About the Webinar

Register Now!Semantic technology solves a concrete problem: sorting through large collections of unstructured data. With unstructured data expected to account for over 80 percent of all data within the next five years, the ability to target this data using semantic technology opens doors to better understand context and intent in search, and ultimately achieve greater visibility and relevant results. This presentation will showcase how semantic technologies can understand article content and select contextually relevant adverts to most effectively monetize content for advertisers and publishers.

  • Discover how semantic technology helps thousands of advertisers reach their audience in a meaningful way, and helps hundreds of online publishers monetize their content.
  • Learn how semantic technology reduces errors and time spent by marketers when defining their campaigns and yield better overall results.
  • Understand some of the challenges that come with semantic technologies and how to address them ahead of time.
  • Go behind the scenes with semantic and linguistic processing of web pages.

We hope you will join us on October 15, 2014 for this free webinar.

The Simplicity of RDFa

Bob DuCharme, the presenter of next week’s webcast SPARQL Queries, SPARQL Technology recently wrote a brief article showing how simple RDFa can be. DuCharme begins, “I got so tired of hearing people complain about how confusing RDFa is that while I was on hold during a recent phone call I threw together a demo of just how simple it can be. The document has the two basic kinds of triples: one with a literal for an object, with data typing thrown in for good measure, and one with a resource URI as its object.” Read more

Semantic web and linked data technologies are built around a simple data model that makes it easy to share and combine data from disparate sources across the public internet or across silos on a private intranet. SPARQL is the query language standard from the W3C (the same standards body that brought us HTML, CSS, and XML) for querying this data. A variety of free and commercial software implementations have made it easy for people to get started with SPARQL and to incorporate it into applications that take advantage of the growing availability of linked data on the web.

Stéphane Corlosquet Talks About Drupal 7

We’ve been covering the release of Drupal 7 for a while and we noticed that Stéphane Corlosquet gave an interview this week regarding the recent release of Drupal 7, the CMS product used to power over 1% of the world’s websites. Updates in Drupal 7 include additions of semantic web technologies, and Stephane is a major factor behind these updates.

An important change in Drupal 7 is the incorporation of the RDFa standard. In the interview, Stéphane comments that adding RDFa was the “next logical step beyond XHTML.” When asked about the concerns of many web developers regarding the complexity of adopting semantic technologies, Stéphane replied:

“Semantic Web technologies don’t have to be complicated when applied to simple use cases! We purposely chose only of a subset of semantic web technologies to integrate into the core of Drupal, keeping the learning curve for the Drupal developers and users as low as possible.”

Stéphane has contributed several patches to the Drupal core and is a member of the Drupal security team. Last year, Stéphane gave an excellent overview of his work with Drupal in a webcast.
