The Financial Times Builds Up Its Semantic Publishing Infrastructure

ftpixThe former lead architect at the BBC who handled its semantic publishing projects, such as its FIFA World Cup 2010, 2012 Olympics and redesigned BBC Sports Site, today is building up the semantic infrastructure at another media might, The Financial Times

Jem Rayfield, who holds the title Head of Solution Architecture Technology there, is rebuilding the Financial Times’ whole publishing stack to use semantic technology. “We are working on republishing the architecture on the back end, basically engineering the whole of the backend stack to use the RDF model” for data interchange, he says. Its work involves modeling ontologies for companies, organizations, brands, exchanges, shares, financial instruments and other key business terms.

About the Webinar

In our series on The Yosemite Project, we explore RDF as a data standard for health data. In this presentation, we hear from Joshua Mandel, a physician and software engineer affiliated with Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Josh will provide a lightning tour of Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR), an emerging clinical data standard, with a focus on its resource-oriented approach, and a discussion of how FHIR intersects with the Semantic Web. We’ll look at how FHIR represents links between entities; how FHIR represents concepts from standards-based vocabularies; and how a set of FHIR instance data can be represented in RDF.

About the Webinar

In our series on The Yosemite Project, we explore RDF as a data standard for health data. In this presentation, we will discuss with Claude Nanjo, a Software Architect at Cognitive Medical Systems, ways to expose clinical knowledge as OWL and RDF resources on the Web in order to promote greater convergence in the representation of health knowledge in the longer term. We will also explore how one might rally and coordinate the community to seed the Web with a core set of high-value resources and technologies that could greatly enhance health interoperability.

LinkedISA: Semantic Representation of ISA-Tab Experimental Metadata

isaReporting and sharing experimental metadata- such as the experimental design, characteristics of the samples, and procedures applied, along with the analysis results, in a standardised manner ensures that datasets are comprehensible and, in principle, reproducible, comparable and reusable. Furthermore, sharing datasets in formats designed for consumption by humans and machines will also maximize their use. Read more

Frost & Sullivan Analyst on the Pain Points of Electronic Health Records

6322734819_a6c9748c49_zNeil Versel of Forbes recently wrote, “Electronic health records’ usability, or lack thereof, is the big talk this year in health IT, as federal officials get ready to contemplate the rules for Stage 3 of the Meaningful Use EHR incentive program. While Stage 3 will not begin before 2017, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has indicated that it will publish draft regulations in the spring. The hope is to finalize the rules before the end of 2015 so vendors can update their technology and give healthcare providers plenty of time to install and adjust to the updates before they move to Stage 3.” Read more

How Job Sites Could Improve with Semantic Web Technologies

8214124711_a9f6738627_zKurt Cagle, a Principal Evangelist for Semantic Technologies at Avalon Consulting recently wrote, “I’m not a recruiter. I have from time to time submitted resumés for jobs to Monster or Linked-In to individual company sites as a developer or architect, but even there I’ve discovered what millions of job hunters already know: submitting online resumés is a pain. Consider the process. You create a profile, identifying yourself to job submission system X. This site may or may not have a way of uploading a text resumé, but one thing you find in the data management space is that structure matters, and the farther you deviate from the structure, the harder it is for some OCR Artificial Intelligence to actually make sense of what you’ve written.” Read more
