Data Integration is Key for Improving Customer Experience

One of the more prominent application areas for semantic technology, particularly in the ever-evolving world of Big Data, is data integration. Randy Heffner of Computer World UK recently published an article that discusses how effective data integration improves digital customer experiences and the role semantic analysis plays in that process. The article states, “Today, continual experience optimisation is… difficult because of: (1) Multiple interaction channels. You must collect, correlate, and analyze data in a coherent way across multiple channels of customer interaction. A single customer interaction may cross between channels or even use more than one channel at the same time. (2) Many back end servers. You must integrate data from multiple back end servers including recommendation engines, commerce, mobile application servers, digital asset management, community, collaboration, messaging, and more. (3) The need for rapid change. You must quickly change any or all of your digital experiences and back end services based on what you’ve learned. (4) The need for contextual experiences. You must use each individual customer’s context to dynamically adjust experiences in real-time.” Read more

Metaome Helps Bench Biologists Get More Value From Linked Data

How to help the bench biologist get value out of the wealth of life sciences Linked Data sets? Startup Metaome Science Informatics proposes to offer some help with its DistilBio semantic search and data integration technology, by streamlining the approach to posing user queries. The Distil in DistilBio stands for Data Integration using Semantic Technologies in the Life Sciences.

Metaome, which was founded by CEO Kalpana Krishnaswami and CTO Ramkumar Nandakumar as a bioinformatics services provider before transitioning to a product vendor, contains a few more than a dozen life sciences public data sets so far. Infomaticians in the life sciences space have the expertise to query such data across sets via SPARQL, but the front-line biologist isn’t necessarily an infomatician. So, DistilBio has created a query interface that makes it easier for them to ask large and complex questions in a simplified way across data sets while building a graph in the process.

“How does a user say what are the drugs used for Alzheimer’s disease and do have they have certain protein targets and are those protein targets implicated in other diseases?” says Krishnaswami. “To ask that in one shot right now is hard without working through a SPARQL endpoint using all the SPARQL syntax.”
