Anthony Myers of CMS Wire recently shared a few highlights from SemTechBiz SF. He writes, “Semantic Web technology is slowly changing the way people use the Internet, and SemTech 2012 is a prime showcase for the best minds in linked data, enterprise solutions and interactive Web experiences. That’s because semantic technology is approaching widestream adoption, and Google’s recent launch of the Knowledge Graph platform is one such manifestation of the technology’s mainstream appeal. At day three of the SemTech 2012 Conference in San Francisco, companies such as Google, Microsoft, NASA, the BBC and the New York Times gathered to present their visions on Web standards of the future. Specifically, many presenters focused on how they are using linked data to better locate, relate and translate content for the best possible Web experience.”

He continues, “Jem Rayfield was on hand at Semtech 2012 to introduce the BBC’s new 2012 Summer Olympics website, which takes advantage of RDF data and a dynamic semantic publishing (DSP) architecture. Rayfield is s senior technical architect for the BBC Future Technology division, and the company expects to get 10 million page views a day to the 10,000 Web pages on the Olympic site, he said. So, this will no doubt be the largest semantic technology implementation yet for a media site.”
