Mark Albertson of the Examiner recently wrote, “It was an unusual sight to be sure. Standing on a convention center stage together were computer engineers from the four largest search providers in the world (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft Bing, and Yandex). Normally, this group couldn’t even agree on where to go for dinner, but this week in San Jose, California they were united by a common cause: the Semantic Web… At the Semantic Technology and Business Conference is San Jose this week, researchers from around the world gathered to discuss how far they have come and the mountain of work still ahead of them.” Read more

There’s a chance to learn everything you should know about RDF to get the most value from the W3C standard model for data interchange at the 10th annual Semantic Technology & Business Conference in San Jose next month. David Booth, senior software architect at Hawaii Resource Group, will be hosting a session explaining how the standard’s unique capabilities can have a profound effect on projects that seek to connect data coming in from multiple sources.
“One of the assumptions that people make looking at RDF is that it is analogous to any other data format, like JSON or XML,” says Booth, who is working at the Hawaii Research Group’s on a contract the firm has with the U.S. Department of Defense to use semantic web technologies to achieve healthcare data interoperability. “It isn’t.” RDF, he explains, isn’t just another data format – rather, it’s about the information content that is encoded in the format.
“The focus is different. It is on the meaning of data vs. the details of syntax,” he says.

Cast your vote yet for The Booksmash Challenge? If not, you’ve got a chance to pull the lever for semantic technology for the contest, which is sponsored by HarperCollins and asks developers to create proof-of-concept apps using its OpenBook API that includes full access to select authors’ work.
Entered in the challenge is the KEeReader, a browser-based e-reading platform that brings the ability to identify concepts, entities and relationships within content and allow users to interact with it. Its chief architect is Eric Freese, who gave audiences at this past spring’s SemTech conference in San Francisco a first look at the platform, and who will be providing attendees at the upcoming Semantic Technology & Business Conference in NYC the latest insights on its place in the evolving world of knowledge enhanced e-reading. KEeReader adds a semantic angle to its book discovery one, opening the door to a vastly richer experience, says Freese.
“The two main goals of this are first to bring e-books into being first- class citizens on the web,” he says, benefitting from search engine optimization techniques for discovery, subscription to open Web standards to leverage the world of web resources like Wiktionary, and even analytics about book use for publishers to use in their business strategies. “The second goal is to unlock knowledge contained within the book.”
Mankind has been trying to understand the nature of time since, well, since forever. How time works is a big question, with many different facets being explored by scientists, philosophers, even social-psychologists. Semantic technologists, however, are focusing a little more strategically, considering temporal data management for semantic data.
At the Semantic Technology and Business Conference in NYC, coming up in early October, Dean Allemang, principal consultant at Working Ontologist LLC will be hosting a panel on the topic of managing time in Linked Data. Relational database systems long have been tuned into dealing with bi-temporal data, which changes over two dimensions of time independently – that is, valid (real world) and transactional (database) time. Not so with RDF databases. But many institutions, in fields ranging from finance to health care, have no desire to go back.
“They’ll lose all the RDF powers they’re familiar with, all the semantic linkages,” says Allemang. “And if you want that kind of distributed data understood in your enterprise, a relational solution isn’t going to help.”
