matt Szymczyk: CEO of Zugara
  • John C. Havens: VP, Social Media at Porter Novelli.

    Seems like this is a good example of the potential intersection of AR and semantic web: http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/cense_hp_labs.php

    Someone introduced themselves and explained that they were working on (I believe) a language algorithm that would "take language to the next step" (kind of a Semantic-web turbo-d Esperanto) based on Asian language principles of logogram-based "alphabets." He was sitting on the right side of the audience (for those of us in the audience). I would really like to get in touch with this person, if anyone remembers his name. Thanks.

    The whole experience was transcendent. I felt that something was added to my life.

    Fascinating topic. Panel was great. Wish we had more time to discuss the direct relationship between AR and the semantic web.
