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

TIME: 2 PM Eastern / 11 AM Pacific
PRICE: Free to all attendees
DESCRIPTION: In our series on The Yosemite Project, we explore RDF as a data standard for health data. Our speaker, Joshua Mandel, 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.

TITLE: Achieving Clinical Knowledge Convergence and Interoperability
DATE: Friday, December 5, 2014
TIME: 2 PM Eastern / 11 AM Pacific
PRICE: Free to all attendees
DESCRIPTION: 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.

About the Webinar

In our series on The Yosemite Project, we explore RDF as a data standard for health data. In this installment, we will hear from Conor Dowling, CTO of Caregraf about “The Ideal Medium for Health Data? A Dive into Lab Tests.”
Lab tests and results have many dimensions from substances measured to timing to the condition of a patient. This presentation will show how RDF is the best medium to fully capture this highly nuanced data.

New Study Shows Electronic Health Records on the Rise

5669123427_44d1da0ebf_mBob Violino of Information Management reports, “Electronic health records (EHR) uptake in the U.S. has accelerated dramatically as a result of government initiatives and the considerable resources healthcare providers have invested over the past five years, says research firm Frost & Sullivan. Electronic health records have become the heart of health IT, the firm says, and U.S. clinicians use them on a daily basis. Frost & Sullivan’s latest health IT analysis, ‘EHR Usability—CIOs Weigh in On What’s Needed to Improve Information Retrieval,’ finds that as the market matures and the volume of EHR data proliferates, ensuring reliable information retrieval from EHRs at the point-of-care will become a priority for healthcare providers.” Read more

Metreeca Offers Easier Interaction With Semantic Knowledge Bases

griverAccessing an enterprise’s semantic knowledge base has its challenges for the business’ general population. Perhaps development teams already have integrated specific SPARQL queries inside a customer app or custom dashboard or otherwise accommodated some very task-oriented activities and searches, but that has its limits for non-technical users who want to explore outside the box. All the same, these users aren’t likely to write new SPARQL queries on their own — but nor do they necessarily want to wait for their IT departments to pull that together for them. Interactive query builders are options but some may find these still a little too-technically oriented.

This is a problem that Metreeca is looking to solve with Graph Rover, a self-service search and analysis tool that enables non technical users to interact visually with semantic knowledge bases. It has just released the latest beta update of the product, which lets users build queries using a graphical interface, but Graph Rover has been in development for two years while the company was in stealth mode, and tech lead Alessandro Bollini says it is already a mature solution that should be available commercially in the first quarter of 2015.
