The SemanticLink Podcast – December Review (and beyond)

Eric Hoffer, a regular panelist on The SemanticLink monthly podcast, summed up the most recent episode calling it a review of the past year and a look forward. Hoffer writes, “The framework for the discussion was: (1) What company, technology or issue caught your attention in 2011? (2) Are we ‘there’ yet? (3) What are people watching for 2012?” Topics that were discussed included: “schema.org and its impact on who pays attention (i.e. SEO space); linked data (and open data); increase in policy maker awareness of the need to pay attention to interoperability issues; commercial integration of technology (ontologies plus nlp capabilities) to leverage unstructured content; and of course Siri (a key example of such integration).” Read more

Looking Ahead to SemTech

On Saturday, I once again board a plane from London to San Francisco; the first of two trips to the city in June, and my fourth (or possibly fifth?) time attending the Semantic Technology Conference.

The conference itself is in its seventh year, and now seems settled into its San Francisco home after a number of years further down the Bay in San Jose. As in previous years, the programme is rich, varied, and packed with so many parallel tracks that it can at first seem daunting for both newcomers and old hands alike. In a bid to make things a bit easier for people, we’re gathering the friendly team from the monthly Semantic Link podcast, and sticking them up on stage on Sunday evening to pick out their highlights for the week ahead. I’m sure they’ll also offer hints and tips for navigating the corridors and session rooms, and possibly even flag up the best of the secret roof-top parties. Read more
